The complete science of Bhakti Yoga

The Nectar of Devotion takes one into the heart of Bhakti. These chosen chapters are all about Krishna, His qualities and personality that make Him all attractive and the object of loving affection for His innumerable devotees. Take a break from the humdrum of material life and join us as we take a peak into the spiritual world, the destination for those who pursue the path of bhakti.

The Nectar of Devotion teaches us how to stimulate our original love for Kṛṣṇa and how to be situated in that position where we can enjoy our blissful life.


The Nectar of Devotion is a unique spiritual text that explains the devotional science of bhakti-yoga, or Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Astonishingly intimate in its detailed descriptions of the loving relationships between Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa and His devotees, it is at the same time practical, authoritative and philosophically substantial. It is a summary study of Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu, which was written in Sanskrit over 400 years ago by the great philosopher-devotee Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī Prabhupāda, and it contains hundreds of quotes from such important Vedic literatures as Bhagavad-gītā, Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, the Upaniṣads, Mahābhārata and the Purāṇas.

The Nectar of Devotion has been called the “lawbook of Kṛṣṇa consciousness,” for it is the text which guides the devotees of the Hare Kṛṣṇa movement in the details of their daily lives. It elaborately explains the philosophical background behind the many rules and regulations that devotees of Kṛṣṇa voluntarily follow, and it probes deeply into the thoughts and emotions that motivate a Kṛṣṇa conscious devotee.

Most importantly, The Nectar of Devotion goes beyond the limitations of both empty religious sentiment and dry, impersonal philosophy. It brings the reader to a factual understanding of the eternal activities of the spiritual world and offers practical step-by-step instructions which can enable the serious student to actually enter into these pastimes, in a personal, face-to-face loving relationship with Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The subject matter is love of God. The basic principle of life is that we all have a general propensity to love someone. At the present moment, human society teaches one to love his country or family or his personal self, but there is no information where to repose the loving propensity so that everyone can become happy. That missing point is God, or Kṛṣṇa. The Nectar of Devotion teaches us how to stimulate our original love for Kṛṣṇa and how to be situated in that position where we can enjoy our blissful life.

The Nectar of Devotion takes one into the heart of Bhakti. The Eastern Ocean (chapters 1-19) explain the process of devotion as the means to attain Krishna. The first wave of the Southern Ocean, beginning with chapter 20 and continuing through to chapter 26 is all about Krishna, His qualities and personality that make Him all attractive and the object of loving affection for His innumerable devotees. Take a break from the humdrum of material life and join us as we take a peak into the spiritual world, the destination for those who pursue the path of bhakti.
