– What kind of poetry is Sri Gita-govinda? Who is qualified to study it?

– Gita-govinda is a special poetry book, full of transcendental mellows of devotional service, and it describes the exalted pastimes of the Para Brahman. There is no other such book in the world.

Since the ordinary readers cannot realize the conjugal mellows of the Supreme Lord and since they are fond of material enjoyment, their study of Sri Gita-govinda is not perfect.

The poet Jayadeva Goswami has not offered his book to such readers; rather he forbade them to study this book.

For persons who are inexperienced in the transcendental mellows of Vraja, discussing Jayadeva Goswami and his work is proof of their shamelessness. (Sajjana-toshani 7/2)

Natural Brotherhood (Bhaktivinoda Thakura):

BhaktiVinoda Thakura

"Gradually, when the offensive portions of the established religions are destroyed, there will be no more differences in the bhajana performed by the various Sampradayas nor any quarrel between them.

Then as brothers, the people of all castes and countries will spontaneously chant the Holy Names of the Supreme Lord together.

At that time, no one will hate anyone or consider others dogeaters; nor will anyone be overwhelmed by the pride of high birth.

The living entities will not forget the principle of natural brotherhood."
