How to follow the path of pure devotion.

By Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur

Translated from a Bengali quotation published in Sri Gaudiya Darsan,
Volume 1, Issue 9, on Tuesday, 10 April 1956.

Only when the soul becomes a follower of Sri Rupa will the glory of Sri Gaurasundar be manifest in their sleeping heart. Overstepping Sri Rupa, everything you go to do will effect your own misfortune. If you desire to understand the nectar of devotion (bhakti-rasa) described by Sri Rupa, who was taught by Sri Gaura, then live a life of pure devotion. Associate with sadhus by trying to understand the difference between the way of following Sri Rupa observed by Srimad Bhakti Vinod Thakur and the conceptions and opinions of other persons; then, certainly, you will enter the path of pure devotion.
