Lesson in Detachment -- History of King Citraketu

While listening to any lectures by His Holiness Tamal Krishna Goswami, please keep in mind that these lectures were given over three decades. The times changed and therefore some of the comments are obviously relevant to that point in time only. However, at the same time, most of the content is inspired from the eternal teachings of the Vedic Literatures and Gaudiya Vaisnava sampradaya (disciplic succession). In that light, the messages on these lectures have eternal instructions that can benefit listeners regardless of time, place, and circumstances.

Description: A new feature: The Bhagavatamrita series, containing explorations of especially nectarean parts from the Srimad-Bhagavatam. This first volume describes contains classes recorded in Houston during the Summer of 1994 on selections from the history of King Citraketu, a great devotee of the Supreme Lord. He strongly desired to have a son but he could not have one. Finally he begot one son but then lost him again. At first he lamented greatly but then he received transcendental knowledge, began to meditate and attained the direct darshan of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, which meant the end of all his distress in this world of loss and gain. This series touches on this story but focuses on the beautiful prayers offered by the King to Lord Sankarsana, which are overflowing with transcendental knowledge. In his purports His Holiness elaborates on how to perfect one's surrender to the spiritual master, how to deepen one's chanting, how to better appreciate the fortune of having attained the association of devotees etc. Simultaneously powerful and sweet.
