In the Second Canto of Śrī Bṛhad-bhāgavatāmṛta, Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī examines all the manifestations and incarnations of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, culminating in Śrī Nandanandana, the beloved son of Śrī Nanda Mahārāja. He does so by narrating the story of Gopa-kumāra and his fascinating journey throughout the material and spiritual universes as he searches for the Lord of his heart. “Śrī Bṛhad-bhāgavatāmṛta alone is the main foundation of all the scriptures written by Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī, Śrīla Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī and so on. All the other books of our Gosvāmīs manifested from this one book alone.” [Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja]
what a journey
I think this is the best book I ever read. The story of Gopa Kumar searching for God in His highest and most personal form takes you on a tour of the spiritual cosmos. It is at the same time mind blowing but very personal and relatable.
