1. Rupa Gosvami’s greatest contribution

    We should always remember the instruction of Srila Rupa Gosvami. Therefore we pray, sri-caitanya-mano-‘bhistam sthapitam yena bhu-tale. Our mission is to establish the desire of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. That is our business. Sri-caitanya-mano-‘bhistam sthapitam yena bhu-tale. Srila Rupa Gosvami did it. He has given us so many books, especially Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu, which we have translated into English as Nectar of Devotion, to understand the science of devotional service. This is the greatest contribution of Srila Rupa Gosvami: how to become a devotee.
