Editorial note

The first edition of this essay appeared in German in September 2006. After its release, many comments by devotional practitioners were made, concerning its subject matter. Although many devotees gave very positive feedback, still some critique arose. These comments and criticisms gave rise to further investigation into the scriptures and many new findings. The main points of the critiques had been the understanding of vaidhi-bhakti and the discussion about the »four regulative principles« of A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja. In the following forword, these points of critique are discussed. The essay itself in the first English edition has been enhanced and slightly revised according to the comments of the devotees. The second English edition is further revised in terms of English language and grammar. Special thanks to Niscala devi dasi from Australia. Another text about the meaning of vaidhi-bhakti is available in German (»Was ist sadhana?«), an analysis and purport of the 22nd chapter of Caintanya Caritamrta Madhya-lila (Sanatana siksa) where Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu personally explains vaidhi-bhakti-sadhana and raganuga-bhakti-sadhana to Srila Sanatana Goswami. It is posted on the website. The translation into English will follow.

Natural Bhakti

Bhakti without fear – the lost science of attraction (rati)

Bhakti is the natural function of the soul. The science of attraction is an approach to Bhakti that works with this natural function. This requires the absence of force. By forcible demands and strict rules a pressure is developed that is unfavorable for Bhakti. No pressure is necessary and the transcendental position of Bhakti means that she is not dependent on karma-kanda (pious activities), jnana and vairagya (knowledge and renounciation), but self-manifesting. Bhakti is the transcendental emotion of bhava, a feeling. Without the pressure of moral and ideological affright no fear and guilt is provoked. Then Bhakti grows in a natural and very intense way. Bhakti is completely independent. Bhakti only comes from Bhakti, as Srimad Bhagavatam states in 11.3.31: bhaktya sanjatayah bhaktya. Natural Bhakti is Bhakti beyond fear and guilt, an integral approach that is based on freedom and equal vision.

The names of Goddess and God in the ancient Indian spiritual tradition of Bhakti are Sri Radha and Sri Krishna. They reside in a realm called Vrindavan. Radha and Krishna meet in the forests of Vrindavan in secluded places in order to enjoy their love and share their feelings.
Hit Harivamsa, a 16th century devotee, describes in a sweet poetic and divine voice the intimate pastimes of the Divine Couple. We become witnesses to a divine and spiritual relationship. According to Hit Harivamsa ›Bhaav‹, feeling and emotion, is the main ingredient for devotion to Sri Sri Radha-Krishna.
The Hit Chaurasi is one of the famous scriptures of the Bhakti-tradition, yet this edition is the first translation into a Western language by an authentic spiritual practitioner. The translation and the commentaries of Pratibha Goswami are soaked with the divine ecstatic love to Godhead.
She is a descendent of the famous Krishna-poet Jayadeva Goswami who wrote his Gita Govinda in the 13th century. Pratibha lived in the holy town of Vrindavan since her birth.

»These eyes are so greedy, even in a nano second of difference when blinking, Sri Shyam sundar feels that he has not seen Sri Radha for millions of years.« (vers 60, 4)
