  abstract = {Visvanatha Cakravartin (ca. 1660-1754 A. D.) of the Caitanya school of Bengal Vaisnavism, who spent most of his life at Vrndavana enjoys a great reputation amongst the Caitanyites even today as a writer and commentator of the classics of Bhakti. The work, whose translation follows, is a condensed rendering of the famous Bhaktirasamrtasindhuh by Rupa Goswamin, Caitanya's most brilliant disciple and theologian. It systematically explains the various kinds and stages of devotion to Krsna. Under the category of 'ritualistic devotion' (vaidhih bhaktih) it enumerates the constituent parts of Krsna-worship, the offences against this worship, the power of the name of Hari and the sins against it. The greater part of the exposition is devoted to 'passionate devotion' (raganuga bhaktih) leading up to highest love (prema). It is highly interesting because of its religious psychology which utilizes and adapts the insights arrived at by the Indian literary critics. The work has gained a certain actuality because of the quite rapid expansion of the Krsna-Consciousness-Movement, whose founder (a Caitanyite from Bengal) follows in his popular writings more or less the ideas developed in the Bhaktirasamrtasindhubinduh.},
