A Few Words on 'Prem Rasamrit Dhara'

'Prem Rasamrit Dhara'

It is a matter of great pleasure that Prem-Rasamrit Dhara, a compilation of letters centered on  satsang[1] related topics is going to be published by (Brajnidhi Prakashan). The collection of padas [2]composed by Shri Manohar Baba have already been published in ‘Smriti Kaumudi’ therefore they have not been included in this work. Condensed information on Baba’s life has also been given in this presentation so that readers can be somewhat acquainted with the one who has written these letters. Shri Baba was very closely connected to the parikar [3] of Shri Usha Bahenji, an embodiment of bhakti. Hence the members of her inner circle would be spiritually motivated and spontaneously obtained the company of his satsang at every step. You will get to see the inspiration of such members in these letters.

 Bahen Santosh Gupta had cherished and kept a collection of these letters with her like a priceless treasure. Some of them have been assembled from close people staying in far off distant places. This new compilation of 108 letters in total is presented in front of you intellectuals as ‘Prem Rasamrit Dhara.’ I do hope that the text proves to be spiritually instructive for all kinds of sadhakas[4]. The work of Santosh Gupta is certainly commendable and it symbolizes the dedicated devotion and immense affection she had for Baba.

Sushila Sharma 

[1] Satsang: is ‘company of the Absolute Truth’ where ‘Sat’ means the Absolute Truth i.e. God and ‘sang’ refers to the company of seekers or Saints. In short, the meaning of satsang is an environment that is conducive for experiencing the presence of God.
[2] Padas: a verse of devotional poetry, specially intended to be sung
[3] Parikar: inner circle of devotees
[4] Sadhakas: spiritual aspirants

Really a great work is going to be done which we cannot get this matter from any where in English as Baba always wanted to send this treasure to them who are not able to understand in Hindi & Sanskrit.So we are thankful to blog.
