In his Fore Almost thirty years since the publication of his first book on japa, Japa Reform Notebook, Satsvarupa dasa Goswami has produced yet another volume solely dedicated to the subject of the improving chanting of the holy names and is drawing from his experiences on the retreats in his bhajana-kutir in Delaware, when chanting extra number of rounds and rising early.
How could a senior devotee, revered as a renunciant and as an adept spiritual teacher, so openly communicate his own personal challenges in the practice of chanting Hare Krishna?
Yet others were enlivened to see that a frank discussion of the challenges to pure chanting was being aired As in the previous book, Goswami locates himself as both a student and a teacher, as one who continues to learn from his own guru and who aims to help others benefit from what he learns. In this book he asks readers to spend time with him as he questions the extent and depth of his own successes and the meaning of occasional apparent setbacks in practice as he takes one through a sustained personal meditation on the eight verses of the Siksastakam, Sri Caitanya’s verses that encapsulate his teachings.
The author’s testimony, daily routine of ceaseless spiritual prayer and meditation practice, is the transformative process of consciousness that the author is pursuing with rigorous discipline until the ultimate promise is fulfilled. The transcendental spiritual goal of attainment, or more precisely the direct experience of one’s spiritual immortal Reality and eternal loving relationship with God, is possible in the ‘here and now.
Japa Reform Notebook : Satsvarupa Dasa Goswami :
The author describes a path that is not without moments of great challenge and discouragement. In other words, the epic journey to full experiential realization of our ontological identity is a goal not easily attained, but irresistibly fascinating, and even if only partly achieved the satisfaction that a person experiences as a result of sincere endeavors on a spiritual path is inexpressible.
The fortunate reader who willingly chooses to put into active daily practice the wisdom guidance offered will eventually progressively experience ineffable happiness, divine wisdom and immortal Love.
And this may happen, as we well know, only if the intellectual understanding is slowly integrated, shaped and finally transcended by an authentic spiritual experience. Kindle Editionpages.
