  1. Hare Krsna! Pamho Sripad Advaita Das Ji. This is great news, your translations are amazing! I have the 2 volumes of Stavavaali, thanks to your recommendation that I contact Sripad Yugal Kishore DasJi. I have a question on Vilapa Kusumanjali. In the dedication page, you have mentioned that Srila Madrasi Baba had dictated to you on tape, the same notes of Srila Ananda Gopal Gosvami Prabhupada, that Srila Ananta Das Babaji Maharaj also many decades ago, wrote down what Madrasi Babaji had dictated. My question therefore is, is your work simply a translation of the exact commentary written down by Ananta Das Babaji in his bengali book, OR have you also included a few lines and passages perhaps not included by him, BUT WERE IN THE NOTES YOU GOT FROM MADRASI BABAJI. So is this V.K. a combination of both the works, or just Ananta Das Babajis work?

  2. Dear Sungazer, the purports of Ananta das Babaji include the purports of Ananda Gopal Goswami. There are a few small items in Ananda Gopal Goswami's purports which Anantadasji chose not to include. These are not included in my English translation. By the way, ten years after first hearing the notes from Madrasi Baba, one friend was so kind to record Madrasi Baba's Bengali reading after all.

  3. Thank you for the clarification Sripad Advaita Das Ji. I am also glad to note that somewhere out there, Srila Madrasi Babaji's dictation of his own notes in his own voice lives on! That his voice is now recorded and carefully preserved for the future generations, is something to be celebrated!
