Been working on a new book about the glories, specialties, and pastimes of Srila Rupa Gosvami. Here are the mangalacarana verses Prabhuji composed:
In Vraja-bhūmi, the abode of transcendental love, the gopīs are the very forms of vraja-rasa. By the mercy of Śrī Guru, one can enter Vṛndāvana, be connected to līlā-śakti, and come under the guidance of the gopīs. The gopīs can grant darśana of transcendental Vṛndāvana, the effulgent realm of spiritual bliss. Śrīla Gurudeva is the expansion of līlā-śakti, therefore he gives qualification to enter Vraja-bhūmi.
āvirbhūta hṛdayāṁ cid-ātma-svarūpam
Guru-vāṇī is transcendental sound that leads one to Navadvīpa-dhāma, the realm of gaura-rasa. Upon going there, the nature to perform nāma-saṅkīrtana arises. By engaging in nāma one is caught up in the flow of rasa and the spiritual form of the soul is revealed. Therefore, one should have complete faith in guru-vāṇī. Guru-vāṇī is the one and only support of spiritual life.
Vraja-bhakti is parakīyā-rasa; there is no chance of vraja-bhakti without parakīya-rasa. The Six Gosvāmīs, under the guidance of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, established this conception. This parakīyā-rasa is present in every particle of Vraja and every pore of the Vrajavāsīs. By staying with a maha-bhāgavata Vrajavāsī one can achieve this anurāga, transcendental love and attraction for Bhagavān Śrī Kṛṣṇa.
That person who accepts parakīyā-bhāva as supreme becomes dear to Śrī Rūpa Mañjari. Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī is always engaged in fulfilling the innermost heart’s desire of Śrī Gaurahari. Himself being always absorbed in the exclusive service of Vraja, Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī grants entrance into vraja-sevā to those who are greedy to serve in parakīya-rasa. By coming under the guidance of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī it is possible to realize that mādhurya, sweetness, of Śrīmatī Rādhārānī, to relish which Kṛṣṇa Himself followed the footsteps of the gopīs by assuming the form of a sannyāsī.
