Inside this Vilāpa-kusumāñjali, A Bouquet of Woeful Entreaties, Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī prays for rādhā-niṣṭhā, one-pointed devotion and attachment to the service of Śrīmatī Rādhārānī’s lotus feet. He taught everyone vairāgya, renunciation and the process of pure bhajana, how to achieve vraja-sevā and the blessings of svarūpa-śakti and the Vraja-devīs. Gurudeva brings a flow of rasa like a river. This is a river, not a lake, meaning, this rasa is continuously flowing. In Vilāpa-kusumāñjali, Stavāvali and other books, Dāsa Gosvāmī brought this flow. If anyone bathes in or drinks this, he will be attracted to the service of the Divine Potency, Śrīmatī Rādhikā.
Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī starts this book by encouraging us to follow rāga-mārga, the path of spontaneous loving devotion. One who does not want to cross over this material ocean should not read this book. On the other hand, one who desires to follow the process of rāgānuga-bhakti and achieve kṛṣṇa-prema and rādhā-dāsyam will regularly pray with these verses of Vilāpa-kusumāñjali and will keep this book close to his heart like a cherished friend and guardian.
