O mind, I grasp your feet and beg you with sweet words: Please cast away all hypocrisy and develop intense, unprecedented love for my spiritual master, Vrajabhumi, the people of Vraja, the Vaisnavas, the brahmanas, the Gayatri mantra, the holy name, and the transcendental shelter that is the fresh young couple of Vraja, Radha and Krsna.

This book is volume 1 of a two-volume set. Volume 2 is also available on Amazon. Additionally, there is a Kindle version which combines both volumes. This is a edition produced by Padma, Inc. The seekers of truth, with great hope, embark on the path of spiritual enlightenment.
Their hearts fill with affection for guides and teachers, associates on the journey, and self-realized souls. Their aim becomes pure love of God, without even attraction for enjoying divine opulences. But the path has traps and tricksters. There is a thief who appears to be an eye-catching amorous partner, and a hungry tigress who lures with discussions of eternal light and peace. A jewel of love enables the seekers to recognize and avoid those, but will they succumb to the gang of robbers with strong ropes before they swim through the ocean of love and drink the radiant nectar that opens the door to perfection Many treatises on spiritual life seem to make everything seem so easya simple formula for instant success if one is just sincere enough.
Other books cater to the hopeful who keep failing and want formulas of reassurance. Yet other authors speak to the disappointed to condemn spiritual realization as a myth, which cheaters propagate for personal gain. In contrast, Splendid Instructions to the Mind Manah-shiksha is at once both hopefully inspiring and blatantly honest.
To read it well entails an authentic appraisal of the state of ones heart and mind, an experience of recognition and acceptance that is at once sweet and sour, comforting and uncompromising. To read it well entails receiving many glowing gifts to triumph over our lower nature and reveal our true spiritual essence, so that all struggles and illusion become a distant dream.
Manah-shiksha helps us make sure our compass is set to the right direction, and our heart is attuned to the mood of the spiritual world. Read more Read less.

Very inspiring book set from a lifelong scholar and bhakti teacher. Really brings Raghunath Dasa Goswami's text alive. Love the paintings and numerous illustrations commissioned for these volumes. Very highly recommended to any bhakti yogi or Vedic reader delving into the ancient teachings.
This book contains very relevant, valuable and practical information for any serious practitioner of bhakti yoga. The book is well written and easy to study. Illustrations are very thoughtfully done and highlight the points from the text. I wish i had it years earlier! This is the book i will read over and over again to hopefully uncover all the layers of carefully packed realizations and eye- heart- openers.
Wonderful translations and commentaries of these enlightening verses by Srila Raghunatha das Goswami. The illustrations and first ever English publications of Bhaktivinoda Thakura's songs are a delight.
Inspiring to hear contemporary bhakti-yoga practitioners insights and understandings on these essential Gaudiya Vaisnava teachings. Best English version I've read by far. Candy for the intellect. Simply breathe taking I was left spell bound on a psycho-social level. A authentic Vedic description of the mind and the soul. This is an excellent insightful book on diving deep into sincere devotional practice by overcoming the relentless obstacles presented by the mind.
