We all know that Kṛṣṇa's līlā in Vṛndāvana is sweet, but do we truly understand the depth and extent of this sweetness, and the key factors that contribute to it? What exactly distinguishes Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa's līlā in Braja, the Vrajavāsīs, and Braja itself from all other pastimes and places of Kṛṣṇa? And what exactly makes The Sweetness of Braja so unique and special – is there a secret behind its unmatched sweetness?

This book offers, for the first time in history, a comprehensive and accurate explanation of The Sweetness of Braja, in great detail and in a systematic order. It contains all the key verses of the Gauḍīya śāstras and the most important ṭīkās (purports) of the Ācāryas. This book is a summary of a vast part of all Gauḍīya-śāstras, and to compile it, the most important academic essays and books were also analyzed, to provide comprehensive coverage of this deep and far-reaching subject. In addition, the book provides a great insight into Vedic culture and gives clarity on what really constitutes Vedic culture.

The first Volume contains more than 120 chapters of the Sweetness of Braja.

What if I tell you there is a secret amongst us Vaiṣṇavas, which is not known by the most devotees...?
Kṛṣṇa is full of nectar, and astonishing exploits, and also secrets. But what if I tell you, there is a secret about Him which should not be a secret?

kṛtārtho ’smi kṛtārtho ’smi niścito bhagavan guro
guhyaṁ goloka-māhātmyaṁ yad ahaṁ sevitas tvayā

About the Author

Sītānātha was born in Switzerland in 1991, and grew up in a Christian family, in which religiosity was definitely present, but not over dominating. In 2016, he converted to Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇavism. He is now married, has a son and lives now in Kaunas, Lithuania. He was always fond of books, but it was the bhakti-śāstras he truly fell in love. In his free time, he spends time with his family and reading.

When asked what his favorite book is, Sītānātha would compare it to choosing from a box of chocolates - it's hard to choose.
But most likely he would choose Śrīmad Bhāgavata, Caitanya Caritāmṛta, and in particular the books from Rūpa Goswami and Raghunātha das Goswami; Bhakti-Rasāmṛta-Sindhu, Rādhā Kṛṣṇa Gaṇoddeśa Dīpikā, Vilāpa Kusumāñjali (Stavāvalī), and Govinda-līlāmṛta from Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja Gosvāmī.
