Let me explain how I intend my book to be used. It is called A Practitioner’s Handbook because it is meant for use in daily meditation. Study “Entering Braj” and get an understanding of how the process works. Meditate on this and see what natural impulses arise in you. What are your inclinations?
Slowly go through “Blazing Saffire” and picture yourself in the various scenes. Where do you stand? What are you doing? How do you feel?
Daily meditate on the “Braj Meditation (Short)” and picture yourself in those scenes. As you have time during the day, meditate on what Radha-Krishna are doing at that time. Involve yourself as an active participant. How do you relate to the other characters? What is your role? By just providing the essentials, this short mediation allows free imagination.
When ready, move on to “Braj Meditation (Long)” and do the same thing. Be open to your inklings, intuitions, and desires. Picture how you would like to spend eternity interacting with these people. What is your role?
These things take time and should not be rushed. It’s best if you develope your spiritual identity from within based on natural impulses for relating to Radha-Krishna. Love cannot be bound. Here’s a quote from my autobiography that explains more about the process:
In his spiritual body, Lalita Prasad Thakur considered himself a girlfriend of Radha. He said the only way to attain this position is by the grace of someone already in that position. Traditionally, it’s a confidential circle entered by invitation only. He entered it by the good will of his father and teacher, Bhaktivinode Thakur, who entered it by the good will of his teacher, Bipin Bihari Goswami.
I pass this most confidential information on through my books. Although I don’t accept formal disciples, anyone who reads my books may accept me as their spiritual teacher and guide, receive my blessings, and my warm open invitation to all to become Radha-Krishna’s girlfriends. This entails an ever new bestowal of love and hope in our lives without becoming a slave to a guru. Thus I welcome everyone to participate in this greatest human good.
