Gopaldas’ Vallabhakhyan is a lila praise of shri Krishna and the great 16th century bhakti masters Shrimad Vallabhacharya and his son Shri Vitthalnathji.
Gopal, a mute child until Shri Vitthalnathji dropped his chewed betal nut into his mouth, sang these nine impromptu praises, each one a devotional ecstasy. They are precious evidence of Gopaldas’ realization and his lila insights. Sung by millions of practitioners, these higher tastes of the enlightened bhakta heve been sensitively translated into English by Shri Shyamdasji, a practitioner of the Pushti tradition for over twenty-five years. This text has been supplemented with notes and historical background, as well as the original text and its transliteration.
