Jewels of the Heart
If you are seeking to understand the true meaning of service and devotion, then ‘Jewels of the Heart’ is a well-spring of transcendental nectar, leading us to the realisation of an eternal bliss far beyond this world.
By the causeless mercy of our eternal Gaudiya Guru Parampara and our spiritual master Sri Śrīpāda Bhaktivedānta Vana Mahārāja, we have recorded this audiobook of his original text entitled ‘Jewels of the Heart’, for the benefit of all beings. ‘Jewels of the heart’ is an indispensable guide to chanting the holy names of the Lord, particularly the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra.
Invaluable for the beginner and experienced spiritual aspirant alike, in beautiful depth the book discusses the various aspects of the holy name; including stages of chanting such as nāma-ābhāsa, the ten offenses to the holy name, how one can become free from these offenses and later, bhajana-praṇālī or the process of performing bhajan.

Author of Shri Harinama Cintamani
srila bhaktivinoda thakura
A prominent preceptor in the Gaudiya succession of spiritual masters, Bhaktivinod Thakur was a pioneering spiritual leader, a householder, a magistrate working in colonial India under the British rule, a prolific writer, preacher and poet. He authored many texts, reintroducing the pure teachings of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu at a time when they were largely lost. He also composed hundreds of devotional songs in glorification of Lord Krishna, making a vital contribution to the Gaudiya Vaishnavism of today, uplifting the consciousness of the millions of suffering people across the world.
Sri Harinam Cintamani is one his later works, comprising a conversation between Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Srila Haridasa Thakur on the Holy Name. The conversation appeared to him in a vision, while absorbed in meditation, and he later combined it with other Gaudiya Vaishnava literature to publish this beautiful and unique book.
