The eye of Devotion...

This is the Verse 38 of "Shree Brahma-Samhita" (translation of OM VishnuPad BhaktiSiddhanta Saraswati) and more than brilliant explanation of Shree ShyamaSundar Siddhanta in connection with Bhakti.

Translation: I worship Govinda, the Primeval Lord, Who is Shyamasundara, Krishna Himself with inconceivable innumerable Attributes, Whom the pure devotees see in their heart of hearts with the eye of Devotion tinged with the salve of love. (38)

Annotation by Vishnudut1926: It is nearly impossible to find English researches on Shree PanchaRatra (and Vaikhanasa-Agamas) as well as the English translations. 

This edition is unique, because it dwells on all the aspects of Shree PanchaRatra: 
starting from theoretical part (the refutation of anti-PanchaRatra statements from "Shree Kurma-Purana" or anti-PanchaRatra statements of Shankaracharya in "Shree Vedanta-Sutra) and finishing with the pure praxis (Chapters about Urdhva-Pundra, Archana and etc.)

Some notable Chapters devoted to Acharyas of Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya (Shree Sampradaya) and Shree PanchaRatra influence on Their Granthas. 

Moreover, there is even a Chapter devoted to OM VishnuPad MadhvAcharya in the light of Shree PanchaRatra and Vaikhanas. 

The laconic summaries of crucial PanchaRatra Granthas are also attached: "Shree Lakshmi-Tantra", "Shree Ahirbudhnya-Samhita", "Shree Sanat-Kumara-Samhita" and some others. 

So, this research is greatly recommended - it took about 2 weeks for me to study this Book - the text is really massive and very insightful to read!
