Madhurya Kadambini available at Loi Bazar on line.

Madhurya Kadambini by Sri Vishvanatha Chakravartipada.
Bengali translation and commentary by Sri Ananta Das Babaji Maharaja.
Sri Krishna Chaitanya Shastra Mandir.

Among the most memorable works of the revered Gaudiya Vaishnava teacher Srila Vishwanath Chakravarti Thakur, the Madhurya Kadambini instructs us in the ways of bhakti yoga, mercifully infusing life into our devotional practice. In this elaborate explanation of Sri Rupa Goswami's adau sraddha verse, he details the devotee's progress from the beginnings of faith to the glorious attainment of prema, doing so in a clever, playful, and easily accessible manner.

The present edition is further enriched by the penetrating and insightful commentary of Radha-kunda Mahanta Sri Ananta Das Babaji Maharaja, a leading exponent of raganuga bhakti in the modern world. By studying these teachings, the mind of the sadhaka will enter the honey sweet kingdom of Vrindavan rasa, where it will relish the incomparable treasure of Sri Sri Radha Madhava's loving pastimes. Of this there can be no doubt!

Excellent edition.
