This book is compiled from the lectures of Srila Gurudeva, Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayaṇa Gosvamī Maharaja. At the end of the eighteenth chapter of the Bhagavad-gītā, what is sarva-guhyatama, or the most secret of all secrets, is given. It is full of rasa, and is the highest limit of bhakti. If someone’s mind is fully absorbed in the lotus feet of Śrī Krsna, then that is the highest form of worship.

Out of the seven hundred verses of the Bhagavad-gītā, Verse 18.65 captures the essence of the entire Gītā: “Absorb your mind and heart in Me, become My devotee, worship Me, offer your praṇāma to Me, and then certainly you will come to Me. I make this promise to you because you are very dear to Me.” The first three chapters of Nectar of Govinda-līlā explain the three elements of this verse in relation to our aim to enter Goloka Vṛndāvana. Other chapters contain a colourful description, infused with pure Gauḍīya siddhānta, of Vasanta-pañcami, the first day of Spring, and other such nectar.
