  Aesthetic VedantaAesthetic Vedanta : The Sacred Path of Passionate Love by Swami B. V. Tripurari

There are many books...that talk about spiritual love in its highest form, the cosmic dance between the lover and beloved and their passage through stages of separation and union. One of my favorites is the Essential Rumi. To this collection, and in my humble opinion, to the forefront comes this remarkable work by Swami Tripurari. In it he tells the sacred love story of Radha and Krishna, who personify the transcendental forms of the highest potential of the human soul and God respectively, seeking nothing other than merging in love on the level where divinity and humanity fully embrace one another. There are so many excellent topics in this book to contemplate that on numerous occasions while reading it I decided I would go back to school and do research on several of them. For example, Vedanta was never associated for me with ecological wisdom, nor have I seen much written about it. In this book, the divine play of Radha and Krishna occurs in the fields and forests where animals roam, transforming everything into a sacred sanctuary. It is in one sense an inspiring message of love for the Earth. But it is the unbridled, unconditional love of the mystics of this tradition that stands out the most. Their urge to tread this path comes not from obligation, necessity, fear, need of security, or desire for material gain, rather from a deeply spiritualized erotic impulse fueled by tangible visionary experience of the Absolute. Theirs is an experience of, for lack of better words, pure beauty. The nectar of this beauty emanates from every page of Swami's work. -- Review by Al Okas, Gaia Books
