Joy of Self is an introduction to the devotional Vedanta of Sri Caitanya. Sri Caitanya, the fifteenth-century Krishna avatara who personified a life of divine love, left in writing only eight Sanskrit stanzas. Yet his immediate followers churned these drops of nectar into an ocean of literature on divine love. This introduction draws from their writings and the sacred literature of spiritual India such that anyone can gain a well-rounded acquaintance with the foundational philosophical principles of Gaudiya Vedanta and thus come to know of the potential for joy inherent in the self. Joy of Self is as simple as it is profound. It is an absolute must read for anyone with an interest in spiritual practice.
