PURPORT
The Bhakti-ratnākara refers to the following books by Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī: (1) Bṛhad-bhāgavatāmṛta, (2) Hari-bhakti-vilāsa and his commentary known as Dig-darśinī, (3) Līlā-stava and (4) the commentary on the Tenth Canto of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam known as Vaiṣṇava-toṣaṇī. Sanātana Gosvāmī compiled many, many books, all with the aim of describing how to serve the principal Deities of Vṛndāvana-Govinda and Madana-gopāla. Later, other Deities were gradually established, and the importance of Vṛndāvana increased.
