It covers the from time of Shree Krishn's appearance and birthday celebration in Gokul, up until the Govardhan leela and Shree Krishn's crowning as the real Indra by Kamdhenu and Indra himself.
Along with describing the leelas, Swami Nikhilanand explains how one should listen to the leelas, the danger of applying one's intellect in Divine leelas, and the reason why hearing the leelas is so important for a devotee.

Several months ago, a member of the public, Mark Lorange, saw some of Swami Nikhilanand's lectures on youtube. He was impressed by Bhaiya's clear and practical representation of our Hindu dharm, and requested from Bhaiya if he could make a website for his audio lectures. The website is now up and running, and will allow visitors to listen to these sublime lectures via online streaming or through direct download.
Mark Lorange is a very skilled designer who has created many beautiful spiritual websites for Hindu religious organizations.

A series of discourses was recently given to the Bhutanese community in Fort Worth, Texas. Here are some glimpses. The organizer of the program commented:
"The holy words from Swamiji was really inspiring. The most facinating part was Swamiji's way of preaching. He didn't simply sit and preach. He was teaching like a teacher does in the class, using a marker and a whiteboard. We got to learn a lot from him"
