(Some Extracts)

 

Thank you very much for these wonderful Audio Lectures on the Mahaprakash Lila which You have placed on Your website. It is almost 17 hours of pure bliss to listen to. Jaya Swami Gaurangapada! --- Daniel, Belgium.

--------------------------------

Thank you for facilitating enhanced viewing of all the great services to their Lordships online, I am benefitting from chanting the two new ( to me mantras of Gauranga and Nityananda following your guidance with  the online audio samples. I have some nice reflections and experiences through this with some Hare Krishna chanting which I could share in the allocated section of the website at some stage, but in essence the tremendous revelation is that one is in touch with The Real and not some concocted nonsense found elsewhere and posing as religion. The Lord reveals tiny fragments of His inconceivable potency that make absoloute reality and sense to the devotee on his or her own personal level. Reading the Chaitanya Bhagavata puts one in touch with the personality of the Lord how full of sweet humour and divine jokes He is! Just reading a few of His pastimes with His close ones brings such a superb rasa or flavour of the Absoloute. --- Michael, UK.

--------------------------------
It was invigorating to transcribe the Chaitanya Bhagavata lectures and commentaries.  I am really thoroughly enjoying learning about these Associates of Lord Gauranga whom hitherto I just had pictures of and put on my altar and uttered their names, now they are starting to mean something to me, so thank you for engaging me in this way. Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! --- Chandrika Gauranga dasi.

--------------------------------

Your new website design is most certainly the most inspired,well thought out,so wonderfully designed,and the content is  drenched in the loving nectar of Nityananda Gauranga. Without your website,  I would be totally devoid of your most precious assocation. --- Lila Gauranga dasa, UK.

--------------------------------

It really is a great portal page. It must have taken hours and hours to do all that. It is now a much simpler navigational system and it includes so much  nectar. --- Chandrika Gauranga dasi, UK.

--------------------------------

Just a quick note of pleasure. I found a computer shop in town who is able to burn the Chaitanya Bhagavata lectures to MP3 for a very small fee. I am so pleased that I will be able to continually listen to them on my dvd player at home without the high costs at internet shops. Thanks for your service in this area I will treasure these lectures with all my heart.  --- Nava Gauranga dasa, Australia.

--------------------------------

Matus from Spain accepted Gauranga Ashraya Mahadiksha this week being very inspired by chanting the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga for one month and by reading the Website.

--------------------------------

I went to the website.  It's wonderful how everything has been arranged. And I especially liked the part about the worship of Nitai Gauranga Deities. It's wonderful. ---Vishvambhara-priya devi dasi.

--------------------------------

My family are doing very well and the influence of nityananda and gauranga is very astounding , my wife , who is self admitted to being non-religious , is often chanting hare krishna , and she says she does not know why !! Our 4 year old boy is often chanting pancha tattva mantra now , and they quite , the 2 year old girl is often singing gauranga , and has taken to prabhupada , often calling his name , they are all getting attracted even unknowingly thanks to your mercy and the mercy of our supreme lords ! it is good to see , and certainly shocking to me , as previously they would spend most of the day arguing and crying , thay still do sometimes but , all glories to the lord these changes are happening very quickly ! this is indeed miraculous ! nityananda ! gauranga ! he !! hare krishna , please accept my obeisances and love , please give to the other precious devotees of gauranga ! --- Shachinandana dasa, UK.

--------------------------------

Now I have understood that Puri Dhama can not be disturbed by any kind of natural calamity. Our group member Shri Tiwariji has got male baby after his two female daughters by chanting Nityananda Gauranga and requesting Lords Nityananda Gauranga for a male child. He is very happy, pleased and satisfied. As per your instruction, I will humbly impart them Gauranga Ashraya Diksha in the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas --- Hema Gauranga dasa, India.

--------------------------------

Thank you very much for sending this nectar. It is very inspiring when you

share your taste for the holy name.  --- Mridani dasi, Belgium.

--------------------------------

The 108 sverses of the Mahastotra glorifying the holy names of Lord Gauranga and Lord Nityananda (Hindi version) are very enlightening to sing daily. My plan is to translate these verses into regional languages. Is there a English version available? I have already talked to one of office collegues who said her father can take up this task of translating it into their language. I wanted some copies (50 nos each) of the two small booklets "What is Gauranga Dharma?" and "Lord Gauranga in the Vedas". Meanwhile I am also looking at the possibility of getting them printed locally here. --- Bilvamangala Thakura dasa, India.

--------------------------------

I have to say I feel very blessed to come in contact with your preaching efforts in regards to the prime importance of fallen souls to chant the two mantrarajas of Nityananda and Gauranga.

For many years I have been involved with many sangas and have always felt surpised that more stress is not given to associating with Lord Chaitanya through His potent names and lila.

Intuitively I always new this should be done but it seemed that only few understood this point. Personally I always had my nose in Chaitanya Bhagavata and Chaitanya Charitamrita because that was where the real accessible nectar was for myself.

--------------------------------

At one time I even went so far as giving up associating with any sanga and started a church called Temple of The Heart which mainly focused primarly on taking more shelter of Lord Chaitanya and His associates.

Since lately I have been living in India, staying more neutral and aloof from vaishnava groups. I ran accross your web page and thought to try out the methods advocated.

--------------------------------

Well, Let me tell you very quickly I experienced results that went way beyond my expectations. I thought if this chanting would work I would at least have to wait a few days as the scriptures said that were quoted. That did not happen. Within minutes I felt cleared of some very stuborn offenses that were keeping me from living a life full with a mood of love, forgiveness and compassion. Obviously even though I have been regularly chanting the Mahamantra for years as my accepted authorities had advocated, due to my previous sins of being born a meateater and in a western culture, I was not so qualified to develop taste and freedom from offenses in chanting.

--------------------------------
But by first taking up chanting the all powerful Name of Nityananda and then Gauranga. All I can say with a heart full of gratefullness, Wow! Wow! Wow! I feel a very close , and wonderful relationship growing with the source of these mantras. I have the feeling that this is a small portion of what these two transcendenal brothers want to freely offer all us degraded fallen souls of Kali Yuga. From my heart I just want to tell this to the world what a wonderous treat that is instore for those who take shelter in this practical and simple way of chanting their munificiant holy names.

--------------------------------

I could say so much more but I know you are a very busy person intrusted with a very great mission. Thank you for coming to this desert like planet and acting like a good servant and spreading the real water around to the thirsty souls here.

Hare bol, Gaurahari dasa (India).

--------------------------------

These are real inspiring quotes by Swami Gauranga pada. I am new here to the discussion forums. I was thinking that it would interesting to start a discussion subtopic about the results devotees are getting from Chanting Nityananda’s and Gauranga’s mantrarajas. It has been such a blessing for me and continues to be. It would be interesting and inspiring to hear some sharings about the effects that devotees are personally expeienceing through their own personal chanting of the Mantrarajas.

--------------------------------

Many Christians share in a similar way how their worship of Jesus is improving the quality of their own lives. Many people have joined Christianty after hearing such sharings. Of course It especially important to hear the acharyas realizations about these things but it can also be very inspiring to hear how Gaura and Nitai are impacting the lives of the common folk who are taking shelter of them. After all they came to give shelter save the most fallen. I would be inspiried to here such personal accounts.

--------------------------------

Of course since I am proposing this I will begin with my own sharing.

The following is an exerpt from my own diary when I first began chanting the Nityananda mantraraja

--------------------------------

Wed March 31st 2004

Yesterday I was reading some interesting ideas on the Gauranga dham discussion forum. I got inspired to try the Nityananda mantraraja as they recommend. For years I was always naturally attracted to Gauranga’s lila. Intuitively I wanted to chant these names but I did not find support from any living authority confirming the directions I found in devotional books to do this.

--------------------------------

The results were fantastic as I very quickly began feeling a closness, affinity, understanding, connection and liking for Lord Nityananda’s mood. By His mercy I got to sample a drop of His blissful ecstactic almost drunken like madness when I began spontaneously laughing out loud while I was walking in public chanting to myself. I felt so drunk with ecstacy that I did not even care what people throught of my abrupt outburst that would obviously seem a bit crazy. My My! what kind wine is in this chanting of the Name of Nityandanda?

--------------------------------

In a quote they mentioned on Gauranga dharma website, from Bhaktivinode Thakur it said that in only a few days one would get profound results from Chanting Nityananda’s name, but for me so much mercy coming even more quickly even within minutes of chanting this beautiful name of Nityananda. Maybe also chanting here in Radhakunda must be giving some extra effect.

--------------------------------

For over twenty five years I have read the pastimes of Lord Chaitanya and felt more of an affinity for Gauranga and more distance from Nityananda. But now that is all changed by starting to chant Nityananda’s Holy name. I can now begin to see the immense importance of chanting Nityananda’s holy name, because I can feel it tangably removing stubborn offenses from my heart that I was previously unaware of and obviously would not go no matter what other process of devotional service I was engaged in. I did not know that there was still some resentment and blame in my heart that I was still holding twards a Vaishnava who displayed some faulty behaviour. I resented and blamed him for losing my relationship with my wife. Nityananda is not only revealing this to me but he also removing it and filling my heart with soothing balm of love and forgiveness! Ki Jay….

--------------------------------

Since then while chanting Nityananda’s glorious name, occasionally I have felt moved to write down some aspirations in glorification of his mercy.

--------------------------------

Only Beggars Make Progress

Oh Nityananda goswami pada! Every new day I come and sit at the door of your holy name. Knowing better now that in truth I am only a beggar. I have nothing of value to offer you but my full attention. I don’t even have a drop of love for you, only the burden of sin accumulated in countless misguided lives. If you want to give me true happiness which is the ability to taste the intoxicating love nectar that emenates from your glorious holy name or make me sit here withering up because of lack of this life giving water. It is up to you and your grace because whether you give your mercy or seemingly withhold it I am your trusting surrenderd plant and I know your actions are all absolute and always for my ultimate benefit. What is within my real power is only to sit like a simple hearted dog before his masters table waiting with great hope and expectation. I do this because of hearing of Your unsurpassed magnanimous nature from those genuine authorities who have truly received your mercy. They say that you are incarnation of causeless grace who does not take any notice of the qualifications of those who fall down at your feet and take shelter of you.

--------------------------------

Impossible Can Be Made Possible

Oh most merciful Lord Visvambara it is my bold aspiration to drink deeply with tears and trembling of loving ecstacy the indescribable nectar emanating from your playful pastimes which illuminate the amazing qualities of the loving surrendered behavior of your pure devotees and I pray for the ability to relish with great loving bliss your magnanimous nature and loving mercy shown towards them. The ability to taste this is the only true ambrosia of immortality that can save and maintain a fallen soul in this world.

--------------------------------

Jai Nitai

Jai Nitai! Finally, now I am able to come before your holy name possessed of unlimited spiritual strength because I can really see I have no strength or good qualities of my own.

--------------------------------

Being stranded for a long time on this desolate island of the material world I have accumlulated nothing but burdens of false treasures that have that bewildered my mind.

--------------------------------

In ignorance always thinking I was very qualified and spiritually advanced I could not approach your feet.

--------------------------------

I am truly a beggar now coming before you with my cup full of a heavy burden of alms collected from this world of woes.

--------------------------------

I have heard from the previous authorities that calling upon your Holy Name, Nityananda, is the only hope to liberate a fallen wretched soul like me.

 

--- Gaurahari dasa (India)

---------------------------------

 

The most merciful and powerful Gauranga Mantraraja is becoming more and more popular in this world and even Yogis are realizing that it is the Topmost King of All Mantras in Kali Yuga:

 

http://www.wailana.com/yoga/music/reviews.php?cd=rest

 

-NAPRA ReView, September/October 2002

 

As part of a trilogy, Rest and Relax introduces two specific relaxation techniques. "Free Your Mind" familiarizes us with gauranga breathing, which calms the mind as you chant "gau-ra-an-ga" with each inhalation and exhalation. A challenge at first, this is a powerful, visceral experience. "Relax Your Body" utilizes yoga nidra to effectively relax the body from the toes up. Track 3, "Soothe the Soul," calls upon gauranga and invites the soul into the complete state of relaxation already realized by the mind and body. Hypnotic musical strains accompany these three tracks and move the practitioner seamlessly through the sessions. Also in the trilogy: Yoga Music of the Heart and Yoga Sound™.

 

--------------------------------

Gauranga Breathing works.

 

-Naomi DeBruyn, linearReflections, August 2002

 

Rest and Relax is the third disc in this boxed set, and features Wai Lana doing a guided meditation, actually talking the listener through two different relaxation techniques-Gauranga Breathing and Yoga Nidra. I found this to be the most entrancing and enjoyable disc of the set, and if you actually do the guided exercises, you will find yourself completely relaxed. The objective is a goal that is reached in this case.

 

--------------------------------

 

We would like to happily congratulate His Holiness Bhakti Vallabha Puri Goswami, the temple president and all the devotees of ISKCON Scotland for indiscriminately distributing the rarest and the most confidential treasure in the whole of creation: the most merciful Holy Name of Lord Gauranga, to all the around 8 million people of Scotland, thus fulfilling the innermost desire of Shrila Prabhupada, Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada, Seventh Goswami Shrila Saccidananda Bhaktivinoda Thakura, all the previous Acharyas, Lord Shri Advaita Acharya and Their Supreme Lordships Shri Shri Nityananda Gauranga Themselves. We thank them for their most glorious and rare service in this universe of spreading the Holy Name of Gauranga from door to door and street to street in Scotland. We always believe in the non-sectarian and non-institutionalized spreading of the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas and the Hare Krishna Mahamantra all over the whole world. The following Vyasa Puja offering by devotees of ISKCON Scotland to our beloved Shrila Prabhupada shows their staunch faith in Gauranga Nama and their dedicated efforts to spread the Gauranga Mantra all over their country:

 

Offering of ISKCON Scotland to Shrila Prabhupada for his Vyasa Puja 2001 which shows the great dedication to the most magnanimous service of the devotees of ISKCON Scotland towards humanity of spreading the Holy Name of Gauranga, the Gaura Gopala Mantra:

 

Dear Shrila Prabhupada,

 

Please accept our respectful obeisances at your lotus feet. All glories to you, Shrila Prabhupada, all glories to you!

 

On your journey to America you prayed to your spiritual master, Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati: “By his strong desire, the holy name of Lord Gauranga will spread throughout all the countries of the Western world.” Due to the desire of your Guru Maharaja, you came to give us this holy name. Now by your strong desire you are working through your disciples to do the same. You will be pleased to know that the holy name of Gauranga is being spread far and wide here in Scotland. There has been an inundation of Gauranga’s name for the last few years through numerous towns and villages throughout Scotland, and it is expanding more and more through our Gauranga campaign of posters, stickers, and Gauranga rock prasadam distribution. Our Every Town and Village program is systematically covering the whole of Scotland. Gauranga’s name and harinama kirtanas are resounding all over. (this para is from the 1997 offering)

 

By your great compassion the holy names are now spreading all over Scotland and the north of England at such a fast and enthusing rate. Wherever we go people are calling out the holy name of Lord Gauranga upon seeing us. People approach the devotees on the streets and just to say Gauranga, smile, and go on there way. The fallen souls are very happy by this chanting. We are seeing this more and more. It is now becoming an accepted part of daily life to so many. By the fallen souls chanting Lord Gauranga's name, we can see very clearly that they are changing and are very happy by this chanting. Some young people are using the name Gauranga as a general greeting whenever they meet each other, and they shout it out loudly upon seeing each other at a distance, thus benefiting so many others in the vicinity.

 

It is all your mercy, Shrila Prabhupada. You brought Gauranga's name to the West and distributed it freely. Now the fallen souls are becoming attached to that great name by your sweet mercy. All glories to you, Shrila Prabhupada! You are the real mercy of Lord Nityananda and Shri Gauranga-sundara. You are the extended mercy rays of the benediction moon spreading throughout the world and giving spiritual light in this dark age.

 

Prabhupada is our light, nescience is darkness.

Where there is Shrila Prabhupada there is no darkness.

 

Here in Scotland we are seeing that Lord Gauranga's name is fast becoming a household word, as was predicted. This is your great gift of mercy to the suffering and fallen souls of this dark and perilous age. The people of Scotland are generally very gross, but they have a great liking for this Gauranga-nama.

 

Thank you for engaging us fallen souls as your tiny little servants in distributing this greatest of transcendental gifts. When we are fully engaged in the distribution of Gauranga-nama, there are no worries and life is very wonderful, and the fallen souls are very happy also. What else is there for us to do? We are seeing very clearly the amazing results of distributing Gauranga-nama, so with your permission and much-needed blessings we beg to continue and hope that you are pleased.

 

Please forgive us for all our offenses and stupidity. We are actually useless, but you have kindly found a use for us. All glories to you, Shrila Prabhupada! All glories to Lord Gauranga's sweet holy name, which is your great gift to the world! You are the real Gauranga dasa.

 

Begging to be your dasas eternally, we remain

 

Your insignificant servants in Scotland.

 

The people of Scotland are generally very gross, but they have a great liking for this Gauranga-nama.

 

Commentary by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

This clearly demonstrates the scriptural injunctions that Gauranga Nama which does not consider the 10 offenses is very easily accessible, most essential and effective for the offensively burdened grossly sinful souls of Kali Yuga and thus is the only remedy for their deliverance.

 

We are seeing very clearly the amazing results of distributing Gauranga-nama, so with your permission and much-needed blessings we beg to continue and hope that you are pleased.

 

Commentary by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

This is just the beginning of a new world era where we are beginning to see a tiny drop of the amazing miracles and results of chanting the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas. These most merciful offenseless Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga are predicted and destined to bring about the pure and offenseless Golden Age of 10,000 Years in this Kali Yuga. And we will see much bigger and much greater mircales from the chanting of Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas in our personal lives as well in this universe as the chanting of These Holy Names spreads far and wide.

 

Here in Scotland we are seeing that Lord Gauranga's name is fast becoming a household word, as was predicted.

 

Commentary by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

This was surely the desire of Shrila Prabhupada as he has stated again and again:

 

Shrila Prabhupada’s Letter to: Niranjana, Brooklyn, 21 May, 1973: “You mention that they have not even heard of Lord Gauranga. So that is their misfortune, and our misfortune also. _________________ in India, they could not preach Lord Gauranga’s name all over India.”

 

It is not by any stroke of sheer luck or chance that the most fortunate people of Scotland and getting a chance to hear Gauranga's Holy Name. It is because of the unlimited spiritually pious deeds they have performed in the previous lives that they have taken birth in a country where Gauranga is becoming a household word.

Gauranga Meditation Center of Sankirtana Das in Gainesville

 

The spoken word

 

There are many different words you can chant. "Mango" has a nice quality, he says. In the '60s, he used to chant "love, peace, happiness, freedom." But now Sankirtan chants what he considers the sweetest sound in the world. His thin face relaxes as he introduces it: "Gaur-Ra-Ang-Ga."

 

The word gauranga means "golden effulgence," which is the radiant glow that appears around light sources. By using this word to describe God, it becomes a spiritual mantra.

 

Sankirtan has his students breath deeply, inhale the incense wafting through the room and exhale the word, "Gauranga." He says a good gauranga session lasts about 20 to 40 minutes and should be done several times a day.

 

(2) http://www.esatclear.ie/~dialogueireland/cha1.htm

 

To demonstrate the Chaitanya School's way of meditation, Balakhilya led the audience in a number of guided meditations: Sitting still, become aware of the rhythm of one's breathing. Then on each exhalation chanting aloud the mantra: Gauranga Nitai Gaur.

 

In the group this was quite a centring experience. One forgot about the noises of the street. This, we were told, was because we were using a transcendental sound, pertaining not to the material, but to the transcendental world.

 

(3) http://www.iskcon.org.uk/scotland/

 

ISKCON Scotland:

 

"Gauranga (the Golden one) is a name of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, an incarnation of Shri Krishna who preached the glories of the holy name (Hare Krishna) throughout India 500 years ago. The sound of 'Gauranga' is extremely potent spiritually, just like the Hare Krishna mantra, and whoever hears or chants this name becomes liberated."

 

(4) http://www.mayapur.info/navadwip_dham/navadwip_index.html

 

ISKCON Mayapur:

 

"In Shri Navadvipa-dhama-mahatmya, it is described that is very easy to achieve success in the chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra and the 'Gauranga' Mantra by chanting them while residing in the most merciful Shri Navadvipa-dhama and thus actually achieve Vrindavana-dhama." (This is taken from our translation)

 

(5) New Oriental Health Oy, Janne Kontala (Jayananda Dasa prabhu), Vantaa, Helsinki

 

"I read recently your writing about Gauranga-mantra. I teach yoga. In my current course I implemented in the mediation section quiet chanting of Gauranga (quiet because according to my experience people are scared if loud chanting goes on, at least on yoga courses where they are expecting a quiet atmosphere). Now quite many have been chanting at least five minutes daily for two weeks. Some seem to like it."

Dear Gaurangapada-ji ,

 

The message of Lord Krishna can be repeated by anyone but depending on the realization of the speaker, then the hearer gets a similar benefit. It is so nice to receive your voice messages because you are an excellent devotional speaker. Your messages are so simple to understand, like Shrila Prabhupada, and your voice is so full of devotional compassion and ecstacy. Thank you for using the latest technology to deliver the Divine Nectar of Krishna Consciousness all over the world. Thank you for compassionately dedicating your life to saving the fallen conditioned souls. I consider you a real Acharya because you are so innovative in your preaching methods. Your sanga is so right on. There is absolutely no politics or offensive behavior to other devotees. It is 100% pure devotional nectar. Hearing you, I can freely cry out for Lord Gauranga and Lord Nityananda without reservation. Now my life is successful!

 

Your eternal friend and humble admirer,

 

Mahashakti dasa

--------------------------------

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! You see the reason for this is that the devotees consider the greatest miracle is the achievement of pure love for Lord Gauranga-Krishna and all other material problems as petty and temporary compared to that. That is why they do not talk about all the miracles happening on the material platform in their lives.

 

Because once you achieve pure love for the Lord, you go back to the eternal kingdom of God with a spiritual body at the end of this life and thus it will be a permanent end to all the miserable problems we have experienced life after life in this material world including birth, disease, old age, death, poverty, unemployment, family strife, etc. So the devotees normally talk about their realizations on the achievement of this permanent miracle.

 

Also many of the devotees in whose life these practical miracles are happening have no access or time to post them on the Forum.

 

Since you want to hear about them, I will try to post some of them as I receive them by email.

 

Let me start of with some:

 

Bhakta Gopal Khetan (forum id: kavitagopal) from Mumbai sold book paper worth around Rs. 1,000,000 to a person and got a draft of Rs. 800,000 or so. But the draft turned out to be fake. So he and the police searched for the paper but no success for about one week. Then he called me and sat down in his office and chanted the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas. And the police called back saying that they have found the paper he had sold and returned it back to him. He is now in USA. Maybe he can a write a detailed writeup about this and many other miracles he had in his life due to Nityananda Gauranga Mantrarajas. He was not getting a US visa and it was rejected the first time. But the second time when he chanted the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas and went, he got a 10 year visa which is so difficult to get when you apply for a visa to USA for the first time.

 

One lady in Mumbai was so much harrased and tortured by her husband for the past 15 to 20 years. The husband would literally beat her up with pots, abuse her in all ways and not allow her to chant too. Filing for divorce and getting it, is a very long legal process in India which requires lots of funds to pay the lawyers etc. The lawyers told her that the divorce will take a minimum of 10 years because the husband was not ready to sign the papers. Then she called and was given the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas and was told to pray to Them for help in this case. She started very seriously chanting and praying to the Mantrarajas for around 8 hours day and on the 9 day a miracle happened. The lawyers called her up and told her that the divorce is done even though they themselves could not believe it how it was done so soon. They called her for signing the papers and asked her the secret of this miracle. And she gave them the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas with great joy. Laughing

 

......... there are so many more which have happened and are happening, maybe I will keep on posting one daily...

 

You see the devotees depending on the Lord's mercy do not normally pray (because they are embarrased to do so) to the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas for material things thinking them as petty and undesirable and only ask for pure love of God. So the Mantrarajas give them pure love of God and not the things they did not ask for.

 

But if someone with full faith in the efficacy of the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas asks practical and material boons from the Mantrarajas, the Mantrarajas will fulfil them very quickly and over and above that purify his or her material mentality also. The amount of time which will be taken for the desires to be fulfiled by chanting the Mantrarajas is directly proportional to the amount of faith we have in the power of the Mantrarajas. Lord Gauranga Himself states that in Prema Vivarta... antaryaami naama bhagavaana, shradhaa anusaare phala karena pradhana.

 

Thus we can conclude that the fruits of our chanting will be corressponding to the extent of our faith in the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas which do not consider any other qualification or disqualification. And also what we ask for to the Mantrarajas while chanting Them.

Please apply this advice: Nityananda Nityananda……. Gauranga Gauranga ……….

 

The most merciful form of Lord Krishna is off course Chaitanya Mahaprabhu who has appeared together with Nityananda to give hope to the hopeless living entities of Kali Yuga. Although the hearts of the conditioned souls have become stone-like, due to the grave offenses against the Lord and the materialistic activities, the chanting of Nityananda and Gauranga will immediately effect the softening of the heart. In chanting the names of Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare offenses are considered. In fact it is said that one can chant for millions of lifetimes the Hare Krishna mahamantra, but due to his offenses one may not experience any love of Godhead.

 

"But if one only chants, with some slight faith, the holy names of Lord Chaitanya and Nityananda, very quickly he is cleansed of all offenses. Thus as soon as he chants the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, he feels the ecstasy of love for God." [Cc. Adi. 8.31].

 

This is so because in the chanting of the names of Nitai Gauranga there is no consideration of offenses one will very quickly come to the stage of love of God, simply by chanting Their names.

Shrila Prabhupada comments, "One should first take shelter of Gaura-Nityananda in order to reach, ultimately, Radha-Krishna. Shrila Narottama dasa Thakura sings in this connection:

gauranga balite habe pulaka sarira……………

 

In the beginning one should very regularly chant Shri Gaurasundara’s holy name and then chant the holy name of Lord Nityananda. Thus one’s heart will be cleansed of impure desires for material enjoyment. Then one can approach Vrndavana-dhama to worship Lord Krishna. Unless one is favored by Lord Chaitanya and Nityananda, there is no need to go to Vrndavana, for unless one’s mind is purified, he cannot see Vrndavana, even if he goes there." [Cc. Adi. 8.31, purport]

I am writing to express my deep felt appreciation for the special gift (http://janmashtami.gaurangapada.com) sent out on the Holy Appearance day of Shri Krishna. As I am some hours away from a Krishna temple and due to finances and commitments was not able to participate with other devotees, I cannot express in words Swami Gaurangapada's kindness and mercy. Also to receive access to http://Gaurangapada.com is a treasure beyond compare. Currently I am reading the Krishna Book by Shrila Prabhupada ,and I compare the efforts of our wonder Prabhupada with the tireless and dedicated efforts of our dear Swami Gaurangapada. From my heart I thank you so much for guiding me to the wonderful Nityananda and Gauranga Mantraraja's and deeper appreciation of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra.

 

Hoping oneday to be a worthy servant, Nava Gauranga dasa.

--------------------------------

Dear Swami Gaurangapada,

 

Please accept my deepest appreciation for your new ebook. It is exquisitely translated and shall bring great hope and enlightenment to all of mankind. You are a burning vessel of love and compassion whose life is totally dedicated to spreading the glories of Gauranga and Nityananda. In this Age of Kali-yuga, when everyone including myself is covered with the modes of nature, it is so difficult to know anything of God. We perpetually live in sin and forgetfulness of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is our only Friend and Love. Unless we take complete shelter of Krishna in His form of Lord Gauranga, what hope is there for any happiness or peace?

 

Sometimes out of causeless compassion, the Lord sends forth his eternal associates to awaken the population to the transcendental plane of existence. Such was the case with our own gurudeva, Shrila Prabhupada, who was sent to fulfill the earnest request of his spiritual master Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Goswami. He traveled the world depending fully on His dear Lord Krishna just to wake up the sleeping souls who were rotting in the modes of nature. Somehow, this poor beggar was allowed to hear the Holy Names emanate from the lips of his Gurudeva and his life has never been the same. Yet, I am insignificant and always filled with materialistic desires. Thus my life is a failure. Just as I was drowning for the last time, I heard the names of Gauranga and Nityananda emanate from your lips and felt a renewed spirit wash over my body and mind. Ecstasy filled my heart and everything my Gurudeva had taught me was again fresh. Guru is one. The pure soul who is the embodiment of Krishna's mercy utters Krishna's name and immediately awakens Krishna bhakti in the devotees heart. That is the eternal process of transferring Krishna Consciousness to others.

 

You are such an individual, whose heart is flowing with the mercy of Lord Gauranga and Lord Nityananda, where there is no room for self interest of materialistic ego, whose whole life is busy translating for Krishna and distributing Krishna on a worldwide basis, who is 100% convinced that Gauranga Krishna and His Holy Names are non-different, who knows without doubting that the best and only remedy for the society of materialistic persons is the Holy Names of Gauranga, Nityananda, then Radha and Krishna. You have no malice toward those of us who do not fully understand your simple and straightforward message because you are confident that your Lord Gauranga will convince us sometime soon. With keen spiritual vision, you can see that even to chant Hare Krishna alone is difficult for the living entities in this age, even though this is the prime benediction of the Lord. Thus, by Gauranga's mercy, He has empowered you to teach the offenseless chanting of the Nityananda Gauranga Mantrarajas, clearing the way for the living entities to easily chant the Hare Krishna mantra and realize their deepest dreams and aspirations. Unfortunately, as is common in the Age of Kali, there are many detractors who doubt your words and authority. It is ok to doubt until he who is speaking has proved himself with sincere action and sastric reference. You have done both perfectly. If you were an imposter, then your spotless character would by now have been blemished. Like a lotus sitting beautifully on the reflective pond, you are above this world of offensive behavior and sinful desire. Please go on with your sanga of mercy! Many souls owe their life to you for fearlessly distributing the only known cure for vice in the Age of Kali.

 

Jai Nityananda! Jai Gauranga!   All glories to Shrila Prabhupada! Hare Krishna! ys, Mahashakti dasa.==================

Dearest Gaurangapada Swami and Gauranga bhaktas,All glories to Shrila Prabhupada, who I'm sure is beaming with delight as he relishes the wonderful offering you have made for the pleasure of Lord Gauranga and Lord Nityananda and all their devotees worldwide. You have truly created an online tirtha second to none. Now the masses of Kali Yuga residents need only click on their mouse and keyboard to enter the Holy Dhama and get relief from sinful reactions. The vision of Bhaktivinode Thakur is being carried on by your sincere desire. There is so much quality and effort being channeled through your words, graphics, ebooks, forums, etc that one feels like he is part of a huge Hare Krishna Online festival. You have proven that it is not necessary to only have Temples of brick and mortar to spread Krishna Consciousness! The internet can reach more people then any number of Temples. Krishna IS the internet and when it is properly used in His service, He gives unlimited intelligence and inspiration. I am particularly impressed with the nice organizational quality of everything. It is all so first class, well designed and well thought out. Visitors will be so impressed that they will naturally want to become a part of your community. As the moderator of one online Vaishnava forum, I posted an article from your ebook along with directions how to obtain the entire ebook. This is a first class experience and I am proud to share your website creation with others. ys,Mahashakti dasa /  ACBSP

Dear Swami Gaurangapada,

 

Your new ebook on chanting Hare Krishna is a great contribution to Vaishnavism and the cult of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. It is so refreshing to hear that our essential time should be mainly used for chanting the Hare Krishna maha-mantra. Our spiritual master Shrila A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the foremost disciple of his beloved guru Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Maharaja, always encouraged us to constantly chant Hare Krishna and distribute his books. He was also very fond of  street sankirtan. Our gurudeva was empowered with the desire to spread Krishna Consciousness all over the world and he strongly engaged his disciples to do the same. Sometimes ISKCON devotees are unnecessarily criticized for their sometimes less then ingenuous ways of carrying on the orders of their spiritual master. We are foremost a preaching organization..

 

Somehow or other, our duty is to maintain both a very high personal sadhana and an active program of preaching to the public. Shrila Prabhupada did not encourage us to chant constantly but rather maintain a balance of both chanting and preaching. In one of his letters in the 1970's, he stated that if we cannot go out and distribute books all day or perform street sankirtan all day, then we should stay back and read Shrimad Bhagavatam all day. I do, however, very much appreciate your ebooks because they imbibe the essence of all Vedic instructions in this age of Kal, namely constant chanting of the Holy Names. It is, however, to be noted that Shrila Prabhupada wanted many Temples, to offer a place for the common person to serve both the Deity and other Vaishnavas. No doubt that to spread Krishna Consciousness is the most challenging task for any elevated devotee of the Lord. Shrila Prabhupada felt that his literatures were like time bombs when placed in homes and libraries around the world. At some point, they would be opened and read. He referred to book distribution as the big mrdanga drum.

 

It is my personal opinion that we as a Vaishnava society, an arm of the Gauranga tree, must learn to appreciate and respect other Vaishnavas who are sincerely serving the Lord. ISKCON members should not be poisoned with an attitude of exclusivism or feelings of superiority thinking that their guru is bona fide while all other gurus are bogus. A real preacher should naturally feel very proud of his own spiritual master. But the correct ontological conclusion of an advanced follower is to show ALL respects to other Vaishnavas. If he does not do so, then according to sastra, such a devotee is a kanishta or third class Vaishnava. A third class devotee should never assume any position of authority within a Vaishnava society because such persons are sure to create a materialistic atmosphere and ruin everything for others.

 

It is high time for members of ISKCON to start boiling the milk of Krishna Consciousness. Along with their preaching zeal and missionary activities, it is very necessary for it's members to chant purely and concentrate on sadhana. Their is no subsitute for pure chanting. We must demonstrate that a life of preaching goes hand in hand with  the constant chanting of the Holy Names.

 

Thank you for your firm conviction in the chanting process! Krishna's Holy Names are the only real shelter in this Age of Kali. Please go on with your wonderful and gifted work of spreading Krishna Consciousness. I hope we can continue to work together under the umbrella of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and the six Goswami's of Vrndavana.

 

ys,

I wish to thank you also for posting realisations.Just yesterday I was talking with my devotee friend in town about Nityananda prabhu and how his pastimes are so nice. Thank you for your realisations.The last few days I have increased my japa to 32-32-16. I wil try to maintain this but if I cannot I have become determined to chant a minimum of 16-16-8. By increasing chanting I have noticed my consciousness become very calm and clear. Also I have redisigned Their Lordships altar and have become very attached to their darshan.I have also become determined to increase my sadhana and am becoming convinced that Gauranga Krishna concsousness is the topmost goal for this fallen soul. Thank you so much for the inspiration you have given me and helping me also to feel a part of a Vaishnava community. Thank you for all these positive things.Thank you for increasing my determination. - Nava Gauranga dasa, Australia.

--------------------------------

Dear Swami Gaurangapada, I have derived so much inspiration from your previous mail addressed to me and now my whole family is chanting the holy names of Nityananda and Gauranga. I had been experiencing lot of problems for the past three to four years, but after taking up the holy names of Nityananda and Gauranga the problems are melting gradually and disappearing. I am totally convinced that it is through your mercy that I have opened my heart to let in the mercy of their Lordships Nityananda and Gauranga. Sometimes when I chant Nityananda's name  I start crying and tears flow down in experiencing the merciful nature of Lord Nityananda. My heart melts and I feel completely under the shelter of Lord Nityananda. - Bilvamangala Thakura dasa, India.

I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that I am very happy that you are so adamant in your desire not to be affiliated with any organization. Thank you for being so clear and straight forward about that. I agree with everything that you said. Not thinking about any specific institution, it is true that once a leader leaves, organizations do get embroiled in politics and human desire for name and fame...this can be seen in most religions. Once again, thank you for sending out this letter and I have to say my admiration and respect for you has increased quite signifigantly. - Neil, USA.

--------------------------------

Have read the message below, and I fully agree with your decison not to be connected to any kind of insitution because due to materialistic endeavours, we lose the main purpose of our work.

Dear Swami Gaurangapada, I printed out a copy of  your ebook "Eightfold Daily Pastimes of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu" awhile ago. This subject matter is very appealing to me. Thanks. - Neil, USA.

--------------------------------

 

Dear Swami, I was reading your works about Shri Gaura. Sometimes devotees think that if they meditate on Shri Gaura more than in Shri Krishna they are in low position. But they don't understand that Shri Gaura is the avatar of this age and vadanyaya Krishnaprema pradayate. Also He is the most merciful avatar and He is Radha-Krishna Himself; and He has demostrated that He is the sumun of all avatars (In sat-bhuja pastime). I am enjoying a lot this work about 100 top names of GodHead and Other works.- Mr. Debasish Acharyya, Ecuador.

--------------------------------

I am thankful for the most wonderful spiritual mails that you send out, these nectar mails act like oasis in the desert of material life, whenever I read your nectarean spiritual emails it's gives sme so much joy and happiness that I can simply cannot put it in words, or express it properly. -Keyur, India,

Thank you so much for all your efforts in spreading the names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna. I really like all the channels, its amazing to have so much spiritual nectar in one place. Your endeavors are astounding! Sincerely, Neil.

--------------------------------

In the past few days I had the wonderful grace of loaning a Chaitanya

Bhagavata adi khanda volume 2 ,with purports by Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada,from a devotee friend. Dear Swami thank you for inspiring me to come across this glorious scripture. My simple words cannot express how I felt today whilst reading this Chaitanya Bhagavata. It was so pleasing to read this scripture which you are so attached to. I realise your words and teachings about our Lords Nityananda Gauranga are the same nectar which pours forth from this scripture. - Nava Gauranga dasa, Australia.

--------------------------------

 

Swami Gaurangapada, I can tell you a thing for sure- I could understand a bit about Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu only by reading your books. Your Birth is indeed Glorious. You are so fortunate and I respect that your VISION IS IN PRECISELY THE RIGHT DIRECTION. Thank you so much Maharaj.-Sumedha dasa.

--------------------------------

 

Dear Swami Gaurangapada, Thank you for the uplifting message. I just finished my chanting for the day and was certainly blissful. This was the second day where I would do 10 rounds of Nityananda and then 40 rounds of Gauranga, then I chant the maha mantra 16 rounds at a time until I finish 64. I was doing 10 rounds each of Nityananda and Gauranga until I read in one of your articles that Nityananda said 4000 names of Gauranga was necessary to recieve his mercy. Thank you

for that information. I do take breaks to eat and listen to Shrimad Bhagavatam on MP3. Anyhow I was sitting down and chanting for my final 16 rounds about 2:30 in the afternoon. While I chant I play a  tape of Shrila Prabhupada chanting at a moderate level to help me concentrate and I have a big picture of Lord Chaitanya dancing at the front of the car in the Ratha Yatra festival with Nityananda and his other associates.

 

All were mad in ecstasy and Lord Chaitanya and Nityananda had tears in their eyes and I just zoned in on how they gave every last bit of energy and exertion to help others simply by loving krishna so much, and I became surcharged with a feeling of thankfulness and gratitude that my voice started choking up and tears just pored profusely from my eyes. Every time I would go to chant again a surge of tears would come as I looked at Lord Chaitanya and Nityananda and I wept like a little baby, this lasted for about 15 minutes. Lord Chaitanya and Nityananda gave mercy to a worthless illusion fools like myself, who truly are low and worthless and I owe them everything. I can do nothing but give everything to Krishna. It was just too much for me, thinking how much they gave for the benefit of others, as I merged into their feeling of separation from Krishna. Thank you so much for your mercy and knowledge. - Jason, USA.

 

--------------------------------

Dear Swami Gaurangapada, Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! I listened to the first six parts of the Chaitanya Bhagavata lectures last night and early this morning and relished them very much. Many thanks for your precious jewel-like gifts from Gamhira Dhama. --- Yours, Vicharu dasa.

--------------------------------

 

Dear Swami Gaurangapada, Thank You for Your beautiful audio lectures and Your website with all the services You are providing. It's so precious! I would like to do some practical service to help your preaching... Well, so I'm practicing the sweet names of Nityananda and Gauranga and I am happy that through the Lord's grace one day I could get into my hands a book of Swami Praphupada, which made me interested in the path of bhakti yoga and that another day I could find Your webpage on internet and get attracted to the chanting the Nityananda & Gauranga Holy Names and finally to become Your disciple. The way is long, I know, but I am happy that I have step on it. --- Matus from Spain.

--------------------------------

The new site looks excellent and is easier to navigate surely. The new CD of Nityananda and Gauranga is surely excellent and I hope I can purchase it. It sure is helpful for those who cannot sing in congregation every night. Thanks for all  the help and guidance. --- Jason, USA.

--------------------------------

Respected Acharya, Thanks for the regular mails I receive. They act as a distant lamp post on a dark path so that you can verify your directions. Today's was of a very high value. --- Mr. Dewoolkar, Manager.

--------------------------------

 

I am trying to realise what mercy I received from the Advaita mercy lecture and I am thinking that what I really gained from Advaita Acharya was the knowledge that he likes to be known as servant of Gauranga and not worshipped separately even though he can be considered non different and the Lord in his own right, that wasnt what he wanted, but to be known as servant of the Lord. And his request to the Lord to only desire that the Lord delivered the foolish abominable and fallen as his only desire, his only benediction when he could have asked for so many material things, he just wanted to be a servant of the Lord and for the Lord to deliver all the fallen abominable and foolish people. I like Advaita Acharya. I like Murari Gupta and I like Advaita Acharya, --- Chandrika Gauranga dasi, UK.

--------------------------------

 

Dear Swami, So, now Your site is becoming the most favourite of mine not just because of the spiritual content but also because of the abbilities and comfortability it provides. Congratulations and thank You thousands of times!  And thanks to all the people who can't get satisfied with using the knowledge they gained just for the egoistic and senseless purposes and regognize the eternal light in using it in the beautiful way of bhakti...

Remaining with humble greetings and remembrance  Matus.
