Dear Swami Gaurangapada,
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Please, Gurudeva, accept my humble obeisances and devotions.
I have been a lost soul, lost in confusion and incomprehension. It has been through your teaching and powerful work, your Love for Their Lordships and love of devotees, your care and prayer; it has been through these that there is an increase in my desire for living with more devotion and to learn more about the Truths you teach. Yes, you are, indeed, merciful, just as Lord Chaitanya is and wants us to become.
I am not so fluent in expressing my inner thoughts, and I ask that you kindly forgive that.
I have chanted the Hare Krishna Mantra in the past, after becoming acquainted with Vaishnava teachings. Certainly there was some progress made with that; however, now that I am chanting Nityananda and Gauranga along with it, I find that there is more serious desire to chant more, to worship more, and to pray more. The more one chants rounds as you teach, the more the desire is to be more surrounded in the Love of The Lord by chanting. It is awesome!
My online connection is slow but with having downloaded the Vanibase, I can read some each day with no waiting time for the Internet. I am grateful to you for that blessing.
My nephew is living with me and a while back he became interested in Bhakti Yoga. Now he hears me chanting and doing kirtan and he joins in with the Nityananda! Gauranga! as well. I print some of your writings now and then and he will read, and then we discuss it. Having someone here to discuss with is very helpful in motivation to read and chant more. When we have a question, we usually can find answers in your writings.
Thank you, so very much for all you are and all you do. I am profoundly grateful.
My obeisances to you,
You抮e unworthy servant,
Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! My dear Ronald, Your words are very touching to the heart. I feel myself fortunate to be able to render some service to a sincere devotee like your goodself. Please always engage me in your service.
Just the muttering of a child is more dear to the father than the praises in the office, even broken words spoken by a devotee are more dear to the Lord then the aphorisms of the Vedas.
Yes, Nityananda Gauranga Naam increase our seriousness to do Bhakti and fill our soul with the highest love of the spiritual world.
Thankyou. I am always working on improving the VaniBase.
My blessings and best-wishes for your nephew. I am so happy that both of you can give association to each other. It is so rare to find the right devotee association nowadays in Kali Yuga.
I am also grateful to you for accepting the mercy of Nityananda Gauranga Naam and your valuable association.
