Chat transcript : why Nityananda broke the Danda from Mahaprabhu -- By Swami Gaurangapada
SG: So how is the Gauranga consciousness of everyone?
SG: devotee1 prabhu, your neem Deities of Their Lordships Shri Shri Nityananda Gauranga have come from Navadvipa.
devotee1: OH really???
SG: and They are very beautiful
SG: with very well-formed lotus hands and feet and very deep mood
SG: Pure Neem wood which has been seasoned for 10 years
devotee1: That is very special
devotee1: What are Their faces like? Beautiful lotus eyes? Smiling?
SG: Yes, lotus eyes are very beautiful but I have to say that They are in a very sober and deep and grave mood
SG: Constantly thinking about the deliverance of all the living entities. And we have to relieve Their anxiety by preaching Their Holy Names to one and all, only then we become qualified to be really called as their servants.
SG: Lord Gauranga was always serious in Puri Dhama relishing His own love
SG: I was hearing Shri Chaitanya Charitamrita today and had tears in my eyes when Jagadananada Pandita picked up a pot to beat Sanatana Goswami
SG: when Sanatana Goswami wore a cloth on his head from another sannyasi
SG: Jagadananda thought it is cloth of Lord Gauranga but when he found out it was someone else's cloth, he became very angry
SG: that was his great love for Lord Gauranga
SG: We should not only chant the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas and the Hare Krishna Mahamantra but spread Them to one and all
SG: This is the greatest benefit to the soul
SG: And there is no expenditure and expense
SG: to chant and spread the Holy Names
SG: Yes real Vaishnava means his or her feet cannot stick to the ground when there is kirtana of the Holy Names
SG: NITYAANANDA! GAURAANGA!
SG: I always feel my sannyasa danda is a great burden while dancing in kirtana
SG: So devotee2, first you come upto the level of chanting 10 rounds each of the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas and chant 1 round of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra
SG: then you increase from 1 round onwards to a minimum of 16 rounds and chant three times the Pancha Tattva Mantra before each round of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra.
devotee3: why Nityananda broke the Danda from Mahaprabhu??? and why Nityananda lied to Him didn't told him he broke it?
devotee3: and why was broken in 3 places???
SG: so (1) Lord Nityananda thought that Lord Krishna is giving us pain this incarnation of Lord Gauranga by carrying a sannyasa danda instead of His flute. So instead of the supreme enjoyer He has become the greatest renunciant
SG: (2) Lord Nityananda thought that when the Lord Himself has taken sannyasa but still He cannot be classified in the varnashrama system
SG: Lord Gauranga is always transcendental to even the sannyasa order, so He broke the rod
SG: Lord Nityananda broke it in three places because He wanted to complain to Lord Gauranga that His incarnation was to spread pure Vaishnava Dharma and demolish the Mayavada philosophy of oneness with God. So He should have accepted the Tridanda (three rods) sannyasa of a Vaishnava sannyasi not the one rod (Ekadanda) of Mayavada sannyasa which He had accepted from Keshava Bharati.
Question: The devotee was asking me the meaning of Chaitanya
SG: Chaitanya means Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name who relieve the conditioned souls from the bondage of dead unconscious dull matter by awakening the pure spiritual consciousness of the soul's eternal relation with Himsef.
devotee4: devotee2: what is better nitai goranga or hare krischna
SG: Nityananda Gauranga and Hare Krishna on the pure spiritual platform both are same but for offensive conditioned souls NG is more beneficial and the only means to enter into Hare Krishna
SG: Ok about Barshana, I am not qualified Puri Gauranga but you can read Ananda Vrindavana Champu to understand the most exquisite Purva Raga attachment which Radharani felt for Lord Krishna
devotee5: Very few souls are aware of this absolute fact
devotee5: Through you only we came to know about this fact that without Nityananda and Gauranga's Name, one can achieve Krishna only after a very prolonged period of time.
SG: Jaya devotee5 prabhu, thank you for understanding this secret of all secrets
SG: Purva Raga in Barshana
SG: there is a most wonderful palace of Radharani where you can feel Her presence so intensely
devotee6: Gaurangapada why is it that other institutions are not preaching this very much. Do you think it will just be a matter of time? But some are preaching!
SG: Gauranga's Name will be spread all over the world not only by one institution but by thousands and millions.
SG: all the questions are dissolved and answered by vibrating the Holy Names with our tongue
SG: we have to develop a higher taste called Gauranga Rasa, Seventh Goswami Shrila Saccidananda Bhaktivinoda Thakura states: kali pavana gaura raso ho rasah: The only eternal and purely relishable mellow in Kali Yuga is Gauranga Rasa.
SG: then the material taste Jada Rasa will go
SG: Without reading the pastimes of Gauranga, it is very difficult to remain established in chanting
SG: Our spiritual life remains weak if we do not read daiy even though we may eat lots of pizzas and ice cream
SG: and our remembrance of the Lord is not there while chanting if we do not read or hear His pastimes daily
SG: our whole day is lost in the comtemplation of Maya
SG because we have time to read only newspapers
SG: Crowwwwwwww Literature
SG: Kaw Kaw Kaw
SG: If we want to become like swams, we have to read or hear daily Lord Gauranga's Name, glories and pastimes
SG: And daily means EVERY DAY not once in a week
devotee6: I think i will make wallpaper with this reminder and put on computer
SG: If one does not read or hears daily then one loses one's sense of spiritual discrimination of what is right and wrong.
