Title: Bhakta Daniel becomes Damodara Svarupa dasa

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-05-13 15:32:11

 

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! I am very happy to announce that our dear Bhakta Daniel from Belgium has accepted Harinama Diksha on the stage of chanting 16-16-16 rounds of the Nityananda Gauranga Mantrarajas and Hare Krishna Mahamantra and his new initiated spiritual name given by me is Damodara Svarupa dasa.

 

He has been very sincerely and steadily practicing chanting for the past two years under our guidance. He had got attracted by hearing our Shri Chaitanya Bhagavata audio lectures after which he dedicated himself to the study Chaitanya Bhagavata and Hari Naam Chintamani. He would never ask for Harinama Diksha thinking himself unqualified to do so. But by the causeless mercy of Lord Nrisinghadeva and Lords Nityananda Gauranga, he has received the Hare Krishna Mahamantra now. Damodara Svarupa dasa ki jaya!

 

In the Navadvipa Puri Yatra, two matajis also accepted Harinama Diksha at Shrila Jagannatha dasa Babaji's samadhi temple in Koladvipa. They had accepted Nityananda Gauranga Mantra Diksha two years back. They both are sincere devotees and their new spiritual names are Radha-priya devi dasi and Kamala Manjari devi dasi.

 

I am constantly praying that all my disciples and devotees accepting guidance from me attain Gauranga prema very quickly by the mercy of Lord Nityananda and then they come and share a drop of that prema with me. Thankyou for allowing me to become a servant of the devotees of Lords Nityananda Gauranga. This is my eternal resting place.

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Swami Gaurangapada!

Jaya Shrila Prabhupada, Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta, Shrila Bhaktivinoda,

Shri Shri Nitai-Gaura Bhakta Vrinda and Shri Shri Radha Krishna

Bhakta Vrinda! Jaya Jagannatha!

 

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to our beloved Guru Maharaja and the Acharyas of our Guru Parampara!

 

nama om gaurangapadaya nitai-presthaya bhutale;

shrimate bhaktiratna sadhu iti namine.

 

gauranga-nama-lila-bhakta-dhama pracharine;

nityananda-gauranga-nama-sahitya vitarine.

 

"By the mercy of the spiritual master one receives the benediction of Krishna. Without the grace of the spiritual master one cannot make any advancement. Therefore I should always remember and praise the spiritual master. At least three times a day I should offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of my spiritual master."

 

Today is a very auspicious and emotional day, indeed!  O, how fortunate a soul I am, when You mercifully imparted the sacred matrarajas into my right ear. I can't thank You enough for accepting such a fallen soul as myself as Your disciple.

 

Now that I've tasted this tiniest particle of eternal Mercy and by Your sweet and caring help, I can, one day, become liberated from the strong grip of this material world, and will finally be able to cross over the ocean of nescience.

 

O Lord Nityananda, O sweet Lord Chaitanya, I humbly pray at Your Lotus feet that I can be and remain a true and sincere devotee, serving my beloved Guru Maharaja and all the Vaishnavas. O sweet Lords, please be so kind to grant that I may remain submerged in the nectar of the Holy Names forever.

 

Yours in the service of the Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna,

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Damodara Svarupa dasa, please keep up this wonderful mood of humility and surrender and very soon you will attain the fruit of prema bhakti by the causeless mercy of Lords Nityananda Gauranga. The humble frame of consciousness is the only quality which makes our chanting offerable to the Lord.

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Shrila Prabhupada! Many thanks dear Mridani dd for blessing the devotees. They are fortunate to get your good wishes and prayers. Also Thakura Nitai dasi mataji accepted Harinama Diksha at the most holy place of Shrivasa Angan. She is also sincere and inspite of her age and health (back) problems, she is determined to chant and practice bhakti for the rest of her life.
