Title: Beauty of Gauranga Naam

User: Nava Gauranga dasa  Date: 2006-10-18 12:23:21


Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!

Dear Swami Gaurangapada and assembled devotees,

please accept my humble obiesances.


Please forgive me dear devotees for duplicating this entry from

To be honest it is unnatural for me to be so open publicily about my spiritual life.

Especially sharing internal realisations. There are so many obstacles to my spiritual life where I presently live, and to be so open publicily is something I am still getting used of. But it is Gurudeva's desire for us all to share on the

internet, and uplift each other. So thank you so much for this chance to share.


Yesterday was such a special day for me. I am overwhelmed by the beauty and depth of GaurangaKrishna consciousness. Desires are that my sinful heart, which is a huge obstacle to true devotion, may be completely melted by Gauranga Mahaprabhu: Beauty, Exquisite, Pure Love is He.

###Beauty of Gauranga Naam###


Shri Chaitanya Charitamrita Adi 7.11:

krishna-madhuryera eka adbhuta svabhava

apana asvadite krishna kare bhakta-bhava


Translation by Shrila Prabhupada:

The transcendental mellow of conjugal love of Krishna is so wonderful that Krishna Himself accepts the form of a devotee to relish and taste it fully.



Although Krishna is the reservoir of all pleasure, He has a special intention to taste Himself by accepting the form of a devotee. It is to be concluded that although Lord Chaitanya is present in the form of a devotee, He is Krishna Himself. Therefore Vaishnavas sing, shri-krishna-chaitanya radha-krishna nahe anya: “Radha and Krishna combined together are Shri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.” And as Shri Svarupa Damodara Gosvami has said, chaitanyakhyam prakatam adhuna tad-dvayam caikyam aptam: Radha and Krishna assumed oneness in the form of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.


I am hesitant to post my query on the internet forum because of the personal nature and special intimacy of Radha and Krishna. I wish not to make offense.

And also that my realisations may not be correct tattva.


I feel I have realised to some degree the deep beauty of the name of ‘Gauranga’. Of the deep intimate union of Radha and Krishna. In a way so consummate. A love so deep that One wishes to know the other fully and deeply. A deep reciprocation of love divine. This name of ‘Gauranga’ is not some simple access or stepping stone, but is complete consummation. A love so profound I am hesitant to discuss.


‘And as Shri Svarupa Damodara Gosvami has said, chaitanyakhyam prakatam adhuna tad-dvayam caikyam aptam: Radha and Krishna assumed oneness in the form of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.’


How intimate a service is such of these divine servitors such as Shri Svarupa Damodara Goswami and Shri Ramananda Raya. To increase Mahaprabhu’s divine sentiments and prema.


What does it mean to chant the name of Gauranga? What does it mean to serve Mahaprabhu? I fall at these divine servitors Lotus Feet. I realised today…it is surely not about me. Everything must be for Krishna’s pleasure.


Dear Gurudeva! You have given the highest nectar so freely! The name of Gauranga is the highest pinnacle, I cannot describe what I glimpsed for a split second today.


How is it that the name of Gauranga does not consider offences? In such intimate love there is no consideration of offence! But how is it that this name has been given to the most fallen? Even such as I!


Material possesions are to be relinqished. Krishna wants everything. Yesterday a great atheist said I was a waste of space. Materially I am a great fool. No one sees fully and clearly, just outer coverings nothing else. We cannot see clearly. It is most difficult. Please take away this desire for name and fame, for wanting to be noticed. So sinful am I. But dear Gurudeva, I want Krishna more than anything.

Today I realised what is my position. Servant of the servant of the servant. It can be nothing else.


Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:


Dear Nava Gauranga dasa, This is certainly a wonderful realization which you have penned down today. The depth of Lord Gauranga’s Confidential Form and Manifestation is infinite and to realize or understand even a tiny particle of it means to be inundated in the limitless nectarean ocean of love. Please don’t hesitate to share with us such realizations due to your humble nature.
