Title: 14 smritis - Hari-nama-cintamani

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-07-10 19:01:54


Thakura Haridasa in Hari-nama-cintamani:


jiva nija cid-vyapara, krishna-nama ara;

ara saba prapancika jagat samsara.


“In this whole universe there are only two meaningful truths: the soul and the Hare Krishna maha-mantra: everything else is illusion.”


Purport by Swami Gaurangapada:


Thus the spiritual soul has to take full shelter of the fully spiritual Hare Krishna maha-mantra to extricate himself permanently from this mundane and illusory existence in the form of this material body and the material world. There is no recourse other than this. All the study of the Vedic literatures and association and hearing from saintly persons should ultimately culminate in the firm determination and resolution to take continuous shelter of chanting the Hare Krishna maha-mantra.
