Title: 004 Shrila Narottamma Dasa Thakura reccomends repeatedly to chant the Gauranga mantra

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-06-13 06:00:24

 

Shrila Narottama dasa Thakura has explicity glorified the chanting of the Gauranga Mantraraja in his various songs:

 

je gaurangera nama loy, tara hoy premodoy,

tare mui jai bolihari.

 

"One who chants the Holy Name of 'Gauranga' instantly awakens his or her dormant pure love for Lord Krishna. I (Narottama) worship such a person and surrender to him."

 

grhe ba vanete thake, ‘ha gauranga’ bole dake, narottama mage tara sanga.

 

"It is not so important whether one resides in the house or in the forest, but if he is feelingly chanting the Gauranga Mantraraja, then I (Narottama) want his constant association."

 

gauranga balite habe pulaka sarira;

hari hari balite nayane ba'be nira.

 

"In the beginning, when by chanting the Gauranga Mantraraja, my body will feel waves of ecstasy, only then will I be able to shed tears while chanting the names of Lord Hari in the form of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra."
