IN THE CHANTING OF THE NITYANANDA & GAURANGA MANTRARAJAS THERE ARE NO OFFENSES. SIMPLY BY CHANTING THEM LOVE OF GOD COMES & TEARS OF BLISS FLOW FROM OUR EYES

 

Shri Chaitanya Charitamrita Adi 8.31:

 

chaitanya-nityanande nahi esaba vicara,

nama laite prema dena, vahe asrudhara

 

"But if one only chants, with some slight faith, the holy names of Gauranga and Nityananda, very quickly he is cleansed of all offenses. Since in the chanting of the names of Nityananda and Gauranga there is no consideration of offenses, one will very quickly come to the stage of love of God, simply by chanting Their names and tears of pure love for Krishna will flow from the eyes."

 

 

ANUBHASHYA PURPORT BY SHRILA BHAKTISIDDHANTA SARASVATI THAKURA PRABHUPADA:

 

Bengali: krishna-nama aparadhera vicara karena, gaura-nityanandera name aparadhera vicara nai. aparadhi krishna-nama grahana karilei kakhanei nama-phala (krishna-prema) labha karena na. aparadhi thaka-kaleu gaura-nityanandera nama grahanakari nama karite karite aparadha mocanante nama-phala labha karena. ihara vicara o siddhanta ei je-gaura-nityanandera nikata krishna-vimukha sadhaka krishna unmukha haibara janya gamana karena. ara sadhanasiddha, anarthamukta krishnanmukera uccarya krishna-nama anarthayukta avasthaya kakhanei phala (krishna-prema)pradana kare na. gaura-nityananda anarthayukta jivera sevya-vastu haoyaya tahadera seva jivera krishnaseva apeksa adhiktara prayojaniya. sadhaka siksara apraptite siddhabhimane krishna-namera seva karite udyata haile tahara anarthaei asiya upasthita haya; kintu nitai-gaurera bhajane siddhabhimanera chalana na rakhiya anarthayukta avasthayeo jagadguru siksaka dvayera nikata upasthita haile tahara tahadigake anarthamukta karaiya tanhadigera svayam-rupa o svayam-prakasa svarupa uplabdhi karana. tahatei jivera svarupa-jnanera udaya haya.

 

Translation: "The Hare Krishna Mahamantra considers the offenses whereas the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga don't consider offenses. An offensive chanter will never achieve the fruit of chanting (pure love for Krishna) simply by chanting the Hare Krishna Mahamantra."

(THE SECRET OF ALL SECRETS)

 

(Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta continues): "THEREORE TILL THE TIME HE IS COMMITTING OFFENSES, HE SHOULD REGULARLY CHANT THE NAMES OF Nityananda and Gauranga WHICH ARE THE GRAHANAKARI-NAMA (MOST IMPORTANT NAMES TO BE ACCEPTED AND CHANTED) FOR THE SADHAKA IN THE ANARTHA-YUKTA STAGE. DUE TO THE *REPEATED CHANTING (KARITE KARITE) OF THE NAMES OF Nityananda and Gauranga, ALL THE OFFENSES WILL BE DESTROYED AND HE WILL VERY QUICKLY ACHIEVE THE FRUIT OF THE CHANTING, PURE LOVE OF KRSNA." 

 

********************

 

(Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada continues) "The philosophical principle behind these statements is as follows - The aspirant who is averse to Lord Krishna approaches Lords Nityananda and Gauranga to become attracted to Lord Krishna. The Hare Krishna Mahamantra can only be uttered purely by the sadhaka who is on the perfected stage (sadhana-siddha) and who is free from all anarthas (unwanted things in the heart). If sadhakas full of offenses chant only the Mahamantra, the Mahamantra will never give them love for Krishna.

 

"Thus Lords Nityananda and Gauranga and Their Holy Names are the most worshipable Lords for the souls who are full of offenses. That is why Their service and the service of Their Names, Abode and Pastimes is more appropriate and beneficial for these unfortunate souls than even the service of Lord Krishna. If the sadhaka without hearing proper instructions, proudly thinks himself to be on the perfected stage and tries to render direct service to the Hare Krishna Mahamantra by chanting it without regularly chanting the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga, then the ten offenses will surely come and bar his progress. On the other hand, if the sadhaka who is full of offenses, gives up his sense of false pride of thinking himself on the perfected stage, and thus approaches the Names of the two Jagadgurus Lords Nityananda and Gauranga, worships Them and accepts Their instructions, Their Pastimes and Their devotees, They will quickly deliver him from all offenses and reward him with the realization of Their own forms (svarupas) of Svayam-Rupa (Lord Gauranga) and Svayam-Prakasa (Lord Nityananda). Then the soul realizes one own constitutional position in relation with the two Lords and thus achieves the supreme perfection."

 

Bengali: krishna-nama o gaura-nama,-ubhayei namira sahita abhinna. krsnke gaura apeksa laghu va sankirna baliya janile, uhake avidyara karya baliya janite haibe. prakrtapakse jivera prayojana-vicare shri gaura-nityanandera nama grahanera upayogita adhiktara. shri gaura-nityananda udara evam audaryera abhyantare madhura. krsnera udarta-kevala mukta, siddha ashritajana ganera upara; gaura-nityanandera audarya-srote anarthayukta aparadhi jiva bhogamaya aparadhera haste haite mukta haiya gaura-krsnera pada-padma labha karena.

 

English translation (Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada continues): "The name of Krishna and Gauranga-both are non-different than the named Lord. Those who think that Krishna is any way inferior or limited than Gauranga are in gross ignorance."

 

********************

 

(PRAYOJANA-VICARE - MORE USEFUL)

 

(Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada continues): "BUT IN PRACTICAL (PRAYOJANA) CONSIDERATIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE BENEFIT AWARDED TO THE CONDITIONED SOULS, THE CHANTING OF Nityananda and Gauranga'S NAME IS **MORE USEFUL AND HELPFUL** FOR EVERY LIVING ENTITY. THE MERCY OF LORD KRISHNA'S NAME IS GENERALLY ONLY UPON THE LIBERATED OR PERFECTED SOULS WHO ARE FULLY SURRENDERED TO HIM. BUT THE MAGNANIMITY AND MERCY OF LORD GAURANGA-NITYANANDA'S NAMES IS ESPECIALLY FOR THE SOULS WHO ARE OFFENDERS AND FULL OF ANARTHAS AND DESIRES FOR MATERIAL SENSE GRATIFICATION." 

 

********************

 

(Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada continues)

"The chanting of Lord Nityananda and Gauranga's names and Their worship very quickly delivers the soul from all the offenses and thus the soul achieves shelter at the lotus feet of Lord Gauranga-Krishna."

 

In the Amrita Pravaha Bhashya to the introduction of Chaitanya-Charitamrita (Cc) Adi-lila Chapter 8, Shrila Bhaktivinoda writes:

 

ihAte bujhite haibe ye, nAmAparAdhIra sAttvika vikArAdi kevala chalamAtra | yini akapaTe chaitanya-nityAnandera nAma laIyA Ananda prakAza karena, prabhudvaya tAGhAra hRdayake sAkSAt niraparAdha karena |

 

"We should factually understand that the ecsatic symptoms manifested by an offensive chanter of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra is simply a show or cheating. The Two Lords Nityananda and Gauranga make the heart of only that person pure and free of offenses who chant the Names of Nityananda and Gauranga and manifest great joy in doing it."

 

WHY DO THE COMMON PEOPLE NOT GET KRISHNA-PREMA EVEN THOUGH THE GLORIES OF KRSNA-NAMA-DHAMA ARE DESCRIBED IN ALL THE SCRIPTURES? THIS IS THE SECRET OF ALL SECRETS WHICH THE BEWILDERED SOULS NEVER THINK ABOUT. HOW TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM?

 

(A)ara eka gudha katha suna sarva jana;

kalijive yogya vastu gaura-lila-dhana

 

"Please hear a most confidential secret. The most suitable thing for the conditioned souls in Kali-yuga in the treasure of Gauranga's Name and Pastimes."

 

(B) krishnanama krishnadhama mahatmya apara;

sastrera dvaraya jane sakala samsara

 

"The unlimited glories of Krishna's Name (Mahamantra) and Krishna's Abode (Shri Vrndavana) are known to the whole world through the revealed scriptures."

 

(C) tabu krishna-prema sadharane nahi paya;

ihara karana kiba cintaha hiyaya.

 

"Even then pure love for Krishna is not attained by the common man. Please deeply meditate on the reason for this fact."

 

(D) ihate achaye ta eka gudha-tattva sara;

maya-mugdha jiva taha na kare vicara.

 

"The reason for this is the greatest secret of all secrets. The souls bewildered by illusion (maya) do not think about this reason."

 

(E) bahu janma krishna bhaji prema nahi haya;

aparadha punja tara achaye niscaya.

 

"Even after worshipping Krishna for many lives, one may not achieve pure love for Krishna. The reason is that there is a great mountain of offenses is one's heart, without a doubt."

 

(F) aparadha sunya haya laya krishna-nama;

tabe jiva krishna premalabhe avirama

 

"Only when a living entity chants the Mahamantra without any offenses, he or she achieves incessant pure love for Krishna."

 

(G) shri chaitanya avatara bada vilaksana;

aparadha-sattve jiva labhe prema-dhana.

 

"But the incarnation of Lord Shri Gauranga is very powerful and munificent. By His mercy, a living entity can get pure love of Krishna even if he or she is not free from the offenses."

 

(H) nitai-chaitanya bali yei jiva dake;

suvimala krishna-prema anvesaye take.

 

"If one regularly chants the names of Nityananda and Gauranga, the supreme Krishna-prema (pure love of Krishna) comes searching after (seeking out for) such a person."

 

(I) aparadha badha tara kichu nahi kare;

nirmala krishna-preme tara ankhi jhare.

 

"The offenses (which may be present in one's heart) don't create any obstacles in path of achieving this love and tears start flowing from his or her eyes in pure ecstatic love."

 

(J) svalpa kale aparadha apani palaya;

hrdaya sodhita haya prema bade taya.

 

"In a very short, the offenses themselves fmcg and the heart becomes completely purified and thus the love furthur increases."

 

All Glories to the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas and the Hare Krishna Mahamantra!
