Title: 015 Days or Millennia?
User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-06-24 05:22:49
Q. Should we chose days or milennia to get delivered from our sins and offenses?
A. by Swami Gaurangapada
In Shri Navadvipa-dhama-mahatmya, Chp 10, the personified holy place
Pushkara instructs the brahmana in Navadvipa:
(A) "A sinful or offensive person will not acquire attraction for the
Hare Krishna maha-mantra or Lord Krishna's devotional service even if
he chants the maha-mantra and worships Lord Krishna **FOR MILLIONS
AND MILLIONS OF YEARS**."
(B) "But if he worships Gauranga and regularly chants the name
of 'Gauranga', then his sinful and crooked mentality will immediately
leave him and **IN A VERY FEW DAYS** he will achieve Lord Radha-Krishna
(C) "He or she will then instantly achieve his or her eternally
perfect spiritual body and thus the shelter of the sakhis or gopies
in Vrndavana. Then one will begin one's direct service to Shri Radha-
Krishna in one's own transcendental grove of Vrndavana in one's
constitutional position. All this is achieved simply by the chanting
the name of Lord Gauranga."
