Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!
All Glories to Swami Gaurangapada!
All Glories to the Guru Parampara!
All Glories to all the Vaishnava Devotees!
I found out that my friend got a new job in Los Angeles and I am going to move there with him. It will be a big change, but it will also be an adventure.
I'm sure there will be more opportunities to associate with devotees. LA actually has two temples. I look forward to going to both of them.
I've still been managing to continue to chant 16 rounds of Nityandanda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna each day. I am so grateful to the Grace of Sri Guru who has inspired me to try this out.
Sanatana Dharma is so rich and vast, I am thankful that I have been able to come into contact with the absolute most sublime essence of it. To be able to learn about the wonderful teachings of the Gaudiya Archayas is such an amazing opportunity, but to be able to come into contact with Swami Gaurangapada who teaches the most perfect essecence of the Archaryas is such an amazingly rare opportunity.
I keep coming back here because no other spiritual path that I've encountered promises what the Gaudya path promises. It promises that one can enter into one's eternal relationship with the personal Divine Being. Other spiritual paths talk about having a personal relationship with God, but this tradition goes into specifics about what that relationship is. And it shows the most pure and loving and sweet manifestation of Divine Love.
When I think about how fortunate I am to have come into contact with Swami Gaurangapada, I am struck with wonder and amazement. There must be some wonderful karmic reasons. Swami Gaurangapada teaches the wonderful secret that the only way to truely enter into a relationship with Radha Krishna is to enter into relationship with Nityanada Gauranga. I always felt deep attraction to Gaura Nitai and when I saw that Swami Gaurangapada focused on devotion to them as well as Hare Krishna, I immediately wanted to investigate.
The deeper I study, the more I realize that website is a pure reflection of Divine Navadwip on earth. No other place that I have been able to find proclaims things with such clarity and truth.
Thank you again and again to Swami Gaurangapada! I really feel unworthy to be your disciple, but you so kindly accept me back again and again.
