Nityanada Gauranga Hare Krishna Jaya Shrila Prabhupada Jaya Gaurangapada Jaya Gaura Bhakta vrinda.


Dear Swami Gaurangapada ,please accept my humble obiesances.


Could you please share a little on the relationship between Nityananda/Balarama and Shaktyavesa avatars(empowered incarnation).

I have read on discourse in Chaitanya Caritamrita in relation to Balaram that Prthu Maharaja and the Four Kumaras are empowered incarnations. I think I also read somewehere that Shrila Prabhupada is an empowered incarnation. I also have read in Prabhupada Lilamrita of Satsvarupa dasa Goswami that Prabhupada was qouted as saying that Jesus Christ is also a Shaktyavesa avatar(empowred incarnation).

Could you comment on their relation to Nityananda/Balarama?Also if Shaktyavesa avatars are jiva souls and if so what kind of jiva souls they are?


Also dear Swami I have been enjoying the website and have slowly been reading Madhurya Kadambini ,a truly wonderful book. Thankyou for all your efforts.

                     desiringto be a humble servant....Nava Gauranga dasa.
