Please apply this advice: Nityananda Nityananda……. Gauranga Gauranga ……….


The most merciful form of Lord Krishna is off course Chaitanya Mahaprabhu who has appeared together with Nityananda to give hope to the hopeless living entities of Kali Yuga. Although the hearts of the conditioned souls have become stone-like, due to the grave offenses against the Lord and the materialistic activities, the chanting of Nityananda and Gauranga will immediately effect the softening of the heart. In chanting the names of Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare offenses are considered. In fact it is said that one can chant for millions of lifetimes the Hare Krishna mahamantra, but due to his offenses one may not experience any love of Godhead.


"But if one only chants, with some slight faith, the holy names of Lord Chaitanya and Nityananda, very quickly he is cleansed of all offenses. Thus as soon as he chants the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, he feels the ecstasy of love for God." .


This is so because in the chanting of the names of Nitai Gauranga there is no consideration of offenses one will very quickly come to the stage of love of God, simply by chanting Their names.

Shrila Prabhupada comments, "One should first take shelter of Gaura-Nityananda in order to reach, ultimately, Radha-Krishna. Shrila Narottama dasa Thakura sings in this connection:

gauranga balite habe pulaka sarira……………


In the beginning one should very regularly chant Shri Gaurasundara’s holy name and then chant the holy name of Lord Nityananda. Thus one’s heart will be cleansed of impure desires for material enjoyment. Then one can approach Vrndavana-dhama to worship Lord Krishna. Unless one is favored by Lord Chaitanya and Nityananda, there is no need to go to Vrndavana, for unless one’s mind is purified, he cannot see Vrndavana, even if he goes there."
