Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krsna
All glories to Swami Gaurangapada! All glories to Shrila Prabhupada!
If we take shelter of Lord Chaitanya's Holy Name, chaitanya-namasrita, immediately unlimited offenses will be destroyed, including various types of Naam aparadha. That is unique characteristic of Gaura Naam and Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura is emphasing this truth in the Gauranga-lila-smarana-mangala stotram Verse 97:
"With great devotion, I bow before Lord Gaurachandra, who for they who take constant shelter of His most merciful name of Gauranga, immediately destroys all the various kinds of offenses in the chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, and in this way awards His topmost transcendental devotional service to the living entities."
