Title: Whoever you are - just chant Gauranga! User: Igor Date: 2006-07-09 11:33:16
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! All Glories to Swami Gaurangapada! All glories to Shrilla Prabhupada! All glories to Shrilla Bhaktisiddhantha Sarasvati Thakura! All glories to Shrilla Bhaktivinoda Thakura! All glories to Guru-Parampara! Nitai-Gaura Premanande!
This divine Nityananda Gauranga Naam Yoga is highest process available to all persons of this world, regardless their social, economical, national or any other status or position. Sublime chanting of Nityananda and Gauranga Mantraraja automatically transform sadhaka on the highest devotional level, regardless his varna or asrama or any other external, bodily consideration, because this magnanimous practice of chanting Nityananda Gauranga and Hare Krishna is transcendental activity, Yoga of the soul. That is unique position of Naam Yoga and Shrilla Narotamma das Thakura is singing:
grhe ba vanete thake, ha gauranga bole dake,
narottama mage tara sanga.
"It is not so important whether one resides in the house or in the forest, but if he is feelingly chanting the Gauranga Mantraraja, then I (Narottama) want his constant association."
Shrilla Narrotama dasa Thakura, our great acharya is telling us It is not important whether you resides in house or in the forest, whenever you are, it doesnt matter. You may be grhastha or vanaprastha or sanyasi. Student, housewife, businessmen, male, female, child, poor or rich, beggar or king. Whatever. That position is not qualification or disqualification by itself. No. Real qualification is ha gauranga bole dake, if you feelingly chant Gauranga, Gauranga, Gauranga, then you are automatically becoming so advanced that evan great acharya like Narrottama dasa Thakura want your constant association.
Persons who are not enagage in this chanting are bevildered with that How is it possible that such great person like Narrotama wants constant association of person who just sing Gauranga? That is most confusing? What about so many austere elaborate practices and vedic injunctions? He does not want association of jnanis, karmis, great mystical yogis! No! He wants to associate with person who constantly sings? How that can be true?
But it is true! If person chant Gauranga we must understand that he or she had automatically fulfilled all vedic sacrifices, all mystical processes, gave all imaginable charity and learn all elaborate knowledge, because he or she is personally associating with Supreme Lord Gauranga, Who is non-different from His Name. Such person immediately transfers all material positions likevarna or asrama and attain pure devotional service. That is unique position of chanting Nityananda and Gauranga Naam. There are no considerations about time, place and circumstances. In all other practices there are so many considerations about right moment, right process, paraphernalia, proper persons and many other arrangements. But in this highest process of chanting Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas such considerations or requirements do not exist. It is greatest and in the same moment most simple process. Krishna is saying in Bhagavad-Gita that this process is king of all knowledge raja-vidya, and it is raja-guhyam or most confidentional knowledge. Secret of all secrets of past, present and future. It is so simple and so confidentional at the same time.
Therefore, Narrotama dasa Thakura is teaching us we should aspire, desire to associate with such persons, to hear and speak about Nityananda and Gauranga, to serve and learn from such persons. Here, under merciful guidance and protection of His Holiness Tridandi Swami Shrila Bhaktiratna Sadhu Maharaja Gaurangapada we have this rare, most brilliant opportunity to associate, hear, learn, chant about Nityananda and Gauranga and on such way make this human form of life great success. Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!
