Dearest Swami Gaurangapada and Dearest Devotees, please accept my respectful obeisances, I recently made one of my videos as 'Dr Tommy Gouranga' and invited the viewers to try chanting Nityananda Gauranga every day and let me know what were their experiences, today I received an inspiring comment from one subscriber "Andrewlife" who is like most of my audience "non devotees" or "not yet devotees". It filled me with great enthusiasm to read this and I wanted to share it with all of you.
"I tried meditating on the mantra you suggested and I loved it! I found it somehow to be a very 'entertaining' mantra. It feels like Nityananda builds up energy and Gauranga releases energy. Alternating between the two is so satisfying. I found the overall effect to be very energizing and and simultaneously relaxing. I'm glad I found this mantra. Thank you".
Nitai Gauranga are so merciful!!!

@ Nava: You are right. In the Adi Purana, Lord Krishna instructs Arjuna: nama-yuktan janan drstva snigdho bhavati yo narah; sa yati paramam sthanam vishnuna sah modate: "Anyone who simply becomes affectionally pleased (favorable) by seeing a sincere devotee devotedly chanting the Holy Names, certainly attains the eternal abode of Lord Gauranga Krishna."
Daaso'smi, Swami Gaurangapada.

@ Gouranga dasa: Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! That’s very inspiring. Since the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas are accessible to all classes of people without the consideration of qualification and offenses, they would certainly feel an instant and deep experience of the Lord in their own way by chanting Them. They would try to interpret that deep experience in their own way since they would not know the scriptures but certainly they are experiencing the Lord in a small way which is a great beginning. And they are very fortunate because the offense of interpreting the glories of the Holy Names is not present in the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga…aparadha nahi mane, tarite nipuna.I received a phone call from a devotee today who said that when the Nityananda Gauranga Mantrarajas were given to a new family, they chanted for a few days and came back in great ecstasy profusely thanking the devotee who gave them the these great Mantras. If we are somehow successful in spreading these Nityananda Gauranga Mantras in this world in a big way along with the Hare Krishna Mahamantra, then the true Golden Age of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu can descend to this world for the next few thousand years because the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga can bring the same mercy and magnanimity which was personally brought by Lords Nityananda Gauranga Themselves 500 years ago being fully non-different from Their Lordships.
Daaso’smi, Swami Gaurangapada.

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krsna!
Dear Gouranga Prabhu, thanks for sharing this feedback of Bhakta Andrew, that is inspiring in itself! I am of the feeling that the smallest impression of the Holy Names left on the mind of a living entity is the greatest gift, and will keep one from the greatest danger. How much more so for one who distributes these merciful Holy Names.
