Drop of Mercy By Bhakta Igor
Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krishna All glories to all assembled devotees! All glories to Swami Gaurangapada! All glories to this sublime chanting of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna!
Today while I was chanting Gauranga Naam, due to my Gurudevas mercy I had some small realization that I would like to share with you in order to glorify my Gurudeva and this sublime process of chanting Nityananda Gauranga and Hare Krishna.
While I was chanting Gauranga Naam today, for only few seconds in my mind I saw picture of Lord Gauranga and Shrilla Ramananda Raya who was praying to Lord Chaitanya. Behind Lord Gauranga I saw Their Lordships Shri Shri Radha Krishna and automatically I felt within my hearth that there is no difference between Lord Gauranga and Radha Krishna. That feeling came to my hearth. In that moment I recall famous verse shri krishna chaitanya radha krishna nahe anya and I was feeling that chanting Gauranga Naam is non-different from chanting Hare Krishna. I also felt that devotee who is chanting Gauranga Naam actually directly worship Shri Shri Radha-Krishna and that all secrets are hidden within Naam.
In that single moment, due to my Gurudevas mercy, I felt that if person just chant all secrets and mysteries will be revealed and all auspiciousness will manifest. In that moment I felt some kind of natural humility within my hearth. I understand that this feeling is highest praman or evidence for me that Gurudeva and Lord Gauranga mercifully showed to me. In just few seconds I felt so intense realization that today I am thinking about that all day. I felt so insignificant, but simultaneously so happy because I came in contact with my Gurudeva, and that he gave me this supreme process of chanting Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna. I felt only drop of nectar in that second and that drop is enough to inspire me to chant more and more for whole life. I wanted to share this with all of you on forum. Please just chant Nityananda Gauranga and Hare Krishna and all doubts will vanish. Just chant. Speculations and theoretical knowledge can not help us in this spiritual path. Only if we chant Nityananda and Gauranga Naam we will be able to practically realize how magnanimous are Lord Nityananda and Lord Gauranga and how fortunate we are just to have this rarest opportunity to chant Their Names. For all others, unfortunately, chanting of Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas will remain great mystery.
