See Them Everywhere By Swami Gaurangapada
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! When you chant the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga with absorbed meditation, you can see Them everywhere where your eyes fall.
I feel so happy at this ecstatic realization imparted by the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga. During chanting, when I see a tree, I see the golden form of Lord Gauranga embracing that tree and crying in love and wetting the tree with His own syringes of tears. When I see some conditioned soul walking on the street, I see Lord Nityananda with His blue garments in front of him and He puts His golden rod-like hands around him and that soul becomes overwhelms in love, raises his hands and starts dancing in bliss, chanting His Holy Name.
Today Puri Dhama had 48 hours red alert for the Tsunami tidal waves but nothing happened. Surprisingly they never sound an emergency alert for how the rare human form of life is being wasted by 99.99% of the people without chanting the Holy Names. This is a much bigger emergency because no one can predict death and death will throw the soul into oblivion in the 8.4 million species of life. My suggestion is that daily every village, town, and city should sound an alert in the evening reminding the people to complete the chanting of the prescribed number of Holy Names on that day so that their next life will be sublime.
The govts, orgs and people give millions and billions of dollars to save the material bodies of the people and rehabilitate them which is very good and required, but when it comes to permanently save their souls from the cycle of birth, old age, disease and death, totally put an end to these material miseries and send the souls to the spiritual world where there is no more suffering, though the chanting of the Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna, they oppose this spiritual welfare work what to speak of sponsoring it.
They say that we can see the suffering of the material bodies with our own eyes but we cannot see the suffering of the soul neither the transmigration of the soul in the 8.4 million species of life and the spiritual world, so why should we help or even care about it. It is just like when an ostrich was chased by a cheetah, the ostrich stuck it's head in the sand and said that the cheetah is gone, but the cheetah was actually there behind and the cheetah caught the ostrich and devoured it.
Similarly the people nowadays deny the scientific process of the transmigration of the soul in the 8.4 million species of life and thus do not care to undertake or support the social welfare work for saving the soul from taking birth in the animal species, which is only possible by massively spreading the chanting of the Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna. Just like the ostrich, their blatant denial to even consider the ghastly possibility of the fall down of their souls to the animal species at the end of this life if they do not chant the Holy Names, will not stop the cheetah of their karma to throw their souls for zillions of lives and years in the 8 millions species of animal life (4 millions species are of human beings). Let us hope and pray that their eyes open one day and they take up the chanting and preaching of the Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna, before it is too late.
