A Chat Transcript (30/03/03)  -- By Swami Gaurangapada


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: The most rare thing is this world is

the name of Gauranga. But it is He who who is the life and soul of

all living entities."


Devotee 3: I am at home now and this is the first time I can hear Maharaja !!!!!


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: CB Antya 1.71-72: sakala bhuvana ebe

gaya gauracandra. tathapiha sabe nahi gaya bhutavrnda..71..


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: "The whole universe is chanting and

singing the name of Gauranga.


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: But those who are Bhuta Vrinda (haunted by ghosts) are averse to this chanting."


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: Shrila Prabhupada Lilamrita:

His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: Chp 6:

His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: "The Chaitanya-bhagavata had

predicted that the name of Lord Chaitanya would one day be known in

every town and village. Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta had wanted that." (SPL



His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: Do you know who was chanting JAPA of

Lord Gauranga's Name. It is none other than Shrila Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya.


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: Cc Madhya 6.258 `shri-krishna-chaitanya

saci-suta guna-dhama' ei dhyana, ei japa, laya ei nama


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya always

chanted the holy name of Gauranga, Shri Krishna Chaitanya, son of mother

Saci and reservoir of all good qualities. Indeed, chanting the holy

names Gauranga became his japa, meditation and nama-smarana."


Devotee 3: wow..


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: All the acharyas are constantly

chanting Nityananda-Gauranga and constantly chanting Hare Krishna

also simultaneously. This is inconceivable to our dull intelligence


Devotee 4: he was the one who debated with mahaprabhu


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: because they have two spiritual

bodies. One in Navadvipa and one in Vrindavana.


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: I hope that answers your question

Devotee 3: ALL the Acharyas live in Navadvipa and Vrindavana as



His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: From Jaiva Dharma Chp 17:

His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: Babaji: "Krishna and Gaura-kisora are

not different. They are both shelters of the feature of sweetness

(madhurya-rasa). They do have one difference. Madhurya-rasa (the

Lord's sweetness) has two features: 1. madhurya (sweetness), and 2.

audarya (mercy). When sweetness is prominent, Lord Krishna is

manifested. When mercy is prominent, Lord Gauranga is manifested. The

spiritual world of Vrndavana is divided into two abodes: 1. the abode

of Lord Krishna, and 2. the abode of Lord Gauranga. (contd)

His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: The eternally perfect and eternally

liberated souls who have sweetness first and mercy second reside in

Lord Krishna's abode. They are Lord Krishna's associates. The eternally

perfect and eternally liberated souls who have mercy first and

sweetness second reside in Lord Gauranga's abode. They are Lord

Gauranga's associates. Some souls manifest two forms and reside in

both abodes simultaneously. Other souls manifest only one form and

are present in one of the abodes and not in the other.


Devotee 3: how do souls manifest these bodies, Maharaja?


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: Souls who during the time of sadhana

worship only Lord Gauranga, at the time of attaining perfection go to

Lord Gauranga's abode and serve Him there. Souls who during the time

of sadhana worship only Lord Krishna, at the time of attaining

perfection go to Lord Krishna's abode and serve Him there. Souls who

during the time of sadhana worship both Lord Krishna and Lord Gauranga,

at the time of attaining perfection manifest two forms, go to both

Lord Krishna's abode and Lord Gauranga's abode, and in their two forms

serve the two Lord's simultaneously in both places. This truth: that

Lord Gauranga and Lord Krishna are simultaneously one and different

from each other, is a very confidential secret. (Chp 17, Jaiva Dharma)


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: Cc Adi 11.33: navadvipe purusottama

pandita mahasaya, nityananda-name yanra mahonmada haya Purusottama

Pandita, a resident of Navadvipa, was the Krishna's eighth gopala,

Stoka-Krishna for Vrindavan. He would become almost mad as soon as he

chanted or heard the holy name 'Nityananda'.


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: Rupa Goswami says that one should

hope against hope to attain the mercy of the devotees of Lord



Devotee 3: Jai !!!


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: Shri Chaitanya-Bhagavata, Madhya-

Khanda 3.134: vanik adhama murkha ye karila para, brahmanda pavitra

haya nama laile yanra. Translation: "The entire universe is purified

by chanting the name of Lord Nityananda as it is only He who

delivered the fallen, the foolish, and the merchants."


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: I am sorry I can't give up chanting

this verse


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: WHY DO THE COMMON PEOPLE NOT GET






Devotee 3: I am so dull I do not know


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: (A)ara eka gudha katha suna sarva

jana; kalijive yogya vastu gaura-lila-dhana ""Please hear a most

confidential secret. The most suitable thing for the conditioned

souls in Kali-yuga in the treasure of Gauranga-lila."

His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: (B) krishnanama krishnadhama mahatmya

apara; sastrera dvaraya jane sakala samsara "The unlimited glories of

Krishna's Name (maha-mantra) and Krishna's Abode (Shri Vrndavana) are

known to the whole world through the revealed scriptures."


Devotee 4: Jai Gaurangaaaaaaaaaaa!


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: From the day these glories of the

names of Nityananda and Gauranga have entered my ear holes, I

have become mad and do not feel like talking about anything except

chanting and singing Their glories.


His Holiness Swami Gaurangapada: Total fanatic. so please forgive me
