Title: Associates of Lord Gauranga and attraction to other Lord’s form

User: Igor†††† Date: 2006-08-01 09:56:22


Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!

We can see that some of associates of Lord Gauranga had some particular attraction toward Lord Gauranga and to some specific Lordís form or incarnation like Nrsimha or Ramacandra.

There is example of Nrsimhananda Brahmacari who had great affection to Lord Nrsimha etc. But at the same time they are associates of Lord Gauranga who is avatari or source of all other incarnation or Godís forms. So how to properly understand that in association of Lord Gauranga such devotees still have some specific attraction to some other form of Lord like Nrsimhananda Brahmacari had attraction toward Nrsimha? Thank you so much.

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Guru Parampara! :pranams: Pranams! and :bless: Blessings! That is because they have two spiritual forms. With one form, Shrila Nrisinghananda serves Lord Nrisinghadeva in Lord Nrisingha's Vaikuntha planet but due to Lord Gauranga's causeless mercy, he also got elevated to Navadvipa part of Goloka where he serves Lord Gauranga is his second spiritual form. Same with Shrila Murari Gupta who serves Lord Rama as Shrila Hanuman in the spiritual planet of Ayodhya (which is higher than Vaikuntha but lower than Goloka) as well as in Navadvipa Goloka as Shrila Murari Gupta. Same with Shrila Uddhava who serves Lord Krishna in the spiritual planet of Dvaraka which is higher than Ayodhya but lower than Goloka and also serves Lord Gauranga in Navadvipa as Shrila Paramananda Puri. This list is unlimited...
