Title: Faith in Gauranga's Holy Name

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-03-05 18:44:00


Can you please elaborate on these specific points given by Shri ShridharMaharaja? Why is faith if Lord Gauranga rare/costly/not-accepted widely? Whatdoes Shri Maharaja means by ontologically?

Thank you for any light on this! Irejoice in the Holy Mantrarajas of Nityananda and Gauranga!




Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:



Unless the people of this world, very regularly study and read the topmostclassics like Shri Chaitanya Chandramrita, Shri Navadvipa Dhama Mahatmya, ShriChaitanya Mangala, Shri Chaitanya Bhagavata and Shri Chaitanya Charitamritaalong with chanting the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga, they will not beable to develop their full faith in the Supreme Personality of Godhead LordGauranga Mahaprabhu, the most confidential of all incarnations. This is statedin Shri Chaitanya Chandramrita:



Verse 91: ďAho, liberation from the cycle of birth and death is not sodifficult to attain, and pure devotional service to Lord Krishna which is veryrare can also be achieved somehow, but the rarest and the most confidentialsummit and goal of all achievement is the faith in and the causeless mercy ofthe Holy Name and Lotus Feet of Lord Gaurangachandra since this is rarelyachieved even in the most elevated Vaikuntha planets.Ē



Ontologically means to understand with full conviction that Lord Gauranga isthe combined form of Shri Shri Radha-Krishna. This faith comes by reading ShriChaitanya Charitamrita.



Yours in service, Swami Gaurangapada.
