Why does no one preaching the chanting of Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga? Since no one preaches, one tends to think that it must be wrong.
††† Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:
In regards to chanting Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga along with†
the Hare Krishna Mahamantra, all the Scriptures and Acharyas have taught†
us to constantly chant these two merciful Holy Names.††
†You can find all the†
of the Nityananda Gauranga Nama book also.
If some devotees or institutions do not glorify the daily chanting of Holy†
Names of Nityananda and Gauranga along with the Hare Krishna Mahamantra,†
it does not change what
the Scriptures and Acharyas say about it. It is not a question of majority†
or minority. It is the question of the truth which is stated in the†
Scriptures and Acharyas.
Shrila Sacchidananda Bhaktivinoda Thakura categorically states in Shri†
Navadvipa-dhama-mahatmya Chp 1:
kali jivera aparadha asankhya durvara;
gauranga-nama vina tara nahika uddhara.
"The offenses and sins of the living entities in Kali-yuga are unlimited†
and absolutely insurmountable. That is why the souls can never ever be†
delivered without the regular
chanting the most merciful Holy Name of Gauranga."
One will get all success in one's spiritual and material quest by chanting†
the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga. These two Lords are so†
transcendentally desperate to attract the souls, who are Their part and†
parcels, to Their Holy Names, that They are willing to do anything and†
everything for that. Because this is what They come for again in Kali†
Yuga. Thus it defeats the purpose of Their advent to freely distribute†
Their Names, if they consider qualifications and disqualifications. je†
