Title: Vaikuntha manifestation of Lord Gauranga

Dear Swami Gaurangapada Gurudeva,

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!


Please accept my humble obeisances.


Since longer time i have one question in my mind, which i would like to kindly ask You to answer:


Reading Shri Chaitanya Bhagavata i got to know that Lord Gauranga's manifestation of supremacy and His manifestation as the Supreme Enjoyer are of Vaikuntha nature. We know also from Shri Navadvipa Dhama Mahatmya, that the loving exchange of the souls with Lord Gauranga is either dasa (as a servant) or shanta (neutral), same like in Vaikuntha Dhama of Lord Vishnu. There could be maybe other similarities too, which i am still not aware of...


How to properly understand the significance of Lord Gauranga's Vaikuntha Supremacy manifestation and its worship for the spiritual practitioners aspiring for the highest spiritual abode of Goloka Vrindavana? How it is that this Vaikuntha manifestation of Lord Gauranga, seeming to be of type aishvarya (awe and reverence) is present in the spiritual planet of Goloka, which is madhurya abode (sweetness)?


Thanking You very much in advance for making me understand this deep tattva (spiritual truth) properly


Yours gratefully,
