The Jaiva Dharma in general refers to the Gaura Mantras. It says just like there are Krishna Mantras to worship the Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Krishna, similarly there are Gaura Mantras to worship the Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Gauranga. Since both are the same Personality so there is no difference between the Krishna Mantras and Gaura Mantras for the liberated souls. For the conditioned souls, the Gaura Mantras are more easily accessible for Krishna Mantras and the only gateways to the Krishna Mantras as Lord Gaura manifests audarya i.e. magnanimous mercy and Lord Krishna manifests madhurya i.e. sweetness.
