Title: Mantrarajas and accelerated karma?
User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2007-03-14 06:50:33
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krsna!
It is said that chanting of Holy Names is like blazing fire and that our karma is like old dry leaves, and on this way if someone is chanting ?karma from previous, numerous births became destroyed by blazing fire of Holy Names.
I have question about chanting Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas regarding karma. It seems to me that by chanting Mantrarajas my karma 揳ccelerated?on some way, so many realizations, so many goings-on, so many nice and hard situations in such short time.
I used to chant only Hare Krsna and I did not have such realizations, but after I started to chant Nityananda and Gauranga regularly I have feeling that I am on super speed highway, and so many, many inner and external realizations, situations, and many tests are present. It seems to me that karma from several lives is condensed in only few days!
Is such understanding correct? How does regularly chanting of Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas have an effect on our karma?
Nityananda! Gauranga ! Hare Krsna!
Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Dear Igor, When one chants the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga, then the positive spiritual realizations will flood one's consciousness as These two Holy Names directly connect us to the spiritual realm without any obstacles of our anarthas and offenses like in Hari Naam which considers our qualification (krishna naam kare aparadhera vichaara). Chanting Nityananda Gauranga just once destroys our karma from the past unlimited number of lives. Thus the karmic reactions are already finished. So the tests which come in our life when we chant Nityananda Gauranga are directly due to the Lord's desire to quickly purify us more and more. While chanting Nityananda Gauranga, every test should be accepted as the supreme mercy of the Lord upon us as the test helps us to show our sincerity to the Lord and come even more closer to Him.
