Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!
The unparalleled magnanimity of Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name can be conceived in two ways. In terms of perfectional stage, He and His Name are willing and desiring to grant one the topmost achievement of all the desires on the path of bhakti yoga, including the eternal and most intimate service at the Lotus Feet of Shrimati Radharani and Her Closest Associates, along with the eternal service to Lord Gauranga Himself (as Gauranga=Radha-Krishna, Gaura Lila = Krishna Lila). As long as one is attached to and drinks the nectar of Lord Gauranga's Lotus Feet and Holy Name, one is being given place at Shrimati Radharani's Lotus Feet (Shria Prabhudananda Saraswati, Shri Chaitanya Chandramrita). That is why the eternal perfect associates of Lord Gauranga, like Shrila Haridasa Thakura or Shrila Narahari Sarkara, desire to spend last moments of their manifest pastimes in chanting Lord Gauranga's Name in order to teach us how to obtain all our cherished fruits of our Naam bhajan and also to relish Themselves these fruits which are given to Them by the final absorption into Gauranga Naam, Rupa, Guna and Lila (which automatically and simultaneously reveal also the whole Radha-Krishna Tattva).
"Haridasa Thakura began chanting, “Shri Krishna Chaitanya”, again and again, and while drinking the sweetness of the Lord’s moon-like face, tears constantly glided down from his eyes. It was while chanting the holy name, “Shri Krishna Chaitanya”, that Haridasa Thakura gave up his air of life and left his material body." (Chaitanya Charitamrita)
gaura vihane, na vañchi parāṇe, gaura ka’rechi sāra
gaura baliya, jauka jīvane, kichu nā cāhiba āra
"Without Gaura I cannot live. Gaura is my everything. I pray to give up my life taking the name of Gaura – I ask for nothing else." (Shrila Narahari Sarkara, Mana Re Kaha Na Gaura Katha)
In term of conditioned stage, Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name along with Lord Nityananda and His Holy Name are ready to offer shelter to the most fallen and degraded persons. That is the second aspect of Lords Nityananda Gauranga's unprecedented magnanimity. Although They are offering something which has never been given before and which has been carefully conceiled all the countless years even from great vedic scholars and yogis, They are ready to give it to anyone and everyone, regardless the fallen and conditioned stage of one's existence.
shri chaitanya avatare bada vilakshana
aparaadha-sattve jiva labhe prema-dhana.. (Navadvipa Dhama Mahatmya, Ch.1 Verse 51)
"The incarnation of Lord Gauranga is exceptionally opulent, powerful and influential among all forms of God. Even though Lord Krishna's Name considers offenses and does not give love to an offensive soul, Lord Gauranga's Name, Pastimes and Abodes do not consider offenses and award pure love of God to even the offensive souls. This unprecedented and unimaginable munificence of Lord Gauranga's incarnation is the only life-saving hope for the conditioned souls of Kali Yuga."
aparaadha baadhaa tara kichu naahi kare
niramala krishna-preme taara ankhi jhare..53
"Even the formidable obstacles posed due to the offenses in one's heart are rendered ineffective by the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga and the eyes miraculously flow with the sublime tears of pristinely pure love for Lord Krishna when one chants the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga even though offenses are present in the heart."
Lord Nitaai-Gauranga and His Holy Name is the beginning as well as the end. Lord Gauranga covers the all spectrum, as He is the Original, Complete and Most Merciful Supreme Lord. Thus it is a very great gift the Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga, and our wholehearted expressions of gratitude shall be repeatedly offered to all the devotees of the Lord, who were, are and will be revealing and distributing this rarest gift of Nityananda Gauranga Naam to all the most needy and desperate souls as myself.
