Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!
While listening to one lecture of Swami Gaurangapada Maharaja i became
more aware of the following point resp. conclusion:
It is absolutely necessary to come to the stage of anartha-nivritti,
the stage where all unclean things are cleansed from the heart. This
happens however only then, if one chants without offenses. Otherwise
one gets stucked before and does not cross the stage of anartha
The question is then, how to advoid commiting offenses while chanting.
Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura states: "kali jivera aparadha asankhya
durvara", the offenses and sins of the living entities in Kali-yuga
are unlimited and absolutely insurmountable. But still, there is
possibility to overcome them while chanting...
One way is to chant continously the Hare-Krishna Mahamantra. In that
way, the offenses can not overpower one and slowly they will diminish.
But still, this method is difficult, as to chant continously has
become extremely exhausting in the present day.
The other way is to take full shelter of the Holy Names of Nityananda
and Gauranga along with the Hare Krishna Mahamantra, as they do not
consider any offenses and thus the purifying and uplifting effect is
taking place immediately. This is further confirmed by Shrila
Bhaktivinoda Thakura in the second part of the above mentioned verse:
"gauranga-naama vina tara nahika uddhara", that the souls can never
ever be delivered without the regular chanting the most merciful name
shri chaitanya avatare bada vilakshana
aparaadha-sattve jiva labhe prema-dhana..
"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." Shrila
So no one should miss the great opportunity of rapid spiritual
advancement via daily chanting a fixed number of rounds of the
Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas along with the Hare Krishna
Mahamantra. One can thus very quickly experience the dawn of our
inherent pure spiritual nature and chant the Holy Name of Lord
Gauranga-Krishna with taste and untiring spirit.
