Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji's Namadwaars and GOD satsangs across the world celebrates Chaitanya Mahaprabhu Jayanthi by chanting Mahamantra, Annadhanam to needy and Nagarakirtan on 16th March 2014
This is celebrated as 'Holi' Day.
After Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhuji's descent on earth on this day, it is also a 'holy' day.
His Holiness Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji, in his kirtan "Ashtadalapoo", beautifully speaks about the eight-petalled flower with which one has to worship the Lord. Each petal he refers to here is a quality that the worshipper should possess: Forgiveness, Truth, Compassion, Peace, Devotion, Dispassion, Love and Knowledge. Great saints have all shown us that the Lord will bestow us with these qualities if one humbly submits to Him in prayer. Hence the key to unlocking all of God's treasures lies in the single quality: Humility.
" All virtues are contained in the highest virtue, that is, H U M I L I T Y.
Likewise, all vices are contained in the one vice, that is, pride.
The excellent qualities in a man do not shine forth if he lacks humility. A man may have many vices but if he were humble this would show him to be a man of good nature.
Adi Sankara commences His Shatpati stotra as, ' Avinayam apanaya vishno.'
'Avinayam' means pride. He prays to the Lord to remove his pride because God graces only those devotees who are devoid of pride.
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu who established Nãma Siddhãnta not only said that a Bhakta should deem himself to be lower than a blade of grass but He also prostrated to everyone.

While those who have mastered the Mantras to provide relief to mundane worldly pains like scorpion bite etc. hesitate to disclose the Mantras, how compassionate is our Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who has generously given to everyone the greatest of Mantras - the Mahamantra for the welfare of the entire Universe!
