As soon as we take up the Mahamantra for chanting we cannot but remember the great avatara purusha –Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu!

Nama Article 15th March 2014



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.





As soon as we take up the Mahamantra for chanting we cannot but remember the great avatara purusha –Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu!


Chaitanya Mahaprabhu lived for 48 years only. He spent the first 12 years of his life playing pranks just as Krishna had done in his childhood. For the next 12 years of his life he shut himself up in a room with a few friends and performed Nama sankirtan (chanting the Lord's Names and praises). The next 12 years he visited various holy places. It was during these wanderings that he visited Srirangam in the south. And the last 12 years of his life was spent in solitude inside a cave at Puri.


Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's disciples Sanatana Goswami and Roop Goswami were busy authoring books. They found no peace till they converted the gushing thoughts into words. It is only through such disciples of Mahaprabhu do we learn the life history of this great avatar.


Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji


Chaitanya Mahăprabhu, a great scholar that he was, threw away everything and took to incessant chanting of 'eka năma'


Mahaprabhu made lions and tigers sing and dance to the tune of Nama Kirtan. What does this go to show? If you chant the Maha Mantra constantly, the whole world will be at your feet!


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!


Catch hold of the Mahamantra. Chant it continuously, whenever you get time and leave the rest to Him.


When a person utters the Divine Name of Shri krishna, be he a fool, immediately Shri Gauranga (Chaitanya Mahaprabhu) bows down before him in reverence.


I do not know the full potency or the fruitful benefit of chanting the Divine Names. The sweet Name of Shri Krishna dances on my tongue of its own accord.


The fruit attained through the chanting of this single Name of the Lord cannot be attained through any other means. This is the easiest method.


One can attain Liberation if he Chants the Single Name of the Lord again and again. Chanting the Name of the Lord is like traveling in the right direction


Though the Sun's rays are spread equally all over, yet when they are passed through a lens thus directing them through a single point they have the power to burn up


Is it then surprising if such a mind does not remain steadfast on a single path of worship?


Chanting a single Divine Name of the Lord ('eka Nãma') helps the chanter deepen his concentration and also helps in sustaining the chanting for long hours effortlessly


Anantha janmanjche(m) thapa eka nama l


A single Divine Name is so powerful that one cannot commit as many sins as it can erase even if he were to take a vow to commit only sins.


Just as an arrow travelling towards its target, the Naama does not stop its work until it shows God to us.


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :


Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
