It is for this reason that Sri Mahaprabhu described Divine Love as the fifth purushartha (ultimate goal), even surpassing moksha (liberation). Such love blooms only out of selfless devotion to the Lord.

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.



Great saints have always been adorning this holy land of India like the perennial flow of Mother Ganges.These exalted souls have been reinforcing righteousness. The whole world, like a tree, stands firm even to-day only by the roots of dharma strengthened thus. There is no doubt that only by the grace of the Lord that one gets an opportunity to read the life histories of such great souls, who, even while living amongst worldly people, have been role models, and whose sole desire has been the welfare of the world.


On this sacred soil of India have appeared innumerable saints who have stressed that, "Human birth is very rare indeed. And the only goal of human-life is God-realisation." They have done a great favour to the laymen by clearly showing the different paths of karma, bhakthi and jnana, to realise God, according to the need of the time,


The incarnation of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the highly glorified of all the great saints of Kali Yuga, was purely to uplift innumerous souls from the clutches of worldly existence and lay them at the holy feet of Lord Krishna. A walking God, Sri Mahaprabhu was the repository of untainted devotion and love. Countless 'jivas' (lives) amply benefitted by this holy incarnation. His biography is fathomless and cannot be easily comprehended by the common man. Only those blessed by Sri Krishna get to know the life-history of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.


Sacrifice and detachment are the two most prominent means to attain devotion. Divine love springs only from sublime devotion. It is for this reason that Sri Mahaprabhu described Divine Love as the fifth purushartha (ultimate goal), even surpassing moksha (liberation). Such love blooms only out of selfless devotion to the Lord. The life-history of Sri Chaitanya, who bestowed bliss upon one and all, by exhibiting the rarest and highest states of Bhava (divine trance), will undoubtedly create a permanent picture of the graceful form and the wonderful qualities of the 'love-incarnate' Mahaprabhu and also devotion for Krishna in the reader's mind (heart).


The very name 'Chaitanya Mahaprabhu' reminds one's mind of his 'Hari Naama Sankeerthanam' done in a state of super-consciousness(Bhava Samadhi).

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 Năma') 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
