• Prabhuji plzz don't check authenticity of any text because its all about Bhakti.Navadwipa mahatamya is glorification of sthali of Chaitanya Mahaprabhuji plzz let that radiation enter the heart and not agitate intellect because time is too short if we keep checking it like this way then beauty of Bhakti is gone......Devotion is when we take things as it is with full faith in Guru.If still you have queries there are senior members.Hare Krishna.
  • is navadvipa dhama mahatmya authentic?

    • Written by the Srila Bhaktivonod in the mood of love for Gaura Nitai, this literature represents the glorification of the birth place of Gauranga, Navadwip.

      Gaudi vaishnava bhakti scriptures are mainly written in the mood of Radha Krishna bhakti or madhurya rasa, as well as the Goura Nitay bhakti mood.

      Very often, devotees has inspiration to write beautifull poems and literature in the glory of Lord and His bhaktas, such bhakti mood literatures inspiring others and intensify particular rasa mood of bhakti.

  • 1) kali santaran upanishad defines the religion for all people of this age(yuga dharma) as " the chanting of the holy names of the supreme lord consisting of
    hare krishna hare krishna
    krishna krishna hare hare
    hare rama hare rama
    rama rama hare hare
    is the only means for deliverence of the people in kaliyuga"{this is in the form of a conversation between Brahma and Narada}.

    2) but the k.s.upanishad doesnt give full and deep understanding of the nature,meaning,effects & procedure of the holy name. (the deeper understanding of the mahamantra is given by our acharya's like bhaktivinod thakur,vishwanath charavarti thakur ,jiva goswami and so on)

    -- u can refer "harinama cintamani" ; therin srila haridas thakur explains the whole subject matter of the mahamantra---

    **i can give some remnants of this subject matter which i received from my guru-

    -the holy name has 3 seed words - "hare", "krishna" & "rama".
    -in the mahamantra these 3 names are arranged in a certain way ( many people change the order of the mahamantra {by placing hare rama first & hare krsna next} or {by changing hare into radhe ie, radhe krsna radhe krsna krsna krsna radhe radhe....and so on} using their own logic and perseption.). but the arrangement of these 3 names have particular meaning
    ie, each pair represents the verses of the siksastakam and the stages of bhakti

    example: "hare krishna"- represents the first verse of siksatakam(ceto darpana marjanam) & the stage of shraddha.

    next"hare krsna"is second verse (nam nam akari bahuda) & signifies the stage of sadhusanga or bhajana kriya.

    next "krsna krsna" refers to 3rd verse (trnad api sunicena) & stage of anartha nivrtti. and so on.

    actually there are many more deep things within this mahamantra .

    if u read the book u will get solid understaing of the holyname. and along with it if u regularly chant the mahamantra offencelessly,u will realise that the mahamantra contains everything within it (His name,His form,His qualities,His pastimes,His abode,His associates,ur relation and service with all of these and so on .{"everthing is within this mahamantra"})

    hare krsna
    • Radhey Radhey Prabhuji its such an amazing description beyond everything ......thanks for enlightening me.....your servant Nidhi.
  • Thank you Prabhuji.
  • The most important thing about the (mantra) is that because of it's cleansing & purifying effects upon the chanters and their environment it is a auspices service. The Law of reciprocation allows Krishna to serve those who serve Him! Otherwise "with no performance of services God wI'll have little/no
    motivation inspiration nor karmic obligation to assist us in any fashion. Chanting I'd the fulfillment of that requisite. There is no other way, there's no other way to become ellagabal for God's special faver than that of this chanting, Haray Haray Bolah. .
    • Sri Narada asked Sri Brahma how to counteract effects of Kali age ???  lol

      Well Naradaji wouldnt be devarishi, if he need to ask anyone how to do it. This is kind of those scriptures, which says that  Naradaji ones entered family life, just to taste how its like to be in illusion. :)

      Its seems in the past of India existed some kind of national sport between brahmana bandhus, where those who wrote better scripture in the name of Sri Vyasadeva, that one will be respected and get more donations from the people.


      Chanting holy names of Lord is the best medicine in this Age, and not only in this Age.

      Someone says Allah is the best name of Lord, someone claim Rama or Krishna, someone Narayana,

      but those who have seen the truth knows that there is no discrimination based on material dualities, such as higher-lower, better-worse,......

      • You are right that there is no difference in lords name but there are some Yuga DharmS and Yuga mantras I'm only enquiring about it.
