The Necter Glories of sri Vrindavan Dham ( Sataka 1, Text 1 ) Part - 1

Meditating on the lotus feet of Srimati Radharani and Sri Krishna,
(who echants the minds of all living entities with the sound of His
flute), offering myself at the dust of Lord Caitanya's lotus feet, and with
great respect offering obeisances to the great devotees of the Lord, who
are like so many oceans of transcendental virtue, I shall now, with great
delight, begin to glorify the transcendental opulences of Sri Vrindavana dhama.
[ By - Srila Prabodhananda Saraswati Swami ]

    " O son of kunti, the contact between the senses and the sense objects gives rise to fleeting perceptions of happiness and distress. These are non-permanent, and come and go like the winter and summer seasons. O descendent of Bharat, one must learn to tolerate them without being disturbed."

Mantra: "man" means "mind" and "tra" means "to deliver".Thus a mantra is a transcendental sound vibration with potency to liberate the mind from material conditioning."Hare" is the vocative case (addressing form) of "Hari". This is another name for Krsna. Also, another name for Srimati Radharani is Hara, and "Hare" is again the vocative case of this name. Thus, "Hare" refers either to Lord Hari or to Srimati Radharani. "Krsna" means "The All-Attractive". The syllable "krs" is the attractive…
