Commentry by HH Jayapataka swami Maharaj

 

      I am very happy.This week is the holy name week.This holy name is nondifferent from the lord.Thats why in  whole vrindavan  they chant the name of Krishna.When Krishna left the gopis in the rasa dance ,the gopis chanted hare Krishna.When yasoda was churning butter she chanted krishna’s name.”Golokera prema dana hari nama sankirtana”.The chanting of the holy name of Krishna brings Krishna prema from goloka vrindavana.In Coimbatore 10000 people chanted the holy name.They chanted 108 times.Some said the voice inside them is repeating these names. When I was a new devotee in Montreal that time we went outside to maintain Srila  Prabhupada and ourselves.When I was working one workman fainted. So I chanted hare Krishna in his ear.Very soon he came back to his conciousness. He said the sound was like echo. This became louder and louder. It became much louder that it pulled him out. That sound filled the whole universe.That holy name is non different from Krishna. By chanting the holy name are you feeling spiritual bliss? Is that true? I heard that a program was conducted only for girls and they were chanting, dancing(mantra rock),feeling bliss.Recently I went to a program in Durgapur in NIT. There engineering students listened to all our presentations and lectures. Then I said how Lord Caitanya had given this process which is simply bliss. ”sironmani kevala ananda kanda”I said prabhupada went to the west to give this process chanting hare Krishna, dancing, hearing some classes and eating some prasadam. Mahaprabhu has given this process chant and dance,move your chairs.Everybody danced and chanted.I went to srilanka the people asked me why are you always telling from Bhagavatam? Tell from skanda purana,siva purana.In skanda purana there is one quote. That is we should chant the two syllables hari.By chanting this hari, Krishna will steal from you all your sufferings, garbage, bad karma. Hari Hari Hari .If we chant the names of Gaura hari,Gaura hari nityananda, we get love for Krishna. So this process of chanting the holy names is mentioned in all the puranas.That was propagated by Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda.So they are supremely merciful.”parama karuna bahuduhi jana nitai gaura Chandra”.They are supremely merciful.That means parama karuna.They are the Lords.Incarnations of Krishna and Balarama.

They have nothing to achieve. They have everything.But they give their mercy. Locana dasa thakur recommends “bhajo bhajo bhai caitanya nitai”.They tell us give up these illicit activity. Gambling,meat eating,intoxication,drinking wine,girls association.We are against illicit sex, but we are promoting families. On july 30th I read srila prabhupada letter “these children are sent by Krishna”.We are very fortunate to help them on their spiritual platform.They are actually vaikunta kids. Brahmacaris and Sanyasis we can not help kids. So Prabhupada said don’t be confused this is very important seva.? He wrote to Arundathi mataji if you don’t have time to take care your child give up your pujari service. Ladies you must take care of your children.I am very happy to see here today nice kids. This is oneway of making devotees. But it also takes lots of time. Its not easy service. We should encourage them to take care of their children and make them very much positive to Krishna. So we give up illicit activity. We absorb ourself in the rasa of Krishna bhakti. Also we chant the holy names-yuga dharma. We are absorbed in Krishna consciouness and chant

“ hare Krishna hare Krishna Krishna Krishna hare hare

 hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare”.

Study my dear brothers you don’t find no kind persons than these two with in the 3 worlds as merciful as nitai gaura Chandra.Even the animals are chanting.Stones melted.This actually happened.By Lord Caitanyas mercy the animals of jharikand also chanted hare Krishna. In the alarnath temple we also see how Lord Caitanya melted even the stone.Srila prabhupada said “Lord caitanya made animals to chant,you make atleast humans to chant.I like that all the girls are chanting.This is the week of the holyname. We have to see everybody chanting and dancing in bliss. Sukadeva Goswami says that this kaliyuga is the ocean of defects.Kalav dose nide rajan…It is not idly dosa. Its ocean of defects.But there is one good quality.What is that?

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

 Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

Only one good thing.One good quality.If you are not chanting then what it is? Nothing good. I am also happy that Sumithra Krishna prabhu and many others are giving opportunity for everyone to chant the holyname. This chanting process not only free’s us from maya but also takes us to the supreme destination.So please chant everyday. By chanting your life will be perfected.

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

 Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

Prabhupada said you cannot chant any name of Krishna,any name of lord.When Prabhupada came to Calcutta in 1975,he mentioned that he talked to Islamic followers. Allah oh Akbar means parabrahma.So like that he told if you are not chanting hare Krishna you chant allah oh akbar.Like this Christians can chant the names of god in Hebrew. I heard in south America one Christian lady is chanting jeso Krishna jeso Krishna…Then she thought oh no one is watching,why not chant hare Krishna. Then she chanted   Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

                  Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

And she told this is the same and it is still more powerful. In our Vedas there is only one god. One parabrahma. He has unlimited names. So like that please make everybody chant. Especially this week. If they don’t want to chant hare Krishna tell them to chant whatever name they like. It should be a name of god. So like this everybody should merge in the chanting of the holyname. Now ofcourse in india 80% are hindus more or less.So every Indian tell all of them to chant hare Krishna this week. Lord Caitanya when he visited the temples of karthikeya,ganesha,durga,shiva,Vishnu he chanted hare Krishna maha mantra. He also wanted to chant hare Krishna in all the temples. Demigods are pleased if we chant hare Krishna. Infact in shiva purana it is said chanting sahasranama is transcendental. Chanting one name of Rama is equal to the thousand name of Vishnu. It is spoken by lord shiva.If you chant one name of Krishna that’s equal to three thousand names of Vishnu. You don’t know that sloka? Lord Caitanya like to quote  from Brhad naradiya purana.Harer nama harer nama harer namaiva kevalam…So please engage everybody to chant. This chanting is very very powerful. We cannot under estimate how powerful is it. We cannot over estimate.Is there any question of the holy name which I answer? Srila prabhupada never converted anyone from his religion. He said we are not changing anyone but we are making them to believe fully. Christians believe in one god. We don’t have to reject jesus. We respect jesus. But we chant hare Krishna. Jesus is a son of god we know. But Krishna is the father. This vaisnava religion is very great it brings all together.

We are conducting big programmes and making people to chant once and they are not coming again so what is the benefit we get from that?

Coimbatore youth said they asked the people to chant one round everyday.70% agreed to chant one round everyday. They got 3000 contacts .If some people accepts chanting,please tell them to chant everyday. Also from those who are interested try to take their names,contacts. Even if they chant one time it puts them in the orbit of Krishna. So like this also by chanting one time they are inspired they again and again also come in to the association of devotees.

How to practically increase the taste for chanting?

We should chant more and more. Also get the mercy of Lord Caitanya,Nityananda.

“Sri Krishna caitanya prabhu nityananda sri advaita gadadara sri vasadi gaura bhakta vrnda”

I met one man he was chanting 16 rounds for 26 years but he felt no taste. I asked did you chant the name of Lord Caitanya. He said no,I came from some other sampradaya. I gave this panca tattva mantra and he started chanting it first and then hare Krishna. After 3 months I came back to the same place. From a distance he came running he fell at my feet.With tears in his eyes he asked what mantra you gave me? Now I got taste to chant hare Krishna. Also srila prabhupada said someone who is too sinful he can chant the name of nitai gaur. Others give their mercy to their followers. But nitai gaur gives mercy even to the non followers. Jagai,Madhai they are not followers.They were very bad people.They were even antisocial enemies. They can also get the mercy of nitai gaur.”Paapi thapi thaka chilo harinama udarilo tara sakshi jagai madhai”. In katwa I saw the Samadhi of jagai,madhai. It was 200m from the ganges. Everyday they go there chant and dance.They will cry

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

 Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

What mercy? What mercy? Please grab the lotus feet of nitai gaur.Haribol.

Last question.

How many rounds we have to chant to come out of the mental stress?

You keep on chanting continuously and tell me when it disappears.16 rounds works I think. Whoever chants 16 rounds daily they chant one crore names in one year.In one year you become a crorepati.12 rounds then 75 lakhs names,8 rounds 50 lakhs names,4 rounds 25 lakhs names. Exactly how many rounds removes the stress is the good experiment. I got so much bliss, on first day I chanted 32 rounds. So all my stress,all gone. So I don’t want to ask. I am not the person to ask. It depends on how much anxiety,how much stress you have. Also you can chant panca tattva mantra. This will help you.

So thank you all very much
