Glories of Lord Caitanya - Part 8

Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva.

This is in continuation of the transcription of one of the nectarean class given by our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj on Caitanya Caritamrta Adilila, Chapter 1 verse14, in Kaula Lumpur on 18th March 1992. In the previous offering we heard from Maharaj that to have unflinching faith,

awe must study the scriptures - Srila Prabhupada's books, systematically and seriously. 
b. we must have theistic conduct.

Maharaj was explaining about the conversation between Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Prakashananda Saraswathy on the importance of chanting Holy Names.

Now we shall hear further.

 Maharaj: (Mahaprabhu said)

Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare
Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare

 Because I was following his instructions very sincerely to chant 

Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare
Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare

something good happened and I was very happy in my life. So, I went back to My spiritual master and told him, "because of your instruction to chant

Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare
Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare

by your mercy, I have become very happy and something good has happened in my life. So My Guru Maharaja was very pleased and said again that you continuously chant: 

Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare
Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare

And if you really sincerely chant

Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare
Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare

So this is the natural result that you will feel good and you’ll become happy. So since then, continuously I am chanting: 

Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare
Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare

So now I have decided not to study Vedas, but to continuously chant

Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare
Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare

And I would request you, that if you want to be happy and good then you also please chant:  

Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare
Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare

And Prakashanand was attracted to chant: 

Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare
Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare

 Finally he submitted to the lord you know and continuously chanted:  

Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare
Hare Rāma Hare Rāma Rāma Rāma Hare Hare

Krishna willing we shall continue to hear more nectar from Maharaj in the subsequent offerings.

Hare Krishna.
Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva
