In honour of the forthcoming Sri Nabadwip Dham Parikrama:

SRI NABADWIP DHAM MAHATMYA

Preface
"As there are books about the glory of other Dhams, so there should be a book about the glory of Sri Nabadwip Dham"—long ago this desire arose in the hearts of the sadhus. But because such a book cannot be published until Sriman Nityananda Prabhu desires it, it has remained unpublished. Now that a suitable time has arrived by the inspiration of Sriman Nityananda Prabhu, and with the sanction of the Vaisnava sadhus, I have published this book."

Sriman Navadvipa-dhama-vandana
"One who resides in Nabadwip without duplicity and recites this prayer with devotion at the time of worshipping the Lord, genuinely attains the supremely delightful joy of love for the Lord, the embodiment of spiritual ecstasy—the son of Sachi, who is Krishna Himself."

Servant or Merchant?
"Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur said that instead of serving Gurudev, Nityananda Prabhu, Krishna, we make Them serve us—we must not make Nityananda Prabhu, Gurudev our servants. Do not make Guru and Krishna your servant, a bribe-taker."

SRI NABADWIP DHAM MAHATMYA

Chapter One: The Glories of the Dham
"The glories of Nabadwip Mandal are unlimited. Brahma and the other gods do not know them. So, who can describe them? Ananta Sesa is unable to describe them with thousands of mouths. So, how will I, a tiny soul, be able to? By the will of Sri Chaitanya, the devotees have ordered me, and so I describe the glories of Nadia by their mercy."

 

In honour of Sri Sivaratri:

"The chief of the Devas, whose body is decorated by snakes, whose body shines like the moon, who has five heads, who carries his weapon known as Pasupat, who gives boons, who is of satisfied nature, who holds the Ganga on his head, who maintains those who give obeisance to him, who is easily pleased—I offer my obeisances to Sada Siva, who is dear to Hari, and whose crown is the moon."

Chapter Two: The Nature and Dimensions of the Dham
"Nabadwip Dham shines eternally within Gauda Mandal, and is served by Ganga Devi.

SRI NABADWIP DHAM MAHATMYA

Chapter Twelve: Sri Sri Rtudwip and Sri Radha Kunda
"At dawn, the devotees arose and called out to Sri Gaura and Nitaichand. Feeling great joy, Nityananda and the devotees then departed, leaving Champa Hatta behind..."

Chapter Thirteen: Sri Vidya Nagar and Sri Jahnudwip
"Srivas danced with Jiva. Sometimes they cried, and sometimes they danced continuously. All the other devotees danced as they walked. Hearing the glories of Gauranga from the mouth of Nitai, Jiva floated in the greatest joy."

 

namo maha-vadanyaya krsna-prema-pradaya te
krsnaya krsna-chaitanya-namne gaura-tvise namah

"Again and again I offer my obeisance unto You, Sri Krishna Chaitanya, the supremely merciful, golden form of Sri Krishna, the giver of Krishna-prema."

"Standing erect, the hairs of His body rebuke the blossoming campaka flowers. Raising His arms, again and again He calls out "Hari! Hari!" Surrounded by His devotees, again and again He sings and dances. Streams of tears flow from His eyes and sprinkle the ground. Let us glorify Him, Lord Gauracandra."

I offer my obeisances to that beautiful Golden Lord, Gaurangasundar, the divine form of Krishna prema."

In honour of Srila Srivas Pandit:

Srivas Pandit's Devotion
"Srivas Pandit: 'You can get a son, a daughter, a father, a mother in every birth, but you will not get the Lord in every birth Lord. This life is very important, you can get the Lord in this life, then why should I misuse it? Why should I not use this opportunity?'"

Prayers to Sri Vaishnav Thakur:

SONG: Ei-bara karuna kara | এইবার করুণা কর
"O worshippable Vaisnava, be merciful to me this time. O saviour of the fallen, without you there is no one. In every birth I aspire for the dust of your feet."

SONG: Ohe Vaisnava Thakura | (ওহে) বৈষ্ণব ঠাকুর
"O worshippable Vaishnav, ocean of grace, be merciful to this servant. Give me the shade of your feet and purify me. I clasp your feet. You can give Krishna, you have that power. Calling, 'Krishna!' 'Krishna!', I run after you."

SONG: Ki-rupe paiba seva | কিরূপে পাইব সেবা
"I am so wicked, how will I ever get service? I do not have any attachment to Sri Guru and Vaishnavs! Prabhu, you see no fault in others, you are the saviour of the fallen. Please deliver Narottam this time!"

SONG: Dhana mora nityananda | ধন মোর নিত্যানন্দ
"The feet dust of the Vaishnavs is where I sport and take bath, Vaishnavs' name is the water oblation. My mind is intently fixed upon the remnants of Vaishnavs, and I am elated hearing the name of Vaishnavs."

'Bhajahu Re Mana'
'This song was written by Govinda Das. There were two brothers who used to always fight: one brother, Govinda, worshipped Mother Kali, and the other brother worshipped Lord Krishna...'

 

Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta
“Krishna gives the [surrendered souls] His spiritual power, and Maya, becoming powerless, stops attracting them.”

We have so many books, but we do not read them. We did not print books to use
them as a paper plate for chanachur or samosas.
