Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai ki jaya!
by Narendra Sharma
"All glories to Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu! All glories to Lord Nityananda Prabhu! All glories to Advaita Acarya! And all glories to all the devotees of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu!"
(Caitanya-caritamrta, Antya-lila 18.2)
I am one of so many who received a drop from the ocean of causeless mercy.
In 1974 I came from India to look for so-called better life in Hong Kong. That time I was 17 years old.
I stayed in Hindu temple where my uncle was a priest. During the winter time my uncle told me that one swamiji has come and we all have to go and take his darsan, as he used to go to ISKCON temple regularly.
During that time I did not realize that he is the swami whose lotus feet I will never forget in my this life and life after life. He is our dearest A.C. Bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhupada.
That was the first time I saw Srila Prabhupada. However, as Srila Prabhupada has mentioned that "although according to material vision His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada passed away from this material world on the last day of December 1936, I still consider His Divine Grace to be always present with me by His vani, His words." (Caitanya-caritamrta, Antya-lila, Concluding Words)
So we all should also feel His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhupada is always present in his books.
With his causeless mercy, I have small temple of Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai as per above pictures in our house in Jaipur (Gupt Vrindavana), where the Lord of Lords Sri Radha Govinda are situated Who is giving His causeless mercy to Rajasthanivasi.
My wife Dhaneshwari and my three children, Vinita, Heena and Prahlad, all of them are trying to serve Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai, Lord Narsimha Dev, Prahlad Maharaj and Srila Prabhupada.
In Bhagavad-gita As It Is, 13.8-12, Purport, Srila Prabhupada said:
"If one is in full Krsna consciousness, he can make his home very happy because this process of Krsna consciousness is very easy. One need only chant Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, accept the remnants of foodstuffs offered to Krsna, have some discussion on books like Bhagavad-gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam, and engage oneself in Deity worship. These four will make one happy."
