Harinama in the heart of the Sankirtan movement – Sridham Mayapura
You have come to Vrndavana, perhaps for the first time in life. So it is very good opportunity. Vrndavana-dhama. Aprakrta, cintamani. Similarly, you are coming from Navadvipa. That is also cintamani-dhama [Bs. 5.29]. These two dhamas, places, are not ordinary places. ………..And in the dhama, if you chant Hare Krsna mantra, then it increases thousand times. (Srila Prabhupada Lecture — March 14, 1974, Vrndavana)
Wherever the Harinama Ruci are there you can find ecstasy, and in Sridham Mayapura it increases unlimitedly.
“The Krsna consciousness movement will inundate the entire world and drown everyone, whether one be a gentleman, a rogue or even lame, invalid or blind.
(Caitanya Caritamrta Adi 7.26)
“Thus with two intentions the Lord appeared with His devotees and tasted the nectar of prema with the congregational chanting of the holy name.
Thus He spread kirtana even among the untouchables. He wove a wreath of the holy name and prema, with which He garlanded the entire material world.
Caitanya Caritamrta Adi 4.40-41
