Bengali prose from the Sixth Chapter of Vaiñëava-Siddhänta-Mälä

(1)

nadéyä-godrume nityänanda mahäjan

patiyäche näm-haööa jéver käraë

In the land of Nadéyä, on the island of Godruma, the magnanimous Lord Nityänanda has opened up the Marketplace of the Holy Name, meant for the deliverance of all fallen souls.

Purport by Bhaktivinoda Öhäkura

'nadéyä'-this word indicates çré Navadvépa-Dhäm, the abode formed of nine islands. 'godrume'-of these nine islands, one is known as Godruma (the modern-day district of Gädigächä). 'nityänanda mahäjan'-Çré Mahäprabhu displayed His mercy toward the jévas tortured by Kali-yuga by ordering Çré Nityänanda Prabhu to preach the holy name (näm-prachär) from home to home; therefore Çré Nityänanda Prabhu is verily the Müla Mahäjan or the chief proprietor of the Näm Haööa located at Godruma. Even though all the employees of the Näm Haööa are qualified for performing äjïä-öahal, the 'Patrol According to the Lord's Order', still the great mahäçays, who are like patrolling watchmen, are especially empowered to render these duties in an entirely selfless manner. Above all the rest, Prabhu Nityänanda and patrolman Haridäs Öhäkura have each exhibited the glories of this post in their own unique ways. If one goes out on patrol with hopes of simply collecting milk and rice, then that is not the pure form of äjïä-öahal.

(çraddhävän jan he, çraddhävän jan he)

prabhur äjïäy, bhäi, mägi ei bhikñä

bolo 'kåñëa,' bhajo kåñëa, koro kåñëa-çikñä

O people of faith! O people of faith! By the order of Lord Gauräìga, O brothers, I beg these three requests of you: Chant "Kåñëa!", worship Kåñëa, and teach others about Kåñëa.

Purport by Bhaktivinoda Öhäkura

The mahäçay on patrol plays his karatäls and calls out, "O people of faith! I do not wish to beg from you any worldly thing or mundane favor. The only alms I beg is that all of you honor the order of the Lord by chanting the name of Kåñëa, worshiping Kåñëa, and teaching others about Kåñëa. Just invoke the true name of Kåñëa. Specifically, by giving up nämäbhäsa (a hint of the name due to offenses) please chant the purely spiritual (chinmoy) holy name of the Lord." There are two kinds of nämäbhäsa-chäyä-nämäbhäsa (shadow of the name) and pratibimba-nämäbhäsa (reflection of the name). The chäyä-nämäbhäsa naturally becomes the pure holy name that bestows all divine perfections, but in a gradual manner. This is because even though one may be situated in the darkness of ignorance, one is still not distracted by desires for bhoga (material sense gratification) and moksha (impersonal liberation), which are both unfavorable for executing devotional service. When devotees who are not knowledgeable in spiritual truth frst of all persist in trying to chant this kind of nämäbhäsa in the company of sädhus, by the power of that association they become learned in the mellows of näm-rasa and thus become capable of singing the çuddha-näm, the purely transcendental holy name of the Lord. Those devotees are also very fortunate.

For those who attempt chanting the holy name while still desirous of enjoying the fruits of either material endeavors or impersonal liberation, the holy name appears to them as the mere reflection known as pratibimba-nämäbhäsa. Such persons easily receive their insignificant cherished boons from the Lord's name, but they are unable to attain the çuddha-näm-chintämaëi-the touchstone of the pure holy name. This is because they are incapable of naturally renouncing their desires for things opposed to the execution of pure devotional service, specifically the things related to bhoga and moksha. In special circumstances, according to the arising of good fortune, one may reject desires for bhoga and moksha by the mercy of a devotee or the Lord directly, thus becoming of non-duplicious heart (akaitava hridoy), and in this way take full shelter of the pure holy name; but that is very rare.

O people of faith! To give up nämäbhäsa and sing the çuddha-näm is verily the only true welfare of the jévas. Please worship Lord Kåñëa by chanting and chanting Kåñëa-näma. Perform bhajan by engaging in çravaëa, kértana, smaraëa, sevana, archana, vandana, däsya, sakhya, and ätma-nivedana. Execute that bhajan either on the path of vidhi-märga or räga-märga, according to your specific adhikära. If your ruchi is for the vidhi-märga, then accept appropriate instructions for worship (bhajan-tattva) at the feet of Çré Guru, and upon the annihilation of all the anarthas that beset the jéva, please observe the person of Lord Kåñëa. Or, if you have the transcendental greed (lobha) for traversing the räga-märga, then emulate the love and character of an eternal vraja-väsé or vraja-väsiné, and according to that befitting ruchi just engage in the worship of the mellows of Vraja. Being absorbed in that vraja-rasa-bhajan, obtaining the mercy of a guru who is appropriately qualified in that transcendental realm, one thus gans eternal residence in Vraja by awakening their own spiritual form (chinmoy-svarüpa), and in that form they will achieve the ultimate beatitude of rendering sevä to Çré Kåñëa.

aparädha-çünya ho'ye loho kåñëa-näm

kåñëa mätä, kåñëa pitä, kåñëa dhana-präë

Being careful to remain free of offenses, just take the holy name of Lord Kåñëa. Kåñëa is your mother, Kåñëa is your father, and Kåñëa is the treasure of your life.

Purport by Bhaktivinoda Öhäkura

The word 'aparädha' indicates the ten offenses against chanting the holy names of the Lord, listed as follows:

(1) Envy of the Vaiñëavas and blasphemy of the Vaiñëavas. (2) Thinking that other demigods like Çiva are supreme controllers separate from Lord Kåñëa. It should be known that the various devatäs are the vibhütis or expanded energies of Lord Kåñëa; with this understanding, the fault of considering them to be different than Kåñëa, or thinking that there are numerous Supreme Lords, will cease. (3) Disregard for the spiritual master. There are two kinds of guru-the dékñä-guru and the çikñä-guru. One should have faith in the words of the guru, and one should consider him to be a specific manifestation of Kåñëa, or else Kåñëa's eternally dear, pure truth (nitya-preñöha çuddha-tattva). (4) Blasphemy of the revealed scriptures (çruti-çästra). The çruti-çästras comprise all the following: the Vedas; the Puräëas and dharma-çästras that supplement the Vedas; the Bhagavad-gétä-çästra, which is the embodiment of the Vedic siddhänta; the Brahma-sütra, which is the manifestation of the Vedic mémäàsä-darçana; the Çrémad-bhägvata, which is the purport (bhäshya) of the Brahma-sütra; the expansions of the Vedas such as the itihäsas (histories) and various sätvata-tantras (esoteric worship manuals in the mode of goodness); and finally, all the bhakti-çästras written by numerous mahäjans which represent extensive commentaries on all the above-mentioned scriptures. One must have particular faith in all these çästras. (5) Interpretation of the name of Hari; in other words, concluding that the glories of the holy name (näm-mähätmya) as recorded in the scriptures are merely exaggerated praises. (6) Conducting sinful activities on the strength of chanting the holy name. By chanting the holy name of the Lord with faith, one's previous sinful reactions are destroyed, and one has no taste to commit further sinful actions. But if one desires to commit sins with the hope that the holy name will afterwards eradicate them, then that is an offense. (7) When one wishes that the holy name will bestow rewards of bhoga or moksha, considering the nameto be equal to pious actions like dharma (religiosity), vrata (following vows), or tyäga (renunciation)-then he is an offender unto the holy name (nämäparädhé). (8) It is an offense to give the holy name to others who are faithless, and to those who are averse or disinclined to hear about it. Instructions on hari-näm should not be given to those whose faith will not be kindled; the glories of the holy name (näm-mähätmya) should be spoken only to those whose çraddhä may arise. (9) To not have full faith or taste even after hearing about the glories of the holy name. (10) It is an offense for persons who are full of a sense of false egotism and possessiveness (ahaàtä-mamatä) to engage in the practice of chanting hari-näm. When one considers the material body to be the self, and develops false vanity based on such a body, imagining material objects to be one's own property and thereby becoming attached to them, then such a person naturally commits hari-nämäparädha. This is because he is cheated from the knowledg that the sädhya (the goal) as well as the sädhana (the practice for reaching that goal) are both spiritual.

O people of faith! Remaining free of these ten offenses, just worship Lord Kåñëa. Only Kåñëa is the jéva's mother, father, offspring, wealth, husband, and life-treasure. The jéva is a spiritual ray (chit-kaëa), Kåñëa is the spiritual sun (chit-sürya), and the material world is the jéva's prison. Truly the pastimes of Kåñëa, which lie beyond the material realm, are your factual riches to be sought.

(4)

kåñëera saàsära koro chäòi' anäcär

jéve doyä, kåñëa-näm-sarva-dharma-sär

Giving up all sinful activities, carry on your worldly duties only in relation to Lord Kåñëa. The showing of compassion to other souls by loudly chanting the holy name of Kåñëa is the essence of all forms of religion.

Purport by Bhaktivinoda Öhäkura

O faithful jéva! You have turned away from Kåñëa and then suffered the experience of so-called happiness and distress in the realm of mäyika-saàsära. This situation is not befitting you. As long as you remain bound to the wheel of karma as a result of your faulty aversion to Kåñëa, please accept one transcendental remedy. If you are inclined toward the path of pravritti (positive use of material situations), then just become a grihastha, brahmachäré, or vänaprastha; or if you are inclined to the path of nivritti (renunciation of material situations), then just be a sannyäsé. But in whatever position you find yourself, please give up all anäcär (sinful activities), while offering your body, home, wife, children, and wealth unto Çré Kåñëa. Living in Kåñëa's world, perform all your actions by dovetailing your senses and mind with topics of Kåñëa, and with a heart purified of envious aversion pass the journey of life. The supreme nectar (paramämrita) of favorable service rendered unto Lord Kåñëa will gradually beome thickened until it breaks through your two bodies-the gross (sthüla) and the subtle (liìga)-and will finally cause your eternal spiritual form (apräkrita svarüpa) to again awaken.

All the following things come under the heading of unfavorable actions, performed either by oneself or by society: theft, speaking lies, cheating, hostility, lust, inflicting bodily harm, duplicious politics, and so forth. Abandoning all these, just resort to pious means and spend your life in Kåñëa's world. The ultimate statement is this-showing mercy to all living beings, living a pure lifestyle, just chant the holy name of Kåñëa. There is no difference whatsoever between Kåñëa-näm and Lord Kåñëa Himself. By the mercy of the holy name, Kåñëa in the form of His names, forms, attributes and pastimes (näm, rüpa, guëa, and lélä) will personally reveal Himself to the vision of the eyes of your siddha-svarüpa (spiritual body). Truly in a few days your chit-svarüpa will awaken and will remain floating in the ocean of eternally sweet Kåñëa-prema.

Bengali prose from the Third Chapter of Vaiñëava-Siddhänta-Mälä

Çré-Çré-Godruma-Candrer Äjïä

"The Divine Command of Çré Godruma-Candra"

apära-rasa-payonidhi akhila-rasämåta-mürti gauòa-jana-citta-cakora-sudhäkara çré-çré-çacé-nandana mahäprabhu

Çré Caitanya Mahäprabhu, who is an ocean of limitless transcendental rasa, who is the embodiment of all nectarean mellows, who is the ambrosia-producing moon attracting the chakora-bird minds of the Bengali devotees, who is the dear son of Mother Çacé... one day showed His mercy to all created beings by giving the following command to Çréman Nityänanda Prabhu and Çré Haridäsa Öhäkura. As recorded in the Çré Caitanya-Bhägavata, Madhya-Khaëòa (13.8-10):

çuno çuno nityänanda, çuno haridäs

sarvatra ämär äjïä koroho prakäç

prati ghare ghare giyä koro ei bhikñä

bolo 'kåñëa', bhajo kåñëa, koro kåñëa-çikñä

ihä bai är nä bolibä, boläibä

dina-avasäne äsi' ämäre kohibä

"Listen, listen, Nityänanda! Listen, Haridäsa! Make My command known everywhere! Go from house to house and beg from all the residents, 'Please chant Kåñëa's name, worship Kåñëa, and teach others to follow Kåñëa's instructions.' Do not speak, or cause anyone to speak, anything other than this."

In order to carry out this command, Prabhu Nityänanda and Öhäkura Haridäsa took the help of other devotees and went from house to house preaching the glories of the holy name. In the series of statements-bolo 'kåñëa', bhajo kåñëa, koro kåñëa-çikñä-there are three different commands evident. The meaning of the command bolo kåñëa is: "He jéva! Always chant the name of Kåñëa." The meaning of bhajo kåñëa is: "He jéva! Cause the flower of the holy name to blossom into the expanding petals of Kåñëa's rüpa, guëa, and lélä, and thus enjoy that flower-like näm." The meaning of the command koro kåñëa-çikñä is: "He Kåñëa-bhaktas! Become endowed with the knowledge of sambandha-abhidheya-prayojana, and relish the supreme rasa which is the honey-nectar of that name-flower." In this chapter, we will give an explanation, to some extent, of the first command. Later in other chapters I will endeavor to give specific explanations of the second and third commands.

Mahäprabhu's order is simply this-that everyone should incessantly chant harinäm. Incessantly chant harinäm-the meaning of this command is not that people should always chant the holy name while completely desisting from all bodily activities, household duties, and dealings with others. By ceasing all actions of bodily maintenance, the body will be destroyed in a short while. In the context of this command, then, how should one engage in harinäm? Since the Lord gave humanity the command to incessantly take the holy name, then the true meaning is that everyone, whether grihastha or sannyäsé, vänaprastha or brahmachäré, brähmaëa or kshatriya, vaiçya or çüdra, low-born or mleccha, and so forth-all people should remain in their respective situations and chant harinäm. Verily this is the only meaning. It is necessary to nicely remain in one's own natural situation because that position facilitates the proper performance of one's activities for bodily maintenance, and thus the body will not expire untimely. Bodily aintenance requires dealing with others. It is essential that all such actions be observed in a pure and undisturbed fashion. Then all of these things will be conducted very nicely. When Çré Nityänanda Prabhu was preaching the first command of Çréman Mahäprabhu, He spoke in the following manner:

kohena prabhur äjïä òäkiyä òäkiyä

"bolo 'kåñëa', bhajo kåñëa, loho kåñëa näm

kåñëa mätä, kåñëa pitä, kåñëa dhana-präë

tomä sabä lägiyä kåñëer avatär

heno kåñëa bhaja, saba chäòo anäcär"

Nityänanda and Haridäsa repeated the Lord's command by calling out to everyone, "Chant Kåñëa, worship Kåñëa, and accept Kåñëa's holy name from others. Kåñëa is your mother, Kåñëa is your father, and Kåñëa is the treasure of your life-breath. Kåñëa has incarnated just for your benefit, so please worship this merciful Kåñëa and give up all sinful activities."

(Çré Caitanya Bhägavata, Madhya 13.82-84)

After receiving the command to preach the holy name (näm-prachär), Prabhu Nityänanda and Öhäkura Haridäsa went from village to village, house to house, and began proclaiming, "He jéva! Lord Kåñëa is verily the life of your life, and Lord Kåñëa's name is verily the treasure of your life. All of you please deliberate incessantly on that holy name. Living thus absorbed, the only other thing of concern is to see that no sinful behavior contaminates your actions of bodily or household maintenance." The meaning of the word anäcär is asadäcär, or activities of impious nature. There are many different types of sinful behavior that are classified as asadäcär or anäcär, such as: speaking lies, thievery, wantonness, doing harm to others, killing any living being, disrespect for superiors, and so forth. Çré Nityänanda Prabhu has personally explained the meaning of the word anäcär as follows (Çré Caitanya Bhägavata, Antya-Khaëòa 5.685-686):


çuno dvija, jateka pätaka kaili tui

är jadi nä koris, saba nimu mui

para-hiàsä, òäkä-curi, saba anäcär

chäòo giyä ihä tumi, nä koriho är


"Listen, O brähmaëa! You have performed many sinful actions. If you abstain from committing these any further, then I forgive them. Doing harm to others, committing theft-all these things constitute sinful behavior. Now give up such actions, and do them no more."

While repeating the command to engage in chanting harinäm, Lord Nityänanda gives negative advice regarding abstention from anäcär or impious activities; the counterpart of this is to give instructions on chanting harinäm while offering positive advice for performing sadäcär or pious activities (5.687-688):


dharma pathe giyä tumi loho harinäm

tabe tumi anyere koribä pariträë

jata saba dasyu cora òäkiyä äniyä

dharma-pathe sabäre laoyäo tumi giyä


"Embarking upon the path of dharma, chant the holy name of Lord Hari. Then you will also deliver others. Now please go and call as many thieves and criminals that you can; gathering them together, cause them to similarly adhere to the path of dharma."

Nityänanda Prabhu said, "He vipra! Just give up the path of irreligiosity (adharma) once and for all. Do not perform any further sinful actions. However, by renouncing adharma alone you should not live carelessly, but rather make a positive endeavor to accept the path of dharma." The principles of dharma are described in the Çrémad-Bhägavatam as follows (7.11.8-12):


satyaà dayä tapaù çaucaà titikñekñä çamo damaù

ahiàsä brahmacaryaï ca tyägaù svädhyäya ärjjavam

santoñaù samadåk-sevä grämyehoparamaù çanaiù

nåëäà viparyayehekñä maunam ätma-vimarçanam

annädyädeù saàvibhägo bhütebhyaç ca yathärhataù

teñv ätma-devatä-buddhiù sutaräà nåñu päëòava

çravaëaà kértanaï cäsya smaraëaà mahatäà gateù

sevejyävanatir däsyaà sakhyam ätma-samarpaëam

nåëäm ayaà paro dharmaù sarveñäà samudähåtaù

triàçal-lakñaëavän räjan sarvätmä yena tuñyati


Närada said, "He Yudhiñöhira! The following thirty types of religious duties should be performed by those who have obtained the human form of life: truthfulness (satya), compassion (dayä), exertion in pious austerities (tapa), cleanliness (çauca), tolerance (titikñä), seeing [discernment of what is proper or improper] (ékñä), mental restraint (çama), sense control (dama), non-violence (ahiàsä), celibacy (brahmacarya), renunciation [giving in charity] (tyäga), study of the Vedas (svädhyäya), simplicity (ärjava), satisfaction (santoña), service of saintly persons who have equal vision (sama-dåk-sevä), gradual detachment from worldly household life (grämyehoparama çanaiù), deliberation on the degradation of fallen worldly souls (nåëäà viparyayehekñä), abstinence of useless topics of conversation (mauna), searching for the true self as different from the material body (ätma-vimarçana), distribution of grains and other foodstuffs to appropriate recipients (annädyädeù saàvibhägo bhütebhyaç ca yathärhataù), seeing al living beings in relationship to Kåñëa, and especially those in the human form (teñv ätma-devatä-buddhiù sutaräm nåñu), hearing topics of Lord Hari (çravaëa), chanting His glories (kértana), remembrance (smaraëa), rendering service (sevä), offering worship (püjä), offering prayers (vandana), becoming a servant (däsya), becoming His friend (sakhya), and offering unto Him the totality of one's very being (ätma-samarpaëa). O King, these qualifications must be acquired by human beings, for this satisfies the Supreme Lord, the Supersoul of all."

O brothers! For the purpose of passing your lives nicely, please desire to engage in these activities that constitute the principles of dharma. Just behave honestly in this way, and incessantly remain absorbed in harinäm-this is my only advice to you.
