Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura was the spiritual master of Srila Prabhupada. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura powerfully spread the teachings of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu in the early twentieth century.
“In this age of quarrel and hypocrisy the only means of deliverance is chanting the holy name of the Lord. There is no other way. There is no other way. There is no other way.”
All the devotees of ISKCON Pune are getting the golden opportunity to have the association of HG Madhava Prabhu, who was personally trained by Sripad Aindra Prabhu and is a leading kirtaniya in ISKCON.
He will be leading kirtan at NVCC temple hall along with his team of devotees on 12th Feb evening 4:30 pm onwards. All devotees are eagerly waiting for this auspicious moment, so please join us in large numbers.
Narottama Dasa Thakura was a leading acarya in the Gaudiya Vaisnava line. He was the only disciple of Srila Lokanatha Gosvami. Srila Narottama Dasa Thakura helped bring the books of the Gosvamis from Vrndavana to Bengal and Orissa.
24 Hour Kirtan Mandal is dedicated to the propagation of hari-nama-sankirtan (the loud congregational chanting of the Holy Names of God). It is unequivocally affirmed in all authoritative scriptures that in Kali-yuga, this present age of quarrel and strife, the only viable method of attaining complete self-purification, self-realization, and self-satisfaction is nama-sankirtan. Nama-sankirtan is the highest practice of and, as well, the perfection of yoga, meditation, and personal sacrifice. It is the highest expression of love for all living beings and the best course for attaining the highest plane of love of Godhead (vraja-prema).
Material well-being follows spiritual well-being. Experienced transcendentalist glowingly confirm this simple truth. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu has therefore emphatically stressed the selfless propagation of nama-sankirtan for the all-round perfection of human civilization.
To this end, members of the 24 Hour Kirtan Mandali continuously perform hari-nama-sankirtan by loudly singing the matchless Hare Krishna maha-mantra. Anyone wishing to advantage kali-yuga-dharma hari-nama-sankirtana at Sri Vrndavana Dhama, is cordially invited to cooperate with us and assist in this effort to please His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada and all the acaryas in disciplic succession from Lord Gauranga. Your association would be appreciated in terms of our mutual spiritual benefit.
