Uddhav Sambad

Uddhav -Krishna (Pic credited to Pinterest)
       Bhagwan (Lord) Sri Krishna left Vrindavan to Mathura to kill Asur raj Mama Kangsa. At that time He was 10 years 08 months old and killed Maharaj Kangsa. It was a long time after left Vrindaban, one day He sat on a stair with His elder brother Balaram and saw a calf was drinking his mother's milk. As soon as He saw, Vrindaban remembered in His mind. Mother Yasodha, Father Nanda, Cow-Shephard friends, Gopi (Lovers), Radha Rani. Tears continued from His eyes. Brother Balaram understood the matter. Mother Devki also watched it. 
       The very next day, Mother Devki prepared various sweets made from cow-milk and served to Sri Krishna, as She thought She may not give Khir, Sar, Nani (butter) like Yashoda. But it did not gain much. The condition of God remained unchanged. Then Balaram told to Krishna, "Kanha, why you would not send someone to Vrindaban for getting the news how are they now?" As soon as heard, Lord replied yes this is absolutely right. But whom to sent? I cannot send anyone to Brajabhumi (Vrindaban), except a special one. After much thought, Uddhav was suitable for this work.
Sri Krishna went to Uddhav 
      Uddhav, cousin of Lord Krishna on one side and a perfect friend on another side. Uddhav was very knowledgeable and had his arrogance for it, cause Lord Krishna was his friend and was wise himself also. He used to worship Krishna every morning and visit God. But in that morning when God Sri Krishna himself stood behind Uddhav at the time of worship, Udhhav could not visit God even after many tries. But as soon as when he turned and saw God himself stood, then he understood why he was not able to visit? 
          On the other hand, Lord Krishna was want to destroy the arrogance of Uddhav and was want to prove that there was no position of knowledge/wise in front of devotion and love. So Sri Krishna told to Uddhav about Vrindaban yatra and collect the latest position of His nearer Brajabasi. 
Vrindaban Leela, Pic credited to
       When Uddhav agreed to go to Vrindaban, Lord Krishna arranged himself in his own hands. His dress (yellow and green), the Nupur (leggy) of his feet, is as perfect as Krishna himself going to Vrindavan. One thing just taught him not to make mistakes to tell that Krishna did not come or would not come (otherwise they may die to hear that). Just say Krishna sent him to take news "how are they?" Uddhav Maharaj also interested why Vrindaban is great to Lord Krishna? So Uddhav was ready to go.
[Without saying a word here, Krishna himself could not go to Vrindavan because of the 100-years separation of Radha Krishna due to Sridam's (Krishna's friend) curse.]
Uddhav Visit Vrindaban
       In the beginning, I want to say, I do not have the courage to describe the state of mind of Vrindavan residents like Nanda Father, Yashoda Mother, Gop-Gopi, Friends, etc. Not so much as explaining, the grace of the Guru, just try to tell something. 
     Lord Shri Krishna, in his robe, sat in his own chariot and sent Uddhav to Vrindavan. Seeing Uddhav was almost exactly like Sri Krishna & all will be astray. Just Uddhav stepped at Vrindaban, found that the fishes were jumping from the Jamuna river and were dying to escape. The inquiry came to mind. The answer he came to know that the fishes can no longer see Krishna, but this is the land where Krishna's leg-dust is mixed, so lay down and die forever. Tears came in the eyes of Uddhav.
       Then on the way, he was listening of two birds Sukh and Sari, sitting on a tree trunk. Ever since Krishna has gone, the birds had been sitting with two eyes closed. Hearing the sound of Krishna's leggy, Sukh said that Sari, feels that Krishna has come! The sound of his leggy is heard. Let's open our eyes. In reply, Sari said, "You have heard the sound of Krishna's leggy, but that foot is not my Krishna's foot." So I won't open my eyes. Uddhav astonished with Krishna's love for the birds of Vrindavan.
      Then he reached Nandagaon. Seeing Krishna's love for birds and fishes, Uddhav could not understand how he would face before his father Nanda  & mother Yashoda. Anyhow, he met with courage father Nanda. As just see him Nanda Maharaj started crying as remembered Krishna. "How did he forget? Uddhav". Then started all about Krishna's childhood activities & there was no end to say, Uddhav watched. 
      Uddhav thought If I can explain who is Krishna, then maybe the pain will be less of father Nanda. So He started to explain that Krishna is the father of the world, God Narayan himself. You and Mother Yashoda are lucky to have Krishna as a child and so on ....... Maharaj Nanda heard it minutely & laughed. Uddhav, I knew you are wise and scholar, but now understand you are not what I thought, and also a childish mind. If you say Losing him there were no unfortunate like ours, so we could understand you feel something our grief.
     Uddhav you compare Krishna with God Narayan, absolutely foolish. Narayana is the cause of the whole world, and Krishna is a small milky infant. Narayan is pure, innocent, saintly virtue and Krishna is a thief, liar, arrogant. We bow to Narayan, and Krishna walks behind me in my shoe. You're trying to extinguish my fire (mind) with ghee (clarified butter). Meanwhile, mother Yashoda was likely dead (after Sri Krishna left Vrindaban), listening to conversations from the adjoining house. Krishna's name was heard only, from that dilapidated body, with tears streaming down her eyes and milk from her breasts. Sri Krishna was 11 yrs old then. So it is possible for this cosmic world.
    When Lord Krishna went to Mathura, the Gopis are upset! Srikrishna, knew their condition, sent Uddhav, who was wise! Uddhav could not understand the feeling of Vrindaban's crying, feeding, wearing, etc. The pure love of the Gopis was seen as miserable and small. He will also learn from hearing about it. The fears went on to explain to the Gopis: 'Why are you all called Krishna, Krishna? Know that He is God & stay everywhere. He is in Mathura and not in Vrindavan, it cannot be. Without hesitating, once I look at the eyes, I will see that the evergreen Krishna is always in your heart '- and so on. The Gopis replied, 'Uddhav, you are a friend of Krishna, wise, what are you talking about! Do we find him meditating, not knowing, or chanting like sage-muni? Will we do all those things that we have arranged to meet, lost, eat, cloth, meditate on? Can we do that anymore? The mind with which I meditate, if we have the mind, we will do so with it! That mind has been in the lotus-foot of Krishna for a long time! Do we have anything else to say so that we can ego and chant? ' The surprise of hearing! Then Uddhav realized that the Gopis' love for Krishna is deep and understand the matter, he went to worship as his Guru! In fact, Krishna's love of the Gopis, without any reason, could not understand Uddhav.
       Sorry, I can't explain more....please excuse. Because it's not possible for me to explain the feelings of Gopi and Srimati Radha Rani. Just to conclude by saying that when Uddhav returned from Vrindavan, he had no ego of knowledge/wise & hoped that he could be born in Vrindavan as a tree, climber or grass in the next re-birth. Because leaves, trees, grasses of Vrindavan, they also say about Krishna.

Hare Krishna ......

Cause of Srimati Radha Rani's Anger (Manbhanjan)?

 Srimati Radha Rani's anger broken in short
             One day Radha was bathing in the Jamuna with Her Sakhi. At that time, Sree Krishna played the flute, pointing out that Lord Krishna would come to Radha Rani's Kunja (Flower house) at night. Radha Rani, along with Her Sakhis, became restless with joy. All Sakhis decorated the Kunja (Flower house) with various flowers all day long as their beloved would come in the night.
           Meanwhile, passed half of the night came to dawn, but Krishna did not come, Radharani became impatient. Srimati ordered to Vrinda to bring about the news of Krishna. Shortly afterward, Vrindadevi reported that Krishna was in the Kunja (Flower house) of Chandrabali all night, how He comes here? Upon hearing this, Srimati became upset but did not angry. Just before sunrise, Shri Krishna appeared in the Kunja of Srimati Radha Rani in the wake of not being able to sleep. Radharani gets angry when She saw Krishna & She did not want to place Shri Krishna in Her Kunja in any way. During this time, Shri Krishna became desperate to break Radharani's anger. At last, Krishna broke Her anger by apologizing to catch the Radharani's Lotus feet.

Cause of Srimati Radha Rani's Anger
             In general, we think that Radha was angry because Krishna had gone to Chandrabali's Kunja. But Radha Rani knew well that Sree Krishna is the Husband of everyone (Jagatswami) & everyone has the right to receive Him. When everyone had received Him at Rasleela, Radha was not angry ever. So why Radha Rani got angry this time?
                 When Krishna stood up, Radha Rani saw the mark on Krishna's body. Chandravalli hits Her nails on his body of Sree Krishna when she was mad at the time of Milan (sex urge). We keep our Krishna as a flower when He walks, we will allow him to get our chest so that the His foot does not hurt, that Krishna hit by Chandraboli. One who does not know the Krishna Seva, why did Krishna go to her? This is the main reason of Radha Rani's anger. Therefore, it is not possible to get Lord Krishna without Radharani's permission because She alone knows how to serve Krishna.

Relations With God - Judgement

                Several questions have been raised in mind, so writing, kindly do not take offense. This is my heartiest request to all Vaishnavs. All those who met Brajendranandan Krishna took their own path of relations (any-one). We get there are five emotions. If the relationship is not established with Him, He is unavailable for us. Five emotions are -

  1. Santa (Calm or Quiet), 
  2. Dasya (Maid or Servant), 
  3. Sakhya (Friendship), 
  4. Batsalya (Love of Parental/guardians), 
  5. Madhur (Love, affection of Lover)

1. Santa (Calm)

               Who received Krishna in the knowledge of the Supreme (Paramatma). However, this feeling blends in with the rest four emotions else. If this feeling is absent, the mind is not calm and Lord is unavailable. Sanak, Sananda, Sanatan, Sanatkumar, Garg, and other sages got Sree Krishna this way.
2. Dasya (Maid/Servant)
          Those who call themselves as Krishna's servants. Most devotees are taking this path/emotion. It is also the easiest way/emotion for humans. Veer Hanuman is the extreme among all of Maid devotees.
3. Sakhya (Friend)
               Those who think of themselves as equal to Krishna. Sridam, Sudam, Basudam, Sudama, Subal, Bhim, Arjun - all make relation with God as a friend. If Krishna lost in playing on the field of Brajabhumi, they (shepherds) would rise on Krishna's shoulders. Rise on Shoulders are far away, can human-devotees think about it for them as shepherds?
4. Batsalya (Guardians' Love)
         Those who are thought the elders/guardians of God. They rule over God even sometimes beating and are worshiped by God. Mother Yashoda, Father Nanda, Mother Devki, Father Basudev are such examples. However, many people today have arranged Gopal Seva in their homes. This feeling is good and also this emotion is possible to some extent for humans.
           Here is a question. Which parents bow to their child after serving food to them? Almost every time, witnessing, guardians bow down and worshiped Gopal. What do the Guardians' emotions think of it? Slavery emotion enters into relation. It doesn't seem to have the right relationship. It's come to hear from my Guru, a mother might be baking bread in Vrindavan, who is giving his son bread and then giving the same to Krishna called Lalla! 'take it', just as she gave his son. Although Krishna is nowhere to be seen. There was no practice of worship, bowing or nothing else. This is pure love & affection for Guardians. 
5. Madhur (Lovers' Attachment)
             It is the best in all emotions. In this way, Sree Krishna is not worshiped, He remains as a lover. It's almost rare for humans. If anyone does not understand the path, no edges or targets are seen to him. All emotions are present in it. Srimati Radha Rani, Lalita, Bishaka, Brinda, Dyuti Sakhigans, Mirabai, Chandraboli etc - such are examples for this such emotion or relation.
Few Devotees Among Billions
              Suppose somewhere there is Chanting of God, Sankirtan or Bhagwat lessons are going on, it is seen that some people drive by the side, pass on a motorcycle or bicycle, the name of the Lord does not enter his ears, it seems as nothing is happening there. Some people stand up and greet from a distance with one hand, do not come near. Some people come forward, bow with their hands, but do not sit. Some of them else come up, sitting and bowing, but not listening to Kirtan or Bhagavat, thinking of themselves, discussing other things with the person next to them. Again there are few peoples who come, sit, bowing & listen to the kirtan and tears comes to the eyes with the name of Sree Krishna.
                   The number of genuine devotees a few in the billions. Generally, those who do not stand, or by-passes, the name of God does not enter their ears, or who stand at a distance and bow with one hand, are guilty, according to Vaishnavism. But in fact, God has closed their ears, they have not had the right time, so the name of God does not enter their ears. But sitting down to read Bhagwat, speaking less about God, the reader more and more are talking about such people. Has Lord given us the right to judge? There are few devotees among the billion of people who are associated with God with some kind of relationship or emotion.

Eternal (Anadi) and Original (Adi)

ঈশ্বর: পরম: কৃষ্ণ: সচ্চিদানন্দবিগ্রহঃ। 
অনাদিরাদি গোবিন্দ: সর্বকারণ-কারনম ।।
( Iswar: Param: Krishna: Sachchidananda Bigrah:
Anandiradi Gobinda: Sarbakaran-Karanam )
-- Brahmasamhita
              Lord Krishna is the Supreme God, His statute represents Omnipresence, knowledgable, joyful. He is the main reason for all the reasons in this universe - I found this many places or some devotees discuss in their articles. But the meaning of the word 'Anandiradi' ( অনাদিরাদি ), still not clear to me or is not addressed briefly.
         Let's try to understand, the word Adi (আদি) means The Original i.e., have an origin and the word Anadi অনাদি ) means which have No Origin or it's Eternal. Now If Anadi means infinite, eternal, have no origin, no limit, then how can be the word Anadiradi interpreted i.e., what is before infinite or what is before eternal be meant?
            Many things are interpreted or clarified in ambiguous terms in our Scriptures or in our holy books. It is sometimes listening (like Shruti) from a real Spiritual Guru (Master) or a Great Person or from a real Saint, which has no proof but can be felt.
           ভগবানের যত খেলা, সর্বোত্তম নরলীলা
(Bhagabaner Joto Khela, Sarbottama Nara Leela)

            -- means as much as the Leela of God, the best is Human's Leela. Whatever in the universe, the same as in human beings. So He comes in the form of a humanly, again and again, the best creature he has made. Again --

আজ অবধি সেই লীলা করে গৌড় রায় 
কোনো কোনো ভাগ্যবানে বুঝিবারে পায়। 
(Aaj Obodhi sei Leela Kore Gour Ray,
Kono Kono Bhagyabane Bujhibare Pai)

               -- means until today, Leela made by Gaur Sundar, Some lucky personalities may be understood or can be realized. Lord Krishna Ekam O Adwityam! -- Sree Krishna is unique in this universe. He presents in all creatures. 
                 Anadi means who have no origin. Now, who are we? From where we came and where to go? Anyone can tell? Are we not infinite? Only if we are identified as an Anadi then the word Anadiradi means Lord Govinda or Sree Krishna Himself. Because we all created from Him. Again in the other sense, if we are addressed as Anadi, then our parents are Anadiradi & in this way, they are our real God.

Provas Yagna | প্রভাস যজ্ঞ Part-III

Part - III

Narad Went to Basudev for giving the intelligence of Provas Yagna 
            After taking goodbye from Sree Krishna Debarshi Narad sharply went to Father Basudev for giving him the intelligence of Provas Yagna (to couple Radha-Krishna again). Basudev gave respect in devotion and also gave him a seat. After that Narad started to talk about the various activities of religious work and also stated that among them, Donate Yagna (Dan Yagna) is great & best. Donate Yagna is also greater than Ashwamedh and Rajsuya Yagna. When Basudev wants to know about the details of Donate Yagna, Narad started to say that after gathering (storage) all the donated materials and all the items dedicated to God by reading Veda Mantra and then distribute. All of the Universe (God, Goddess, human beings, birds, animals, Kinnar, Saints, etc)  should be invited & gave them food with respect & care. Those who have sons like Sree Krishna and Balaram, what does he lack? Call on your sons & complete the Donate Yagna, save your great virtue for the future, which never comes again in your life. But Yagna should be complete in shrine place and in Solar eclipse. Listening from Narad, Basudev quickly sends the messenger to Sree Krishna and Balaram. 
               As ordered by Basudev, the messenger called on Ram-Krishna. Two brothers sharply came and bow their father Basudev. Then Basudev said, "Sons, I have a wish to finish the most virtue of Donate Yagna" but I don't know how? Need so much wealth, how to organize such a big deal? Then Lord Krishna and Lord Balaram gave assure his father, to fulfill his wish.
Remembering Vishwakarma and Ordered For the Construction of a Palace-Cum-City at Provas
            No late, Lord remembered Viswakarma and God Viswakarma himself present at Dwarakapuri as sharp. Hey Viswakarma! at Provas, on the bank of holy river Saraswati, there build a palace-cum-city with gold, ruby, emerald, gems, and also four main Doors in four sides in that city. There are should be countless homes upstairs with rows of rows. Everyone will come from Tribhuvan (heaven, earth, hell), everyone should get a place to stay. In the middle of the city, there will be a place of Yagna, as seen everywhere.
         There should be also wilderness (garden) the same as Vrindaban outside the city which will be different kinds of flowers & sweet fruit trees, shrubbery. Lord Viswakarma made it as the direction of Sree Krishna, himself astonished to view of Provas. Am I so lucky?  Here I will see the Radhakrishna couple. Thinking his eyes were watering. After finished his work, he went to Dwaraka and told to Sree Krishna. 
               Lord Giridhari came to visit Provas sharp and thanks to Viswakarma. As soon Lord saw the wilderness (garden), remembered the Vrindaban, weeping in mind but no sign in outside His face. Then He came back to Dwaraka and called all of His relatives & declared about Provas Yagna.
Lord Narayan was busy for Invitation                 
              Lord called Yadugan (his relatives), at Solar eclipse, father Basudev wished to complete Donate Yagna for that you all quickly start your work at Provas. God Narayan also told to His elder brother Balaram, "Dada! please be ready for Provas Yagna". Then He remembered Debarshi Narad. Narad came without late & said, "Lord I know You will give me the responsibility of inviting the Tribhuban (heaven, earth, hell)". Lord gently smiled and said, "Who can turn the universe so quickly without you? You know it all, Narad". No late please ready to go to finish your responsibility but never go to Vrindaban. Otherwise, it will the opposite reaction. Not understanding Krishna's feelings, Narad left for his duties.
               Later, Lord Narayan went to the inner house of Devi Rukmini and called all of his marriage partners including Devi Satyabhama and told all about the Provas Yagna. Everyone was happy and ready to go to Provas except Goddess Rukmini. Devi called Him (Lord) in a secret, silent and isolated place & asked Sree Krishna, Hey Lord! after Narad's coming, why You so hurry about Provas Yagna? Why are You so interested to go to Provas left Dwaraka? I can't understand your feelings & also who can? But my mind says something different. Hey Govind! everyone will come, Your nearest dearest Brajabasi, mother, father and of course Your's Radha Rani. I know Just seeing them, you can no longer be held.  How much make noise for you there. This is not an auspicious Yagna for us. Normally all are saying Radha-Krishna, who says Rukmini-Krishna? After You meet Your Lover Radha, You will never see back me again. Hearing the delusion of Devi Rukmini, Narayan replied Hey Devi! You know all are say Laxmi-Narayan like as Radha-Krishna. You are also my lover Laxmi, never go anywhere left You. So stop crying and ready for Yagna. Because without you, I can't fulfill as You are the Goddess of wealth. Also You and Goddess Annapurna, both of You will take on the responsibility of cooking together so that no one will in hunger and never a shortage of wealth. Hearing Prabhu's word, Devi Rukmini was happy, bowed to the lotus feet of Sree Narayan and She also ready to go to Provas from Her mind.
Presence of Vrindaban's Residents (Brajabasi)                                     
             The market and the presence of all were not as described. Who were not there? What else could not be found? Like a puzzle in the eyes. After completing the invitation, Narad thought in mind what would be done now? Prabhu Sree Hari ordered me to invite all except for the residents of Vrindaban. Can't realize the cause. But I already assured them (Part-I). Narad thought, whatever happens, I will invite the Brajabasi, strong in mind to couple them again. But for shame, he could not get into Vrindavan. What would he say? To think about this Debarshi at night, entered the Maa Kali Mandir which was outside the Vrindaban. That Devi Maa Kali was called Goddess Pournamasi
             On that night Mother  Pournamasi worshiped and praised by Narad. Mother was pleased and wanted to fulfill his wish. Hey Mother! There is nothing impossible you can do. Kindly coupled Radha-Krishna again, I already assured Srimati Radha Rani, and this is my only wish. Of course, I will complete that auspicious work. I will also go with as Radha's Sakhi (partner), I will also want to look at Radhakrishna's twin and substantial of my eyes. You go to Provas calmly.
             Very next day morning, Devi Pournamasi went to Vrindaban and called Brinda Devi (Sakhi of Radha Rani) and told all happened already last night. Hey Brinda! holy time come at last, Sree Krishna arranged a Yagna at Provas for the purpose of coupled with Radha Rani again. Go fast and tell them all including Nandaraj & Srimati Yashoda. I also will go with you.           
          Just hearing about Yagna, will be done by Sree Krishna Himself, everyone in Vrindavan (Father, Mother, Gopis, Sakhis, Shepherds, animals, Birds, etc) was ready to come to the Provas. It was a wonder! as soon as heard, they willingly ready to come, they had no ego whether they were invited or not, nothing was interrupted matters between them and their Krishna or Gopal. 
           Indweller Radha Rani knew it all. For the last time, She cooked in her own hand and served to Ayan Ghosh, and said that as long as he lives, he will not be hungry. She already showed Her own form to Ayan Ghosh & also knew it's time to finish Her Leela. 
Brajabasi Reached at Provas
               Arranged troops around, guarding at the four gates like Yamraj Himself stood there, forbidding its entry for someone. Life trembles with fear. Most ordinary residents of Vrindaban were shocked to see this. How they met with their Krishna? At the South door, stood there Nandaraj and Mother Yashoda with their families; Srimati Radha Rani with Her Sakhis stood at the North door, Shepherd boys were at East door and rest of Brajabasis were at West door. 
Balaram in anger
                On the other side, to seat on the Yagna, Balaram witnessed everyone except Vrindaban's residents. Then He asked Narad, why the residents of Braja not coming there? Whether you forget to invite them or what? Debarshi replied, as ordered by Narayan, he invited all of the Universe except Vrindaban. In anger, Balaram left the Yagna place and lay-down on the floor of His room. After hearing all the matters, father Basudev asked Krishna, 'why do such that?' In response Lord said, the invitation is for the other persons, not for his own. Don't worry, sure, they will come. This is the matter of how nearest they are? Then elder brother Balaram understood something behind that.
         Meanwhile, as the guards stopped at their doors, the residents of Braja was crying for not letting them in. When Yashoda told the guards, 'your king Krishna is my son', they laughed and thought her a crazy woman. The Guard also responded that 'wait here gave you food and wealth when the Yagna is over'. In fact, Jashoda's torn clothing, random hair, looked like madness. 
                     Seeing no way, with great difficulty, Yashoda started calling loudly Gopal. Once you see your grieving mother, son. When only the word reached the ear, then who kept Sree Krishna? He just started ran with empty feet like crazy. But again stopped. Not in such clothes of King. Tears continued from his eyes. But who dressed me now as my mother? Narad realized and agreed, "I will sort You like Yashoda Ma". That's shepherd boy's dressed, flute in hand, peacock feather in His head, Oh! What a magnificent form, that no one has ever seen in Dwaraka and Mathura. Unseen to everyone, He ran to the four gates  (north, south, east, west) together at a time. This is His magical illusion.
Meet Yashoda and Compare with Mother Devki
Mother Devi and Mother Yashoda
             Seeing Krishna's crazy state, everyone (God, Goddess, Saint, everyone) running behind Him. The Lord went straight up and fell at the foot of mother Jashoda. He bowed father Nanda. Then he got up straight to Yashoda and tried to breastfeed just like a baby does at the time of hunger. Everyone surprised to see all of this. What type of love? Then Yashoda asked Krishna in a huff, what You said? I am not your mother, your mother is Devki. Look at me Gopal and tell the truth. In the meantime, Mother Devki came and asked then who I am? Am I not the mother of Krishna? Yashoda replied, Ok then start to prove whether you are or I am a mother of Krishna? 
                  My son Krishna stands between us at a distance of 100 yards each, then we started to give Him our breastfeed. Devki, you start first. But Mother Devki failed, as She never breastfeeds to Sree Krishna where Mother Yashoda passed in Her old age also. God was proving why Vrindavan's love is different from others.
Radha Rani finished Her Leela at Provas
                 On the other side, Satyabhama and Rukmini wanted to visit Radha Rani, why their Lover so attracted by Her, who is now at wilderness (garden) at Provas. They requested to Lord, we want to see that most floozy Gopi, if She gets angry, you hold on to Her feet and apologize, your soul, the outstanding silver in the Universe, your Radha Rani. As so much request, lastly, Sree Krishna agreed, tomorrow night You both meet with her. But I think you couldn't see Her with your eyes. The very next day Lord told to Lalita Sakhi, about the conversion of Rukmini and Satyabhama with Him. Lalita reached Radha Rani & responded Radhe! how You faced both of them, as they are the queens and so pretty. Once a time Your form was also most glorious & beautiful, but now with this dirty dress, rough hairs, like a most ordinary. Radha Rani gently smiled and replied, Lalita! they never see me in their skinned eyes and also known for you they all belong from my power, as a part of mine. You don't worry about that. 
          Next night, Devi Rukmini and Devi Satyabhama came with Sree Krishna at the Garden to watch. Radha Rani also came but with the power of light (like thousand of Suns and moons lightening together), stood left-side of Sree Krishna, then by attraction She moved to Golakdham with Her Lord, which was unseen to all present there. A few times later, there came eight Sakhis. Devi Rukmini and Satyabhama were speechless to see their forms, their glamours and questioned which was Your's Radha? Narayan Smiled and answered, here all Her servants, Sakhis, She came already and gone forever to Golakdham. Couldn't You find Her? Devi Satyabhama replied I realized something but nothing special. Devi Rukmini said, Seeing the form of Her maids, I also want to be Her maid only.

Hare Krishna ... Sixteen Names Thirty-two Words

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna 
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare 
Hare Rama Hare Rama 
Rama Rama Hare Hare

           Whenever we call somebody, we call his name, otherwise, no one will understand. That is, the person we call in the name has. This is my hands, my legs, my eyes, my hair, etc...... but where I am? & who I am? - no one can tell. We can't find ourselves until someone call us by our names. So that everyone has a name. Similarly, if we do not call God (Lord) in His name correctly of course in devotion, how will he understand? This is in the name Hare Krishna - He belongs or He has ever. 
History of Maha Mantra
            The Hare Krishna mantra (Maha-Mantra) is a Vaishnava mantra of 16 names 32 words described in the Koli-Santaran Upanishad (কলি সন্তরণ উপনিষদ), and which becomes important in the movement of devotion through the teaching of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (roughly around 1500 C.E.). The creator of this Mantra was Raghunath Bhattacharya (Bhatta), who is one of the six Goswamis. The Mantra is composed of the three Sanskrit names of the Supreme Being; "Hare," "Krishna," and "Ram". According to Gaudiya Vaishnava theology, one's basic consciousness and life's goal is pure love for God (Sree Krishna). Though Mahaprabhu always used to name -- 
Krishna Keshav Krishna Keshav Krishna Keshav Pahi Maam
Ram Raghav Ram Raghav Ram Raghav Raksha Maam.
Srila Prabhupada, Germany 1974
           After Mahaprabhu's disappearance, the Mantra became well-known outside India by Abhayacharanabinda Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada (1965) and his International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). The original Mantra in the Koli-Santaran Upanishad is -
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

        After the success of the ISCKON movement, it became the Maha Mantra for the devotees and the trend changed to put in the name of Krishna instead of Rama first.
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare
            The word 'Mantra' means transmitting or setting the mind free. The word "Hare" refers to God's divine feminine power. "Krishna" means all-attractive & "Rama" is an all-pleasure storage place. Whichever way we think, we gain in our way. This is the most important and interesting matter of devotion. Anyone as much as thought about Him (Lord), he should gain much more. The meaning of Maha-Mantra is like that. There are so many meanings behind it as the thought of various devotees. 
  • The Mantra is first viewed in the Koli-Santaran Upanishad and in this Upanishad, Narada was instructed by Brahma: Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare, Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare (Name of Lord Narayan), these 16 names are destructive for the human-demon/evil effects of Kali.
  • It is sometimes assumed that 'Rama' in 'Hare Rama' means 'Radharamana' or "Radha's beloved" (another name of Krishna). The most common interpretation is that Rama refers to Rama Ramayana, the former incarnation of Krishna. Rama can also be a shortened form of Balarama, the first extension of Krishna.
  • It is also said in Narada Pancharatri that --Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare - These eight words contain all the Vedic works, Mantras and Gyan (knowledge). Narad Puran Slokas 38/126 says that the holy Harinaam Sankirtan (Chanting of Hare Krishna....) is the only way of salvation in this noisy, hypocritical Koli-age.
হরের নাম হরের নাম হরের নামৈব কেবলম 
কলৌ নাস্তেব্য নাস্তেব্য নাস্তেব্য গতিরন্যাথা.
(Harernaam Harernaam Harernaamaibo Kebalam
Kalou Nastyebya Nastyebya Nastyebya Gatiranyatha)

  • There are eight Hare, four Krishna, four Rama in the name. This is very secretive to someone. Hare means 'take away'. Krishna means attraction. First Krishna - Sree Govinda, Second Krishna - Basudev, Third Krishna - Sree Jagannath, Fourth Krishna - Balabadra. In the same way, First Rama - Srimati Radha Rani, Second Rama - Goddess Laxmi, Third Rama - Devi Saraswati, Fourth Rama - Devi Subhadra. The secret theory is hidden in this Maha Mantra, real spiritual preceptors may be understood.
            Krishna and Krishna Naam is one and the same. Like Krishna Himself, Krishna Naam is also pure, holy, full, and free. The sacred Harinaam is the sound wave of the supernatural, the Word of Brahma - the love wealth of the Golakdham. It is not possible for the learned so-called scholars to understand the supernatural element of the Holy Harinaam by arguing dull logic.

Provas Yagna | প্রভাস যজ্ঞ Part-II

Part - II

Debarshi Narad Came to Dwarakapuri (To Meet with Sree Krishna, Basudev)
               After assuring the residents of Vrindavan, Debarshi Narad sharply came to Dwaraka. He was surprised by looks of Dwarakapuri, the self-created Vishwakarma will crush the pride of Debraj Indra. How can it be described? So beautiful the city, the house, the lake inside, the building like gold with pearls is excellent. The guard sitting at the door was like a Yamraj himself, enemies have not so courage comes from the outside? But for the saints, there was no baron, Narad was very happy to see it. Playing his Bina (musical instrument), to do Harinam kirtan, he immediately entered Dwarkapuri. After entered, Munibar observed there were so many Krishna's children.....someone playing, some dancing etc etc, all were so happy. Suddenly they heard the sound of Bina, at a glance they discovered Maharshi. Some of them run away from afraid to see the Narad Muni, someone spread dust to him, those who are a little older, came closer and laughed at him.
           Anyhow, first went to Basudev (father of Sree Krishna) and talked about Sree Krishna's Leela and spend sometimes with him. Basudev bowed in devotion & Narad told I will come back to you after meeting everyone.         
             Why Debarshi Narad came? Lord understood everything. What is unknown to Him? The Lord sat in a seat with the goddess Rukmini to show Narad the Dwaraka's illusion. Numerous companions (Sakhigans) sat down surrounded Him, some rocked, some laughed, some spoke sweetly. The lord himself lured into the human's Leela. In the meantime, Maharshi came in that place. To see the Munibar, Lord himself worshiped Him and sat on a divine throne, chamar (hand-fan) shaking also. Devi Rukmini and Satyabhama started an arrangement of food for Debarshi Narad in hurry. Narad thought in this great illusion with his family, Lord Krishna will never leave Dwaraka. In the meantime, Sri Krishna asked about Brahma. Rishi Narad replied Bramhadev himself send me to you for a special purpose, which wants to discuss it with You in a secret place. Then Rishi took Krishna inside the room separately. 
Satyabhama & Rukmini Conversation     
            Seeing these, Satyabhama told Devi Rukmini, Didi (elder-sister), make a request to you. Seeing Narad, my heart trembled. Wherever the Narad Muni goes, there is a clash. Devi Rukmini also agreed. Guessing something bad for us waiting. Will we lose Sree Krishna forever? Another thought comes to mind. Vrindavan has visited before Narad Muni came here. It would be difficult to keep the Lord if He listens to that story of Vrindaban. His soul belongs to Radha Rani's life, then somehow forgot because of the curse, what will happen to us when that love awakens? Do you know what caused Narad to come? Will Maharshi go away to Vrindaban with Krishna? Then Devi Rukmini replied to Satyabhama, One who worships, chanting Krishna, He never leaves him/her. We also know nothing but Krishna. Why Lord Krishna will leave us? Don't worry. After listening to it, Devi Satyabhama founded peace of mind.
 Vrindaban as Described by Narad 
          Meanwhile, Narad sat down with Sree Krishna and told Him all the events of Vrindavan. Hey Narayan! it's my humble submission, I went to Vrindavan by order of Brahma. What can be said to You? Losing You, their grief & misery is not like talking about. 
Radha just cries day and night after missing you. The curse of Srimadam is now over. But You forget Sree Krishna. Do you know that if someday Radharani's anger will be started and this world will be destroyed completely? Even You can't save. For this very reason, Brahmadeb himself sending me to couple You again. It was a long-time, without RadhaKrishna, Golakdham is empty. Kindly finish Your human's Leela now. 
          Just after hearing of Radharani, Krishna went silent. Her heart was weeping internally when He heard His Lover's grief. But did not outburst. Seeing the Lord is silent, Narad being continued. Your father and mother utterly crying only day and night for you. There is no end to their crying. Hey Narayan! they will probably be blinded by their weak body. Their only wish Gopal come once, how long we did not see You. How are You? What do You want? Who will feed Khir, Sar, Nani to my Gopal? To say that again in senseless lying on the ground. 
         Just listening to this, Krishna's mind was restless. He Can't hold back tears, but there is no revelation outside. Narad could not understand anything, what was His feeling. So he again started. Hey Giridhari! At your separation, they all ready to jump to Jamuna to die. I comforted that I united them with you again. Somehow I gave up their lives. They have accepted it as the speech of Saint is equality of speech of Veda. Hey, Merciful! Now kindly do something for Brajabasi. How can I unite you all again? Please show me the way, took my heartiest request.           After listening to all the words of Narad Krishna thought internally how do I go to Vrindavan? How do I relieve their suffering?  Left Vrindavan, Radha will never come to Mathura. Again if I go from Dwarka to Vrindavan, all the Dwarka's residents will die. They also too love Krishna with their lives. Then He decided in mind to build a palace in a middle place, where everyone could come. But Sree Krishna didn't say anything. He wants Narada's mind will stir this, and feeling everything out of his mouth. Then Lord started to tell totally opposite feelings.
Sree Krishna Started to Say Opposite Feelings 
           Narad I know how the Brajabasi loves me. Mother Yashoda tied me up for stealing so much, how much I suffered. Crown (peacock feather) of my head is curled up to pull my father's load. Khir, Nani is my favorite, so I used to eat from their (Brajabasis) houses, everyone complained to My mother and owe Me. How much suffering faced in my mind? The shepherd boys used to stand on my shoulder during the play. They gave me always very speedy cows. What could I do then? Now in Dwaraka, how much I enjoyed, sufficient food, no one owe me here. 
           And your Radha Rani, what more can I say about her? One day when I went to the Chandraboli's hut, to know this, in anger Radha did not allow me to enter. In the end, forgiveness was on his feet, but that did not diminish his anger. How much did Sree Hari say in deception? So that the residents of Dwarka did not get suffer. 
Narad Started according to Sree Krishna's Feeling Rises by Himself in Narad's Mind
                 After completed talking, Narayana came again and sat on the throne. The women (Sakhigan) sat surrounded him. Narad decided (as Krishna's thought) after heard everything, in the middle of Vrindaban and Mathura, someplace where united them all. After deeply thinking about this, Narad thought, where is such a holy place without 'Pravas'? -- which is what actually Sree Krishna himself wants.
Proposal of Pravas Yagna by Debarshi Narad
           Narad Said Hey Lord Sree Krishna! has a desire in my mind, on the occasion of Pravas Yagna, to invite everyone in this universe. All the Gods, Gandharbya, Yagkhya, human beings, Brajabasi all will come, then the task will be accomplished. Ok now going to tell Your father Basudev everything. Krishna gives a smile after heard Narad's proposal.
