This book is not meant for the faithless materialist. Only those who have developed unflinching faith in Lord Caitanya and in the process of chanting the holy name are eligible candidates to hear the topics discussed in this book. Amongst the different levels of sadhana-bhaktihe who is convinced that all perfections are obtained by chanting the holy name alone is the topmost jarinama or practitioner.
Sri Harinama Cintamani
Lord Caitanya has personally instructed this lesson in His Sri Siksastaka. He ordained Srila Haridasa Thakura as the namacarya or spiritual authority on the subject of chanting the holy name of the Lord.
Words in italic typeface are transliterated Sanskrit terms from the original text. In a highly esoteric and technical work. These specialized terms pose a considerable difficulty for the casual or lay reader.
Please see the Glossary beginning on page for capsule definitions of any Sanskrit or Bengali terms not defined in context. Additional background readings on the philosophy and practices of the Gaudiya Vaisnava cultural and religious tradition are suggested in the footnotes accompanying the text, and in the Bibliography beginning on page The Supreme Lord Hari descends to the material world in the Deity form to save the living entities; He gives, both material pleasure and liberation.
In this same holy place, Lord Caitanya, the Supreme Personality, appeared in the role of a renounced sannyasi to benedict humanity; He stayed at Kasi Misra’s residence and propagated the dharma necessary for this age of Kali, making everyone understand its real meaning.
Lord Gauracandra encircled him with His arms in a loving embrace and said “O Haridasa, a devotee of your caliber is rarely found. You are well-versed in all spiritual conclusions and you are always unaffected by maya.
~ Jagad Guru Chris Butler (Siddhaswarupananda Paramahamsa)
Whoever has developed unflinching faith in unalloyed devotional service to the Supreme Lord is factually superior to the demigods. The Lord said, “O Haridasa, please take hold of yourself. Explain clearly to Me about namabhasa.
Once anyone understands namabhasahe then strives towards chanting the pure name. The holy name is potent and endowed with such transcendental qualities that anyone can easily achieve liberation simply by chanting.
Thus, the holy name is like the all-powerful, brilliant sun that disperses the darkness of maya or nescience. To stream mercy upon the conditioned souls, the sun of the holy name has arisen on the horizon of this material world. I am a mere puppet.

I will list them one by one; please give me strength to avoid these offenses, my Lord. He is the lord of the universe, and the possessor of a transcendental body that is always situated in pure goodness.
Lord Krsna, the master of Goloka, is the essence and source of Lord Visnu. Krsna is embellished with sixty-four extraordinary excellences; He is the repository of all transcendental mellows.
Lord Narayana possesses sixty of those qualities, and to a lesser degree of fullness than Him, so do Lord Visnu and the purusa- avataras. S ri Harinama Cintamani:: Start Prev 1 2 3 Next Harknama Page 1 of 3.
