Each syllable has so many good meanings. There are 32 syllables, 16 names, 8 pairs, and one in each group. Separation and meeting are both present there. Hare Krsna Hare Krsna and Hare Rama Hare Rama indicates meeting. Krsna Krsna Hare Hare and Rama Rama Hare Hare indicate separation.

If we chant with this taste, and also take association from our superiors, then all perfections can be attained and we will never be able to give up harinama.

There are so many gifts that Srila Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja wanted to give you all, but he went away and there was no one who could give you this. Perhaps he called me to give some things to you all, so that you will become qualified. Then you will never give up bhakti and chanting, and you will always be absorbed in hearing hari-katha.

He has written so many truths in his explanation of Gita. At that time there were very rare devotees who could understand higher things, so he also wrote many truths in a hidden way. Otherwise, his readers would not have been able to understand.

Try to develop your bhakti so you can take everything from him. He has written so many things in his books, but it is rare to find someone able to understand and receive. Our guru-parampara, Krsna and Srimati Radhika, Caitanya Mahaprabhu, and Nityananda Prabhu have perhaps called me here, and if I will give something to you and help you, then I will see that I am successful in this tour. I pray to Them all, that they will bestow their mercy on me so that I may express to you all these hidden truths.

Inside the Hidden Heart of Jagannatha – Padmini-Ekadasi

Narada Rsi then began to sing the glories of Radharani and the prominent sakhis. Krsna slowly woke up and looked about Him in confusion. In His trance, He had been in Vraja, playing with the gopis, and now, waking to the sound of the gopis’ names, He considered Himself to still be in Vraja, and He began feeling in His waist belt, as if He was searching for something. “Where is My flute?” He said. “Who stole My flute? Lalita must have taken it. Where is she?..
