Fwd: Holy Name of Krishna

Padma Puran has following verse:

नाम: चिंतामणि कृष्णश्चैतन्य रस विग्रह:| पूर्ण शुद्धो नित्यमुक्तोSभिन्नत्वं नाम नामिनो:||

nama chintamani krsnas 
chaitanya rasa vigrahah
purnah shuddho nitya muktoh
abhinattvam nama naminoh

"The Holy Name of Krishna is a spiritual touchstone: whatever and whomever is fortunate enough to contact that sound will be benefited beyond imagination. The Holy Name is the very form of Eternal spiritual personal relationship. He is complete and eternally liberated, and there is no difference between the Holy Name and He Who is named."

Spiritual Shelter

During my daily japa meditation there is a beginning phase when I'm thinking _about_ taking shelter of the holy names, and then there is _actually_ taking shelter of the holy names.

Prabhupada Memories - DVD 27 - Shyamasundara Dasa.

Praise God Srila Prabhupada

Baba Balmukund: I’ve seen many sadhus and great saints in this Gita Bhavan. I saw Srila Prabhupada also in the same place. I was very much impressed by Srila Prabhupada and his preaching. It was because Prabhupada had revealed the reality about bhakti because he was a pure bhakta that he could change the people of the West and give them another dress, he could give them another diet, and he could entirely change their culture and give them true bhakti. And this was the greatest thing Prabhupada has done. Let the world say as it likes, but he has done a marvelous thing regarding Lord Krishna’s bhakti. What Swami Vivekananda, Swami Ramtirtha and others could not do, Srila Prabhupada has done. It is a marvelous thing. —SRILA PRABHUPADA-LILAMRTA
