sei krishna — navadvipe sri-chaitanya-chandra
sei balarama — sange sri-nityananda


"That original Lord Krsna appeared in Navadwip as
Lord Chaitanya, and Balarama appeared with Him
as Lord Nityananda."

sankarsanah karana-toya-sayi
garbhoda-sayi cha payo ’bdhi-sayi
sesas cha yasyamsa-kalah sa nitya-
nandakhya-ramah saranam mamastu


"May Sri Nityananda Rama be the object of my constant remembrance. Sankarsana, Sesa Naga and the Vishnus who lie on the Karana Ocean, Garbha Ocean and ocean of milk are His plenary portions and the portions of His plenary portions."

Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita Adi-lila 5.6-7

"In the great Gaudiya Vaishnava teacher's line, as Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati he's renowned. Like the radiant sun in the morning sky, he appeared to rescue all souls swallowed by the all-devouring impersonal philosophy. By spreading the teachings of Lord Gauranga to sing the Holy Name of Lord Sri Krishna, he gave all the chance to dive in the ocean of love of Sri Krishna, the Supreme Person. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta, my lord, divine master–at his feet do I pray to serve him forever."
by Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj

       Now is always a good time for krishna katha and hearing Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita with Janardan Maharaj's occasional comments and stories is a truly amazing way to spiritualize one's day.

If you can connect a USB drive in your car or play MP3 CDs, you can download the classes here and listen while you drive. Just listening to a few verses a day of gaudiya vaishnava siddhanta and gaura lila  is wonderful, what to speak of a chapter a day. Click here.
