patitānāḿ pāvanebhyo vaiṣṇavebhyo namo namaḥ

Srī Caitanya Mahāprabhu is always accompanied by His plenary expansion Srī Nityānanda Prabhu, His incarnation Srī Advaita Prabhu, His internal potency Srī Gadādhara Prabhu, and His marginal potency Srīvāsa Prabhu. He is in the midst of them as the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

 

Hare Kṛṣṇa Mahā-mantra

hare kṛṣṇa hare kṛṣṇa kṛṣṇa kṛṣṇa hare hare

hare rāma hare rāma rāma rāma hare hare

The word Harā is the form of addressing the energy of the Lord, and the words Kṛṣṇa and Rāma are forms of addressing the Lord Himself. Both Kṛṣṇa and Rāma mean "the supreme pleasure," and Harā is the supreme pleasure energy of the Lord, changed to Hare in the vocative. The supreme pleasure energy of the Lord helps us to reach the Lord.


harer nāma harer nāma harer nāmaiva kevalam
kalau nāsty eva nāsty eva nāsty eva gatir anyathā

TRANSLATION
(from Brhan Naradiya Purana)
"Only the Holy Name, Only the Holy Name, Only the Holy Name, is the only way. There is no other way, no other way, no other way in this Age of Kali"
