Sri Navadvipa-dhama Parikrama
19 – 25 March 2024

We cordially invite you for our 7-day inspirational pilgrimage to the nine islands of Sri Navadvipa dham, West Bengal, in the company of blissful devotees from all over the world.

Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja’s hearts desire and great pleasure is that during Sri Navadvipa-dhama and Sri Vraja-mandala parikrama devotees from all over the world come together as a loving family and become immersed in sweet hari-katha, remembering the pastimes of Sri Sri Radha Krsna and Sri Gaura Nityananda Prabhu. This week-long immersion offers the opportunity of visiting and hearing about all of Mahaprabhu’s transcendental pastime places in Navadvipa dham, of deepening our realization through hearing Vaisnavas’ recollections of the philosophical conclusions of Gaudiya Vaishnavism, of performing kirtana morning, noon and night in midst of 1000th’s devotees, and of being in the company of sincere devotees from Bengal and all around the world.

One party will be lead by members of the International Gaudiya Vedanta Trust (IGVT), the other parikrama party will be lead by the Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti Trust (GVST).

aradhitam nava-vanam vraja-kananam te
naradhitam nava-vanam vraja eva dure
aradhito dvija-suto vraja-nagaras te
naradhito dvija-suto na taveha krsnah

"If you worship the nine islands of Navadvipa, you are actually worshiping Vrndavana and can easily gain entrance into that confidential place. If you don't worship and take shelter of Navadvipa-dhama, Vrndavana will be very far away from you. If someone will worship dvija-suta (Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu), the son of the brahmana Jagannatha Misra, that person will attain vraja-nagara Sri Krsna in Vrndavana. If one worships Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, who is actually Krsna Himself, in Navadvipa, one is performing complete worship of Krsna. Worshiping Sacinanadana Gaurahari in Navadvipa is as good as worshiping Krsna in Vrndavana. If one does not worship dvija-suta Gaurahari, Lord Krsna will be very far away."

Srila Prabodhananda Sarasvati’s Navadvipa Satakam, verse 78

Sri Gaura and Sri Krsna comprise an identical spiritual principle (tattva); there is no difference whatsoever between Them. Sri Krsna, the personification of sweetness (madhurya- vigraha), is none other than Sri Gaurasundara Himself, who is the personification of munificence (audarya-vigraha), and vice versa. Sri Krsnas abode, Sri Vrndavana, is similarly identical in all respects to Sri Gaura’s abode, Sri Navadvipa, which is actually called Gupta- Vrndavana, the hidden Vrndavana. In this way, both the divine principles (tattvas) and holy abodes (dhamas) are eternal and not affected by mundane considerations such as time, place and circumstance.

’kṛṣṇa-nāma’ kare aparādhera vicāra
kṛṣṇa balile aparādhīra nā haya vikāra

[Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila 8.24]

There are offenses to be considered while chanting the Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra. Therefore simply by chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa one does not become ecstatic.

Even if he is chanting the name of Krsna, a person who is committing offenses will not be able to attain love for Krsna (krsna-prema) in millions and millions of lifetimes. However, gaura-nityanandera nahi e saba vicara, nama laile prema dena, bahe akrudhara, Sri Gaura and Sri Nityananda do not consider any offenses. When one chants Their names, prema will awaken in the heart and torrents of tears will begin to flow from the eyes. Like Sri Gaurahari Himself, His abode is supremely liberal and the most magnanimous. Without worshipping and attaining the mercy of Sri Gaurahari and His abode, Sri Navadvipa, it is impossible to obtain darsana (a vision) and the mercy of Sri Vrndavana.

Sri Krsna’s dhama, Vrndavana, and Sri Gaura’s dhama, Navadvipa, are non-different. Therefore, the perimeter of Sri Navadvipa-dhama extends to sixteen kosas (approximately thirty-two miles), just like the perimeter of Sri Vrndavana. All the places of Sri Vrndavana, such as Sri Yamuna, Sri Govardhana, Sri Rasa-sthali, Sri Radha-kunda, Sri Syama-kunda and various sub-forests, also exist eternally in a concealed form in Sri Navadvipa-dhama. Sri Gaurasundara sports eternally in this abode. Fortunate living beings can experience Sriman Mahaprabhu’s eternal pastimes by performing nama-sankirtana under the guidance of His pure devotees.
