Quotes on Navadwip Dham Parikrama

 by Srila Bhakti Ballabh Tirtha Goswami Maharaja

“By performing parikrama, our love and attachment to the Supreme Lord increases and we lose interest in any matter not related to the Supreme Lord.”

“Sri Mayapura and Sri Navadvip dham are not parts of West Bengal or India or a land of matter. Navadvip dham or Sri Mayapura dham has descended. As Sri Gaurhari is beyond our comprehension, His dham is also beyond our comprehension. By the causeless mercy of Sri Gaurhari, Gaur-dham, we can have contact with it.”

“More than one thousand devotees participated in Sri Navadvip dham parikrama celebration, they stayed at our Math as guests. It was a huge thing. So, naturally we were all awfully busy in looking into the arrangements of stay and Prasäd of guests as well as regarding parikrama. We performed parikrama daily on foot and with sankirtan procession, walking daily four miles, ten miles, one-day 17-18 miles. Millions of people came to visit the birthplace of Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and the places of holy pastimes of Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and His associates.”

“Circumambulation of the Holy Abode of Supreme Lord Sri Hari is one of the principal devotions out of 64 kinds of devotion as indicated by Sri Rüpa Goswami in his writing ‘Sri Bhakti Rasamrita Sindhu'”

“Parikrama (circumambulation) for devotion is to be performed on bare foot. It will be service to the devotees if we can give them comfort in performing parikrama on bare foot. Service to devotees is actual service to God.”

“Many householder devotees who are not able to get much sadhu sanga, come for Navadwip dham parikrama and the effect of this injection remains for rest of the year and then again.”

“We are all busy here regarding the arrangements of circumambulation of Navadwip dham.”

“A household devotee will do vaishnav-seva, Harinama and Bhagavat path in all holy deeds. To pray Grace of Bhagwan Narasingh Deva is also good to remove obstacles. You can do vaishnav-seva at Sri Mayapura during Navadwipa-dham parikrama.”
