Reflections on Sacred Teachings Vol.3
This is the third volume of the series “Reflections on Sacred Teachings,” and it elaborates on the Harinama Cintamani, originally written by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura about Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu appealing to Srila Haridas Thakura to speak high philosophy on the potency and efficacy of the Holy Name, Bhakti-Tirtha Swami interweaves recurring themes of personal endeavor and Krishna’s mercy, compassion, and understanding for those who struggle, and uncompromising, honest introspection. Reading this book is a refreshing and revitalizing experimence.
The most basic practice of members of the Hare Krishna Movement is the chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra. Bhaktitirtha Swami’s exposition of Harinama Cintamani adds substantially both to the theological and practical understanding of chanting Hare Krishna.
In Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura’s Harinama Cintamani, Haridasa Thakura discusses each of the offenses to the Holy Name, as well as the stage of chanting in pure love. This text has inspired many books. Bhaktitirtha Swami’s contribution is unique, as he explores the subtleties of offenses, and explains how our daily lives in Krishna’s service affect and are affected by our chanting.
