Today’s class was given on Friday, March 10, 2006, when Srila Dhanurdhara Swami spoke about preparing for Gaura Purnima at 26 Second Avenue in New York City.
jaya jaya gauracandra jaya kṛpā-sindhu
jaya jaya śacī-suta jaya dīna-bandhu
All glories unto Śrī Gaurahari, who is an ocean of mercy! All glories unto You, the son of Śacīdevī, for You are the only friend of all fallen souls!
jayatāṁ suratau paṅgor
mama manda-mater gatī
Glory to the all-merciful Rādhā and Madana-mohana! I am lame and ill advised, yet They are my directors, and Their lotus feet are everything to me.
citrau śan-dau tamo-nudau
I offer my respectful obeisances unto Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya and Lord Nityānanda, who are like the sun and moon. They have arisen simultaneously on the horizon of Gauḍa to dissipate the darkness of ignorance and thus wonderfully bestow benediction upon all.
yasya prasādād ajño ’pi
sadyaḥ sarva-jñatāṁ vrajet
sa śrī-caitanya-devo me
Even a person with no knowledge can immediately acquire all knowledge simply by the benediction of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Therefore I am praying to the Lord for His causeless mercy upon me.

īśitavyaiḥ kim asmābhir
Otherwise, why would the supreme controller — whose every desire is already fulfilled and who is the master of liberation and all other transcendental benedictions — enact this pretense with us, who are always to be controlled by Him?
