A fter the ectastic Sri Radha-Madhava Elephant Procession & Adhivas ceremony of Kirtan mela on the first day of the festival , the day 2 of the Gaura Purnima began with packed Mangala arthi & Srngar arti darshan and HH Sivaram Swami ‘s lecture on glories on Holy name-a topic in line with Kirtan Mela! Maharaj spoke on 184 verse from Brihad Bhagavatamrta, which is :
śrīman-nāma prabhos tasya śrī-mūrter apy ati-priyam jagad-dhitaṃ sukhopāsyaṃ sa-rasaṃ tat-samaṃ na hi
TRANSLATION:Dearer to the Lord than even His own beautiful form, His easily worshiped holy name benefits the entire world. Indeed, nothing is as full of nectar as the holy name of the Lord.
Lecture video is available at archives of mayapur.tv and transcription shall be posted soon.
