    Devotees and Sadhakas should celebrate only Janmashtami and Ramanavami, none else. If one worships Nimain Pandit(Chaitanya), one will invite bondage, not salvation. It amounts to worship of a body, which is already extinguished. Nimain Pandit already had a Guru in Tota Puri from Gaya. Why did he go to another Guru for another diksha! One cannot enter Sanyasa ashrama without the consent of his wife and family. But, Nimain Pandit just ran away secretly, leaving his wife sleeping on his bed. This is a crime against God. Such conduct can not lead to salvationl it shall attract bondage. My Lord and Husband, Lord Krushna, is omnipresent. He is Divine and Pure. Worshipping Him frees one from bondage and leads to liberation. May my Lord bless you all! HARI BOL!


    First, a correction in my post above dated 11/02/2012. The name of the Guru of Gaya is Ishwarpuri, not Totapuri. Krushna krupa!
    There is a book, ‘Chaitanya Charitabali’ by Prabhudatta Brahmachari of Gita Press, Gorakhpur. Nimain Mishra was on the path of devotion, no doubt. But he failed to realise God. His frustrations made him repeatedly bang his head against walls! This is not the sign of a Sadhaka. He virtually pushed Chhota Haridas to death and rejoiced the news of his death! How could he be so inhuman! He lived in the house of a Gruhastha in Puri. He indulged in lot of ‘adambara’ by way of his worship by so called devotees and having specially cooked delicious food for ‘bhiksha’! Ultimately, he jumped in to the sea and his body was dragged to the shore by the fisherman’s net! He was cautioned by another Sanyasi to leave the house and live under the tree like a true Sanyasi; but he did not do so. The Sadhaka has to be strict during his sadhana period. Nimain was not. He never said that on a particular day or moment he could realise God. It appears, he did not practise the three principal Yogas of Gita. This is for the good of mankind. HARI BOL!
