By Srili BB Bodhayan Swami.

MAIN PURPOSE

Purpose is to increase our enthusiasm to chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra with proper mood and
understanding while we are chanting on the beads without discrimination amongst the devotees.
Nowadays it is common problem amongst us and most of the time we are discriminating each other
with the issue of different Society, different Spiritual Master and seniority etc. According to the
instruction of our previous priest (Acharya), His Divine Grace, Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati
Goswami Thakur Prabhupadas last instruction was that we have to be together under the guidance of a
Spiritual Master (ASHRAYA VIGRAHA) without discrimination amongst each other to spread the
message of Rupa & Raghunath with full of enthusiasm. For keeping the focus of the above instruction
of Prabhupada Bhakti Siddhanta the retreat programs will represent-- though we have different spiritual
masters, but we are together for practicing the path of devotion and increasing our ability to chant,
Hare Krishna Mahamantra according to the instruction of Sri Krishna Chitanya Mahaprabhu. Gradually
such practice makes our mind that though we have different spiritual masters but according to the
scriptural instruction we belong to one Guru-Tatva (ultimate truth about Guru) i.e Supreme personality
of Godhead, Sri Sri Radha Krishna.
Therefore, retreat programs will keep two alters one for Gurudevas and another for Sri Sri RadhaGovinda. Everyone should bring their Spiritual Masters picture and keep them on the alter accordingly.
We have to keep our focus towards chanting Hare Krishna Mahamantra with thinking in our mind
either Sri Sri Radha- Krishnas pastimes or Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhus pastime, instead of
thinking to increase ones material wealth or establishing a new society for getting our name & fame
(Pratistha), in order to deliver our self from the material world.
In this iron age (KALI YUGA) people can easily deliver through chanting, Hare Krishna Mahamantra.
Therefore the retreat programs should be free from all types of societys politics and encourage us to
chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra without discrimination of spiritual master and society. Only focus to
chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra and contents of discourses will be about Mahamantra from different
pastimes of Mahaprabhu and Harinamamrita Sindhu-Vindu, a book which is written by Srila Bhakti
Tirtha Thakur, a disciple of Sacidananda Srila Bhakti Vinode Thakur.
Every devotee should keep in their minds that gossip and criticism is strictly forbidden while we are at
the retreat. Every societys devotees can attend the program without any hesitation. Gradually such
practice will allow us to chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra without offences and that effort makes us
qualified to get PREMA (Divine Love) what we are searching for in each of our endeavor. NIRAPARADHE NAM LAILE PAI PREMA-DHAN.
Also the retreat programs will make one understand that our main Guru is Krishna Himself, all present
living Gurudevas represent Krishna with their practice. As per the instruction of Spiritual Master, living
Gurus dedicate themselves towards Sri Sri Radha & Krishnas services. According to their realization of
the practices they are teaching us how to develop our devotional life and gradually reach our main goal
to get Krishna Prema with keeping due respect to all Vaisnavas.

HOWTOOBSERVETHESEDAYS:
Early in the morning at least one hour before sunrise, everybody should attend Mangal Arati with
devotional cloth and putting Tilak on 12 places of our body, according to the instruction of scripture as
follows:
Everybody should take (PANCHA PATRA one small water pot and small spoon) the spoon in his or
her right hand and put one or two spoonfuls of water in the left palm. They should then take gopi
chandan and mix it with the water on the palm to make a creamy paste. Using the right hand ring
finger, the devotee should make the tilaka markings on the body in the following order, reciting the
given mantra with each mark:

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
11.
12.

Forehead o kl keavya nama.


Above the navel o kl nryaya nama.
Chest o kl mdhavya nama.
The throat o kl govindya nama.
Right side, above the waist o kl viave nama.
Right bicep o kl madhusdanya nama.
Right shoulder o kl trivikramya nama.
Left side, above the waist o kl vmanya nama.
Left arm o kl rdharya nama.
Left shoulder o kl hkeya nama.
The upper back o kl padmanbhya nama.
The base of the back o kl dmodarya nama

The gopi chandan paste remaining in the palm of the hand should be wiped on the crown of the head,
and if any is still left, it can be wiped off with a special cloth used only for this purpose.
After finishing the tilaka ritual, devotees should chant the following mantra for the purification of the
mind and body

apavitra pavitro v
sarvvasth gatopi v
ya smaret puarkka
sa bhybhyantara uci
om uci, om uci, om uci.
Whoever remembers the lotus-eyed Lord (Om Maryyada Purushottam Sri
Ramchandra ki jaya; Om lila Purushottam Sri Krishna Chandra Ki jaya; Om preme
Purushottam Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu ki jaya) in all circumstances, pure or
impure, will always remain pure and holy, both internally and externally.
