Glories of sri Nabadwid Dham

“As Sri Gauracandra appeared in Nabadwip, it is therefore the crest jewel of all holy places. Offenders are the object of punishment at other holy pilgrimage places, but in Nabadwip-Dham they are purified. The example is the two brothers Jagai and Madhai, who committed great offenses yet still received Nitai and Gaura. What to speak of other places, at Vrndavana the offenders are punished. But a person who has committed hundreds of offenses can easily receive the mercy of Nityananda Prabhu and overcome those offenses in Nabadwip-Dham. For this reason, sages endlessly praise Nabadwip of Gaura-mandala. He who lives in Nabadwip-Dham is very fortunate, for he achieves attraction for Krishna. He who happens to go there becomes freed from all offenses. What one attains by traveling to all the holy places is attained just by remembering Nabadwip. In this way the scriptures sing. He who sees Nabadwip-Dham gets ecstatic love of Krishna birth after birth. Even one who goes to Nabadwip desiring to gain material comforts through pious activities will not take another birth. The Sastras say that one who walks around Nabadwip attains the fruit of millions of asvamedha yajnas at every step. And one who lives in Nabadwip and chants mantras obtains the sound of Chaitanya as his mantra and easil gets free from maya. What yogis obtain after ten years at other tirthas is obtained in three nights at Nabadwip.”
