      Sree Sree Guru Gaurangau Jayatah!

      Although human beings are liable to be punished, they can be released from the sins of millions of births by uttering Namabhas— glow of the Holy Name of Sri Hari. Even they can get emancipation, example— Ajamila, as narrated in Srimad Bhagavatam, 6th Canto. Uttering of the Holy Name is even more powerful than performing silently on the beads. If Holy Name is uttered loudly, beasts and birds will also be benefited by hearing. It is stated in Padma Purana, while doing Harinam, the votary should be careful, not to commit offence to Vishnu and Vaishnavas. Offence to Vaishnavas is more serious than offence committed to Vishnu. Ajamila did not speak ill of God or devotees, but had the aptitude of sense-enjoyment. His youngest son's name was Narayan. He had great affection for the son and was fully engrossed in thinking about his son. All of a sudden, three messengers of God of death appeared. By seeing the horrible figures, out of fear he loudly uttered `Narayan!' From the little son it ultimately targeted Vishnu Narayan, so it is called `Saanketya Namabhas'. By this he was rescued from all sins committed in his millions of births, even got emancipation, Mukti.

      It is stated above that offenders committing offence to Vaishnavas and Guru are not rescued by uttering Holy Name, but again in this very kaliyuga, Supreme Lord appeared as Gaur-Nityananda. Even the offenders who committed offence to Vaishnavas and Guru, utter the Holy Name Nitai-Gauranga with firm faith that Sriman Nintyananda Prabhu and Gauranga Mahaprabhu are Grace-incarnate Forms of Supreme Lord, they will be rescued form the offences. Our Most Revered Gurudeva used to warn that the votary should be simple hearted and sincere. It is not that out of deceitfulness they go on reproaching the sadhus and gurus thinking that they will utter Nitai-Gauranga at the end of the day and they will be rescued. This is also a kind of offence like one of the tenfold offences to Holy Name is `Nama bale pap budhi'— to commit sins thinking that chanting of the Holy Name will destroy all sins.
