Jayapataka Swami:  I met one person, he said he was chanting Hare Krsna for 26 years, but he didn’t feel any ecstasy. I asked him if he was in our line. He said that he wasn’t in Lord Caitanya’s line. Some Sitaram, Omkarnath or something. I gave him the Panca Tattva mantra. SRI KRSNA CAITANYA PRABHU NITYANANDA SRI ADVAITA GADADHARA SRIVAS ADI GAURA BHAKTA VRNDA. So he thanked me and said he would chant that first. Then I left. But three months later I had to come to the same place. He came running to me, RUNNING! And he fell at my feet! WHAT MANTRA YOU HAVE GIVEN ME! WHAT MANTRA YOU HAVE GIVEN ME! I HAVE BEEN CHANTING THIS CAITANYA MANTRA, I HAVE BEEN FEELING SO MUCH BLISS! Haribol! Haribol! Haribol! So if you chant the name of Lord Caitanya, Nitai Gauranga, Nitai Gauranga jaya Nitai Gauranga! Sri Krsna Caitanya Prabhu Nityananda Sri Advaita Gadadhara Srivas Adi Gaura Bhakta Vrnda. Haribol! Haribol! So by Their mercy you should feel some bliss! If you are not feeling ecstasy, then you must be doing some vaisnava aparadh. Vaisnava aparadh can stop one’s devotion. Lord Caitanya taught, vaisnava aparadh is like a mad elephant and it rips out the creeper of devotion and dries it up. Like a mad elephant stomping on a creeper. So even Lord Caitanya said that no one should say or criticize Jagai Madhai for their previous sins. Since they have taken initiation, they have been forgiven for all of their sins. Hare Krsna!
