SRI KRISHNA CHAITANYA ANTARANG RAS ASWADAN MANDIR is the FIRST Bonafide Gauòéya Vaiñëavism- Rägamärga Preaching Movement in the history of mankind, having an unbroken Paramparä (Lineage) coming directly from Çréman Gauräìga Mahäprabhu.
There are various Bonafide chains (Pariväras) coming from Çréman Gauräìga Mahäprabhu like Advaita Parivära, Nityänanda Parivära, Gadädhara Parivära, Narottama Parivära, Çyämänanda Parivära, Narhari Parivära, Gopäla Bhaööa Parivära, Vakreçvara Parivära etc. Of these, KARM belongs to the (ever glorious) Nityänanda Parivära beginning from Lord Nityänanda-Mä Jähnavä. KARM is actually The Divine Will of the Lord for propagating The Highest Bliss- Maïjaré Bhäva Sädhanä (the practice to become Çrématé Rädhäräné’s dearmost maidservant on siddhi/perfection)
Founded in January 5, 2010 in New Delhi, KARM is a breakthrough in the Gauòéya Vaiñëava Movements and Temple traditions.
KARM- The Divine Will of the Lord…
Çré Çré Shachinandan Jé Mahäräja lays the foundation of KARM in dedication to His Spiritual Master, Çré Çré Anaìta Däsa Bäbäjé Mahäräja, after knowing His heartfelt concern, for taking care of His Granthas, after His Disappearance.
KARM is exemplary in glorifying the age-old tradition of rendering pure devotional service by a Surrendered Disciple to the Spiritual Master.
In 2009, on the Disappearance day of His Parama Gurudeva, Çré Çré Kuïjabihärédäsa Bäbäjé Mahäräja (the Spiritual Master of Çré Çré Anaìta Däsa Bäbäjé Mahäräja),Our Gurudeva, Çré Çacénaìdana Jé Mahäräja received instruction by Çré Anaìta Däsa Bäbäjé Mahäräja to take care of His and Parama Gurudeva’s (Çré Kuïjabihärédäsa Bäbäjé Mahäräja) Granthas and distribute them all over. In the very next meeting, Çré Anaìta Däsa Bäbäjé Mahäräja once again expressed His heartfelt desire to Çré Shachinandan Jé Mahäräja, this time about Temple Construction. He guided about the Deities, the location of Temple etc.
Çré Shachinandan Jé Mahäräja made the single Instruction of His Gurudeva as His Life and soul. Having spontaneous readiness for intense action to follow His Gurudeva’s Instruction, He started planning for the same, day in and day out by changing His lifestyle 360 degrees from (intense solitary) Bhajana to (overt) Preaching, to honour and follow His Spiritual Master’s Instruction, thus changing the face of humanity forever by establishing KARM.
KARM thus sets an example of nectarine Guru- Çiñya Relationship, between a bonafide Guru and a surrendered Disciple. It is an outcome of the Loving Service being rendered by an Äcärya, Çré Gurudeva to His Own Spiritual Master, Çré Anaìta Däsa Bäbäjé Mahäräja, thus opening the fortune of every living entity of this planet by bestowing Loving Devotional service of Çrématé Rädhäräné and Lord Gauräìga.
KARM- an offering of a True Disciple unto the LotusFeet of His Spiritual Master…
To further this cause, various temples will be opening around the world by Çré Çré Shachinandan Jé Mahäräja, first of which will come up shortly in New Delhi, India, which will make Delhi glorious all over the world.
Teachings of KARM-
KARM aims to fulfil Çréman Gauräìga Mahäprabhu’s Innermost desire, that is to distribute the Highest, the most intimate Bliss among each and every living entity, of Maïjaré Bhäva Sädhanä.
Çréman Gauräìga Mahäprabhu is Rädhä-Kåñëa’s combined form and is the most munificent of Lord’s Incarnations, descending only once in the cycle of 1000 catura yuga. He distributed the Highest Bliss which He Himself tasted and relished- the Maïjaré Bhäva Sädhanä, without considering any qualification.
anarpita-carīṁ cirāt karuṇayāvatīrṇaḥ kalau
samarpayitum unnatojjvala-rasāṁ sva-bhakti-śriyam
sadā hṛdaya-kandare sphuratu vaḥ śacī-nandanaḥ
Lord Gauräìga was so eager to bless the entire humanity with this Topmost Gift- Rädhädäsyaà, that He empowered Çré Rüpa Gosvämé ädi sad Gosvämés to speak, write such Literatures so that people of Kali Yuga can enter into and have nitya (eternal) sevä of the Divine Couple in Nikuïjas of Våndävana. KARM imbibes all these Teachings. The Teachings of KARM are exclusively based upon Teachings of Çréman Gauräìga Mahäprabhu, Six Gosvämés and of previous Äcäryas in the Bonafide lineage of Mahäprabhu, without distorting the pure meaning.
For the past 100-150 years, Real Gauòéya Vaiñëavism Philosophy, which holds the treasure of Love and happiness, has lost its meaning. It has either been distorted by people, group of people or organisations, or remained hidden with very few rägamärga practising saints. Through the blessings of the Lord, Guru Paramparä, KARM endeavours to bring in light the True Gauòéya Vaiñëavism with lucidity to everyone.
Sum and Substance of KARM-
trying to give the Highest Happiness…
Närada Puräëa states-“tattvaà guru samaà nasti”- Amongst all the understandings and Principles, GURU TATTVA is the highest and foremost.” KARM is Truly blessed with This, which makes the teachings simply effortless to practice.
KARM intends to/principally believes in connecting the living entities/people to the Lord through connection to the 500 year old unbroken bonafide Lineage through Initiation, so that they remain under shelter and practice devotion.
KARM is facilitating in all aspects a platform for rendering services like hearing, reading Scriptures, serving Vaiñëavas, Chanting with conception, Deity Worship, Gayätré, Yogapéöha sevä and other limbs of devotional service thereby making Smaraëa, which is the very life of bhajana, practically effortless. Eventually, the practising devotee can perceive Rädhä Kåñëa Pastimes as well as Gauräìga Mahäprabhu’s Pastimes.
KARM is the Saviour for entire humanity. It provides journey for a practising devotee from material embodiment to one’s eternal svarüpa. The perfection of practice given by Lord Gauräìga leads to the attainment of two svarüpas – as a Maïjaré in Vraja and Kiçora Brähmaëa in Navadvépa.
Selfless Loving Culture is the benchmark-
The base of KARM is Deep Loving Relationships among Devotees. The practical implementation of six prété lakçaëa, given by Çré Rüpa Gosvämé (dadäti pratigrhnäti guhyam äkhyäti påcchati bhuïkte bhojayate caiva ñaò-vidhaà préti-lakñaëaà”- meaning- Offering gifts, accepting gifts, revealing one’s mind in confidence, inquiring confidentially, accepting prasäda and offering prasäda are the six symptoms of love shared by one devotee and another] is only in KARM, and is practised to the highest limit on planet earth in KARM as foremost priority by all devotees. Exchange of gifts, serving and accepting Prasädaà is a tradition in KARM.
“individually we grow, together we flourish”…
The fragrance of deep relations and selfless service carries the vibrations of serenity and purifies the heart deep within. KARM is actually the only hope for the entire humanity, fulfilling jéva’s eternal longing for Reciprocated Love, quenching the thirst for Deep Relations and satiating the hunger for Real Happiness.
Vivacious Celebrations at KARM-
As is in Lord’s Abode – Goloka Våndävana, in KARM, it is always “Party, Party and Preparation for Party”- in KARM.
“It’s always- Party…And Preparation for party…!!”
KARM celebrates Janmäñtmé, Rädhäñtmé, Gaura Pürëimä, Nityänanda Trayodaçé, Guru Pürëimä, Deities Anniversary and the ever-awaited Çré Gurudeva Appearance Day, among other festivals, in fullest colours and great vigour.
Celebration time is a very special time full with events and moments. All services are rendered with lots of love and care, viz Theme based decoration, cake making and exuberant 56 bhoga etc. Devotees, thus happily unified, have great time in momentous preparations and eventful celebrations. Everything is imbued with affection.
KARM Holds hope for the future of humanity. In this age, when actual meaning of Love, Happiness is distorted, and is used for own selfish interests, this Society, which is actually a token of Love from a True Disciple, is an effort to establish the Yuga Dharma of fulfilling The divine message and desire of The Lord. Thus KARM is the Lord’s Benediction to not only bring the living entities closer to the Lord but also enable them enter the innermost chambers of The Lord’s pastimes which are opened to Rädhäräné’s dear most sakhés- maïjarés alone and render “The pure, selfless Loving devotional service to Çré Yugala.”
