  1. During kirtans and bhajans the devotees of New Vraja Dham in Hungary, as well as H.H. Sivarama Swami who is GBC there, sometimes chant the names of the presiding Dieties of the temple - Sri Sri Radhe Syamasundara - "Radhe Syam, Radhe Syam" (NOT Radhe Ram as falsely claimed by Guest 2332) Just as in any temple one would chant the names of Their Lordships presiding. Indeed the revered residence of Sri Vrindavan dham are heard to be greeting each and everyone with "Radhe Radhe" and "Radhe Syam"... as Radha and Syama are the life and soul of Vrindavans inhabitants... as the Presiding Dieties of any temple are the life and soul of that yatra. Please see Sri Caitanya Caritamrta, Madhya 1.35, Purport by HDG AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada - Srila Prabhupada outlines the contents of Sanatana Goswami's Hari-Bhakti-Vilas and includes this statement "One is instructed on how to chant the holy name of the Deity"... It may also be noted the next statement Srila Prabhupada makes in the same sentence - "...and there are discussions about offenses committed while chanting the holy name, along with methods for getting relief from such offenses." Padma Purana Brahma Khanda 25.15–18 Ten offenses to the Holy Name satam ninda namnah paramam aparadham vitanute yatah khyatim yatam katham u sahate tad-vigarham "To blaspheme devotees who have dedicated their lives to chanting the holy name of the Lord. The holy name, who is identical with Krsna, will never tolerate such blasphemous activities." Some Devotees are too fond, and quick off the mark to trash ISKCON, and its Guru's. Its a shame, and sad to see Vaisnavas fall in this trap, wasting valuable energy to create further entanglement. Spiritual life is indeed a razors edge, and one has to be vary aware of the fact that disrespecting ANYONE, let alone other Vaisnavas is against Lord Chaitanyas teachings. We would be wise to think a thousand times and consult seniors and peers before declaring anyone a propounder of "bogus concoctions" - on a whim, after not going through any research etc. etc... Sadly may so called practicing Vaisnavas do not check their mentality and behaviour against peers and seniors and are prone to use their independance to hamper their own advancement... when rather they could have been chanting Hare Krishna or Radhe Syam instead. krisna.hu/galeria/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=0&pos=2 Sri Sri Radhe Syamasundara - "Radhe Syam" The presiding Dieties Of New Vraja Dhama, Hungary.
