“One who walks throughout Mayapur is freed from the influence of Maya and the repetition of birth.” ( from Sri Navadvipa-dhama-mahatmya, Parikrama Khanda)

Kuruksetram krte tirtham
tretayam puskaram smrtam
dvapare naimisaranyam
nava-khandam kalu kila

“Kuruksetra is the tirtha ( purifying holy place) of Satya -yuga, Puskara for Tretayuga, Naimisaranya for Dvapara -yuga and Navadvipa for Kali yuga

“Of all the months of the year, the month of Karthik or Damodar is 100 times more than ordinary months. And this Purusottama month comes once in three years is one thousand times powerful than the kartik month. So, this is a great opportunity to chant and do some devotional service, to offer lamps to Krishna and like that increase the devotional service…”- HH Jayapataka Swami

Glories Of Purushottam Month
What is special about Purushottam month?
Lord Krishna has given His name Purusottama to this Month and declared: “Purusottama month has all the power I must bless its observer. One who follows Purusottama vrata will destroy all his past sinful reactions. 

Without performing Purusottama vrata, one cannot perform pure devotional service. The value of Purusottama month is far more valuable than all other types of austerities and religious activities mentioned in the Vedas. Anyone who observes Purusottama vrata will return to my abode, Goloka, at the end of his life". 
What are the blessings of observing Purusottama Month?
Scriptures like Padma Purana & Skandha Purana lists limitless spiritual benefits. Some of them are:
"Merciful Purusottama month acts like a desire tree to fulfill a devotee's desire".- Naimisaranya Sages

" The glory of all other months is not equal to 1/16th of the glory of the Purusottama month. By bathing in a holy place, giving charity and chanting the Holy Name Krsna during Purusottama month, all miseries are destroyed; one attains all kinds of perfection and fulfills all his desires.”-Durvasa Muni

" All holy places live within the body of a Purusottama month vrati. Anyone who faithfully performs Purusottama vrata will go to Goloka Vrndavana" – Valimiki Muni
What are the activities one should do in the Purusottama month?
The deity of Purusottama Month is Sri Radha -Krishna. Hence, one should worship Sri Radha Krishna by.

1. Chanting the holy names of the Lord
2. Offer ghee lamp every day
3. Offer flowers and Tulasi leaves 
4. Read daily Purusottama Yoga (15th Chapter) of Bhagavad Gita
5. Inspire others to chant krishna’s holy names
6. Giving Charity
7. Feeding the Cows
8. Visiting the holy places. 

During this Pandemic, although the movement is restricted, mercy of the Lord Gauranga cannot be restricted.  Perform Navadvipa Mandala Parikrama in Zoom and let the wave of Gauranga’s mercy flow towards you! 

One activity- 5 limbs of devotional service achieved- Hearing , chanting, worshipping the deity, visiting holy dham, Sadhu sanga! 
Glories of Navadvip Dham Parikrama
"If your heart is set on crossing beyond the ocean of repeated birth and death, if your heart relishes the sweet nectar of Krsna Sankirtana, and if your heart yearns to swim and sport in the ocean of pure love of Krsna, then please reside in Mayapur Dham"

Navadvipa Sataka 
Navadvipa Mandala Parikrama was initiated some 470 year ago with Lord Nityananda taking Srila Jiva Gosvami on a parikrama of the holy dham.

Nityananda Prabhu said to Jiva, “Although in the eyes of common people, Visvambhara took sannyasa and left Navadvipa to go elsewhere, actually My Gauranga never gives up Mayapur or Navadvipa. The devotees can perceive His daily lila. You, Jiva, will also see Gauranga dancing.  

Around Mayapur is beautiful Antardvipa, where Brahma received the darsana of Gauranga. O Jiva, if you want to see all this, please go on parikrama. It will be very beneficial for you”.

“Hearing the Lord’s words, Jiva, with tears in his eyes, fell flat like a stick at Nityananda Prabhu’s feet and requested, You will show real mercy on this unworthy wretch if You Yourself take me on parikrama.”  – Navadvipa Dhama Mahatmya, by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

In recent times, since its inception in 1918 by Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada, the Gaudiya Vaisnavas have been performing parikrama around Sri Navadvipa Mandala. 

In 1972, Srila Prabhupada took some of his disciples on parikrama of Sri Navadvipa Dham, and since that time ISKCON Mayapur has been performing Navadvipa parikrama.
Fulfilling the instructions of Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur to develop Sri Navadvipa Mandal Parikrama, for the pleasure of previous acharyas, ISKCON Mayapur conducts Annual Navadvipa Mandal Parikrama during Gaura Purnima festival. 

Devotees also visit Sri Mayapur in Purusottama month, damodar month to perform Navadvip dham Parikrama. 

This year is unique in that no Pandemic can stop the flow of Lord Gauranga’s mercy and in fact, for the first time, you can visit Navadvip dhama, sing the holy names of Lord, and worship Lord Gauranga and Nityananda, all from wherever you are. 

As rightly said by our Parikrama Commander, HH Jayapataka Swami- “Visit one holy site to another each day, Save your feet and leave the walk to zoom”!
