How to tread this path of devotional service? Such persons attached to grha, home and hearth, can never develop such a desire. They will never think of it. Therefore, Gaurasundara Mahaprabhu gave an order to Nityananda Prabhu and Haridasa Thakura. Mahaprabhu is our only well-wishing friend. He is our supreme friend. He ordered Them, “Go to every doorstep and give this instruction." What instruction He gave? We are singing: prabhura ajnay, bhai, magi ei bhiksa, bolo krsna’ bhajo krsna, koro krsna-siksa...

1. For the welfare of the suffering souls, Sri Nityananda Mahajana being so merciful, opened a marketplace in Nadiya-Godrume. A marketplace for the Holy Name – nam-hatta. In that market place only the Holy Name is sold and purchased.

2. What is the price? sraddhavan jana he! sraddhavan jana he! Those who have faith in the Holy Name and faith in the words of sadhu, sastra, guru. This is the price! The faith! Only those persons are allowed to enter into that marketplace. They can sell and purchase the Holy Name. Therefore, Sri Nityananda Prabhu requests the faithful persons, those who have developed faith in the Holy Name, to let them come and take it!

Sri Nityananda Prabhu says, “This is the order of My Lord! My Prabhu! My Master! Therefore I have come to your doorstep, O bhai! I am a beggar! I am a beggar! I beg for these alms. ‘Utter the name of Krsna! Chant the name of Krsna! Do krsna-bhajana! Accept what Sri Krsna has taught us!’ These are the alms I am begging from you.”

3. Chant this Holy Name without offense. Chant the pure name then that is Sri Krsna. Sri Krsna is Mother, Sri Krsna is Father, Sri Krsna is wealth and asset, Sri Krsna is the Lord of my heart, Sri Krsna is life, soul, everything.

4. Give up all your bad dealings, habits and behavior and enter into krsna-samsara. The only relationship is with Sri Krsna, establish yourself in that relationship. Shower mercy on all the jivas seeing them as Sri Krsna’s and completely surrender unto the Holy Name of Sri Krsna. This is the essence of all dharma.

Jaya Sri Nityananda Prabhu ki jaya!
Patita-Pavana Sri Nitaicand ki jaya!
Patita-Uddhara Sri Nityananda ki jaya!
