Sri Srimad Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja
We observe the holy appearance day of Patita-Pavana, Sri Sri Prema-Data Nitai, Nityananda Thakura whose mercy is limitless. Limitless mercy. There is no limit to it. If any limit is there to mercy, Nitai’s mercy is the last limit, doyar abadhi. Nitai amar doyar abadhi. Abadhi means limit. Nitai is the last limit of mercy. There is no limit to it. So can you get Nitai’s mercy?
1. O Brothers! Lord Nityananda is very, very merciful. Sri Nitai’s mercy is limitless, the last limit of mercy. He travels to all the villages and countries of the world and gives prema-dhana. He gives to one and all.
2. He is always cutting jokes with Sri Advaita Acarya. His whole body is made up of the love of Sriman Gauranga Mahaprabhu. He is always intoxicated with prema-rasa. An intoxicated person cannot walk. How does He walk? Like that! – dhuliya dhuliya chale. Always raising His arms and saying, Hari bol! Hari bol! Hari bol! And He always sheds tears from His two lotus eyes.
3. Nice tilaka is there on His forehead and curling hairs are there decorating, looking very nice. His hair is bound up with that red gunja on the head. His waist is like that of a lion’s and a blue belt is there. His feet look red – ranga pay. And He has put on nupura, a tinkling, tinkling sound is always there.
4. His whole form, whole demeanor, and features are all very beautiful. The whole world is enchanted by that beauty. He is always intoxicated in that prema-rasa; always smiling and laughing, “Haa! Haa! Haa! Haa! Haa!” Like that! – atta atta hasa! Such is Nityananda Rama. Vrndavan Dasa Thakura says, “That Nityananda Prabhu is my Prabhu. He is only full of pleasure, nothing else.”
Jaya Sri Nityananda Prabhu ki jaya!
Patita-Pavana Sri Nitaicand ki jaya!
Patita-Uddhara Sri Nityananda ki jaya!
