Sri Srimad Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja
When Krsna cames as Gaurana Mahaprabhu He freely gave krsna-prema, so He is wonderfully munificent, wonderfully merciful, wonderfully magnanimous. More than that is Nityananda Prabhu. Sri Nityananda Prabhu is more merciful, more magnanimous, more munificent than Gauranga Mahaprabhu. Without the mercy of Sri Nityananda, nobody can get the mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, you should understand it very well, nitaiyer karuna habe braje radha-krsna pabe. So Narottama Dasa Thakura, a famous vaisnava acarya, has written many songs on Nityananda Prabhu. We are singing that song, nitai-pada-kamala...
1. The lotus feet of Nitai are as cool as crores of moons. The whole universe gets peace by the shade of those lotus feet. Without the mercy of Nityananda, nobody can get Radha and Krsna, the aim of human life. Therefore catch hold of the two lotus feet of Nityananda Prabhu very tightly.
2. One who has not established a relationship with Nityananda, he is a two-legged animal. His whole life is finished. He cannot be said to be a human being. He never utters the name of ‘Nityananda.’ He is always immersed in enjoying material happiness and has forgotten Nitai. He may have acquired material scholarship and learning, but what is the value of such education? This will never help.
3. They are so puffed-up with their mundane education and scholarship. They are never humble at all. They have forgotten the lotus feet of Nitai because of their false ego and pride. They are completely under the clutches of maya. They accept untruth as truth thereby. If that Nityananda will shower His mercy upon someone, he must get Radha Krsna in Vrajabhumi. So catch hold of the two feet of Nityananda very tightly!
4. The lotus feet of Nityananda are eternally true. And those who are followers or servants of those lotus feet of Nityananda are also eternal. Always aspire for the lotus feet of Nityananda. Narottama Dasa Thakura says, “I am very, very distressed and an unhappy person. I am drowning in this dreadful ocean of material existence. O Nityananda Prabhu, please make me happy. Please keep me at Your lotus feet and make me happy.”
Jaya Sri Nityananda Prabhu ki jaya!
Patita-Pavana Sri Nitaicand ki jaya!
Patita-Uddhara Sri Nityananda ki jaya!
