Sriman Nityananda Prabhu's appearance day
29 January 2018, evening, Sri Ekachakra Dham

 

Nityananda Prabhu has shown many pastimes. Sometimes He would wear blue clothes, sometimes yellow clothes, sometime He would bangles on His wrists, necklace on His neck.

Srila Vrindavan Das Thakur wrote a very beautiful kirtan about Nityananda Prabhu. We can sing it. [At the end, His Divine Grace sings 'Nitai amara dayara avadhi'.]

Srila Vrindavan Das Thakur wrote Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat, but everyone says that the name is wrong—this book should have been named Sri Nityananda-bhagavat because Srila Vrindavan Das Thakur wrote more about Nityananda Prabhu. Where did he live when he wrote it? Denur. Nityananda Prabhu kept him there. Nityananda Prabhu is "akrodha-paramananda Nityananda Ray" but that time He got angry—why? For our benefit.

One time, Nityananda Prabhu was travelling to Sri Puri Dham from Nabadwip, Vrindavan Das Thakur was only thirteen years old at that time. He was the son of Narayani Devi, and a niece of Srivas Pandit (Srivas Pandit's in-laws' house was in Mamgachi, so Malini Devi was from there). Narayani Devi was married, but her husband's name is not mentioned anywhere in the scriptures.

When Mahaprabhu left Nabadwip for Puri, Nityananda Prabhu and Sivananda Sen would walk with the devotees to Puri. One time, when they came to Denur, they sat in a mango grove to take some rest. A worshipper of Nityananda Prabhu named Ramhari Chakravatri Mahasay was staying in that area. He always thought about Nityananda Prabhu, "When will my Guru give me his darsan? When will I be able to see my Guru?" Then, one morning he woke up and saw that there were so many sadhus gathered near his home. He came to see them and there, amidst the sadhus, he saw Nityananda Prabhu. He fell at His feet in obeisance and asked, "What is Your order, Prabhu? Please, come to my house." Nityananda Prabhu said, "Your house is small, and there are so many of us here. Bring rice, dal, etc. here, we will cook here and make a picnic."

After taking prasadam, Nityananda Prabhu told Vrindavan Das Thakur, "Give Me My thing." He did not tell the name, only said, "Give Me My thing," and Vrindavan Das Thakur, His servitor, understood what Nityananda Prabhu needed: he had got some hartaki (mouth freshener) from Nabadwip and kept some for the way. When he gave hartaki to Him, Nityananda Prabhu got angry—He said, "You will not be able to be a brahmachari, you a hoarder! You must stay here, make a family and preach about Gauranga Mahaprabhu!" Vrindavan Das Thakur stayed there and wrote Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat. The original manuscript written on palm leaves is still kept there. Our Gurudev's birthplace temple is nearby. Sripat Denur. Vrindavan Das Thakur lived there and served Nityananda Prabhu and Gauranga Prabhu' Deities. He was born in Mamgachi but lived in Sripat Denur.

Life's Necessity
'Sing the songs and read the translation to understand their meaning, chant the Holy Name constantly—when somebody chants, listens to lectures, reads Gurudev's lectures, I am very happy to see that, it gives me pleasure.'

 

Krsna haite chatur-mukha
'Nrhari Tirtha and Madhava Tirtha were also disciples in Madhva Acharya's line. Madhava Tirtha accepted the paramahamsa Aksobhya Tirtha as his disciple. Aksobhya Tirtha's disciple was Jaya Tirtha. Jaya Tirtha's servant was Jnanasindhu.'
