আর কবে নিতাইচাঁদ করুণা করিবে ।
সংসার-বাসনা মোর কবে তুচ্ছ হ'বে ॥

ara kabe nitaichand karuna karibe
samsara-vasana mora kabe tuchha ha'be

"When will Nitaichand give mercy to me? When will all my material desires become insignificant?"

('Prarthana' by Srila Narottam Das Thakur)

"When will Nityananda Prabhu give some mercy to me? When will the attachment to my family life, attachment to my material life be removed from my heart?"

Srila Vrindavan Das Thakur also told,

আমার প্রভুর প্রভু শ্রীগৌরসুন্দর ।
এ বড় ভরসা চিত্তে ধরি নিরন্তর ॥

amara prabhura prabhu sri-gaurasundar
e bada bharasa chitte dhari nirantara

"My Prabhu (my master) is Nityannda Prabhu, and His master is Gauranga Mahaprabhu. That is my great hope (bharasa)."

Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj Goswami also told in Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita,

এক 'মহাপ্রভু', আর 'প্রভু'—দুইজন ।
দুই প্রভু সেবে মহাপ্রভুর চরণ ॥

eka ‘mahaprabhu', ara 'prabhu' duijana
dui prabhu seve mahaprabhura charana

"There is one Supreme Personality of Godhead ('mahaprabhu'), Sri Gaurasundar, and there are two 'prabhus'—svayam prakas-vastu Nityananda Prabhu and svamsa Advaita Prabhu—both of them serve Chaitanya Mahaprabhu."

আর কবে নিতাইচাঁদ করুণা করিবে ।
সংসার-বাসনা মোর কবে তুচ্ছ হ'বে ॥

ara kabe nitaichand karuna karibe
samsara-vasana mora kabe tuchha ha'be

"When will Nitaichand give mercy to me? When will all my material desires become insignificant?"

('Prarthana' by Srila Narottam Das Thakur)

বিষয় ছাড়িয়া কবে শুদ্ধ হ'বে মন ।
কবে হাম হেরব শ্রীবৃন্দাবন ॥

visaya chhadiya kabe suddha habe mana,
kabe hama heraba sri-vridnavan

"When will my mind, leaving the material world, become clean? When will I see Sri Vrindavan?"

"When will my mind be purified? When will my material desires be removed? When will I be able to serve Sri Dham Virndavan with a clean mind?" That is the main thing for us. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur also wrote for Nityananda Prabhu's apperance day that our only hope is Sri Guru-Nityananda—if we serve Their lotus feet, we can increase our devotion, our spiritual life. That is the main thing about Nityananda Prabhu.

Satyavadi-gram: The Truthful Village
'Once, Narad Goswami came to visit this visva brahmanda in a human body. He was walking down a street when he came across one house...'

 

Samsara-davanala
'One who very carefully recites aloud this Sri Gurvastakam during the brahma-muhurta (the ninety-six minute period before sunrise) attains direct service to the Lord of Vrindavan at the end of life.'
শ্রীগুর্ব্বষ্টকম্

We do not have these qualities, but if we sing and sing these songs, then one day humility, tolerance and giving honour to others will come. That is our hope.

"HUMILITY, TOLERANCE, GIVING HONOUR TO OTHERS | HUMILITY, TOLERANCE, GIVING HONOUR TO OTHERS"
