About Nityananda Prabhu

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Lord Varahadev's Appearance day, morning class
Sri Ekachakra Dham, 24 February 2021, part 6
Translated from Bengali

 

It is written here very beautifully. I see they are offering the bhog already. I will let you go quickly, it is time to take prasadam—you fasted yesterday. Sri Narahari Thakur writes very beautifully about the stay of Pancha-pandav in Ekachakra, I will read it to you in the evening. And now I want to read you what Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj Goswami writes about the mercy of Sri Nityananda Prabhu (Cc, 1.5.156):

sri-chaitanya—sei krsna, nityananda—rama
nityananda purna kare chaitanyera kama

"Lord Caitanya is the same Lord Krishna, and Lord Nityananda is Lord Balarama. Lord Nityananda fulfills all of Lord Caitanya's desires."

Who fulfils the longing and hankering of Sri Chaitanya? Nityananda. Mahaprabhu told Him, "Nityananda, distribute Krishna-prema to this world! Preach the Holy Name of Krishna!" However, Nityananda Prabhu thought, "The people of this world will not understand the Holy Name of Krishna so easily. I would rather preach the Holy Name of Gauranga!"

ভজ গৌরাঙ্গ, কহ গৌরাঙ্গ, লহ গৌরাঙ্গের নাম রে
যে জন গৌরাঙ্গ ভজে, সেই আমার প্রাণ রে

bhaja gauranga, kaha gauranga, laha gaurangera nama re
ye jana gauranga bhaje, sei amara prana re

"Worship Gauranga! Say Gauranga! Take Gauranga's Name! Those who worship Gauranga are My heart and soul!"

That is why we always chant, "Guru Nityananda, Gaura Nityananda! Nitai Gauranga! Nitai Gaura!"

nityananda-mahima-sindhu ananta, apara
eka kana sparsi matra,—se krpa tanhara

"The ocean of Lord Nityananda's glories is infinite and unfathomable. Only by His mercy can I touch even a drop of it."

Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj Goswami says that Nityananda Prabhu's glory is unlimited; if you get a slightest touch of His mercy, you will understand His glory. Nityananda Prabhu freely scattered His mercy to all fallen souls. The Lord came to this world to deliver all fallen souls. He rescued all fallen souls. The Lord came to this world to deliver all fallen souls.

ara eka suna tanra krpara mahima
adhama jivere chadhaila urdhva-sima

Please listen to another glory of His mercy. He made a fallen living entity climb to the highest limit.

veda-guhya katha ei ayogya kahite
tathapi kahiye tanra krpa prakasite

To disclose it is not proper, for it should be kept as confidential as the Vedas, yet I shall speak of it to make His mercy known to all.

ullasa-upari lekhon tomara prasada
nityananda prabhu, mora ksama aparadha

O Lord Nityananda, I write of Your mercy out of great exultation. Please forgive me for my offenses.

["Prabhu, please forgive me if I become too audacious or mad writing about You."]

avadhuta gosanira eka bhrtya prema-dhama
minaketana ramadasa haya tanra nama

Lord Nityananda Prabhu had a servant named Sri Minaketan Ramadas, who was a reservoir of love.

[I told you yesterday about Minaketan Ramadas.]

amara alaye aho-ratra-sankirtana
tahate aila tenho pana nimantrana

At my house there was sankirtana day and night, and therefore he visited there, having been invited.

maha-prema-maya tinho vasila angane
sakala vaisnava tanra vandila charane

Absorbed in emotional love, he sat in my courtyard, and all the Vaisnavas bowed down at his feet.

namaskara karite, ka'ra uparete chade
preme ka're vamsi mare, kahake chapade

In a joyful mood of love of God he sometimes climbed upon the shoulder of someone offering obeisances, and sometimes he struck others with his flute or mildly slapped them.

ye nayana dekhite asru haya mane yara
sei netre avichchhinna vahe asru-dhara

When someone saw the eyes of Minaketan Ramadas, tears would automatically flow from his own eyes, for a constant shower of tears flowed from the eyes of Minaketan Ramadas.

kabhu kona ange dekhi pulaka-kadamba
eka ange jadya tanra, ara ange kampa

Sometimes there were eruptions of ecstasy like kadamba flowers on some parts of his body, and sometimes one limb would be stunned while another would be trembling.

nityananda bali' yabe karena hunkara
taha dekhi' lokera haya maha-chamatkara

Whenever he shouted aloud the name Nityananda, the people around him were filled with great wonder and astonishment.

gunarnava misra name eka vipra arya
sri-murti-nikate tenho kare seva-karya

One respectable brahmana named Sri Gunarnava Misra was serving the Deity.

angane asiya tenho na kaila sambhasa
taha dekhi' kruddha hana bale ramadasa

When Minaketan was seated in the yard, this brahmana did not offer him respect. Seeing this, Sri Ramadas became angry and spoke.

'ei ta' dvitiya suta romaharasana
baladeva dekhi' ye na kaila pratyudgama'

"Here I find the second Romaharsana-suta, who did not stand to show honor when he saw Lord Balarama."

"He behaved like an atheist—he does not have faith in Vaishnavs. That brahman considers himself so big."

eta bali' nache gaya, karaye santosa
krsna-karya kare vipra—na karila rosa

After saying this, he danced and sang to his heart's content, but the brahmana did not become angry, for he was then serving Lord Krishna.

utsavante gela tinho kariya prasada
mora bhrata-sane tanra kichhu haila vada

At the end of the festival Minaketan Ramadas went away, offering his blessings to everyone. At that time he had some controversy with my brother.

chaitanya-prabhute tanra sudrdha visvasa
nityananda-prati tanra visvasa-abhasa

My brother had firm faith in Lord Caitanya but only a dim glimmer of faith in Lord Nityananda.

He has faith in Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, but he has no faith in Nityananda Prabhu. I told you yesterday that this is half-hen logic.

iha jani' ramadasera duhkha ha-ila mane
tabe ta' bhratare ami karinu bhartsane

Knowing this, Sri Ramadas felt unhappy in his mind. I then rebuked my brother.

Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj Goswami was unhappy and chastised his brother.

dui bhai eka-tanu—samana-prakasa
nityananda na mana, tomara habe sarva-nasa

"These two brothers," I told him, "are like one body; They are identical manifestations. If you do not believe in Lord Nityananda, you will fall down.

"You give honour to Mahaprabhu, but you do not have any respect for Nityananda! You will be ruined!" In other words, this means, "You are giving respect to the Lord, but you do not give respect to the Guru."

ekete visvasa, anye na kara sammana
"ardha-kukkuti-nyaya" tomara pramana

"If you have faith in one but disrespect the other, your logic is like the logic of accepting half a hen.

kimva, donha na manina hao ta' pasanda
eke mani' are na mani,—ei-mata bhanda

"It would be better to be an atheist by slighting both brothers than a hypocrite by believing in one and slighting the other."

"If you give honour to One and do not give honour to the Other, then you are a hypocrite."

kruddha haiya vamsi bhangi' chale ramadasa
tat-kale amara bhratara haila sarva-nasa

Thus Sri Ramadas broke his flute in anger and went away, and at that time my brother fell down.

Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj Goswami Prabhu's brother fell down, his whole life was ruined because he had made Vaishnav-aparadh. He did not even write his brother's name—his brother became ruined.

ei ta' kahila tanra sevaka-prabhava
ara eka kahi tanra dayara svabhava

I have thus described the power of the servants of Lord Nityananda. Now I shall describe another characteristic of His mercy.

bhaike bhartsinu muni, lana ei guna
sei ratre prabhu more dila darasana

That night Lord Nityananda appeared to me in a dream because of my good quality in chastising my brother.

naihati-nikate 'jhamatapura' name grama
tanha svapne dekha dila nityananda-rama

In the village of Jhamatapura, which is near Naihati, Lord Nityananda appeared to me in a dream.

dandavat haiya ami padinu payete
nija-pada-padma prabhu dila mora mathe

I fell at His feet, offering my obeisances, and He then placed His own lotus feet upon my head.

'utha', 'utha' bali' more bale bara bara
uthi' tanra rupa dekhi' hainu chamatkara

"Arise! Get up!" He told me again and again. Upon rising, I was greatly astonished to see His beauty.

Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj Goswami is describing here the form of Sri Nityananda Prabhu that he saw:

syama-chikkana kanti, prakanda sarira
saksat kandarpa, yaichhe maha-malla-vira

He had a glossy blackish complexion, and His tall, strong, heroic stature made Him seem like Cupid himself.

Nityananda Prabhu was very tall. Gurudev told the size of the Deities that were to be installed here at the temple, and he said that Gaura must be 7'6 (228.6 cm) and Nitai 7'4 (223.5 cm).

suvalita hasta, pada, kamala-nayana
patta-vastra sire, patta-vastra paridhana

He had beautifully formed hands, arms and legs, and eyes like lotus flowers. He wore a silk cloth, with a silk turban on His head.

suvarna-kundala karne, svarnangada-vala
payete nupura baje, kanthe puspa-mala

He wore golden earrings on His ears, and golden armlets and bangles. He wore tinkling anklets on His feet and a garland of flowers around His neck.

chandana-lepita-anga, tilaka suthama
matta-gaja jini' mada-manthara payana

His body was anointed with sandalwood pulp, and He was nicely decorated with tilaka. His movements surpassed those of a maddened elephant.

koti-chandra jini' mukha ujjvala-varana
dadimba-bija-sama danta tambula-charvana

His face was more beautiful than millions upon millions of moons, and His teeth were like pomegranate seeds because of His chewing betel.

preme matta anga dahine-vame dole
'krsna' 'krsna' baliya gambhira bola bale

His body moved to and fro, right and left, for He was absorbed in ecstasy. He chanted "Krishna, Krishna" in a deep voice.

ranga-yasti haste dole yena matta simha
chari-pase vedi achhe charanete bhrnga

His red stick moving in His hand, He seemed like a maddened lion. All around the four sides of His feet were bumblebees.

parisada-gane dekhi' saba gopa-vese
'krsna' 'krsna' kahe sabe saprema avese

His devotees, dressed like cowherd boys, surrounded His feet like so many bees and also chanted "Krishna, Krishna," absorbed in ecstatic love.

singa vamsi bajaya keha, keha nache gaya
sevaka yogaya tambula, chamara dhulaya

Some of them played horns and flutes, and others danced and sang. Some of them offered betel nuts, and others waved camara fans about Him.

nityananda-svarupera dekhiya vaibhava
kiba rupa, guna, lila—alaukika saba

Thus I saw such opulence in Lord Nityananda Svarupa. His wonderful form, qualities and pastimes are all transcendental.

anande vihvala ami, kichhu nahi jani
tabe hasi' prabhu more kahilena vani

I was overwhelmed with transcendental ecstasy, not knowing anything else. Then Lord Nityananda smiled and spoke to me as follows.

are are krsnadasa, na karaha bhaya
vrndavane yaha,—tanha sarva labhya haya

"O my dear Krishna Das, do not be afraid. Go to Vrindavan, for there you will attain all things."

"Wake up, wake up, Krishna Das! Do not stay here in Jhamatpur. Come to Vrindavan, and you will get all benefit." These days, when servitors go to Vrindavan, do you know what they do there? They enjoy themselves earning and spending money from their own pocket. When you go to Vrindavan, you must spend money on feeding others, not on yourself. How can you practise Krishna consciousness like this? When you go to Vrindavan, you must practise Krishna consciousness. You must not go there to practise Maya consciousness.

If you practise Krishna consciousness without following your Guru, it will be practising Maya consciousness—you will tangled within illusory bondage. People go to Vrindavan to worship Radha Krishna, but you will not get any result if you do not worship Nityananda Prabhu. There are many people like this living in Vrindavan, especially at Govinda Kunda—they have some problem at the temple, and they leave everything and go to do their bhajan in Vrindavan. They go there and only think about their own stomaches, always think, "What will I eat?" It is all illusion. Gurudev said that the monkeys in Vrindavan were previously all those babajis who go to Vrindavan to earn money. Now you will go to Vrindavan and see that monkeys eat biscuits and drink Frooti mango juice! Why is it like this? Because those babajis worried about their own enjoyment. There are people called "chhadi-ghuray" [ছড়ি ঘোরায়, bossy people who like to brandish their stick, or, figuratively, lord it over and command others]. They come, chant kirtan for two hours and ask for a kg of rice and a certain amount of money. What they chant is not Hare Krishna—they chant to earn money.

অসাধুসঙ্গে ভাই কৃষ্ণনাম নাহি হয় ।

নামাক্ষর বাহিরায় বটে তবু নাম কভু নয় ॥

asadhu-sange bhai krsna-nama nahi haya
namaksara bahiraya bate tabu nama kabhu naya

"Brother, the Name of Krishna never appears in bad association: the letters of the Name may appear, but the Name never does."

(Sri Sri Prema-vivarta, 7.1)

So, continuing reading,

eta bali' prerila more hatasani diya
antardhana kaila prabhu nija-gana lana

After saying this, He directed me toward Vrindavan by waving His hand. Then He disappeared with His associates.

murchchhita ha-iya muni padinu bhumite
svapna-bhanga haila, dekhi, hanachhe prabhate

I fainted and fell to the ground, my dream broke, and when I regained consciousness I saw that morning had come.

ki dekhinu ki suninu, kariye vichara
prabhu-ajna haila vrndavana yaibara

I thought about what I had seen and heard and concluded that the Lord had ordered me to proceed to Vrindavan at once.

sei ksane vrndavane karinu gamana
prabhura krpate sukhe ainu vrndavana

That very second I started for Vrindavan, and by His mercy I reached there in great happiness.

jaya jaya nityananda, nityananda-rama
yanhara krpate painu vrndavana-dhama

All glory, all glory to Lord Nityananda Balarama, by whose mercy I have attained shelter in the transcendental abode of Vrindavan!

jaya jaya nityananda, jaya krpa-maya
yanha haite painu rupa-sanatanasraya

All glory, all glory to the merciful Lord Nityananda, by whose mercy I have attained shelter at the lotus feet of Sri Rupa and Sri Sanatana!

yanha haite painu raghunatha-mahasaya
yanha haite painu sri-svarupa-asraya

By His mercy I have attained the shelter of the great personality Sri Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, and by His mercy I have found the refuge of Sri Svarupa Damodara.

sanatana-krpaya painu bhaktira siddhanta
sri-rupa-krpaya painu bhakti-rasa-pranta

By the mercy of Sanatana Gosvami I have learned the final conclusions of devotional service, and by the grace of Sri Rupa Gosvami I have tasted the highest nectar of devotional service.

jaya jaya nityananda-charanaravinda
yanha haite painu sri-radha-govinda

All glory, all glory to the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda, by whose mercy I have attained Sri Radha-Govinda!

jagai madhai haite muni se papistha
purisera kita haite muni se laghistha

I am more sinful than Jagai and Madhai and even lower than the worms in the stool.

mora nama sune yei tara punya ksaya
mora nama laya yei tara papa haya

Anyone who hears my name loses the results of his pious activities. Anyone who utters my name becomes sinful.

How low he thinks of himself!

emana nirghrna more keba krpa kare
eka nityananda vinu jagat bhitare

Who in this world but Nityananda could show His mercy to such an abominable person as me?

preme matta nityananda krpa-avatara
uttama, adhama, kichhu na kare vichara

Because He is intoxicated by ecstatic love and is an incarnation of mercy, He does not distinguish between the good and the bad.

Nityananda Prabhu does not judge who is good and who is bad! He takes everyone on His lap!

ye age padaye, tare karaye nistara
ataeva nistarila mo-hena durachara

He delivers all those who fall down before Him. Therefore He has delivered such a sinful and fallen person as me.

mo-papisthe anilena sri-vrndavana
mo-hena adhame dila sri-rupa-charana

Although I am sinful and I am the most fallen, He has conferred upon me the lotus feet of Sri Rupa Gosvami.

sri-madana-gopala-sri-govinda-darasana
kahibara yogya nahe e-saba kathana

I am not fit to speak all these confidential words about my visiting Lord Madana Gopala and Lord Govinda.

vrndavana-purandara sri-madana-gopala
rasa-vilasi saksat vrajendra-kumara

Lord Madana Gopala, the chief Deity of Vrindavan, is the enjoyer of the rasa dance and is directly the son of the King of Vraja.

sri-radha-lalita-sange rasa-vilasa
manmatha-manmatha-rupe yanhara prakasa

He enjoys the rasa dance with Srimati Radharani, Sri Lalita and others. He manifests Himself as the Cupid of Cupids.

sva-madhurye lokera mana kare akarsana
dui pase radha lalita karena sevana

With Radha and Lalita serving Him on His two sides, He attracts the hearts of all by His own sweetness.

nityananda-daya more tanre dekhaila
sri-radha-madana-mohane prabhu kari' dila

The mercy of Lord Nityananda showed me Sri Madana-mohana and gave me Sri Madana-mohana as my Lord and master.

mo-adhame dila sri-govinda darasana
kahibara katha nahe akathya-kathana

He granted to one as low as me the sight of Lord Govinda. Words cannot describe this, nor is it fit to be disclosed.

vrndavane yoga-pithe kalpa-taru-vane
ratna-mandapa, tahe ratna-simhasane
sri-govinda vasiyachhena vrajendra-nandana
madhurya prakasi' karena jagat mohana

On an altar made of gems in the principal temple of Vrindavan, amidst a forest of desire trees, Lord Govinda, the son of the King of Vraja, sits upon a throne of gems and manifests His full glory and sweetness, thus enchanting the entire world.

vama-parsve sri-radhika sakhi-gana-sange
rasadika-lila prabhu kare kata range

By His left side is Srimati Radharani and Her personal friends. With them Lord Govinda enjoys the rasa-lila and many other pastimes.

yanra dhyana nija-loke kare padmasana
astadasaksara-mantre kare upasana

Lord Brahma, sitting on his lotus seat in his own abode, always meditates on Him and worships Him with the mantra consisting of eighteen syllables.

chaudda-bhuvane yanra sabe kare dhyana
vaikunthadi-pure yanra lila-guna gana

Everyone in the fourteen worlds meditates upon Him, and all the denizens of Vaikuntha sing of His qualities and pastimes.

yanra madhurite kare laksmi akarsana
rupa-gosani kariyachena se-rupa varnana

The goddess of fortune is attracted by His sweetness, which Srila Rupa Gosvami has described in this way:

smeram bhangi-traya-parichitam sachi-vistirna-drstim
vamsi-nyastadhara-kisalayam ujjvalam chandrakena
govindakhyam hari-tanum itah kesi-tirthopakanthe
ma preksisthas tava yadi sakhe bandhu-sange 'sti rangah

"My dear friend, if you are indeed attached to your worldly friends, do not look at the smiling face of Lord Govinda as He stands on the bank of the Yamuna at Kesighat. Casting sidelong glances, He places His flute to His lips, which seem like newly blossomed twigs. His transcendental body, bending in three places, appears very bright in the moonlight."

saksat vrajendra-suta ithe nahi ana
yeba ajne kare tanre pratima-hena jnana

Without a doubt He is directly the son of the King of Vraja. Only a fool considers Him a statue.

sei aparadhe tara nahika nistara
ghora narakete pade, ki baliba ara

For that offense, he cannot be liberated. Rather, he will fall into a terrible hellish condition. What more should I say?

We think Deities are dolls—we gossip and chat in front of the Deities. We think They are just dolls. What becomes of those who have such consciousness? They have no means of salvation—they will have no way to redeem their offence. The Lord is Vrajendranandan Himself! The Lord speaks, the Lord steals, the Lord gives witness, but we do not understand this. You all come to me asking me for mercy, but how can I give you mercy? The Lord is in your heart, He will give you His mercy. Do we have power to give mercy to anyone?

hena ye govinda prabhu, painu yanha haite
tanhara charana-krpa ke pare varnite

Therefore who can describe the mercy of the lotus feet of Him [Lord Nityananda] by whom I have attained the shelter of this Lord Govinda?

vrndavane vaise yata vaisnava-mandala
krsna-nama-parayana, parama-mangala

All the groups of Vaisnavas who live in Vrindavan are absorbed in chanting the all-auspicious name of Krishna.

yanra prana-dhana—nityananda-sri-chaitanya
radha-krsna-bhakti vine nahi jane anya

Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda are the life and soul of those Vaisnavas, who do not know anything but devotional service to Sri Sri Radha-Krishna.

se vaisnavera pada-renu, tara pada-chhaya
adhamere dila prabhu-nityananda-daya

The dust and shade of the lotus feet of the Vaisnavas have been granted to this fallen soul by the mercy of Lord Nityananda.

'tanha sarva labhya haya'—prabhura vachana
sei sutra—ei tara kaila vivarana

Lord Nityananda said, "In Vrindavan all things are possible." Here I have explained His brief statement in detail.

se saba painu ami vrndavane aya
sei saba labhya ei prabhura krpaya

I have attained all this by coming to Vrindavan, and this was made possible by the mercy of Lord Nityananda.

apanara katha likhi nirlajja ha-iya
nityananda-gune lekhaya unmatta kariya

I have described my own story without reservations. The attributes of Lord Nityananda, making me like a madman, force me to write these things.

nityananda-prabhura guna-mahima apara
'sahasra-vadane' sesa nahi paya yanra

The glories of Lord Nityananda's transcendental attributes are unfathomable. Even Lord Sesa, with His thousands of mouths, cannot find their limit.

sri-rupa-raghunatha-pade yara asa
chaitanya-charitamrta kahe krsnadasa

Praying at the lotus feet of Sri Rupa and Sri Raghunatha, always desiring their mercy, I, Krishna Das, narrate Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, following in their footsteps.

This is all written in the Adi part of Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita.

Be Wise
'Devotees gave me some advice and maya also gave me some advice, but I did not accept maya's advice. Actually what you do, what you accept and what you reject, depends upon you. You have some intelligence, and that intelligence comes through association...'

 

Namo namah tulasi maharani
'O fortunate Tulasi, by your performance of austerity you have become Sri Salagram's worshippable consort.'
নমো নমঃ তুলসী মহারাণি

It is very difficult to avoid maya, but anyhow—by hook or by crook—you must
engage yourself in the service to the Lord.
