Sriman Mahaprabhu's Nityananda Stuti
His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
When Sriman Mahaprabhu was in Panihati, He sang in praise of Sri Nityananda Prabhu. Mahaprabhu is the Supreme Lord Himself, and Sri Nityananda Prabhu is non-different from Mahaprabhu—He manifests to serve Mahaprabhu, that is why it is said 'eki dehe dui rupa' (Their form is one, but there are two of them).
panihati-grame haila parama ananda
The village of Panihati became filled with ecstasy, for Lord Gaurachandra was personally present there.
raghava pandita-prati sri-gaurasundara
Sri Gaurasundara spoke some confidential topics to Raghava Pandita in a solitary place.
"raghava, tomare ami nija-gopya kai
"O Raghava, I have something confidential to tell you. Nityananda is nondifferent from Me.
ei nityananda yei karaya amare
"I tell you, I do whatever Nityananda wants Me to do.
amara sakala karma-nityananda-dvare
"I tell you frankly that all My activities are performed through Nityananda.
yei ami, se-i nityananda—bheda nai
"There is no difference between Myself and Nityananda. Everyone in your house will come to know this.
maha-yogesvare yaha paite durlabha
"From Nityananda you will easily obtain that which is rarely attained by the best of the mystic yogis.
eteke haiya tumi maha-savadhana
"Therefore you should very carefully serve Nityananda, knowing Him to be the Supreme Lord Himself."
If you look at a Deity and see stone, brass, etc. then you do not know what service is (i.e. if you try to serve, it will not be service). The Deity is not a doll, not an idol—the Deity is the Lord Himself! Krishna Himself played here with Nityananda Prabhu and then disappeared. Later, His Deity was found at Kadam-khandi. When you went for the parikrama, you saw the last place—there is Krishna's Deity in the temple, together with Jahnava and Vasuddha. Jahnava and Vasuddha found that Deity of Bankarai Krishna floating in the Yamuna.
tilarddheka nityanande dvesa yara rahe
"If somebody is envious of Nityananda, they can never become dear to Me, even if they worship Me constantly."
gopi-ganera sei prema kahe bhagavate
If you worship Nityananda, you can get the deepest transcendental love of gopis. Without Him, you can never attain it.
samsarera para haiya bhaktira sagare
Anyone who wants to cross the material ocean and merge in the ocean of devotional service must worship the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda.
If you are to cross this ocean of material existence, you must worship Nityananda Prabhu, Gurudev. You cannot make it without worshipping the Guru.
mukhe-o ye jana bale muni nityananda-dasa
"Those who say (even just lip-deep) that they are a servant of Nityananda Prabhu, will no doubt know the manifestation of My form."
madira yavani yadi nityananda dhare
"Even if Nityananda Prabhu takes a drunk lady by Her hand, He is always worshippable even for Lord Brahma."
'svatantra' kariya vede ye krsnere kaya
"You are able to sell Krishna, who is proclaimed as fully independent in the Vedas."
Nitai can sell Krishna to you! Do you understand this? He has such power!
prabhu kahe ei nityananda svarupere
The Lord says, "Those who have devotion and faith for this Nityananda Svarup, have devotion and faith for Me."
Mahaprabhu says, "Those have faith for Nityananda Prabhu, actually have faith in Me. You can never get Me without faith in Nityananda Prabhu." Without devotion to the Guru, without devotion to Nityananda Prabhu, you cannot get the Lord.
inhara charana, siva-brahmara vandita
Nityananda Prabhu goes door to door distributing to you that very divine love that Lord Siva and Lord Brahma pray for!
How can you recognise Nityananda Prabhu. You will not recognise Him by looking at Him with your eyes. Our eyes are blinded with material dust—we cannot see anything without our eyes. We see the Deity as an idol made of stone, wood, brass.
How beautiful these words are. Do you understand it? We must sing this kirtan very well.
[His Divine Grace chants, 'Nitai amara parama dayala.']
