🌷 Bhaktivinoda Thakur elucidates in his Vaishnava Siddhanta Mala in the bhajan Dalalera Gita how if anyone desires to chant suddha madhuryamay Harinam, then they must take shelter of Nitaichand and recieve this gift from Him. Nitai is the only one who can freely impart suddha nam rasa to us fallen souls without any considerations. Aar nahiko kaaler bhoy aachandale den nam nitai doyamoy! He Himself is the broker of the holy name, khoda Nitai.
Harinama pradam devam avadhuta shiromanim.
Nitaivadis abide to this principle set by Bhaktivinoda Thakur to recieve pure nam from Nitai first.. by doing Nitai Vayulekhan before chanting Harinam. We invest all our faith (sraddha) in Nitai’s holy name, knowing that Nitai will surely open up His treasure house of suddha Harinam. Sraddha matra loye den parama ananda! By doing Airwriting of Nitai’s holy name, we are begging Doyal Nitai’s benediction to dive deep into nam rasa. If anyone has any doubts whether to why Nitai’s name only is being given so much emphasis, what is so special in His name…then that answer is also given by Bhaktivinoda Thakur. Even though I have already mentioned this earlier, I reiterate on this crucial point once again while adding a few other verses as well:
aar nahiko kalir bhoy aachandale den nam nitai doyamoy
“There is no more fear of the age of Kali. The merciful Nityananda gives the Holy Name to even the candalas.”
den suddha krishna-siksha
jati, dhana, vidya, bala na kore apeksha
“Nitai gives the pure teachings of Krsna to everyone and does not care for one’s birth, wealth, knowledge and strength.”
This is the specialty of Nitai. He gives this highest gift of suddha nam even to the most fallen of the fallen without considering a single disqualification. This all-merciful nature of Nitai is there at its peak in Nitai’s nam aksharas. Nitai’s holy name is the most merciful and liberal wish-fulfilling chintamani in the whole existence. Therefore, it is only Nitai’s nam syllables which can grant true love for Harinam which we have been aspiring for. This is why Bhaktivinoda Thakur proclaims at the end:
bhaktivinoda daki koy, nitai charana bina aar nahi ashraya
Bhaktivinoda calls out “Except for the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda there is no other shelter!”
There is no other shelter apart from Nitai’s lotus feet, and this shelter is achieved fully by devotedly airwriting His name. Hence, Nitai Vayulekhan is the only shelter for those who aspire to drown into the ever-increasing ocean of Goloker prema nam!
So our motto is: Nitai Vayulekhan bina aar nahi ashraya!
💎🌟 The marketplace of the holyname contains all the priceless gems & jewels. Goloker prema dhan Harinam Sankirtan. Nitai is the owner and treasurer of those goods! He liberally grants these treats to whoever does vayulekhan of His holy name (निताइ).
