Service To Hari Guru & Vaishnavas By Nitai’s Grace

Service on the devotional platform descends from above, as a sign of special mercy. Krishna allows us to do favorable services for Hari, Guru and vaishnavas when He is pleased with our strong determination and staunch desire to render that service. Enthusiasm is the life of service. Enthusiasm is the requirement and qualification to render service. Unless we have “utsaha” in the services we are executing in our devotional life, Krishna does not grace us by granting further opportunities of rendering favorable service. This service does not come so cheaply and should never be taken lightly.

However one thing I have noticed with our Nitaichand is that whenever we are going through a very low, depressive state in bhakti, when we have practically no source of any motivation at all to do anything, Nitai showers us with even more service to pull us back up! Even though at that point of time we ourselves are reluctant to accept that opportunity of service because of our total lack of enthusiasm, Nitai still pushes us into it for the sake of our own ultimate benefit. He is like the doctor who forcibly feeds the patient medicine. For Nitai, there is no prerequisite of enthusiasm required to qualify to render service. Nitai facilitates us with the opportunity to serve Hari, Guru and Vaishnavas at all times being compassionate upon our fallen state and knowing that this is the only remedy for our material disease.

Nitai Pays Attention to Every Desire 

🌸 There are many desires we have which are often so subtle that we ourselves are not fully aware of their presence in our hearts, or we simply neglect or ignore these desires by suppressing them. Nitai fulfills even these tiniest and most insignificant desires of ours which we ourselves may have not known existed within us all along! Nitai finds all His pleasure in fulfilling all the hankerings of His devotees, even the smallest of the smallest desires. Nitai becomes so absorbed in this task of bringing pleasure to His devotees that He forgets even Himself…He becomes totally lost in granting the wishes of His dear ones.

Nitai doesn’t let go of any desire we have. As long as He sees that it will not cause us any harm and is beneficial for us, He grants every desire immediately. Nitai does not do this out of obligation because we are in His shelter, no. He does it out of love! Immense love. Like the love of an affectionate and doting father, who wants nothing but the happiness of his child…and to ensure that…fulfills every small desire his child has or could ever have. Nitai loves spoiling us! 😉😇

Joy Nitaaaaaaiiiiiiiii!

The Praneshwar of Avadhuta Chandra – Sri Gaurhari 

HAPPY GAUR PURNIMA!!!!!!

Joy Nitai Gaur!!!!! The day which is most dear to Sri Nityananda Prabhu and all the Vaishnavas has arrived for the deliverance of all living entities. Those who are supremely fortunate can still hear Nitaichand’s maddening roars to welcome His brother, which penetrate through the layers of this universe. Following is a humble effusion for the pleasure of Nitaichandra, an insignificant offering at His lotus feet.
— Sri Sri Nityananda Ramam arpanastu —
Chaitanya-Charitamrita Madhya lila 1.29:
‘chaitanya’ seva, ‘chaitanya’ gao,

lao ‘chaitanya’ nama

‘caitanye’ ye bhakti kare, sei mora prana

Today is a grand opportunity to become more dear to Nitai than His very own life by singing the wonderful virtues, qualities and pastimes of Lord Gauranga sundar, who brought to the whole world which was never ever given before – the rare gift of the most valuable treasure in Goloka, Golokera prema dhana harinama sankirtana. It is this wealth that Prabhu Nitaichandra has taken up the responsibility to distribute to the whole world without any discrimination for the pleasure of His master. Harinama pradam devam Avadhuta shiromanim!

This is the time to welcome that Supreme Lord who is the crest jewel of all His other forms as the Supreme Personality of Godhead–thus Mahaprabhu. Maha- the madanakhya mahabhava of Srimati Radharani which is the highest peak of divine love and the essence of hladini shakti, and Prabhu- referring to Swayam Rasaraj Krishna who is the abode and king of all Rasas. Maha-Prabhu, the unity of Rasaraj-Mahabhava. I offer my unlimited obeisances to that Supreme Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu who is combined form of ecstatic love and rasa. And the prema of this ecstatic form of Godhead is exactly what our Nityananda Raya is distributing to one and all. One can penetrate into the deepest mysteries of Gauranga’s appearance when one is graced by the merciful glance of Doyal Nitai!

Esho Sankirtana Pita esho esho he! “Oh Father of Sankirtan, please please come!” The only way of deliverance possible in the dark age of Kali is through taking shelter of the holy names. And what is the specialty of this Nam? It is prema nam, it contains all the inexhaustible love which is saturated within His own self. And the form of that holy name is Nitai Himself, sarva mantra swarupascha!
I worship that Gauranga who shines radiantly illuminating the whole creation with His incomparable and all-pervading effulgence! His bright, effulgent form itself speaks of His supreme position and majesty which can never be described otherwise even through the thousands of mouths of Sri Ananta dev. When will we behold such an exquisite form by Nitai’s grace?

I worship that Prema-grahi Janardana Gauranga who’s thirst to relish all the love His devotees have for Him is never quenched! My unlimited obeisances to that Gaurhari, who manifests five mouths when glorifying His devotees who are His life and soul (panchamukhe kore bhakta gunagaan) and who cannot be stopped once He starts glorifying! Hint hint* A reason why He never tires of establishing Nitai’s esoteric glories under any pretext. In the entire Caitanya Bhagavat, most of the super excellent glories of Nitai are spoken from the lotus mouth of Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu Himself.

I worship that Natkhat Nimai who’s sweet and playful mischief brings the whole Navadvipa to life! I worship that Sachi Dulal who is the apple of mother Sachi’s eye, and who’s name is Sachinandan, the name which gives pleasure to all His devotees especially Lord Nityananda. 🙂

I worship that Supreme Lord by looking at whose beautiful lotus face which defeats the exquisite beauty of millions of cupids, Mother Sachi sustains her life. I worship that Chaitanya Chandra, by glancing at whose radiant face even the moon god Soma hid his dull face in shame during the time of His appearance thus causing an eclipse. I worship that Gaura Nataraj who’s ecstatic dance is unmatched and cannot even be compared to the rasa dance (since the beauty of Radharani’s graceful nritya and Krishna’s enchanting movements have now combined in one form to increase the beauty manifolds)! I worship that Gauranga Mani, who is the Prananath of Gadadhar Pandit! I honor that Gaurahari who loves Advaita Acharya very dearly and who appeared from Goloka to this material world bound by his cries! I offer my respectful obeisances to that Gauranga who is so attached to Srivas Pandit that He is ready to become even a sweeper in His house out of intense love!

Lastly, I want to offer my obeisances to the Two Divine Brothers together, who are inseparable at all costs. Although utterly unqualified, I shamelessly say the following words anyway trying to follow in the footsteps of the great Acharya Vrindavan das Thakur,

Lord Nityananda is the worshippable Lord of this fallen soul who has no other recourse, and Sri Gaurangachand is the Lord and Master of His life. Thus trying to please both Prabhus, may I always worship Them both!

I worship that Supreme Lord who is the very life breath of Prabhu Nityananda! I worship that Supreme Lord who’s Holy names are dancing constantly on Sri Nityananda’s tongue! I admire the form of that Gaursundar, the elixir of whose beauty Nitai constantly drinks with His lotus eyes! I worship that Supreme Lord who is the be all and end all for His Boro Dadabhai Nitai! I worship that Gauranga Sundar who eternal residence is within Nitaichand’s heart! I worship that Gauranga Sundar who has accepted Nityananda’s divine body as His only residence! I remember that Sweet Lord Gauranga Rasaraj who dwells in the mad ecstasy of Rasakhanda Nityananda Ram! I worship that Gauranga who is always eager to loot all the love Nitai has in His heart–who wants to relish Nitai’s love in every single possible way, in every single rasa, in every single form!

I pray at Gauranga Mahaprabhu’s lotus feet that He may grant this fallen soul the strength and privilege to humbly assist in His mission of spreading Nitai’s name and glories. 🙏

🌷 Nitai Prapti Kabe Habe? 🌷

When will my heart become afflicted with acute impatience to attain Nitai Gunamani after hearing about His soul-stirring glories from the lotus mouth of my Gurudev, whose vani is imbued with intense love and hankering for Nitai?

When will the spontaneous attachment of my heart become bound in the nityalilas of Ekachakra Nayak by the shackles of Nitai shravanam? Being overwhelmed by the enchanting features of Sarva Sukhadham Nitaichandra and His pastimes, I will weep constantly falling at the lotus feet of my Spiritual Master.

When by the grace of param doyalu Sri Guruvarg and Nitai’s associates, will my natural disposition towards Sri Jahnava Vallabha awaken?

When will intense and unflinching loving attachment (rati) arise in my heart for Avadhuta Shiromani? Heno avatare jara rati na janmilo, lochan bole sei papi elo aar gelo!

The most fallen wretch,

Nitai Is Lila Shakti and Nitai Trayodashi Approaching

Nitai Tweets (@Nitai_Sevika)

🌷Krishna’s Sandhini Shakti is the potency which facilitates His lilas. This is Nitai! Thus Nitainam is also filled with Krishna’s lila shakti

🌷Our Acharyas are speaking literally when they say Lord Nitai is the storehouse of GaurKrsna lila. He is the lila shakti of the Supreme Lord!

🌷cic-sakti-ashraya tinho, karanera karana (CC Adi 5.42)

Nitai is the resting place of Krishna’s spiritual energies, the cause of all causes!

🌷Pastimes are bound to manifest when the Dham & lila shakti are present no? Nitai is both, so if He enters our heart, it becomes a lilasthali

🌷Process of attaining siddhi can be divided into 3 parts: sambandha, abhideya,prayojan. Nitainam is also 3: Ni, Ta and ee. Nitai gives all 3!

🌷There’s a reason Nitai Balaram appears first. Who makes us worthy to welcome the Lord of the creation?Who purifies the heart? Doyal Nitai!

🌷Just as Nitai grants us the qualification to approach Gauranga, celebrating Nitai Trayodasi prepares one to welcome Gaur on Gaur Purnima

🌷Our seriousness & strong intent to attain Krsna is tested by our enthusiasm to serve His pure devotee (Nitai!). *Nitai Trayodasi is coming 😉

🌷If Gaura sees you are anxious to welcome His boro dada, He will come standing at your door…sorry…bursting thru without any invitation.

Nitai is Gunamani!

🌺Of course Nitai is Gunamani! The one who is completely Guna-grahi (accepts only one’s good qualities) and cent percent adosha darashi must be a reservoir of good qualities only! Nitai is extraordinary especially because of this jewel-like quality which only He possesses! Where will you find another personality with this quality?

🌺Nitai is Gaur Guna Dham, the abode and repository of all of Gauranga’s astonishing qualities! This is attested to by Advaita Acharya Himself. The one who carries all of Gaur Krishna’s magnificent qualities and at the same possesses His own unique qualities of servitorship and devotion to the Lord must be GUNAMANI – the one and only jewel-like personality!

🌺Nitai is Gunamani, that means His qualities are so great that they overpower our own insurmountable demerits. He can deliver us by the power of His own qualities without having to depend on our own qualifications at all.

Gauranga’s Vehement Proclamation In Caitanya Bhagavat

I was reading Nitai’s kripa grantha, Sri Caitanya Bhagavat today and came across the following golden words spoken by our Sacinandan,

The Lord continued, “One who simply remembers My devotee, I take responsibility of maintaining him. The servitor of My servitor is dear to Me, and he certainly attains My shelter.” (CB Antya chapter 5)

This verse alone is the greatest incentive to give our heart and soul to worshipping Nitaichandra! Mahaprabhu is giving first class assurance. What more do we need? ‘That soul “certainly” attains My shelter.’ Gauranga is purposefully making such an emphatic statement, so that there is no room left for doubts.

If we simply remember Nitaichand, Gauranga Mahaprabhu personally takes the responsibility of looking after us. “The servitor of My servitor”…the highest implication of this can only bend towards the servants of Nitaisundar. Nitai as we all know is the Supreme Personality of “Servitor” Godhead. He is the conglomerate form of all the Lord’s servants. Every single service rendered to the Supreme Lord Sri Gauranga Krishna is emanating from Him. He is the source of that service. So how dear must the servants of Gauranga’s topmost servant be to Him? It is unfathomable.

And what makes this statement of Gauranga even more beautiful is that He is speaking these words to Srivas Pandit. Srivas Thakur and Malini devi serve Nitai day and night as their own beloved son. Nitai calls Srivas Thakur “baba” and addresses Malini devi as His mother. In the earlier chapters also it is mentioned how Gauranga Mahaprabhu roars in ecstasy and embraces Srivas to His chest when He hears from him about his staunch faith in Nitai and his unfaltering determination to serve Him. Mahaprabhu gives Him the boon that because he has so much faith in Nitai, even if the goddess of fortune ever has to go begging on the streets…still Srivas Thakur’s house will remain filled with all varieties of foodstuffs and there will never be a shortage of any sort. Mahaprabhu will personally supply everything. Ahhh, doesn’t that sound similar to the glorious statement Mahaprabhu has just done here in this verse?

So Srivas Pandit is actually a testimony to this verdict of Gauranga Mahaprabhu. He is an exemplary example of how Mahaprabhu awards one when they follow this confidential order of His to serve His dearmost servant. Srivas Thakur and his entire family received Gauranga’s unlimited mercy and blessings just by intimately serving His beloved Nitai’s lotus feet with full devotion.

I was just appreciating how these statements of Mahaprabhu are so congruent with Nitai Bhakti and suddenly BAM! There it came. The next part of the lila was Gauranga’s confidential instructions to Raghav Pandit, at whose home Nitai performed His phenomenal Kirtan miracles.

Gauranga Mahaprabhu said, “Raghava, I want to reveal to you confidentially that Nityananda Prabhu is nondifferent from Myself. You must understand that whatever Nityananda wants of Me I do it. Without sophistry I say that everything I do is through Nityananda. We are one and the same. That which is rarely attained by great mystics steeped in meditation is easily obtained from Lord Nityananda. Therefore, engage yourself with sincerety and deference in Nityananda’s service, knowing Him to be the Supreme Lord.”

Haha! The Lord is so miraculous! It felt like Gauranga Mahaprabhu was giving a vehement confirmation to my previous humble realization. As I read on, I soon remembered that this entire chapter is dedicated to Lord Nityananda’s glories specifically! Nitai always finds a way to get to us. Joy Joy Nitai! Joy Gauranga Sundar!
