«Dayal Nitai! Dayal Nitai!»

We have seen Srila Guru Maharaj show us that he is always depending on the mercy of Nityananda Prabhu. Up to his last days when Srila Guru Maharaj was in his zone, upstairs in his room or on his veranda, he was always chanting, «Dayal Nitai! Dayal Nitai!» Always his consciousness was under Nityananda Prabhu’s mercy, and he was always thinking of Nityananda Prabhu.

He forgot his position, everything. He was only asking for the mercy of Nityananda Prabhu, chanting, «Dayal Nitai! Dayal Nitai! Dayal Nitai!»

When Srila Guru Maharaj would show sickness, his servant Gaura Krishna Prabhu would try to give Srila Guru Maharaj some relief. He thought only Hari-nam could help and would offer Srila Guru Maharaj his japa-mala. He would ask, «Shall I give you your chanting beads? You will get some relief.»

Guru Maharaj replied, «No, no, no. Give these chanting beads to Govinda Maharaj. My only hope is Dayal Nitai!» It was very clear. He was always calling «Dayal Nitai! Dayal Nitai!» Lastly Guru Maharaj was completely attached to Nityananda Prabhu’s merciful glance. This was a miracle for me. Prabhupad Saraswati Thakur gave Srila Guru Maharaj exclusive charge of the Rupanuga line, but Srila Guru Maharaj said that without Nityananda Prabhu you will not be able to enter that line. After entering you can get everything, but you will not gain entrance without Nityananda Prabhu’s mercy.
