Nityananda Prabhu: Sri Gurudev

Everything is coming by the grace of Sri Nityananda Prabhu. Because our Guru Maharaj has shown such deep attachment to Nityananda Prabhu’s lotus feet we feel that, and we are feeling Srila Guru Maharaj to be an Avatar of Nityananda Prabhu. Many things about Nityananda Prabhu’s Pastimes are written in the books and in the hearts of the devotees. The scripture confirms that Gurudev is always nondifferent from Nityananda Prabhu, that Nityananda-tattva is Guru-tattva. Even when Guru is Radharani, there also we can see Nityananda Prabhu’s mercy coming for others. Nitaiyera karuna habe, Vraje Radha-Krishna pabe, dhara Nitaiyera charana du’ khani. Nityananda Prabhu is a nondifferent form of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, and without the mercy of Nityananda Prabhu, no one will get the mercy of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. And without Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, no one will get entrance into Sri Sri Radha-Krishna’s Pastimes. If you want to serve Krishna under the guidance of Radharani, then you must surrender to Nityananda Prabhu. By the mercy of Nityananda Prabhu you will receive liberation, and not only liberation, prema-bhakti. Nityananda Prabhu will give you entrance into Vrndavan, a visa to Vraja Dham. Only then will you be able to enter. If you want that, then you must be surrendered to Nityananda Prabhu, and then in the very easiest way it will come to you. This is the easiest and only procedure to get the mercy of Lord Krishna.

We are very fortunate souls because we heard the divine Name of Nityananda Prabhu, and we are following, as possible by us, Nityananda Prabhu’s line. That is most clean and clear for the conditioned souls. We will get everything by the grace of Nityananda Prabhu and His associates. I must say to everyone: take shelter of the lotus feet of Nityananda Prabhu and you will have no fear from anywhere. We are all fallen souls, and our only hope is the mercy of Nityananda Prabhu.

saṁsārera pāra ha-i’ bhaktira sāgare
ye ḍubibe, se bhajuka nitāi-chā̐dere
(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Adi-khanda, 1.77)

«If anyone wants to leave their mundane attachment and defeat maya, if anyone wants Krishna-prema and Krishna-bhakti, then they must worship Nityananda Prabhu’s lotus feet.»

Nityananda Prabhu is more merciful than Mahaprabhu. Mahaprabhu’s conception was spread mainly by Nityananda Prabhu. He has given everything — full-fledged Krishna consciousness — to everyone. Actually Nityananda Prabhu’s full mercy is within sankirtan. The whole world is chanting the Holy Name — the Divine Name of Lord Krishna, the transcendental sound vibration form of the Lord, the Hare Krishna mahamantra — by His grace.

Here is one thing to understand: depending on your own position you will feel if you have Nityananda Prabhu’s mercy or not. If you will feel that within you, then you will be fully satisfied. By the grace of Nityananda Prabhu, you will get everything. I pray to Srila Guru Maharaj that he will mercifully give us the shelter of His lotus feet. What can I say more!
