The lotus feet of Nitai

Narottam Das Thakur also received Nityananda Prabhu’s full mercy, and he distributed that widely. Narottam Das Thakur was a prince in Bengal who became a servitor of his Guru Lokanath Das Goswami in Vrndavan. Narottam Das Thakur left everything to take shelter of the Lord. His expression was, «By Nityananda Prabhu’s blessings it is possible to leave all mundane attachments.» Narottam Das Thakur took the rudder of the ship of Nityananda Prabhu along with Virachandra Prabhu. His preaching was so glorious. Still we are seeing that by the preaching of Narottam Das Thakur everyone in Manipur and Assam sings the glories of Nityananda Prabhu and Mahaprabhu. All of Bengal was influenced by his preaching, and by Nityananda Prabhu’s mercy so many people became Vaisnavas and chanted the Holy Name of the Lord, the Hare Krishna mahamantra.

Narottam Das Thakur, Lochan Das Thakur, and other devotees composed many songs about Nityananda Prabhu. Narottam Das Thakur’s song Nitai-pada-kamala is a very general but is a very beautiful song. It is short and very simply expressed, but it is very palatable and gives us our main conception about Nityananda Prabhu. If you read and try to understand the meaning, you will understand the truth about Nityananda Prabhu.
