🌺 Shrila Bhaktirakshak Shridhar Goswami Maharaj gives a great example to describe the unique mercy of Nitai. He says that when you a go to a particular department of a hospital and they refuse to admit you then you go to another department. You go to that department which is more accommodating. Similarly, we all are suffering from material disease since time immemorial and we need proper treatment now. We may directly go to Gaur-Krishna but He may refuse to admit us. He has hundreds of valid reasons to reject us. However, Nitai is the most accommodating Lord. He does not refuse to treat any soul. Even if there are hundreds and thousands of reasons to reject someone, Nitai would invariably ignore all such reasons and embrace a soul who approaches Him.
🌺 When I was in the greatest need, it was Nitai only who extended His helping hand as a true friend. It was Nitai only who heard my prayers. Other Gods listen to prayers of only surrendered souls but Nitai hears the prayers of even the most rebellious souls. Even if someone says that I will not be able to obtain Radha-Krishna if I will focus too much on Nitai, I will continue to do that till my last breath. As they say, a friend in need is a friend indeed.
🌺 When I started doing Nitai bhakti, for the first time I felt that someone is really listening to my prayers. Before that all my prayers were ignored by the son of Maharaj Nanda as I did not qualify to be heard because of lack of surrender.

🌺 Material intoxicants damage us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually whereas the most intoxicating name of Nitai invigorates us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Which one do you want?
🌺 Krishna is ready to give us everything minus His pure devotion. Nitai is ready to give us everything plus pure devotion for Krishna.
🌺 Nitai bhakti is the greatest way of honoring (pujala) the path of spontaneous devotion (raga-patha) in the mood of awe and reverence (gaurava bhange) by maintaining a respectful distance from the esoteric pastimes of Gaur Radha Krishna and taking full shelter of the most merciful pastimes of the most magnanimous Lord Nitai. Nobody can forcefully enter the domain of Gaur Radha Krishna without being invited but by entering the universal domain of Nitai one naturally obtains an invitation from the inaccessible domain of Gaur Radha Krishna without any doubt or difficulty.
🌺 The topmost worship is the worship of the devotees of the Lord and the topmost devotee of the Lord is Nitai. Thus, when we worship Nitai we perform the tompost worship by worshipping the tompost devotee of the Lord. This is our secret! (It becomes double topmost)
Joy Doyal निताइ !
