Glories of Nitai’s Name From Shrimad Bhagawatam and Chaitanya Bhagawat

SB 5.25.11

yan-nāma śrutam anukīrtayed akasmād
ārto vā yadi patitaḥ pralambhanād vā
hanty aṁhaḥ sapadi nṛṇām aśeṣam anyaṁ
kaṁ śeṣād bhagavata āśrayen mumukṣuḥ

“Even if he be distressed or degraded, any person who chants the holy name of the Lord, having heard it from a bona fide spiritual master, is immediately purified. Even if he chants the Lord’s name jokingly or by chance, he and anyone who hears him are freed from all sins. Therefore how can anyone seeking disentanglement from the material clutches avoid chanting the name of Lord Śeṣa? Of whom else should one take shelter?”

If this is true for Lord Shesh then it is surely true for Lord Nitai as well. Why? Because:


sṛṣṭy-ādika sevā, — tāṅra ājñāra pālana
‘śeṣa’-rūpe kare kṛṣṇera vividha sevana

Nitai executes the orders of Lord Kṛṣṇa in the work of creation, and in the form of Lord Śeṣa He serves Kṛṣṇa in various ways. (CC Ādi 5.10)

saṅkarṣaṇaḥ kāraṇa-toya-śāyī
garbhoda-śāyī ca payo ’bdhi-śāyī
śeṣaś ca yasyāṁśa-kalāḥ sa nityā-
nandākhya-rāmaḥ śaraṇaṁ mamāstu

May Lord Nitai be the object of my constant remembrance. Saṅkarṣaṇa, Śeṣa Nāga and the Viṣṇus who lie on the Kāraṇa Ocean, Garbha Ocean and ocean of milk are His plenary portions and the portions of His plenary portions. (CC Ādi 5.7)

Gauranga Mahaprabhu glorified Nitai in the following manner in the 7th Chapter of the Antya Khand of Shri Chaitanya Bhagawat,

“ataeva tomare ye jane prìti kare, satya satya krsna kabhu na chadibe tare” 

“Therefore it is certainly true that Krsna will never leave anyone who becomes attached to You (Nitai).” 

It is quite clear from the above verse that those who are attached to Nitai can never be forsaken by Shri Krishna. When we write someone’s name repeatedly our attachment for that person increases. Thus, Nitai Vayulekhan is the simplest way to get attached to Nitai. And getting attached to Nitai is the simplest way to be accepted by Krishna. Krishna may reject someone who is attached to Krishna but He will never reject anyone who is attached to Nitai. That is why doing Nitai Vayulekhan along with the chanting of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra is in the greaest self interest for all devotees who never wish to be rejected by the Supreme Lord Krishna because of one’s natural tendency to make mistakes.

Joy Doyal निताइ !
