Constantly Glorify Nitai


sahasravadana vandon prabhu-balarama yanhara sahasra-mukhe krsnayasodhama

“With a thousand tongues we should incessantly glorify the Supreme Lord Balarama (Nitai), because His thousand mouths as Ananta Sesa constantly glorify Lord Krishna.” (CB Adi-khanda 1.12)

Such a lovely verse. Shrila Vrindavan das Thakur explains us logically why and how we must glorify Nitai. He says that we must glorify Nitai because Nitai is constantly glorifying Krishna. And how we must glorify Him? We must glorify Nitai with a thousand tongues because He glorifies Krishna with His thousand mouths as Ananta Sesa. Wow! Such a transcendental Nitaimay logic. Now nobody can challenge why we glorify Nitai so much. Shrila Vrindavan das Thakur has defended us for all times to come with his authoritative and extraordinary logic.

CC Ādi 8.48

nityānanda-līlā-varṇane ha-ila āveśa
caitanyera śeṣa-līlā rahila avaśeṣa

He ecstatically described the pastimes of Lord Nityānanda, but the later pastimes of Caitanya Mahāprabhu remained untold.

👆Beautiful verse. Shrila Vrindavan das Thakur was well aware of Gauranga’s supreme position. He also knew how pleasing it was to Nitai to describe the glories of Gaur. Still He could not restrain himself from ecstatically glorifying Nitai in Chaitanya Bhagawat. He got such an avesh that even Gaur’s lila remained avasesa (untold). This is the kind of intoxication that Nitai gives. He wants everyone to worship Gaur but how is it possible to focus on anyone else after coming in touch with Nitai. Shrila Vrindavan das Thakur is proving by his own example that one cannot contain one’s spontaneous inclination towards glorifying Nitai even if that leads to less apparent glorification of Gaur Radha Krishna.

Joy Doyal निताइ !
