Feel the Ecstasy by Nitainam Dhyan

Nitainam Dhyan for Harinam Ruchi

🌷Let sharing the unparalleled bliss of Nitainam, to one and all, be my only bliss life after life.

🌷  When the resolve to share Nitainam’s bliss resonates in my mind, the bliss that I experience in Nitainam expands in my heart and vice versa.
🌷 My dream is to sincerely and unassumingly assist my spiritual master in fulfilling his dream of sharing the bliss of Nitainam to millions and billions. Nothing else and nothing less than this is worth living for.
🌷 Add Nitailekhan to Japa and see the difference. Add Nitailekhan to Kirtan and see the difference. Add Nitailekhan to Shravan and see the difference. Add Nitailekhan to your life and see the difference!

🌷 Nitai Kirtan gives “height” to your Smaran.

Nitai Nam Dhyan adds “weight” to your Smaran.

🌷 I really look forward to Shravan and Kirtan nowadays. As I know after Nitainam Dhyan, both will be superb, charged with genuine spiritual sentiments.
🌷 I am falling in love with Nitainam Dhyan. It can be done anytime. And now anytime one can be with Nitai. One can really feel that Nitai is with him.
🌷 This Nitainam Dhyan is purely internal. It feels Nitai is very close when we visualize the strokes in our mind. The experience is amazing. It is like seeing Nitai, touching Nitai, embracing Nitai, falling at the lotus feet of Nitai, and much more.
🌷 Nitainam Dhyan is making my spiritual life more and more alive everyday.

Most Forgiving Master and Adi Guru

:hibiscus: From a mixture of milk and water, a Hansa (swan) drinks only milk and leaves the water.

And Nitai is Param-Hansa Shiromani. (69th name from 108 names of Nitai written by Shrila Nitaipreshthji Gurudev)

This means He is the topmost ignorer of all your bad qualities and disqualifications. He just accepts whatever little goodness is there in you and bestows upon you His boundless mercy based on that tiny goodness.

:hibiscus:O Nitai, you may fulfill all my desires. Or all my desires may remain unfulfilled. My only prayer to You is “keep me engaged in your devotional service till the end of my life without any expectation of wish fulfillment”.

:hibiscus: My major realisation of recent Navadvip Yatra with Nitai Sena was:

“I miss Ekachakra!!!!!!! Take me back!”

:hibiscus: Nitai Bhakti aisi karo ki Guru ko aap pe naaz ho.
Aur Guru Bhakti aisi karo ki Nitai ko aap pe naaz ho.

:hibiscus: It is true that in this age of Kali it is extremely difficult to find a real Guru. However, it is also true that when a disciple is ready, a Guru appears automatically. But the problem is that in this Kali Yuga, people themselves fail to become genuine seekers of a genuine Guru. It is a hopeless situation. That is why there is an urgent need to spread Nitai’s name all over. Nitai acts as the best Guru of even those who are not seeking any real spiritual progress.

To sum,

For genuine seekers, a genuine Guru appears.
For ignorant fools, Adi-Guru Nitai appears.

Nitai or Nityananda

By the mercy of Shrila Nitaipreshthji Bhaktiratna Sadhu Maharaj and Ekachakra Dham, I am gradually realizing that Nitai is a more prominent name than Nityananda. Following are some reasons which I would like to present for the same:

🌷 Nitai is a more prominent name than Nityananda as it fits very well with Nitai’s shaktis’ names. Which one sounds better, “Jahnava-Nityananda!” or “Jahnava-Nitai”? “Vasudha-Nityananda” or “Vasudha-Nitai”? That name which fits perfectly with the Shaktis’ names is surely more prominent. This also proves that Nityananda is obviously a more formal name and Nitai is a more intimate name.

🌷Also, Nityananda means “one” who is eternally (Nitya) blissful (Ananda). But who is that “one”? Nitai. From this we can understand that even the name Nityananda acts as a qualifier for the name Nitai. It acts like an adjective or a name that describes Nitai. It means that Nitai is Nityananda (eternally blissful). But Nityananda is not necessarily Nitai. Gaur-Krishna can also be addressed as eternally blissful (Nityananda). But Nitai is a specific name of Nitai only and it belongs exclusively to Him.

🌷 Nitai eternally resides in Ekachakra as its presiding Deity. And in Ekachakra He is addressed as “Nitai” by all His dear most associates. So obviously, Nitai loves to be addressed with this name much more than any other name.

🌷 The name Nityananda is mentioned in the Vayu Purana and the Ananta-Samhita of Atharva Veda. But the name Nitai is so confidential, powerful, and sweet, that it is not even mentioned in the Vedic scriptures.

🌷 Lastly, Nitai is short and sweet. Nityananda is a little longer.

Secret Desire of the Two Brothers

Lord Krishna (apparently) left Vrindavan at a very young age along with Lord Balaram. All Vraja-vasis experienced intense Viyog (separation) because of that. Krishna also felt the same Viyog from the Vraj-vasis. However, Balaram could not experience the same as Krishna always kept Him by His side. Not could Krishna experience separation from Lord Balaram like He felt from other Vraj-vasis. Hence, when Krishna came as Gaur, He fulfilled this desire also when He went to Puri along with His desire of relishing Radha-bhav. He sent Nitai to East Bengal for distributing Krishna-prem to one and all. And here in Puri, He experienced intense separation from Nitai. Simply by chanting Nitai’s name He would fall unconscious on the ground. And the same happened with Nitai when He was away from Gaur. He would shout “Aha re! Gauranga!” and He would fall down on the ground drenching His body with His own tears.

So this is a secret desire of both the brothers which got fulfilled in this Lila. In fact, in this most confidential Nitai Gaur Lila, the innermost desires of the Lords and all the associates got surprisingly fulfilled.

The Glorification of Unparalleled Love

निताइ! The Hare Krishna Mahamantra is replete with Radhey-Shyam’s love for each other. Radha’s love for Krishna and Krishna’s love for Radha. The Mahamantra is not just the glorification of Radha and Krishna, it is the glorification of their unparalleled love. It is overflowing with the divine couple’s madness for each other. We celebrate their eternal love by singing the Mahamantra! निताइ!

निताइ! We can’t imagine how grateful Jagai and Madhai must be to Nitai throughout their lives. Everyday they must be crying profusely in gratitude. Their every drop of tear was a testimonial of Nitai’s unparalleled mercy.  निताइ!

निताइ! Writing Nitai’s name in the air with the tip of your index finger is not only eco-friendly but also ego-friendly.
निताइ! Fortunate are those who have an inclination to serve. Blessed are those who get a chance to serve.

निताइ! Respect, service, and love have to be unconditional or else they cease to be what they are.

Ekachakra is Ekachakra!

Mahaprabhu told Nitai that He will come again as His son and asked Him to get married. This not only shows that He wanted to fully relish Nitai’s unparalleled Vatsalya but also the fact that He wanted to become the disciple and son of Anang Manjari (Vasudha and Jahnava) to relish complete subordination to Manjari bhav as well. Krishna always wants to serve the lotus feet of the Manjaris. By becoming a disciple of Jahnava Mata, in the form of Virachandra Prabhu, Gaur fulfilled this desire as well.

O mind! When will you stop running from one material desire to another material desire? When will you start rolling in the dust of Ekachakra Dham instead? Please stop running and start rolling!

Ekachakra is bliss. Ekachakra is mercy. Ekachakra is hope. Ekachakra is peace. Ekachakra is light. Ekachakra is love. Ekachakra is rasa. Ekachakra is affection. Ekachakra is protection. Ekachakra is solace. Ekachakra is Ekachakra! (You can compare Ekachakra only with Ekachakra)

What to speak of eternally conditioned souls, even Pandavas got residence in Radhakund in the form of Trees by first residing in Ekachakra and receiving Nitai’s mercy. This is another confidential proof of the fact that everyone gets Kund-vas by Nitai’s mercy only. Even Uddhav could not attain what Pandavas attained simply by the mercy of Nitai & His most merciful abode Ekachakra.

Nitai is an Ocean of Mercy

Joy Nitai!

Nitai is very merciful. We say this all the time. We hear this all the time. We have read it so many times that Nitai is very merciful, Nitai is so merciful. But now we say it very casually that Nitai is very merciful but can we really fathom the depth of His mercy? He is an ocean of mercy and when we try to ponder upon His merciful nature, we have no other option but to surrender. His mercy is so overwhelming. When we start feeling His mercy, I mean even a small small fraction of it, He is an ocean of mercy. You can never fathom, you can just say He is very merciful, but you cannot exactly define the word ‘very’ here. The word ‘very’ is very limited. It describes Nitai’s mercy in a very limited way.

So we can just keep on thinking and contemplating within your mind and heart about the mercy of Nitai. The depth because He is an Ocean of Mercy. karuna sindhu. And the more you take shelter of His name, the more you chant His name, you sing His name aloud in kirtana, you do Nitai Namlekhan, the more you realise how deep the ocean of mercy He is. How deep it is. You can actually enter the ocean, go deeper and deeper and you’ll be more surprised at every moment. You will realise His merciful nature with much more clarity.

In the beginning its just an abstract concept for you. It is very vague that yes yes, He is very merciful. The more you take shelter of His name, the more you realise His true.. the true nature of Nitai comes out from the name and you start getting overwhelmed. You get surprised and tears also start falling from your eyes because it is very natural because such kind of mercy is completely inconceivable. It is incomprehensible. Nobody can understand it. Nobody can conceive it. Nobody can even think of it, the kind of mercy Nitai possesses, bestows upon the fallen souls. The more you realise it, the more you will be overwhelmed and the more you will be attracted to Nitai, the more you will surrender to Nitai. You will take His shelter.

nitai-pada sada koro asa
narottama boro dukhi,
nitai more koro sukhi
rakho ranga-caranera pasa

So just like we say Krishna is rasaraj, He is an ocean of Rasa. We say it very casually but the more a devotee realises that, the more one falls in love with Krishna. The more he realises the rasa, the madhurya of Krishna. Similarly we say Nitai is karuna sindhu, He is an ocean of mercy but just saying is not enough, when you start realising that how merciful He actually is then that mercy attracts you so much that you fully surrender to Nitai. You realise that no one is going to actually deliver you other than Nitai. There is no other gati for you other than Nitai.

nitai charana vina nāhiko ashraya

There is no other shelter. So that is why just philosophy is not enough, practice is very important. When you actually take shelter of His name through Nitai Namlekhan, you practice it. Sadhana is also very important. You do Nitai kirtana, you practice then the philosophy becomes alive. Simply by understanding philosophy, by reading articles and posts or just knowing that Nitai is very merciful is… you know, that is also good but that is not enough. We have to practically realise that and for that you need to practice, you have to do sadhana. And you have to please the Nitai Bhaktas.

So philosophy alone won’t help you so much. You have to accompany it with practice also. Very important. And then you will see that philosophy helps practice and practice helps you to understand philosophy in a better way. They both are complementing each other. Philosophy improves practice and practice improves our philosophical understanding.

Joy Nitai!
