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.

Drown in Bliss Everyday

bhakativinoda, kṛṣṇa-bhajane,
anakūla pāya jāhā

prati-dibase, parama-sukhe,
swīkāra koroye tāhā

So Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur in his bhajana śuddha-bhakata-caraṇa-reṇu, he writes this concluding statement. kṛṣṇa-bhajane, anakūla pāya jāhā. Whatever he finds favorable to Krishna bhajan, everyday prati-dibase, parama-sukhe, with the greatest happiness, he accepts all those activities which are favorable to his bhajana, which are favorable to his bhakti. This is very important. For a devotee, the only goal is to enhance his bhajana quantitatively and qualitatively. The sadhna, bhakti, the seva everything should increase in terms of quantity and in terms of quality. Whatever you find favorable, you get smarana by doing Nitainam Lekhan, by doing Nitai Kirtana, hearing and reading, chanting, association, then do all these things with the greatest happiness. This is the only activity in which you should spend all your time.

Always remain engaged, especially when you are not in dhama, then you cannot waste a single moment, because you are unprotected. If you give up your body outside dhama and you are not even doing bhajana, smarana, if your consciousness is not fixed in the Lord, then you are in a very risky position. So outside dhama you should be more cautious that you do not waste a single moment. You should be very afraid of death. Any moment it may come and then you will waste this precious human life. In the dhama one is more secure, and in dhama bhajana becomes very easy also. But when you are outside dhama, you must be alert, very conscious. prati-dibase, not even a single day you should compromise with your bhajan, your sadhana, your remembrance, your seva, no compromise, there is no room for that because you are in a very very risky position.

So with great delight, with great happiness, parama-sukhe, you must engage yourself in Krishna bhajana and in everything that leads to quantitative and qualitative enhancement of your bhajana. Accept everything that is favorable and reject everything that is unfavourable, then everyday your bliss will increase in bhajana, you will get more and more steadiness and strength to say no to the temptations of maya because you will be drowning in the bliss. You will be actually getting the higher taste which will allow you to give up the lower taste.

And your nishtha for bhakti, your nishtha for the higher taste will reflect in your words, will be reflected in your acharana, your behavior, and others around you will also be inspired to perform bhakti because they’ll feel that you are getting some higher taste, then they will also start hankering for it. Start aspiring for it. They will also start chanting the Hare Krishna Mahamantra, doing Nitainam Lekhan and kirtana, because they will see you directly in so much bliss, pratyaksha, that they will also get inspired.

Joy Nitai!

Serving the Soldiers of Nitai

🌺 Text 592, Chapter 5, Sri Chaitanya Bhagawat

nityananda-carana bhajaye ye ye jane 

sarva-vighna khande taha sabara smarane

“By remembering even those who worship the lotus feet of Nityananda, all obstacles are vanquished.”

This verse by Shrila Vrindavan das Thakur is so heart-warming and soul-stirring. It is extremely gladdening to know that, what to speak of Nitai, simply by remembering the Nitaisevaks, all the difficulties in one’e life will be removed. Now I realize how I am often saved from the greatest troubles simply by remembering Shrila Nitaipreshthji Gurudev who is constantly serving the Lotus Feet of Nitai Chand both internally as well as externally.

🌺 Serving the soldiers of Nitai Sena gives me real bliss. I’m eager to wash their clothes and cook for them as they are so dear to Nitai despite of some apparent faults which we are always busy finding. Those who will try to find faults in the dedicated and ever enthusiastic soldiers of Nitai will end up being the greatest losers.

🌺 I don’t wish to be a great preacher or famous Kathavyas. I wish to remain a humble Nitai Nam Sticker paster, a Nitai pamphlet distribution boy, and a book distributor.. This is the most effective and blissful engagement for an extremely egoistic person like me.
