Nitai Makes Gaura Blissful

(Singing)Nitai Nitai Nitai Nitai
Gauranga Gauranga Gauranga Gauranga

When Nitai stands on the right side of Gauranga Mahaprabhu, then Mahaprabhu feels so complete, so special. He feels blessed to have Nitai on His right side. And when Nitai addresses Him as ‘His brother’, ‘bhratah’, then the transcendental ears of Gauranga Mahaprabhu, they attain perfection. Nitai addresses Mahaprabhu with so much affection, He has unparalleled affection for Gaura. Nitai is so affectionate towards Gauranga Mahaprabhu. Nitai wraps Mahaprabhu with His affection. Mahaprabhu is wrapped, covered, with the affection of Nitai. His bliss, Gauranga Mahaprabhu’s bliss knows no bounds when His Prananatha, when His dear most Nitai addresses Him as ‘Dear Brother’ ‘Bhaiya!’. When Nitai addresses Mahaprabhu as brother, Mahaprabhu’s bliss knows no bounds. You can’t imagine how blissful Gaura feels when Nitai says ‘Oh brother!’.

Nitai Nitai Nitai Nitai
Gauranga Gauranga Gauranga Gauranga

Joy Nitai!

Gaur Feels Incomplete Without Nitai

suvibhranam bhratuh kara sarasijam komalataram
mitho vaktralokocchalita paramananda hridayam
(Sri Nityanandashtakam by Srila Vrindavana Das Thakur)

Nitai Gaura Haribol!
Nitai Gaura Haribol!

Gauranga Mahaprabhu is poorna (complete). He is complete in Himself but still He feels apoorna (incomplete) when Nitai is not there with Him. He feels incomplete, the most complete Lord in the entire creation, He also feels incomplete without Nitai. And when He is with Nitai, His joy, His bliss knows no bounds, no limits. He is limitlessly blissful because He is with Nitai!! Poorna Lord ‘really’ becomes poorna when He holds the hand of His brother, when He looks affectionately into the eyes of His brother. He feels ‘really complete’ at that time whether it is in the form of Ananta-shesha, Shesha Nag, in different forms of Vishnu or it is Laxmana or it is Balrama or Nitai, the poorna Lord, He always relishes the company of His brother.

Gauranga Mahaprabhu when He was in Puri, it is mentioned in the first chapter of Prema Vilasa that He used to miss Nitai so much, He sent Nitai for the deliverance of all fallen souls, He sent Nitai on a mission, but here He used to chant Nitai’s name. It is mentioned Mahaprabhu would chant Nitai’s name and He would not get conscious before nine hours. He would get unconscious for almost nine hours after chanting Nitai’s name, He used to miss Nitai so much. He would chant Nitai’s name with tears in His eyes and then He would faint. He was feeling incomplete without Nitai, then how can we feel complete or satisfied without attaining the Lotus Feet of Nitai? The Lord is also craving for that! If the Supreme Lord, the poorna, the complete Lord is also incomplete, is also craving for Nitai’s association, then how can we ever become satisfied or content without attaining Nitai’s Lotus Feet? This is a small realisation I had during Nitainam Lekhan today evening.

Joy Nitai!

Get Full Time in Service of Lord by Vayulekhan

Raghunatha Das Goswami, Rati Manjari, when he met Nitai in Panihati, then Nitai told him -Oh Das Goswami! Tumi jao Puri Dhaam (Go to Puri Dham). Tumi jao Jagannatha Puri. Tumi meet your pranath Gauranga. All your obstacles will be taken care of by me. Prabhu Balram Ami Sarva Shakti Dhora. I am omnipotent. If I want you to go to Puri and meet your pran-nath Gauranga, then who can stop you? Your gaurds will stop you? Do you really think they are more powerful than me. I am Matta-simha. Won’t they be afraid of me if I will become a lion? I will not kill them by becoming a lion. I will just roar. (Roars) My hunkaar is kafi. My hunkaar is sufficient. I will say- Ha Gauranga! Ha Gauranga! Ha Gauranga! Ha Gauranga! When you will be running out of your home, the gaurds will try to catch you and I will provide such an ecstatic background music that while catching you they will faint in ecstacy. My background music will be like this.

Ha Gauranga! Ha Gauranga! Ha Gauranga! Ha Gauranga! Ha Gauranga!

My dear Vrindavana Das Thakur uses the word lion for me. But don’t think if I am a lion, I am going to be fatal. I am a lion, I roar. I roar the lord’s name so that everybody can hear, you know. In a jungle if a small animal will produce its sound the donkey will start braying or the monkey will start whooping or screeching then will all the animals of the jungle hear? Obviously no. But if a lion comes out of his den and he does “Haaaaunnn” (roars) then all the animals will hear. So just for the sake of preaching dear Raghunatha Das, I roar. I become a lion just to deliver as many as possible. Vrindavana Das Thakur uses the word lion. So there are only two possibilities. Either your gaurds will also start running towards Puri, as they will get so much love for Gauranga by listening to the background music. Or they will faint here. So in both the ways your work is done. You are definitely going to go to Puri. I will remove all the obstacles, don’t worry. I am the Lord of the full time devotees. If you want to get full time, just do Nitai Vayulekhan. You will very soon become full time.

akrodha paramananda nityananda raya
abhimana sunya nitai nagare bedaya
Nitai is akrodha. Completely devoid of anger. He is that Lord who will never get angry no matter what kind of sin or offense is committed by you. You don’t need to be God-fearing, when your Lord is Nitai. You can become God-loving because there is no consideration, of any offense or mistake or sin. When there is no such consideration then how can there be any fear? Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu wanted the masses, the living entities, to become God-loving and not God-fearing. But how can the living entities, the degraded living entities of Kali yug who are constant offenders and sinners rise above the state of God-fearfulness and become God-loving. In such a situation it is but natural to become God-fearing when you know that the God, the Supersoul, is residing in heart and He is observing your every thought, your intentions behind your actions, He is watching all your actions, listening to all your words and observing all your thoughts. When you are aware of the Supersoul’s functional position then how can you not be God-fearing? You are aware that the Lord is aware of all your sinful and offensive thoughts, words, and deeds, then how can you be not God-fearing? And as long as that fear resides in your heart how can you develop love of Godhead. This problem can only be solved when you come to know about Nitai who is akrodha. He is ready to overlook all your sinful deeds, words, and thoughts. Even though He is the Supersoul, even though He is the with witness of each and every thing you don’t need to fear him, because He is akrodha. Joy Nitai!

akrodha paramananda nityananda raya
abhimana sunya nitai nagare bedaya
Nitai is the supreme Lord of forgiveness. His forgiving nature is matchless, is unparalleled in the entire creation. Their are Lords who do not forgive you even after you repent for your mistakes. Their are some Lords who forgive you after you repent for your mistakes, but Nitai is completely different from everyone, from all Lords all forms of Godhead. Nitai is outstandingly forgiving. He forgives you even before you make the mistake. What to speak of repenting or atoning for the mistake. You have not even made the mistake and you are forgiven by Nitai. It is inconceivable, his forgiving nature. Whenever you hear the word “akrodha” you must remember Nitai because there is no personality so forgiving like Nitai.

Another meaning of akrodha is that Nitai’s anger if He gets angry sometimes, his anger is so harmless, is so blissful, is so pleasant. His anger is also pleasant, that is another meaning. When He was travelling all over India after leaving Ekachakra, He came across with some Buddhist monks, He asked them a question, but the Buddhist monks did not reply. They ignored Nitai’s question. So Nitai got angry from outside he was displaying anger and he kicked the Buddhist monks on their heads. The Buddhist monks they relished the kick of Nitai. And Srila Vrindavan das Thakur mentions that they were smiling even after receiving Nitai’s kick. They were not angry with Nitai, they were simply smiling. The Buddha gana, the Buddhist they went away, they ran away, but they were smiling. Such is the anger of Nitai. In Panihati, He was beating small children out of his own ecstasy but the children were laughing loudly after being beaten by Nitai. Although He beat them and bound them they would laugh loudly.

Another time when the Navadvipa basis were visiting Jagannath Puri for Rath Yatra, Shivanand Sen was making all arrangements and Nitai displayed some anger because of some delay and He kicked Shivanand Sen. Externally He was displaying that anger but Shivanand Sen got ecstatic after receiving Nitai’s kick. He started dancing. He couldn’t contain his joy. Have you ever witnessed, have you ever heard about such anger? An anger that is so delightful, so cheerful. Nitai was sometimes abusing Advaita Acharya, He was quarreling with Advaita Acharya, Advaita Acharya was relishing Nitai’s external angry words.

Well their is another meaning of “Akrodha” apart from this. This meaning is basically that Nitai is so transcendentally charged up with bliss, He’s Nityanand. Every inch of Nitai is Bliss

name nityananda tumi, rupe nityananda
ei tumi nityananda rama -murttimanta
(Sri Chaitanya Bhagavat, Madhya 12.18)
Nitai is bliss personified. So whenever He gets angry also the bliss gets transferred in that anger. So the ultimate result is bliss only. Even after He gets angry, the net result is bliss only. So this is one meaning of “Akrodha” .

Another meaning of “Akrodha” is that Nitai is Adi-guru, Jagat-guru. He is teaching us that you need not be “krodha shunya”. In the second sentence it is mentioned ” abhiman shunya” but you need not be “krodha shunya” because krodha can also be utilised in the service of the Lord. So Akrodha means that krodha which is utilised in the service of Lord. When someone criticises the devotees of the Lord then you get angry. That anger will deliver you. So as “Jagat-guru” is teaching us like we have “Karma and Akarma”. So “Akarma” does not means devoid of “Karma”. “Akarma” means that “Karma” which is devoid of bondage. So Akrodha basically can also mean that krodha which is devoid of material bondage, that krodha which will not give you negative result but will rather deliver you, will rather free you from the bondage of material world. That is another meaning of Akrodha and Nitai uses it sometimes in his pastimes as Balaram and also as Nitai sometimes externally He is getting angry but that is only for the service of the Lord and that anger is also so pleasant that the person who is receiving the anger of Nitai, He is getting delivered. So, He is not “krodha shunya” He is “Akrodha”, which means His krodha is transcendental. Akrodha means transcendental krodha, like Lord Hanuman can also be addressed as Akrodha even though He was getting angry most of the time during his pastimes but all that anger was for the service of Lord Ramachandra. So Hanuman can also be called Akrodha. But the forgiving nature of Nitai, it gives a completely different meaning of Akrodha. It takes Akrodha nature to such a high level, to the zenith, that nobody can go beyond. That is the highest form of transcendental anger or in one sense you can say the highest form of forgiveness. So their are multiple meanings of Akrodha. Hopefully by Srila Nitaipreshthji Gurudev’s mercy and Nitai’s mercy we will be discussing more meanings in future. Jaya akrodha paramananda nityananda raya.

Joy Nitai Vayulekhan. Joy Srila Gurudev.

 

Proof : Nitai Removes False Pride

                                
It is well understood by all that those who consider themselves fallen achieve the real mercy of Gaur-Krishna. They are always preferred much more by the Lord than those souls who are floating on the waves of ignorance by being puffed up with ahankar (false pride). Humilty is the real beauty of a devotee that attracts Gaur-Krishna.

Shrila Jagadananda Pandit writes in Prem Vivarta,

dīnere adhika dayā kare bhagavān

abhimāna dainya nāhi rahe eka-sthāna 

“The Lord bestows greater mercy upon those who are humble. Pride and humility cannot co-exist.” (Text 14, Chapter 10, Prema Vivarta)

                                 
In fact, considering oneself lower than a blade of grass is one of the most principal teachings of Shri Gauranga Mahaprabhu. However, the reality is that it is very difficult to achieve such a state of mind voluntarily. We are so much habitual of this false pride that it has become our second nature. We are very stubborn and we are simply not ready to improve. We need someone who can forcefully remove our false pride and make us dear to Gaur-Krishna. Who can do this other than Nitai? No one. Only Nitai is ready to forcefully make us humble because He is very eager to take us to Gaur-Krishna, in other words, He is very eager to save us from material existence and drown us in the ocean of pure love and bliss. We are not saying this, Shrila Jagadanand Pandit is saying this. He mentions in the same chapter that only Nitai can help us with this chronic disease of false pride. 

abhimāna-tyāga nityānandera dayā sāpekṣa

Giving up pride is dependent on Nityānanda’s mercy

āhā! prabhu nityānanda kabe karibe dayā

abhimāna chhāḍāñā more dibe pada-chhāyā

(Text 16, Chapter 10, Prem Vivarta)

“Ah! When will Nityānanda Prabhu be merciful to me? When will He force me to leave my pride and give me the shade of His feet?”  

Here the word chhāḍāñā indicates that if Nitai will be merciful upon us then He will forcefully remove our false pride. In our practical experience we can see that the devotees of Nitai are genuinely very humble. To sum, do Nitai Vayulekhan and receive Nitai’s mercy; become humble as a result, and finally receive Gaur-Krishna’s mercy.
