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.

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.

How to Attain Krishna Prem?

🌿Attainment of love is the greatest achievement. Krishna Prem is that wealth without which even the so-called richest are also the poorest. We often wonder how we can attain this Krishna-prem. Do we have a clear answer to this crucial question- “How to attain Krishna Prem?”

🌿 The best answer to this question is given by Shrila Bhaktisiddhant Saraswati Thakur Prabhupad as follows,

“It is natural to develop love for those whom we serve. Serve Kṛṣṇa and you will become attached to Him.”

🌿 Now what is the best way to serve Krishna?

🌿 The best way to serve Krishna is to serve His devotees, especially, Sri Guru.

🌿 Who is the Guru of all Gurus and the topmost devotee?

🌿 Adi-Guru, Vaishnav-dham, Doyal NITAI

Therefore, Nitai Seva is the best way to attain Krishna Prem.

P.S. 🌿 What is the best way to serve Nitai?

🌿 Achar and Prachar of Nitailekhan and Nitai Nam-Lila Shravan-Kirtan.

Surrender and Love for Sri Guru

🌷  Devoid of any false ego and pride, one who is fully surrendered to Guru, Vaishnav, and Nitai, is truly a Mahatma and is worshipable for everyone.
🌷  May I become supremely fortunate by receiving the association and service of fully surrendered Nitaibhakts.
🌷 Catch hold of Guru and Nitai’s lotus feet so tightly that even if you are kicked away, you still remain clinging to them. If they apparently push you away it is for your own highest welfare. If you also push them away in return then it is your greatest loss.
🌷  When one possesses a favorable mood of surrender and love for Sri Guru, then one’s Sadhana and remembrance during one’s Sadhana naturally become effortless and spontaneous.

Nitai Bhakti will give you everything!

🌿🌷 It is a generally accepted rule that ‘one attains that, what one meditates on one-pointedly’. Let us analyse its applicability in regard to Nitai Bhakti which entails one-pointed focus on Nitai as the only means for sure-shot deliverance.

samsarera para hai’ bhaktira sagare
ye dubibe se bhajuk nitai-candere

Anyone who desires to cross to the farther shore of the ocean of birth and death, and then dive into the ocean of devotional service, should worship Nitai Chand.
(Cb. Adi 1.77)

🌿🌷 When one performs Nitai Bhakti, one not only attains Nitai but also gets accepted and embraced by Gaur Radha Krishna undoubtedly. This is what makes Nitai a special Lord who stands out among all other forms of Godhead. The foremost reason for this is that He is the Servitor Personality of Godhead. He is the topmost devotee as well as the topmost Lord completely non-different from Avatari Shri Krishna.

🌿🌷 Truth be told, even if one attains Nitai then that is not a small thing. It is equal to attaining Gaur-Krishna as they are completely non-different. Those who think that attainment of Nitai is inferior to that of Gaur-Krishna are themselves men of inferior spiritual quotient.

🌿🌷 Shrila Krishnadas Kaviraj Goswami (Kasturi Manjari) has written in Chaitanya-charitamrita Adi-lila 8.23 :

‘nityananda’ balite haya krsna-premodaya;
aulaya sakala anga,asru-ganga vaya.

“Simply by chanting the name ‘Nityananda’ one awakens his love for Krsna. Thus all his bodily limbs are agitated by ecstasy of love of God, and tears flow from his eyes like the waters of the Ganges.”

In the above verse it is quite clearly mentioned that one who talks about Nitai or chants His Name will get Krishna Prem even when one is not directly meditating on Radha Krishna. If Kasturi Manjari is writing like this that then what is left for further clarification?

🌿🌷 Also, Shrila Vrindavan das Thakur writes in Chaitanya Bhagawat Adi 9.218:

aharnisa caitanyera katha prabhu kaya
tan’re bhajile se caitanye bhakti haya

“Day and night Nitai speaks about Lord Chaitanya. A person who worships Nitai attains devotion to Lord Chaitanya.”

These (and many more) are 2 direct proofs of the fact that Gaur Radha Krishna are also obtained by Nitai Bhakti.

🌿🌷 Let us have a look at the indirect ones:

Narrotam das Thakur mentions that only by Nitai’s mercy can one attain Radha Krishna. Thus, He recommends us to hold the Lotus Feet of Nitai very tightly. How can you do that? By performing uninterrupted Nitai Bhajan. Holding very tightly means uninterrupted Bhajan.

🌿🌷 Narrotam das Thakur also writes in Sabarana Sri Gaura Mahima Song 1:

gaurāńga-gunete jhure, nitya-līlā tāre sphure,
se jana bhakati-adhikārī

If one appreciates the transcendental qualities of Lord Gauranga and feels ecstasy and sometimes cries, this process will reveal the eternal pastimes of Gaur Radha-Krsna in one’s heart and make one truly qualified for loving devotional service. Do you know who is the Abode of Lord Gauranga’s Transcendental qualities? Let us see how Advait Acharya glorifies Nitai in the 6th Chapter of Sri Nityananda-caritamrta,

tumi nityananda murti nityananda nama
murtimanta tumi caitanyera gunadhama

“Your name is Nityananda and indeed You are nityananda, eternal bliss. You are the personfied Abode of Shri Gauranga’s transcendental qualities.”

Considering both the above verses, it can be easily inferred that Gaur Radha Krishna’s eternal pastimes are revealed to even that person who feels ecstatic in Nitai Bhakti as Nitai is Himself the Abode of Gaur’s qualities.

🌿🌷 One more point needs to be made. If hypothetically one assumes that by Nitai Bhajan one will attain Nitai only then my question to you would be- “where will You attain Nitai?” Nitai resides in the Navadvip division of Golok along with Gauranga Mahaprabhu. I hope you can guess by now what I am trying to say. If one attains Nitai then it is but natural that one will attain Gaur as well as both of Them stay in the same Abode. It takes common sense to understand this. Isn’t it? As far as attainment of Radha Krishna is concerned, it can be ensured by offenseless chanting of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra, which is once again only possible by Nitai Bhakti.

🌿🌷 All things considered, the claim that one attains only Nitai by performing Nitai Bhakti is completely unfounded. Those who are too impatient to wait for the results can only give birth to such counterfactual allegations on Nitai Bhajan. All these allegations are already denied by the previous Acharyas. I do not understand why the evidences are seen but not really seen. It is true that love makes one blind. But the blindness that arises out of ignorance and envy is what causes our greatest loss. Neglecting Nitai Bhakti is the height of ignorance and disregarding Nitai Bhaktas is the pinnacle of envy.

🌿🌷 In the end, let us meditate on the following Nitai Bhakti Tattva secrets mercifully revealed by Shrila Vrindavan das Thakur in His Maha Audarya Granth Sri Chaitanya Bhagawat and Shrila Krishnadas Kaviraj Goswami in His Maha Madhurya Granth Sri Chaitanya Charitamrit,

A Humble Confession to Doyal Nitai

:pray: O Nitai! Who am I to cause the slightest pain, discomfort, or sadness to your beloved devotees? Is there any greater misuse of my free will than this? What a fool I am!

:pray: He Nitai! No matter how much I try to serve you or please you, everything is useless unless I learn to please your devotees and serve them wholeheartedly with utmost respect.

:pray: He Nitai! I think I aspire to attain your love. But if I were really serious then I would not maintain so much envy and hatred towards your devotees.

:pray: A Vaishnav is not supposed to give pain to any living entity. But I’m such a wretch that I dare to cause pain and inconvenience to the rarest and holiest Nitaibhakts.

:pray: My casual behavior towards your devotees shows how low is my regard and devotion for you Nitai.

:hibiscus: Narrotam das Thakhur says “Nitai pada sada karo ash”.. That is, 24*7 hanker for the attainment and service of Nitai’s lotus feet. I wish I could hanker like this for a single moment at least. But I have no time. I’m 24*7 engrossed in hankering for material pleasures and making unlimited plans for sense gratification and self-aggrandizement.
