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.
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”.
My major realisation of recent Navadvip Yatra with Nitai Sena was:
“I miss Ekachakra!!!!!!! Take me back!”
Nitai Bhakti aisi karo ki Guru ko aap pe naaz ho.
Aur Guru Bhakti aisi karo ki Nitai ko aap pe naaz ho.
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.
For genuine seekers, a genuine Guru appears.
For ignorant fools, Adi-Guru Nitai appears.
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.
Worthless disciple of Shrila Bhaktiratna Sadhu Maharaj,
🌿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.
