Lord Nityananda is the deliverer of the fallen souls. Never serve anyone else except Him. Only a most foolish person unaware of the glories of Nityananda takes shelter of others. I consider such a person to be the most sinful in this world.
jaya nityananda caitanyera priyatama
tri jagate ara keha nahi toma sama
ananda kanda mahaprabhu premabhakti data
ye sebaye sei bhakti paye ta sarvatha
sarva jivera prabhu ! karila prasada
kshemila sakala maha maha aparadha
sri krishna caitanya deva nityananda nama
prithivira bhagya avatari anupama
All glories to Lord Nityananda, the dear most associate of Sri Gauranga! No one is equal to You in the three worlds. You are the reservoir of transcendental bliss who bestows prema-bhakti for Mahaprabhu. Those who serve You achieve pure devotional service. O Lord, You delivered all the fallen souls forgiving their grave offenses. Sri Krishna Caitanya and Sri Nityananda are the two matchless Lords who appeared for the good fortune of this world.
ara ki kahiba katha bhagye avadhi
sri caitanya nityananda mahagunanidhi
abhimana duranta tathi na pai krishna rati
iha jani nityananda karaha bhakati
yahara prasade pamara paila nistara
hena prabhu nama haya hauka galara
Who can describe the good fortune of the people of this world? Sri Gauranga and Sri Nityananda, the oceans of transcendental qualities, have descended to this world. False ego makes people devoid of attachment to Sri Krishna. Knowing this, worship Lord Nityananda. May the holy NAMES of these Lords, whose mercy delivered all the fallen souls, be the garland on your neck.
jaya jaya nityananda premamaya dhama
svabhave parama suddha nityananda nama
jagata tarana hetu yanra avatara
ye jana na bhaje sei papera akara
sri krishna caitanya nityananda eka deha
ihate niscaya kari kara eka leha
parananda maya duhun murati rasala
nitai caitanya prabhu srirama gopala
ihate karaye bhinna ati buddhi hina
ara na dekhiye tara vishnubhakti china
All glories to Lord Nityananda, the abode of love of God. The holy NAME of Nityananda is naturally supremely pure. To save the entire universe, He descended to this world. Those not worshipping Him are surely piles of sin. Sri Krishna Caitanya and Nityananda are one. Firmly believe this and take shelter of Them. Both Lords are full of transcendental bliss and devotional mellows. Lord Nityananda and Lord Gauranga are Lord Balarama and Lord Krishna. Those who reject this are certainly wretched fools. There is no hope for such fools to achieve devotional service to Krishna.
jaya jaya saci-suta ananda bihara
patita pavana nama vidita yanhara
nija nama diya jiva nistara karila
dena dayamaya prabhu bhajite narila
kaya vakyamane mora prabhura sharana
mora sama patita nahika tribhuvana
All glories to Saci-suta, the enjoyer of transcendental pastimes! His name is well known as patita-pavana, savior of the fallen. The Lord delivered all beings giving His own holy names. Unfortunate as I am, I did not worship such a merciful Lord. Now I take shelter of my Lord with body, mind, and speech. No one is more fallen than I in all the three worlds.
jaya jaya gauracandra bhuvana sundara
prakasaha pada mora hridaya bhitara
yata yata bihara karila gaudadese
sakala prakasa mora hauka bisheshe
All glories to Gauracandra, the most enchanting personality in the world! O Lord, please reveal Your lotus feet within my heart. Let all Your pastimes in Bengal manifest within my heart.
jaya jaya lakshmikanta tribhuvana natha
carane sarana mora hauka ekanta
ara avatare kahi nana-vidha dharma
kevala kahila ebe premabhakti marma
ihate yahara mati nahila ananda
aharei janiha papishtha maha andha
All glories to the husband of the goddess of fortune, Lord of the three worlds! Let me take shelter of Your lotus feet without deviation. In other incarnations, You gave various religious principles. But now You only prescribe loving devotional service. Anyone who is unhappy about this must be blinded by sinful reactions.
I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of all the Vaishnavas that they may overlook my offenses. Anyone who wants to cross beyond the ocean of material existence and merge into the ocean of devotional service MUST WORSHIP the LOTUS FEET OF NITAICANDRA. Sri Gaurasundara is the Lord of my Lord Nitai. I always keep this firm conviction in my heart.
Accepting Shri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Nityananda Prabhu as my life and soul, I,
Vrindavana dasa, sing the glories of Their lotus feet.
