Lord Nityananda Prabhu-Trouble Maker

August 8, 2020 in Articles by Damaghosa dasa

Hare Krsna…..Hare Rama….
Lord Nityananda Prabhu was known as a trouble maker at times. He would throw His clothes around, standing sometimes naked before the devotees, toss His food into other rooms or on the floor, and sometimes reply in ways that made absolutely no sense to all others. When a pot of ghee was stolen by a crow from Mother Malinis kitchen he ordered the bird to return it, which it did.When she offered Him sweets, He would toss them about and then return them to the plate so as not to cause her distress.And yet He was always  bursting forth with divine happiness,  acting like an innocent young boy at times, even when Hewould jump into the Ganga river and chase crocodiles, much to the dismay of all others. He would chase the young gopi girls and ask them to marry Him, even though this was not possible according to the customs.  Nobody knew what He would do from moment to moment. And despite all this ,everyone loved Him just like they loved Nimai pandit, Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu. The Two Lords were inseparable, and They both began the sankirtan movement in Bengal India 500 years ago and predicted it would spread to every town and village on this earth-which has almost been done up to today.
I offer my humble obeisances to these two Divine Incarnations of Lord Krsna and Lord Balarama who have captured the attention of millions of  devotees in this age of kali.
