Appearance Day of Lord Nityananda (Nityananda Trayodashi)

February 23, 2024 in Articles by Yasoda nandana dasa

“So far your questions are concerned. Nityananda is the principle of the Guru. So, the Gurudeva is the incarnation of Nityananda. Anyone strictly following the instruction of the Guru is following Nityananda. The price one has to pay if he wants to become Krsna conscious is that he must dedicate himself to following the order of the spiritual master, mahat seva. If the Spiritual Master is pleased with disciple then the blessings of Guru will be there. That is the best way to become Krsna conscious, and Krsna is non-different from Nityananda. You may pray to Lord Nityananda to help you become dedicated in the service of your Guru. Krsna consciousness cannot be achieved artificially. You should approach Nityananda Prabhu through your Spiritual Master.”
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, October 24, 1976)

“According to Narottama das Thakura, one has to worship the Lotus Feet of Nityananda, and by His Grace one is able to worship Lord Caitanya Who transfers us back to Godhead.”
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, February 20, 1969)


O my dear Prabhu Nityananda
I beg you hear the prayers of this demon
only by the mercy of Thy servant Prabhupada
my ignorance I’m begging to be leaving.

Bound up in a body that is lazy
I am condemned to be most crazy
I am a most mentally crippled begger
stuck in my bed I can’t get it together.

It feels impossible to obey my guru
who has been fully empowered by You
and so I don’t know what else I can do
but by his most expert advice pray to You..

Srila Prabhupada’s mercy flows from You
O most merciful Lord and dearest friend of all
You came here with Your brother Lord Gauranga
to deliver all the souls here from their terrible fall.

O Lord Nityandanda I beg the shelter of Thy Feet
the only cooling shelter from Maya’s desert heat
and the only means to be blessed to obey his grace
Srila Prabhupada in his books to save the human race.

I know in myself I’m devoid of qualifications
I am simply polluted by unlimited abominations
it is only by Prabhupada’s intervention on me
I am begging you Lord Nityananda to set me free.

With a montain of only sin resting on my head
I am finding it impossible to get up out of bed
this truth must be known and spoken at Thy feet
if all I can do is be honest O Lord unlimitedly sweet..

Out of control of my senses I commit only unlimited offences
so I beg You Lord Nityananda bless me to not commence this
I bow down to Thy feet with all the humility at my command
to bless me to be Thy servant by You grabing hold of Thy hand.

O my dear most merciful Lord Nityananda
You and Thy devotees are this world’s only hope
and ahead of them all is Your topmost Prabhupada
who You blessed with books to give the greatest scope.

I must live by them and make them known worldwide
only by Thy mercy by his instructions may I fully abide
so my dear Lord Nityananda please appear in all hearts
so this world wakes up for You and leaves all the dark.

This darkness of ignorance blinds all from God
to not know their duty through his grace Prabhupada
all must beg to You and Your all merciful brother
to wake up their love that now is completely covered..

Our love deep within is for every living being
for from Lord Krishna all existince does spring
and now only by Thy mecy this wisdom I bring
so please pour all Thy mercy on this sick fiend.

Please bless me to always cry Krishna’s holy names
so in Lord Sri Krishna’s service I am lovingly engaged
or I must remaiin Maya’s most helpless sinful slave
taking birth in this world with only unlimited graves.

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare
