    Srila Narottam Thakur very simply expressed Nitiyananda Prabhu's glories within that song:nitai-pada-kamala, koti-candra-susitalaje chayay jagata jurayheno nitai bine bhai, radha-krishna paite naidridha kori’ dharo nitair pay You all know almost this song. Maybe, meanings not clear for everyone, but song is very famous. And Srila Guru Maharaj, he also composed Nityananda Dvadashakam, on glorification poetry for Nityananda Prabhu. It is I am seeing the special each of Srila Guru Maharaj, what is very prominent to us. Not only Nityananda Prabhu. Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur ... glorification, past times, (explanation). Srila Krishnadas Babaji Maharaj's for whole life history, Bhaktivinod Thakur's. There is Bhaktivinod's Dvadashakam that also very much touchable part. His ontology and morfology ... existing in this mundane. But a whole Bhaktivinod Thakur's character substance come within that sloka ... And Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur was very happy with that. 0:03:02.But Vrindavan Das Thakur unlimited glorification giving us in Chaitanya Bhagavat. He composing, he is giving... he is giving us Sri Chaitanya Deva's pastimes as Chaitanya Bhagavat. But he's started Chaitanya Bhagavat and glorified Nityananda past. It is miracle sometimes someone is not very much attracted with that, some very few (there). But all the whole society of Chaitanya Dev - Rupa, Sanatan, (other) Goswami, they are too much attracted to it. Vrindavan Das Thakur's Chaitanya Bhagavat. But there we will see he started Chaitanya Lila, Mahaprabhu's pastimes, but first glorified Nityananda Prabhu so much. And that miraculously, that time many criticises come, I think so, about Nitiyananda Prabhu's divine character. He was Avadhut, he has no rules and (regulations) he is not going under rules and regulations. And he's in that divine form as Baladeva, not only that ....(sanskrit). And Guru Maharaj has given that explanation, that's also not one sloka - to one, two, three, four slokas, explanation. Krishnadas Kaviraj Goswami (in) Nitiyananda Prabhu glorification given few slokas and all is about the mundane manifestation and existing over the ... I surprised, Guru Maharaj when he started to give explanation about Nitiyananda Prabhu, he started with this sloka:0:06:20.yo 'nanto 'nanta-vaktrair niravadhi hari-samkirtanam samvidhatte yo va dhatte dharitrim sirasi niravadhi ksudra-dhuli kaneva yah sesas-chatra-sayasana-vasana-vidhaih sevate te yad-arthah sri-nityananda-candram bhaja bhaja satatam gaura-krsna-pradam tam /Shri Shriman Nityananda Dvadashakam, verse 1/This sloka started Guru Maharaj, because he also follow the main directives, main direction, from Vrindavan Das Thakur to Krishnadas Das Kaviraj Goswami and from Krishnadas Kaviraj Goswami to Srila Guru Maharaj. We are seeing that ... Actually I'm searching that Guru Maharaj's sloka, that he composed about Nitiyanda Prabhu. But unfortunately that time it is not composed by Guru Maharaj, but later composed ... later "Gaudiya darshan" there it is manifested, after that the.. use a book, there is manifested. Sripad Goswami Maharaj giving me now and he .. composed ... all, everything. And there, here and his Guru Maharaj's.. First sloka, second sloka also about the brahma-loka:amsair yah ksirasayi sakala bhuvanapah sarva jivantarastho yo va garbhodasayi dasa-sata-vadano veda-suktair vigitahbramandasesa garbha prakrti-pati-patir jiva-sanghasrayangahsri-nityananda-candram bhaja bhaja satatam gaura-krsna pradarh tam/Shri Shriman Nityananda Dvadashakam, verse 2/0:09:36.This style we'll see in Kaviraj Goswami's style. Kaviraj Goswami five sloka composed for Nitiyananda Prabhu ... And why it is? Because, he ll the divine form of Nitiyanda, what he is, that try to give us feelings, that feelings, but before that we not will feel mundane, anything about Nitiyanada Prabhu. For that he's character, composed within Paravyoma-Dham and Goloka Vrindavan, etcetera. Actually (Mula), Supreme personality of Godhead doesn't, it is coming down, down, down, down to Ksirodakasayi Visnu, sarvājīva ...live in everything, paramatma... But Nitiyanda, different form of Baladeva and Sankarsana. That wants to give consciousness to conditioned souls like us. For that they make creation some almost here, above mundane nature. 0:11:26. And we will see the... we will see in Caytanya Bhagavatam, Vrindavan Das Thakur giving some pastimes of Nityananda Prabhu as Balarama, and his childhood, he is doing so many pastimes, as Krishna-lila, before happened in Vrindavan. Than happening in Radha-desa and in Ekachakra-dham, village Ekachakra, there Nityananda born, taken birth. Padmati Devi, mother and Hadai Pandit Odzhha, father. And village Ekachakra-dham, later that village become Garbhavas name, and after that Virachandrapur. The son of Nitiyananda Prabhu, Virachadra Prabhu, in his name it was very famous. Still it is Virachandrapur known, and Garbhavas, Ekachakra. Gardhavas. It is ... by Sahajiya sampradaya, I forgot, maybe ... Babaji (sampradaya) that is (voice from audience) - Maybe. That was on ......., when Guru Maharaj going there, ...... very qualified man, and he become, immidiate become friend of Srila Guru Maharaj. And every year by order of Guru Maharaj I'm sending five rupees for Nityananda Prabhu's seva, and ... sending every year ....Srila Guru Maharaj. After ... it's gone to completely...0:14:43.What can I say more? That Nityananda Prabhu, his pastimes childhood very similar with Krishna-lila. He make with this children of Ekachakra, but then he was twelve years old, that time Madhavendra Puri come, ... This is ...his name, and we are thinking he's Mahavendra Puri, because Nityananda Prabhu, he was disciple of Madhavendra Puri. It is... he's shown his guru is Mahavendra Puri. And not only his guru is Madhavendra puri was Guru of Advaita Acharya also, and other many. Paramananda Puri, and Isvara Puri, many. Actually god brother of Isvara Puri, Niyananda Prabhu. But he was the protector of this society of Nityananda Prabhu, Caitanya Dev and he is, he was all, you know, Mahaprabhu himself, seeing Nityananda Prabhu's form given this sloka:madira javani jadi nityananda dharetathapi brahmara vandya kahila tomare(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Antya-khanda, 6.123)0:17:08.If Nityananda will come with some (voice from audience - "drunken lady") - Yeah, and another, and one bottle of wine, but when he is moving in the road, if Brahma will see he will pay ... dandavat to Nityananda Prabhu. This is the Nityananda Prabhu's divine character. One day Nityananda Prabhu went to Sachi Mata's house naked, like child. Many days it is happened. He is living in sometimes Shrivas Pandit house and taking breast milk from Shrivas pandit wife. So many, many miracle character, he is seeing the crocodile in the Ganga, moving, he jumped and crocodile (as he)...(career) going this and this. On the road seeing the ox, bull and jumped over the bull and going, like that, many miracles like that, and so much strength...0:19:10. And Nityananda Prabhu going to... (no, not), that Nityananda Prabhu's house one sannyasi went, we are thinking he is Madhavendra Puri and seeing Nityananda, he was fainted, and he can not leave Nityananda Prabhu, (that's his) and told Hadai Pandit, "I want to go several .., give your son as my servitor, as... associate. But that time religion was very strong within mind of everyone. "The sannyasi prayed, "We must fulfil his desire," that was Hadai Pandit thinking, but only one son, and son like Nityananda, he can not leave that. But Hadai Pandit was like mad, and he can not say "No, I can not give Nityananda", he given Nityananda to that sannyasi. Loke bale "hado ojha haila pagala (Cb 2.3.98). After giving Nityananda Hadai pandit become mad. But he fulfilled desire of sannyasi. And Nityananda, he Avadhut from childhood, he did not care, he went with that sannyasi at whole India, he toured with that sannyasi, then Nityananda knows everywhere, some area (will)... The citizen of that, they feel Nityananda Prabhu's presence there. 0:21.35.Anyhow, when Madhavendra Puri disappeared, that time Isvara Ruri served so much, and Nityananda Prabu was there, and that sloka:ayi dīna-dayārdra nātha hemathurā-nātha kadāvalokyasehṛdayaṁ tvad-aloka-kātaraṁdayita bhrāmyati kiṁ karomy aham(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita: Madhya-lila, 4.197)This sloka is the honour given Kavitaj Goswami, and supreme, (super honour) of this sloka Kaviraj Goswami told:ei śloka kahiyāchhena rādhā-ṭhākurāṇītā̐ra kṛpāya sphuriyāchhe mādhavendra-vāṇī(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita: Madhya-lila, 4.194)kibā gaurachandra ihā kare āsvādanaihā āsvādite āra nāhi chauṭha-jana(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita: Madhya-lila, 4.195)0:22:58.No fourth man can understand and taste this sloka, but Radharani herself, ... Hare Krsna!(talks bengali)Anyhow, that Nityananda Prabhu after peligrimes and lastly he went to Vrindavan and he said, " I want Vrindanan, I'm searching Krishna, they told Krishna not here, Krisha born in Nabadvip. Then Nityananda Prabhu come in Nabadvip that time Mahaprabhu already manifested as ... Bhagavan, Caitanya... Bhagavan, Gaura Sundar. Nityananda come in Nabadvip and he direct not going to Mahaprabhu's house. He hiding, hiding Nandan Acharya bhavan, Nandan Acharya is Mahaprabhu very dear follower, and hiding there and told Nandan Acharya not to tell anything, "I want to see what Krishna will do with me. He appeared here, I know". And Mahaprabhu Chaitanya Dev, he also told story to his followers, "Last night I have seen tala-dhvaja eka ratha—samsarera sara, Nityananda Prabhu in chariot of Baladev", that dream has got Mahaprabhu, like Baladev, one person come here with that ...(sanskrit) You see some mahapurusa come to get, some here in Nabadwip he's living, you search him". That Nityananda Prabhu hiding and Mahaprabhu's devotee-followers they search for Nityananda..., but..., they can not got it... Then Nimai Prabhu himself told, Nityananda is very much powerfull for hiding himself, then I shall walk at his. Then he direct going to Nandan Acharya bhavan and there in veranda Nityananda Prabhu sitted and Mahaprabhu...Nityananda sitted and Niyananda sing, "Mahaprabhu, come!", then they both embraced and fainted... after that Nityananda-lila happened there, and big sankirtan happened. And Nityananda sing that to Mahaprabhu, and Mahaprabhu embraced Nityananda with full love, affection, honour, everything. And taking Nityananda Prabhu to his house from Nanadana Acharya bhavan and from that day started maha-sankirtan, what for Mahaprabhu happier0:27:32.krsna-varnam tvisakrsnam sangopangastra-parsadamyajnaih sankirtana-prayair yajanti hi su-medhasah(11.5.32)cheto-darpana-marjanam bhava-maha-davagni-nirvapanamsreyah-kairava-chandrika-vitaranam vidya-vadhu-jivanamanandambudhi-vardhanam prati-padam purnamritasvadanamsarvatma-snapanam param vijayate sri-krsna-sankirtanam(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita: Antya-lila, 20.12)0:28:25.Param vijayate sri-krsna-sankirtanam started with Nityananda Prabhu, and so much gloryfied way it happened day by day in Nabadwip-dham. Haridas Thakur joined ..., Adveita Acharya joined and others, all joined now Nityananda gang, and Mahaprabhu publicely wants to preach Krishna consciousness from that day. And he told, he ordered to Nityananda and Haridas, he've choosen that ... like that, (this day) can peach widely, whole-heartedely, affectionately and lovely way Krishna Consciouness. Then Mahaprabhu said to Haridas and Nityananda:suno suno nityananda! suno haridasa!sarvatra amara ajna karaha prakasaprati ghare ghare giya kara ei bhiksa'bolo krsna bhaja krsna krsna kara siksa(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Madhya-khanda, 13.8-11) 0:29:53.Mahabrabhu told, ordered to Haridas and Nityananda Prabhu, "Go, go door to door and preach Krishna Consciousness:krsna mata krsna pita krsna dhana prana(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Madhya-khanda, 13.43)jagatera pita—krsna, ye na bhaje bapapitri-drohi patakira janma-janma tapa(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Madhya-khanda, 1.202)etcetera, etcerera, so many things in the scriptures. Vrindavan Das Thakur and Srila Kaviraj Goswami, both, giving that consciousness to us, Mahaprabhu's preaching style, as tell them Haridas0:30:33.Nityananda Prabhu was desparate, have seeing in the road that Jagai and Madhai, they sitted somewhere in the road, and drinking the wine, etcetera. And Nityananda told to Haridas, "This is perfect person to clean them with harinam-sankirtan. And Haridas, wise man, he told not to call them, "All world is open for you, why you want going to them? You can preach Mahaprabhu's conception to everyone,you leave them, they're very bad", etcetera, etcetera. Nityananda Prabhu said, "This is perfect target, I must rescue them from that. Then, Mahaprabhu's glory will more and more, exulted (way) all othe the world". Anyhow, Haridas told, "You go, I shall not". And Nityananda Prabhu told, "You must go with me".0:32:12. Then cause to Jagai Madhai and told them, "Jagai Madhai, you was doing this and this, but you chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra you will be rescued", and Jagai Madhai was drunk, they given said to them: "You come for teaching me, ... I teach you!". And Haridas Thakur ran, ... but Jagai Madhai can not ran, they can not take them. Ana Nityananda Prabhu and Haridas came back, and told to Mahaprabhu, "This is fact, today anyhow I saved my life, I shall not go with that pagal (crazy)". Mahaprabhu smiled, Mahaprabhu knows after that will be.0:33:21. Then next day Nityananda again, make target and, Haridas, is behind.. he took Nityananda and told that, and Madhai was more drunk and he told this, "Today, you come again? Wait, I shall...". And there was a clay, broken clay pot and throw to Nityananda, and his head cut, and blood falling. And Nityananda prabhu said: "Ok, ok, no problem. You hit me, but I shall excuse that. I forgive, I shall give forgive. You chant Hare Krisha Mahamantra, you will be rescued, no doubt!". Mahaprabhu said it: 'Bolo Krishna bhaja Krishna koro Krishna siksa', and you take this religion from Mahaprabhu. 0:34:42 And again, ...you are so energetic, ... I shall teach you". At that time Madhai (from audience - Jagai) want to hit, and Jagai taken his hand, and told: "Why this pagal sadhu, you want chasing him? Not necessary ... hit to him. Leave it!. Nonsence". But in the meantime Haridas Thakur, he gone back, and news gone to Mahapabhu, this happen. And Mahaprabhu with full battalion, he come. "Chakra, chakra, chakra'—Prabhu dake ghane ghane", (Cb, Madhya-khanda, 13.185)' And everyone seeing, chakra is following Mahaprabhu. And there, place of Jagai Madhai, Mahaprabhu going there, Nityananda prabhu intoxicated mood with Krisha-prema. And Mahaprabhu chastised Jagai and Madhai./.../0:36:16. Then Mahaprabhu embraced Jagai, and Madhai told, "We have done so much sinful work but Jagai had got releif from all these sins. And why not me?". And Nityananda Prabhu said... the Mahaprabhu, "You forget the offences?". And Mahaprabhu said to Jagai Madhai, "If Nityananda prabhu will give forgiveness, you will get that result of Hare Krishna Mahamantra ..., and embraced Jagai, and Nityananada Prabhu embraced Madhai. And their all the sin gone, and they become pure devotee, as Nityananda Prabhu and Mahaprabhu. And they are crying so much, "We've done much wrong", etc, etc, etc. And Mahaprabhu also said then, Jagai Madhai"tora ara na karis papa"jagai madhai bole,—"ara nare vapa"(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Madhya-khanda, 13.225))0:37:53. Mahaprabhu told them not to do again what you have done before. And now, from this day, you try to practise Krishna Consciousness and you will be so gloryous in society. And Jagai Madhai, "'Ara nare vapa', Jagai Madhai told, "Never I shall do again". This (skill) given you, we will follow as you said, what is my duty, duty of jagat, Mahaprabhu said, "You do vaisnava seva and chant Hari Mahamantra, no fear from the Yamaraj", ... And all the demigods, they are also dancing seeing Jagai Madhai have got rescued.0:39:12. And Vrindavan Das Thakur given that explanation... sloka. Also Kaviraj Goswami is fully dedicated with Nityananda Prabhu. Kaviraj Goswami said about Nityananda, "Nityananda mercy given me at Vrindavan-dham. And .. Sanatannama-srestham manum api sachi-putram atra svarupamrupam tasya-grajam uru-purim mathurim gosthavatimradha-kundam giri-varam aho radhika-madhavasamprapto yasya prathita-kripaya sri-gurum tam nato 'smi(Srila Raghunatha Dasa Goswami—Sri Mukta-charitam)0:40:17.It is sloka Dasa Goswami, and Kaviraj Goswami spelled that sloka, for him. One night sankirtan happen in Kaviraj Goswami's house, his brother had not full faith to Nityananda. And Nityananda's one deciple (leave) there party and brother not given much honour to him. And for that Kaviraj Goswami was very angry, cause his brother. And given curse to him, "Chaitanya Dev, you are not giving honour to Chaitanya Dev, not to Nityananda. You spoil your spiritual life", etc, etc, so many things, told in glorification of Nityananda Prabhu glories. And that... that diciple of Nityananda angrily gone from his house and Kaviraj Goswani chastise his brother so much.0:42:06. And .. said, last night, the dream Nityananda Prabhu... and giving some description Nityananda:(sanskrit). And  big, this size ... and lastely told, preme matta nityananda kripa-avatarauttama, adhama, kichhu na kare vicharaye age padaye, tare karaye nistaraataeva nistarila mo-hena duracharajagai madhai haite muni se papistha(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita: Adi-lila, 5.205-209)...Nityananda always intoxicated with Krishna preme and Gaura preme, and he is not concidering who is good and who is bad. Anyone fall down to him, he is giving his full mercy to him and he is getting Krisha-preme. That was the style of Nityananda. And Kaviraj Goswami said:purisera kita haite muni se laghisthajagai madhai haite muni se papisthamora nama sune yei tara punya ksayamora nama laya yei tara papa hayaemana nirghrina more keba kripa kareeka nityananda vinu jagat bhitarepreme matta nityananda kripa-avatarauttama, adhama, kichhu na kare vichara(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 5.208)0:43:49. ...not every heart will correlate Nityananda Prabhu ordered to Kaviraj Goswami,are are krsnadasa, na karaha bhaya vrindavane yaha,—tanha sarva labhya haya(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita: Adi-lila, 5.195 "You must be fearless, (immediate) my blessings, leave your this family life and go to Vrindavan. And there you will get, you will get everything, Mahaprabhu's mercy and Rupa, Sanatan, Kaviraj Das, etc". And Kaviraj Goswami next morning left his house. He expressed about Nityananda Prabhu's mercy, glorification of mercy, (this way). That Nityananda Prabhu in Nabadvip with Mahaprabhu, sankirtan every day.
