Mantra: Nitai Pada Kamala
nitai-pada-kamala, koti candra-susitala
je chayay jagata juray heno nitai bine bhai, radha-krsna paite nai
drdha kori' dharo nitair pay se sambandha nahi ja'r, brtha janma gelo ta'r
sei pasu boro duracar nitai na bolilo mukhe, majilo samsara-suke
vidya-kule ki koribe tar ahankare matta hoiya, nitai-pada pasariya
asatyere satya kori mani nitaiyer koruna habe, braje radha-krsna pabe
dharo nitai-carana du'khani nitaiyer-carana satya, tahara sevaka nitya
nitai-pada sada koro asa narottama boro dukhi, nitai more koro sukhi
rakho ranga-caranera pasa
The lotus feet of Lord Nityananda are a shelter that soothes with the light of millions of moons. Their shade brings solace to the universe. O brother, without Sri Nitai,
approaching Radha-Krishna is impossible. Catch hold of the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda and join Their dance!
A person who has not established his relationship with Nityananda Prabhu has wasted his life and is no better than an animal. Because he has never uttered the holy name of
Nityananda, he has been absorbed with so-called material "happiness." What can his useless education and family tradition do to help him?
With false prestige and identification with the body, one is thinking, "Oh, what is Nityananda? What can He do for me? I don't care." But he is not accepting the truth. To approach
Radha-Krishna, first achieve the mercy of Lord Nityananda. Grasp the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda, which are not illusion; they are a fact. Engage His transcendental loving
service and become transcendental. Catch the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda! I, Narottama dasa, am miserable and am praying to Lord Nityananda
to make me blissful. My dear Lord, please keep me close to Your lotus feet!
