Nitai Guna Mani Amara

My Lord Nitai is the Jewel of all Transcendental Qualities
By Shrila Lochana dasa Thakura

It is said that Lord Shri Nityananda Prabhu is even more merciful, more magnanimous,
more munificent than Lord Shriman Gauranga Mahaprabhu.

nitai guna-mani amara, nitai guna-mani
aniya premera banya bhasailo avani

My Nitai is the jewel of transcendental qualities, the jewel of transcendental qualities. Bringing the flood of prema, He inundated the earth.

premera banya loiya nitai aila gauda-dese
dubilo bhakata-gana dina hina bhase

Shri Nitai came to Gauda-desa with a flood of krishna-prema. dubilo bhakata-gana dina hina bhase, those who are bhaktas drowned in that flood, premera banya. But the dina hina, the fallen souls and unfortunate, floated on the surface!

dina hina patita pamara nahi bachhe
brahmara durlabha prema sabakare jache

Lord Nityananda Prabhu offers this pure love of Godhead, pure love of Krishna indiscriminately. He distributes this prema with two hands! He never discriminates whether one is patita or pamara: most degraded, most fallen or most elevated, qualified or not qualified. He never discriminates. Even it is very difficult for Brahma to get such prema. But Shri Nitai gives indiscriminately.

abaddha karuna-sindhu katiya muhana
ghare ghare bule prema-amiyara bana

That prema is karuna-sindhu like an ocean of mercy. Nitai broke down the strong embankment of the ocean of love. Completely devastated that dam! That ocean of love is an unlimited ocean of love. So then there was a heavy rush flowing, heavy rush! Such a flood came. A flood in every home. That flood came to every home. It inundated the whole world!

lochan bole hena nitai jeba na bhajilo
janiya suniya sei atma-ghati hoilo

Locana says, "He is an unfortunate fellow who does not take shelter of Nitai and does not do the bhajana of Shri Nityananda Prabhu, begging for the mercy of Shri Nitai. He willingly commits suicide.
