Akrodha Paramananda

Shrila Locana dasa Thakura

 

akrodha paramananda nityananda raya

abhimana shunya nitai nagare bedaya (1)

 

The noble Nityananda Prabhu is never angry, for He is the personification of supreme

transcendental bliss. Devoid of all false ego, Nitai wanders about the town. [Baladeva

Prabhu and Lakshmana get angry, but not Nityananda.]

 

adhama patita jivera dvare dvare giya

harinama maha-mantra dicchena bilaiya (2)

 

Going from door to door to the houses of the most fallen and wretched souls, He freely

distributes the gift of the harinama maha-mantra.

 

ja’re dekhe ta’re kahe dante trina dhari’

‘amare kiniya laha bala gaurahari’ (3)

 

Holding a straw in His teeth, He exclaims to whomever He sees, “You can purchase

Me by worshiping Gaurahari!”

 

eta bali’ nityananda bhume gadi’ jaya

sonara parvata jena dhulate lotaya (4)

 

Saying thus, Nityananda Prabhu rolls about on the ground, appearing like a golden

mountain tumbling in the dust.

 

hena avatare ja’ra rati na janmila

locana bale sei papi ela ara gela (5)

 

Locana dasa says, “That sinful person who has not experienced the awakening of

affection for such an avatara as this simply comes and goes uselessly in the cycle

of repeated birth and death.”
