Title: Decription of Lord Nityananda
User: neilsf Date: 2006-07-27 20:01:07
Here is a decription of Lord Nityananda from Chaitanya Bhagavata Antya Khanda, Chapter 5.
"The Lord dressed in a very special and attractive way that enchanted everyone. He wrapped many colored silk cloths around His head like a Maharaja and on top of this elaborate turban wore strand upon strand of sparkling ornaments and delicate flower garlands, his chest was covered with innumerable glittering gold necklaces studded with many pearls and priceless gems. Golden earrings set with shiny white pearls gently dangled from His ears. Bejewelled armlets and bracelets graced His hands and arms. His whole body was covered countless jewellery of priceless value. Different parts of His body were exquisitely decorated with designs of sandalwood. He looked and often acted just like Bala-gopala of Vrindavana.
"Sometimes overcome by ecstatic emotions, Shri Nityananda would pick up an iron rod and hold it with both hands, all his fingers decorated with golden rings and multicolored silks draped all over him. Cane, flute and horn were stuck in His belt with leisurely carelessness and His very sight captured the minds of the people. His gait was like that of a royal elephant and with every step His silver ankle bells jangled musically. The Lord's transcendental glances immediately invoked spiritual love of Krishna wherever they rested. Nityananda moved about in the town of Shri Chaitanya's birth with great pleasure, dressed in this wonderful fashion to give joy to the hearts of everyone.
"Navadvipa was like the capital city Mathura - it teemed with population and many pious people lived there. Of the populace, some were so religious that wretched sinners could become free from all their sins by just seeing them, but others were such abominable reprobates that even if their shadow just touched someone that person would become berefit of all his piety. All these people, whatever their position, were inspired on the path of Krishna consciousness by the mercy of Shri Nityananda. Shri Chaitanya had earlier liberated so many people and now Shri Nityananda was purifying many others. He saved even the theives, rogues, derelicts and most wretched."
I bow down again and again to my dear Swami Gaurangapada and ask his blessing for me to always keep Lord Shri Nityananda in my heart. I ask Swami Gaurangapada to please grant me the grace of always being attached to serving the needs of all devotees of Nityananda. Please grant me the service of the servants of Lord Shri Nityananda.
I love that description of Lord Nityananda. He is so beautiful. I pray that my chanting may be pleasing to Lord Nityanada and that he may grace me with attachment to His own and the Guru's and Vaishnava's lotus feet.
All pranams and dandavats to Lord Nityananda, Swami Gaurangapada and all the Vaishnavas. Please bless this humble, fallen soul.
