(16) BECAUSE ONE CAN NEVER EVEN VISIT VRINDAVANA WITHOUT ACHIEVING THE MERCY OF NITYANANDA AND GAURANGA
Cc Adi 8.3 purport:
"In the beginning one should very regularly chant Shri Gaurasundara's holy name and then chant the holy name of Lord Nityananda. Thus one's heart will be cleansed of impure desires for material enjoyment. Then one can approach Vrndavana-dhama to worship Lord Krishna. Unless one is favored by Lord Chaitanya and Nityananda, there is no need to go to Vrndavana, for unless one's mind is purified, he cannot see Vrndavana, even if he goes there."
One can worship Lord Nityananda in the topmost manner by chanting His Holy Name (atleast 1008 times or 10 rounds) daily along with atleast 10 rounds of Lord Gauranga’s Name and 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra and by daily reading (1 chapter of) Chaitanya-Bhagavata daily which is the topmost scripture on the glories of Lord Nityananda composed by His most confidential associate Shrila Vrindavana dasa Thakura. Nitai-Gaura Premanande!
