vayu purane


(1) balaramo mamaivamsah, so’ pi mat-prishtham eshyati;

nityananda iti khyato nyasi-cudamanih kshitau


In the Vayu Purana, the Lord tells Brahma:


“‘Lord Balarama, who is My first expansion and non-different from Me will also appear by My side as Lord Shri Nityananda. He will become the crest jewel of all renunciants on the earth.   


(2) kritvavadhuta-vesham sa, dharman bhagavatan bahun;

grahayitva janan ittham grihinam asramam tatah.


“‘Assuming the dress of an avadhuta, He will freely distribute bhagavata dharma i.e. love of God. He will distribute this pure love through various means and deliver all the living entities. He will do first as a brahmacari and later as a householder.


(3) jahnavy-adibhir atmanam, darsayishyati manavan.


“‘Accompanied by His eternal consort Shrimati Jahnavi-devi and many other intimate associates, He (Nityananda) will reveal his transcendental pastimes to the people.’”
