Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krsna All glories to Swami Gaurangapada!
It is said that in order to approach Supreme Lord devotee must first take shelter of His Eternal Energy - for example we are chanting Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
I can, theoretically understand that when we chant Gaura Naam we are worshiping also His Eternal Energy, Radha, because He is Radha-Krsna combined.
Question is - in what way we may pray, chant, glorify or worship eternal energy of Lord Nityananda in order to get Their mercy and more deeply become absorb in Naam Bhajan. Is this approach or desire to worship eternal energies or consorts of Lord Nityananda bonafide according to our sampradaya?
sri-jahnave pada padma koriya smaran Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krsna

Nityaananda! Gauraanga! Hare Krishna! Certainly to remember Shrimati Jahnava and Shrimati Vasudha, the eternal consorts and energies of Lord Nityaananda Raama, is very auspicious and extremely pleasing to Lord Nitaai. One can remember and worship Jahnava Nitaai at any time by chanting Their combined 12-syllable Mantra especially when we offer bhoga or any paraphernalia to Lord Nitaai. This twelve syllable supremely beautiful (sarvatraiva manohara) Mantra revealed in the conversation between Bhumidevi and Lord Ananta Shesha in the Brahmanda Purana is:
kliM deva-jAhnavI-vallabhAya svAhA
Though klim Mantras are not normally revealed openly in public, I desire to make an exception for this merciful Mantra of Shri Shri Jahnava Nitaai. Lord Nityaananda Prabhu is always causelessly merciful on anyone who simply approaches Him.
