In Caitanya Bhagavata, Supreme Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu explains:
prabhu bale-eha nityananda svarupere
se karaye bhakti-sraddha se kare amare
"One who has faith and devotion for Lord Nityananda has faith and devotion for Me(Lord Caitanya) also." (C.Bhag. Madhya 12.55)
This is very important verse for us to understand. Actually whole process of attaining perfection in devotional service is summarized within this instruction. Perfection of life is unconditional devotional service to Supreme Lord, Sri Krsna, who manifest Himself in unlimited transcendental forms and eternally enjoys with His eternal consort Srimati Radharani. In this age of Kali, this highest perfection can be attain only by chanting Lord's Holy Names and no other process can elevate jiva to platform of understanding and real service to the lotus feat of Sri Sri Radha-Krsna in Vrindavan. Srilla Bhaktisidhantha Sarasvati Thakura summarized whole truths in verse - sri krsna caitanya radha krsna nahe anya - that Lord Sri Krsna Caitanya is non different from Sri Sri Radha Krsna. Here, that same Lord Gauranga is giving us direction how we can really satisfy Him and develop real faith. bhakti sraddha. If we have faith and devotion to Lord Nityananda then immediately we will have faith to Lord Caitanya and in the same time to Radha and Krsna. That is whole process. Heno nitai bine bhai radha krsna paite nai. Only by worshiping Lord Nityananda by constantly chanting His Name, we can attain shelter of Radha Krsna, or Lord Gauranga. This is sum and substance of all vedic knowledge.
