Ekachakra: Shri Nityananda Prabhu's Appearance Place
Shri Ekachakra is the glorious appearance place of Shri Nityananda Prabhu. Just look at the sublime and serene beauty of this place! The sounds of modernization are not heard here, only birds singing, cows mooing and breezes blowing. Ekachakra does not even have electricity at present. It is uncontaminated by modern civilization and remains pure and pristine in every respect. Ekachakra is situated in the district of Birbhum, quite near to Burdwan. It is located eight miles east of Mallarapur rail station and eleven miles north of Ram-purhaat rail station.Without pride or false prestige, one should unhesitatingly fall down into the dust of this sacred and hallowed land. Few devotees achieve the good fortune to attain Ekachakra. Roll in the dust! Laugh! Cry! Sing and dance in ecstasy, for one who has come on pilgrimage to Ekachakra has received rare and confidential mercy.
Shrila Gaura Kishora das Babaji Maharaj used to like to sing the following verse: Nitai Gaura Krishna Prema Radhe Radhe, Nitai Gaura Krishna Prema Radhe Radhe, for by receiving Nitai's mercy one can receive Gauranga's mercy. By Gauranga's mercy, one is eligible for Krishna prema, and receiving Krishna prema, one can attain the association of the gopis and Shrimati Radharani.When a fortunate living entity receives the mercy of Nitaicandra, he is automatically eligible to enter Gaura lila. Once one enters Gaura lila, he soon receives Krishna prema. And once he receives Krishna prema, he becomes simultaneously qualified to render loving devotional service in both Shri Navadwip Dham as well as Shri Vrindavan Dham. So always take shelter of Nitaicandra! By receiving His mercy one is assured of reaching the desired goal. Gaura Premanandi!
