Nitai Mora Jivana-Dhana
by His Divine Grace Shrila Lochana Dasa Thakura

Translated by BRS Swami Gaurangapada.


Nitai mora jivana-dhana, Nitai mora jati;

Nitai bihane mora, ara nahi gati.


"The Supreme Personality of Servitor Godhead Lord Nityananda Balarama and His  Holy Name is the exclusive treasure and wealth of my life. My caste and family lineage is only Lord Nityananda. Without the Holy Name of Lord Nityananda, I have no other destination life after life."


samsara sukhera mukhe, tule dibe chai;

nagare magiya khaba, gaiya nitai.


"I will spit in distaste at even the thought of enjoying the insignificant and flickering pleasures of this material world. Instead with full determination I will dedicate my life to chant, sing, preach and relish the unlimited nectar in the Holy Name of Lord Nityananda in every town and village and eat whatever is obtained by begging at a few houses."


je deshe mora nitai nai, se deshe na jaba;

Niitai vimukha janara, mukha na heriba


"I have taken a determined lifelong vow that I will never ever visit that place even in my dreams where the Holy Name of Nityananda is not known. I will never even desire to see the face of a person who is even minutely or indirectly averse to the Holy Name and Glories of Lord Nityananda."


ganga jara pada jala, hara shire dhare;

hena Nitai na bhajiya, dukha peye mare.


"The Holy, Supremely pure and sanctified water that washes the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda Prabhu is constantly carried by Shiva on his head in great bliss. Thus if one does not chant the Name of Lord Nityananda and worship Him,

such a person is fully certain and doomed to suffer miserably during this life, at the time of death and also in the next lives."


lochana bale mora nitai, jeba na mane;

anala bhejai tara, majha mukha kane


"Thus Lochana Dasa says that those who do not worship my Lord Nityanand by chanting His Name and thus refuse to accept Him as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, such demoniac people will face the great pain of fire which will be

constantly burning their useless and sinful mouths, ears and face."
