Title: Nityananda/Balarama's Lotus Hands and Feet
User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2007-03-13 15:53:48
Nityananda, Gauranga, Hare Krsna.
Dear Swami Gaurangapada,
please accept my simple obiesances.
There is a forum I follow on the internet and one particular devotee asked a question that I would like to respond. So far no-one has responded to her.
The question is, "Are the markings on Nityananda's Lotus Hands and Feet the same as the markings on Balarama's Hands and Feet."
During the day I had the oppurtunity to read your book, The Lotus Hands and Feet of Nityananda Gauranga. Some of the verses glorifying Lords Nityananda and Gauranga are simply beautiful, thank you.
Hoping to hear your reply.
Nava Gauranga dasa.
Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Yes, absolutely the same markings are there on the Lord Nityananda and Lord Balarama's Lotus Hands and Feet as They are one and the same person. It is also applicable to Lord Advaita Acharya and Karanodakashayi Lord Maha Vishnu.
