🌿Glorifying Nitainam is glorifying Harinam & glorifying the Name of the topmost devotee of Hari (Nitai is Bhakt-Bhagwan). Just like Krishna never becomes displeased with someone who takes Radhanam 24 hours, Gaura is very ecstatic to accept any soul who may take Nitainam 24 hours.
🌿Some ask: Why so much focus on Nitainam for Harinam-Siddhi? No one else is God-Guru-Devotee-Devotion combined in an accessible form like Nitai. And so is His Name. It grants the results of calling out God’s, Gurus’, Acharyas’ & Bhakts’ name together, so what more mercy is needed?
🌿Some just play with numbers in the chanting of Nam. But in the game of increasing these nos., do we count how much time we have actually remembered the form, qualities & pastimes in the Name? We don’t count our Kirtan but we may get much deeper remembrance of rupa-guna-lila in it.
🌿It is fast from nistha to prem but the time taken from initial faith to nistha (staunch faith) in Bhakti is the longest. This may take millions of lifetimes, due to the unsurmountable anartha-nivritti & 10 offenses against Harinam. Nitainam & Nitailila shorten it to a few years.
🌿I agree that I have emphasized Nitainam & Nitailila more in the last two years. But I have also given many kathas on Radha Lila, Radhakund Lila & Harinam in these 2 years, which have been conveniently forgotten. And what about my 1000s of Kathas & Saptahs on Krishna Lila before?
🌿Some are saying that I have “changed” in the last 2 years as I have embraced Nitai Bhakti. That would be true if I had told anyone to stop Harinam or to read Bhagavat and only do Nitai Gunjan & read Nitailila. I still believe in the Lakshanam goal from my very first book Mahamantra Yoga 17 years ago.
🌿I’ve never said that I am special, empowered, or the only one who knows about Nitaitattva. I am just humbly sharing the sphurtis which Nitai Gunjan & Harinam give me. I don’t expect anyone to read, hear, or follow what I say, if one does not like. I will still share it alone till I die.
🌿In my realizations of Nam-smaran, I have found this. Since Harinam considers our ten offenses, chanting it in the Dham helps to go deeper more quickly. But since Nitai is the Dham, offenseless & liberal Nitainam has the rarest power to quickly manifest the Dham anywhere we hum or sing it.
🌿When we wholeheartedly practice a means like Nitai Gunjan to make our Harinam pure, it means that it is extremely IMPORTANT to us that we chant Harinam offenselessly, not that we are minimizing or replacing Harinam. In fact we do Gunjan because Shuddha Harinam is our top priority.
🌿When I chanted only Harinam, I found that the spontaneous sphurtis came easier in Radha Kund, than anywhere outside the Dham. But when I started to hum or sing Nitainam additionally, the sphurtis in both Nitainam & Harinam were of the same clarity anywhere in the world. Mercy!
🌿When I chanted only Harinam, I felt the change in my remembrance when I ate prasadam from different donors & cooks both. But when I started to hum or sing Nitainam with Harinam, fluctuations in these two sources could not decrease my remembrance at all in both Nitainam & Harinam.
🌿The constant flow of new realizations and visions never abates in Harinam and otherwise due to Nitai Gunjan.
🌿In Nitai Gaur Lila, I serve Jahnava devi in Her kunj in the center of Nitai Kund. In Radha Krishna Lila, I serve Ananga manjari in Her kunj in Radha Kund. My nityaseva is Her Charan-seva, by the mercy of Nitai Gunjan & Harinam. It proves beyond doubt that Nitainam grants us Shuddha Harinam and both our Siddha Dehas.
