If we want to break a chain, then we have to break it at its weakest point. Similarly, to remove the curtain of offenses in Harinam, we have to remove them with the help of the offenseless, forgiving and liberal Nitainam first. Then Harinam will dance on our tongues with its full Nam-Rupa-Guna-Lila splendor.
Lord Krishna asked Arjuna to proclaim to the world that His devotees never perishes, but quickly rises up after a fall down. This is because Krishna Himself can break His own promise, but never His pure devotee’s promise. And that is Nitai Bhakti.
From the day Gaura showed me that Nitai is my only hope, Nitai Bhakti is my very life & my life is Nitai Bhakti. I desperately cling on to the hope that Nitai will not make me forget this summit of all realizations and doom me to again start from scratch if He gives me rebirth.
Approaching Nitai means going to Nitai Gaura Lila, because Vrindavan das said that Gaura Lila lies safely in Nitai’s custody. Nitai is the topmost devotee of Gaura & Radha is of Krishna. So Nitai Bhakti includes Gaura Krishna Bhakti, just like Radha Bhakti includes Krishna Bhakti.
