Sri Sri Gaura-Nityänander Dayä

The Mercy of Sri Gaura and Nityänanda
(from Dhämäli)
by Locana Däsa Öhäkura

parama koruna, pahü dui jana
nitäi gauracandra
saba avatära-sära siromani
kevala änanda-kanda

The two Lords, Nitäi-Gauracandra, are very merciful. They are the
essence of all incarnations. The specific significance of these
incarnations is that They introduced a process of chanting and
dancing that is simply joyful.

bhajo bhajo bhäi, caitanya nitäi
sudådha biswäsa kori
visaya chädiyä, se rase majiyä,
mukhe bolo hari hari

My dear brother, I request that you just worship Lord Caitanya and
Nityänanda with firm conviction and faith. If one wants to be Kåsna
conscious by this process, one has to give up his engagement in sense
gratification. One simply has to chant, "Hare Kåsna! Hari Hari!" without
any motive.

dekho ore bhäi, tri-bhuvane näi,
emona doyäla dätä
pasu päkhi jhure, päsäna vidare,
suni' jäìra guna-gäthä

My dear brother, just try and examine this. Within the three worlds there
is no one like Lord Caitanya or Lord Nityänanda. Their merciful qualities
are so great that upon hearing them even birds and beasts cry and stones melt.

samsäre majiyä, rohili poriyä,
se pade nahilo äsa
äpana karama, bhuïjäye samana,
kahoye locana-däsa

But Locana däsa regrets that I am entrapped by sense gratification.
Since I have no attraction for the lotus feet of Lord Caitanya and Lord
Nityänanda, then Yamaräja, the superintendent of death, is punishing me
by not allowing me to be attracted by this movement.
