“Lord Nityananda’s form is as alluring as Kamadeva. His large eyes and eyebrows are so large and beautiful that They induce such delight in everyone who beholds Them.”
dighala nayana bhana
Oh Providence, what a tremendous assurance and sigh of relief in our distressed and hopeless state to know that our beloved Nityananda Prabhu gives away Hare Krishna Prema, pure love, to one and all without any considerations.
He does so by simply glancing at them - regardless of whether they even desire it or not! This divine transmission of empowering mercy via the kripa kataksha of Nityananda is unstoppable by any means in creation.
Dasa Narahari gati, Vasu Jahnava’r pati, jare taare prema bilaila! Narahari dasa Thakura guarantees that Nityananda gives away prema to anyone and everyone - jare tare!
In Raghava Pandita’s griha mandira in Panihati, during the tumultuous Kirtan which took place by the influence of Nityananda’s mercy, devotees became overly inundated with prema simply due to Nityananda’s maddening glance, to the extent of total self-forgetfulness. They acted just like madmen, unaware of their present condition or surroundings.
Wherever Nityananda glanced with His mada ghurnita lochana, His intoxicated lotus eyes appeared to shoot out a deluge of divine affection, compassion and love; compelling the devotees to uncontrollably sway away in the tides of endless bliss and prema. The moment Nityananda glanced at an individual, time seemed to come to a halt for eternity for that soul.
They became so lovesick due to being struck by Nityananda’s loving glance that they could not even speak or come back to their normal senses for three continuous months!
Some danced like mad elephants causing the earth to shake, some uprooted trees, some rolled helplessly on the ground, others stood paralysed by prema, while others mumbled a few words like madmen and could not do anything else
Again others brought down a flood of love with the tears cascading down their eyes, while some leaped into the air and fell drastically to the ground without any sign of concern.
Some appeared mad on the outside, and others went mad inside! Keho ba mate mane mane. All this madness simply due to the maddening glance of one transcendentally mad Personality - Nityananda!
Srila Vrindavana dasa Thakura spends a whole chapter just describing the stupefying influence of Nityananda’s enchanting and captivating glance, which makes everyone lose all control of themselves.
At the end he confesses however that He is incapable of properly describing the pastimes of all these miraculous transformations which were caused by Nityananda’s glance.
Even Nityananda’s own expansion Anantadeva Himself is not adept in doing so with the assistance of His thousands of mouthes! What capability do we have to even imagine the flabbergasting influence of that divine glance of Nityananda?!
This fallen soul’s hope against all hope is by remembering the fact that Nityananda bestows this same glance on whoever comes before Him, irrespective of even their foolish resistance to accept it!
So by doing Nityananda Namlekhan, Kirtan, and Shravan; which is the pinnacle of causeless mercy, one day I will certainly be graced with this intoxicating glance of Karunasindhu Nityananda Gunamani which is sought after by Brahma, Shiva, Narada, etc., what to speak of Lord Gaura Krishna Himself.
And only at that time I will become impregnated with Shuddha Harinama and Gaura Radha Krishna Prema. This is my only solace in the darkness of material existence.
May Nityananda’s kripa kataksha drive us all mad in love for Him, just as He Himself is mad for Gaura Govinda!
