Constant remembrance of Nityananda and Gaura Radha Krishna during all our spiritual practices comes by the intimate knowledge of Their pastimes. Without it, our Bhakti is just lip service, show-bottle, and very weak. Shastra proof about hearing Nityananda lila is here.
ye līlā-amṛta vine,
khāya yadi anna-pāne,
Caitanya Caritamrta 2.25.278
Men become strong and stout by eating sufficient grains, but the devotee who simply eats ordinary grains but does not taste the transcendental pastimes of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Kṛṣṇa gradually becomes weak and falls down from the transcendental position. However, if one drinks but a drop of the nectar of Kṛṣṇa's pastimes, his body and mind begin to bloom, and he begins to laugh, sing and dance.
Purport by Srila Prabhupada
All the devotees connected with this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement must read all the books that have been translated (Caitanya-caritāmṛta, Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, Bhagavad-gītā and others); otherwise, after some time, they will simply eat, sleep and fall down from their position. Thus they will miss the opportunity to attain an eternal, blissful life of transcendental pleasure.
Without hearing or reading Lila, our faith in Him can be broken by Maya or bad association anytime. Without it, we have no right to say that we are worshiping or serving Nityananda. Nityananda Lila is the brahmastra to destroy the all-pervading influence of Maya in Kali. The scriptural proof is here.
No wonder you don’t remember much about Him while doing your daily kirtan, japa, lekhan, etc. since you don’t even care to read, hear, or sing His pastimes from the scriptures daily. This is verily what the scriptures are for. This is utter neglect of the scriptures. All your spiritual practices are weak and superficial with no substance of real remembrance without enough mindfulness of His pastimes daily.
This knowledge is gained by profuse, repeated, and one-pointed daily reading, hearing, or singing of the maha-audarya, ever-offenseless, and all-forgiving pastimes of Nityananda, which are factually our only hope. Spend hours daily acquainting yourself with every minute detail of His pastimes over and over again and you will effortlessly find yourself in the pastimes of Gaura Radha Krishna. Don’t think that they are only His pastimes. Millions of streams of Gaura Radha Krishna’s pastimes emanate from Nityananda’s pastimes.
These rarest supreme mercy pastimes manifest only once in 8.64 billion years. You are the most fortunate to be born in the same Kaliyuga in which they have manifested. Don’t throw away this rarest of the rare opportunity to quickly realize both your spiritual forms by the mercy of Nityananda’s pastimes. Who knows when you will get such a golden chance again in the next trillions of lifetimes?
Become a walking-talking encyclopedia of Nityananda’s pastimes, just like you become a zealous fan of your favorite sports, movie, or political star. That is the actual way to truly accept Nityananda as your Ishtadeva, so that He can factually award you Gaura, Harinam, and Radha Dasyam in this very life. Always remember and never forget that there is no other way in our present constantly offensive condition.
Nityananda’s pastimes should become so much wired into your consciousness by plentiful and intense reading, hearing, or singing daily that you should start visualizing their minutest details even in your dreams, without any effort on your part. Only then you will certainly attain both the eternal pastimes at the time of death.
You don’t forget to eat food for your body many times daily, do you? So why do you conveniently forget intaking these pastimes for your soul daily? Please don’t starve your soul in the name of feeding and maintaining the bodies of you and your family. It is spiritual suicide. Your body is temporary whereas you, the soul, are eternal. Become very serious to know more and more about Nityananda with one-pointed focus. Becoming His fan means knowing all about Him and always talking about Him.
You spend hours daily to read, watch, and fill your brains with the news of this world. But you give many excuses and find it a huge burden to spare even a few minutes daily to know these most merciful pastimes of the spiritual world, which Nityananda has specifically manifested for your very own deliverance. It is like slapping Nityananda in His face when He is humbly begging you to accept Him.
Don’t go down this doomsday path of forgetfulness of Nityananda by not sparing time for this most urgent necessity in the whole creation, which is to associate with His pastimes daily. Your short life will be over in a flash and then you will never be able to learn about the merciful Nityananda and thus about Gaura Radha Krishna for trillions of lifetimes. What a gigantic colossal wastage of your precious human life it will be! How then will you ever hope to attain Him in the spiritual world after death? Your entry into Goloka Vrindavana will just remain a pipe dream without the abundant reading, hearing, or singing of Nityananda’s pastimes daily for making your Hare Krishna Maha Mantra completely offenseless.
