● This morning I was thinking about Lord Nityananda’s statements in Sri Navadwipdham Mahatmya, where He is calling all the souls of Kali yuga to approach Him directly for whatever we want, which will naturally include Krishnaprem, because He is the actual bestower of Krishna- prem.
● This information revealed by Srila Bhaktivinode Thakura, of Nityananda’s desire to give to the fallen souls of Kali yuga, the topmost happiness by approaching Him directly - is absolutely revolutionary - for me it’s mind blowing - it’s so wonderful.
● Nityananda Prabhu has pulled out all stops so the aparadhis of Kaliyuga will still be able to obtain Krishna prema even without approaching a guru, as stipulated by His brother Sri Krishna in Bhagavad-gita. Nityananda Prabhu has just changed everything
● So I am appreciating this morning how ANYONE can get a copy of Sri Navadwipdham Mahatmya, read it, then without approaching any guru as such, directly approach Nityananda Prabhu for the highest gift/topmost gift - Krishnaprem and He will give it to them , if He wants. This info is so very difficult for us who have been conditioned to believe that there is no chance of getting Krishna prem without Gurudev’s mercy.
● Prabhu Nityananda is in fact the topmost Guru of all Gurus the Master of all the gurus in creation,and as such, such people cannot accept at all what Nityananda Prabhu has and is doing for us kaliyuga aparadhis. They are not accepting Nityananda’s position as the Supreme Personality of Godhead - Avatari , and the Guru of all Guru’s - Adi Guru. - that He can do whatever He wants - He can act , and is, completely independent from the statements of any scripture, or Guru. Such mercy, I feel, the world has never known before. We are so very fortunate souls to take our birth now and on this planet, and in this particular Kaliyuga
● Also Nityananda Prabhu Himself is Ananga Manjari- so we need Nityananda’s mercy more than anything. That’s why Srila Narottam das Thakur, and ACBSP, categorically state if we want to enter vraja Lila of RadhaKrishna we must get the mercy of Nityananda- there’s no way around it in this Kaliyuga, because Nityananda is Krishna prema pradah - He is the person Who bestows prema bhakti- Krishnaprem.
● So as Bhaktiratna Sadhu has pointed out it is a descending process only- in kaliyuga sadhana bhakti will not bring the desired result - because generally by engaging in sadhana bhakti process, we are thinking - if I can do this I will become purified — if i do this , if i do that, I will be able to control my mind and senses, but in reality it is Nityananda Who does the purifying, by us begging Him to be merciful to us, to give us Krishna prem.
● When Nityananda gives His mercy then automatically we are purified, and can then understand about Vrajalila - this is stated by ACBSP in his purport to verse 17 Adilila, chapter 7 of Chaitanya Charitamrita. And anyway Nityananda prem is Krishna prem in that if Nityananda gives us love for Himself- He will give us love for Mahaprabhu, Who is RadhaKrishna.
● If Nityananda will give us the love for Himself, and really He is non different than Mahaprabhu, Loving Nityananda is all we actually need- He will arrange everything else - by His mercy He will give us Krishna prema - Maharaj is the perfect example of a soul who has received the mercy of Nityananda, and we all saw on the videos how He received that mercy - by crying and begging, begging and crying to Nityananda to have mercy on Him- Nityananda Koro doyo more - or something like that.
● Krishnaprem - prema bhakti - is a gift but we have to beg for it- it’s a totally descending process- actually nothing to do with our execution of sadhana bhakti- it’s a gift and Nityananda Prabhu is the bestower of that gift, and He will give that gift whether we are qualified or not qualified.
● But we have to approach Him and beg and cry to Him for that gift that He is waiting to bestow on us kaliyuga fallens. You might be asking why not sadhana bhakti - because in kaliyuga hardly anyone will be free from aparadhs- that’s stated by Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur in his Navadwip dham Mahatmya, Parikrama khanda , 1st chapter
