Nityananda Prabhu is very merciful. He approaches people and requests them in a humble mood, praying to them, "Come to the holy dhama."
Our acaryas performed bhajana in Svarupa Ganja on the eastern side of the Ganga, in Godruma-dhama. They invited everyone to come to the dhama.
nadiya-godrume nityananda mahajana patiyache nama-hatta jivera karana
In Nadiya, on the island of Godruma, the magnanimous Nityananda Prabhu has opened a marketplace of the holy name for the deliverance of all jivas.
sraddhavan jan he, sraddhavan jan he prabhur ajnay, bhai, magi ei bhikha bolo krsna, bhajo krsna, koro krsna-sikha ,
There He calls out to everyone, "O faithful men! On Sri Gauranga's order, O brothers, I beg you: Chant krsna!', serve Krsna and worship and follow His teachings.
Nityananda Prabhu and Advaita Prabhu are like parts of Mahaprabhu. They serve Mahaprabhu. If anyone comes from anywhere, Nityananda Prabhu and Advaita Prabhu clean their anarthas and give them spiritual power, making them eager to hear ban-kasha and engage in ncima-sankirtana. Then they'll remember the mercy of Gaurahari, Nityananda Prabhu, Advaita Prabhu, Gadadhara Pandita, and Srivasa Pandita. Everyone's memory will be very sharp and clean. Without the mercy of the panca-tattva, the five elements in the body will never be clean. These five elements in the body-earth, water, fire, air, and ether-are like great dacoits; they are ferocious demons. They always inspire us to enjoy the material world, ordering our soul, "Help me enjoy." They are always with us. The five elements compose the physical body and issue a strong order, "Stay with me, help me, serve me."
The senses are always greedy for the five rasas of this world-form, taste, sound, smell, and touch. The senses are very greedy for these. Mahaprabhu and Nityananda Prabhu say, "Alone we cannot save the living entities."
Mahaprabhu, Nityananda Prabhu, Advaita Prabhu, Gadadhara Pandita, Srivasa Pandita, Mukunda Ghosa, Sanjaya, Govinda Ghosa, Murari Gupta, Abhirama Thakura, the Dvadasa Gopala, Causatti-mahanta, Asta-kaviraja, and Sad Gosvamis are all our protectors. The senses have been tormenting the soul for millions of lives in the prison of the physical body. We are all prisoners now who cannot do anything without the desire of the senses. If we want to walk, the legs may say, "We are tired, we won't go. We won't help you." Then we cannot move. But if my lover calls me, I can walk two thousand kilometers, because the senses like mundane rasa, But they don't like transcendental bhakti-rasa and vraja-rasa. The senses have no desire for this; therefore they won't walk.
They say, "You can arrange a vimana or anything else, but I won't walk." Our Guru-varga would walk from Navadvipa to Vrndavana and back. They would also walk to Jagannatha Puri. They would go to all the holy dhamas, with deep desire for bhakti-rasa. Wherever the sadhus distribute this bhakti-rasa, the anuragi Vaisnavas go there. Now we are all arrested by and attached to our senses. The panca-tattva are very qualified. They purify the five elements in our body and enable us to use this body for God's service.
Mahaprabhu told Nityananda Prabhu, "Go everywhere! Request and inspire the living entities to serve Kona, and give them my love. The jivas are very greedy for love. Some people will even give up their lives for love. But love in this world is not real. It is the giver of pain and suffering." The living entities become attached to objects of this world, which cause them misery. These are painful and poisonous. If love is used only for God, it is very sweet and helpful for the living entities. Then there is no need of further sadhana, austerity, tension, or anything. When this love is used for the senses, it creates prarabdha and aprarabdha, sins and offenses.
Mahaprabhu told Nityananda Prabhu, "Go help the living entities. They are weak. Help them come to Me. They are greedy for love. They go to animals, dogs, cats, ladies and gents, running here and there only out of desire for love and affection. They have greed, 'May someone speak sweetly to me, with a polite and humble mood. May someone accept and take care of me, and think about me.' All are greedy for love, but no one knows that no one from this world can fulfill our desires for love. Distribute My love. Then everyone will come to Me. But if this love is not given, the jivas wander in this desert-like world, suffering again and again in the millions of species for millions and millions of lives."
One time, Lokanatha dasa Thakura sent Narottama dasa Thakura out of Vraja, saying, "Go help all jivas, don't stay here any longer. If you are sitting and chanting near me, this is not enough. I have seen that your heart is very soft and you are kind to all jivas. In the afternoon, one farmer came and asked for water, and you gave him out of your kindness. Now, this is the desire of God. Go and help everyone."
Narottama dasa Thakura, Srinivasa Acarya, and Syamananda Prabhu came to Srila Jiva Gosvami, who gave them all of the Gosvamis' books, and ordered them to give these to the world.
