আর কবে নিতাইচাঁদ করুণা করিবে ।
সংসার-বাসনা মোর কবে তুচ্ছ হ'বে ॥

ara kabe nitaichand karuna karibe
samsara-vasana mora kabe tuchha ha'be

"When will Nitaichand give mercy to me? When will all my material desires become insignificant?"

('Prarthana' by Srila Narottam Das Thakur)

"When will Nityananda Prabhu give some mercy to me? When will the attachment to my family life, attachment to my material life be removed from my heart?"

Srila Vrindavan Das Thakur also told,

আমার প্রভুর প্রভু শ্রীগৌরসুন্দর ।
এ বড় ভরসা চিত্তে ধরি নিরন্তর ॥

amara prabhura prabhu sri-gaurasundar
e bada bharasa chitte dhari nirantara

"My Prabhu (my master) is Nityananda Prabhu, and His master is Gauranga Mahaprabhu. That is my great hope (bharasa)."

Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj Goswami also told in Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita,

এক 'মহাপ্রভু', আর 'প্রভু'—দুইজন ।
দুই প্রভু সেবে মহাপ্রভুর চরণ ॥

eka ‘mahaprabhu', ara 'prabhu' duijana
dui prabhu seve mahaprabhura charana

"There is one Supreme Personality of Godhead ('mahaprabhu'), Sri Gaurasundar, and there are two 'prabhus'—svayam prakas-vastu Nityananda Prabhu and svamsa Advaita Prabhu—both of them serve Chaitanya Mahaprabhu."

আর কবে নিতাইচাঁদ করুণা করিবে ।
সংসার-বাসনা মোর কবে তুচ্ছ হ'বে ॥

ara kabe nitaichand karuna karibe
samsara-vasana mora kabe tuchha ha'be

"When will Nitaichand give mercy to me? When will all my material desires become insignificant?"

('Prarthana' by Srila Narottam Das Thakur)

বিষয় ছাড়িয়া কবে শুদ্ধ হ'বে মন ।
কবে হাম হেরব শ্রীবৃন্দাবন ॥

visaya chhadiya kabe suddha habe mana,
kabe hama heraba sri-vrindavan

"When will my mind, leaving the material world, become clean? When will I see Sri Vrindavan?"

"When will my mind be purified? When will my material desires be removed? When will I be able to serve Sri Dham Vrindavan with a clean mind?" That is the main thing for us. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur also wrote for Nityananda Prabhu's appearance day that our only hope is Sri Guru-Nityananda—if we serve Their lotus feet, we can increase our devotion, our spiritual life. That is the main thing about Nityananda Prabhu.

Happy Birthday
'On your birthday you can ask the Lord, ask Gurudev only, 'Prabhu, please engage me more and more in serving You. I am a fallen soul, I have no quality or qualification, but You can engage me.' This is the way to celebrate a birthday, by doing Guru-puja...'

 

Namo namah tulasi maharani
'O Tulasi Maharani, O Vrnda Devi, I offer my obeisance unto you again and again. O Narayani, I offer my obeisance unto you again and again.'
নমো নমঃ তুলসী মহারাণি

When we are not under the shelter of Gurudev, then any time we can be destroyed
