Door to door grace

“The anger-less, prideless, supremely joyful Nityānanda Rāy wanders throughout the towns. Going from door to door to the homes of the lowly and fallen souls, He distributes the Hare Krishna mahāmantra.”

 

Srila Gurudev singing Akrodha paramananda, in the year 1989.

akrodha paramānanda nityānanda rāya
abhimāna-śūnya nitāi nagare beḍāya [1]

The anger-less, prideless, supremely joyful Nityānanda Rāy wanders throughout the towns.

adhama patita jīver dvāre dvāre giyā
hari-nāma mahāmantra dena bilāiyā [2]

Going from door to door to the homes of the lowly and fallen souls, He distributes the Hare Krishna mahāmantra.

yāre dekhe tāre kahe dante tṛṇa dhari’
āmāre kiniyā laha bhaja gaurahari [3]

With straw between His teeth, He says to whoever He sees, “Purchase Me: simply serve Gaurahari.”

eta bali’ nityānanda bhūme gaḍi yāya
sonāra parvata yena dhūlāte loṭāya [4]

Saying this, Nityānanda rolls on the ground like a golden mountain rolling in the dust.

hena avatāre yāra rati nā janmila
lochan bale sei pāpī ela āra gela [5]

Lochan Dās says of one who has not developed attachment to this Avatār, “Such a sinner simply came and went.”
