|Sri Nityananda Prabhu|
The following is an endearing exchange between Sacinandana Maharaj and Radhanatha Swami along with hundreds of devotees from the Radha Gopinatha Mumbai Chowpatty temple. The exchange took place during the year 1997 at Sri Ekachakra Dhama. I remember this exchange took place rather late at night after a full day of touring Ekachakra and immediately after Radhanatha Swami gave a dynamic and heartfelt class on the unparalleled mercy of Lord Nityananda. We were all sitting under a banyan tree next to a rice field.
Somehow my mother gave a complicated birth to me on Nityananda’s appearance day. She was unconscious …it was complicated. The birth occurred just on the tithi of Nityananda’s appearance day. This sinful person (humbly referring to himself) who was destined by his karma to take birth in a family of brutal murderers. Because of this unconscious relation with Lord Nityananda we met the pure devotee, Srila Prabhupada. This is the proof of Lord Nityananda’s mercy. It is sitting before you in a body with blood flowing through his veins and so on and so forth.
I am disclosing this not because I am a special person..no, no. I was born in a family of great sinners. Special people do not take such births. It is Lord Nityananda’s mercy which made even the most fallen person into a devotee of God. This is proof of Lord Nityananda’s mercy. Hare Krishna!
Now try to understand the mercy of Lord Nityananda. Sacinandana Maharaja and I are the dearest of friends. This is the power of Lord Nityananda Prabhu. We have transcended our backgrounds as Jews and Nazi’s, and we are blissfully dancing together in the chanting of the holy names.
Ekachakra Dhama ki jay!
Here are the links to the lectures. The exchange between Radhanatha Swami and Sacinandana Swami takes place on the second link at about 48:00. The website says that these classes took place in the year 2000 but they actually occurred in 1997. Please take an hour or two to listen and meditate on these wonderful and blissful activities of Nityananda Prabhu.
