Shade of Nityananda Prabhu's Lotus Feet

"Nitai-pada-kamala, koti-candra-susitala. If we take shelter of Nityananda Prabhu, then we get peace. Koti-candra-susitala. Just like in daytime, especially in the summer season, we become very much exasperated. But at night, in the evening, as soon as there is moonshine, we become very much satisfied. All day's labor and fatigue is immediately moved. So nitai-pada-kamala, the shade of Nityananda Prabhu's lotus feet, is koti-candra-susitala, as pleasing as one crore of moonshine. One moonshine gives us so much pleasure."

"So if we want actual peace of mind, if we actually want to be free form this material argument, then we must take the shelter of Nityananda Prabhu. Nityananda Prabhu is the strength, spiritual strength. And without spiritual strength you cannot approach Krishna... So we must have spiritual strength. That source of spiritual strength is Balarama. Krishna's next manifestation. Krishna is manifesting Himself through Balarama. So we have to take shelter of Nityananda Prabhu. Nitai pada kamala, koti chandra susitala, je chayaya jagata judaya. The whole world is suffering but if you want peace, then you take the shelter of Nityananda Prabhu..."

- Srila Prabhupada
