Sri Guru Nityananda Prabhu

Srila Gour Govinda Swami from the book Sri Guru Nityananda Prabhu

"Nityananda Prabhu is very dear to Sriman Gauranga Mahaprabhu and He is mercifully disposed to the welfare of every living entity in the universe. He is always intoxicated with Krsna-prema and just a merciful glance from Him will turn anyone mad with love of Krsna. He comes to this material world in this Kali yuga to deliver the sinful persons. He is so merciful, unlimitedly merciful one cannot trace out the end of this mercy, it is unlimited mercy. He chants and does Hari-kirtan and preaches. He delivers the fallen souls here in the material world. In Bhagavad-gita it has been said, daivi hy esa guna-mayi, mama maya duratyaya. The manifestation of maya-sakti is very, very difficult to surmount. This maya-sakti is insurmountable. But Sri Nityananda Prabhu, by doing harinama-sankirtana just crushes the pride of this maya-sakti and He has shown a very easy way how to cross this material ocean of nescience. This bhakti, devotional service is like a creeper, bhakti-lata. And the root of that creeper is Nityananda Prabhu. Do you understand? So I prostrate myself at His lotus feet."

"The mula-guru-tattva, original guru-tattva is Nityananda-tattva. So by gradual descending Sri Guru has come to us which is the mercy manifestation of Nityananda Prabhu, that is Nityananda-tattva; He has come to us. So Nitaicand is both diksa and siksa-guru. He is guru-tattva. Only difference is the activities, lilas, nothing else."
