by

Srila Vrndavan Das Thakur


sarach-chandra-bhrantim sphurad-amala-kantim gaja-gatim
hari-premonmattam dhrta-parama-sattvam smita-mukham
sadaghurnan-netram kara-kalita-vetram kali-bhidam
bhaje nityanandam bhajana-taru-kandam niravadhi [1]

His face outshines the autumn moon. His spotless complexion glows. He moves like an elephant. He is always mad with divine love for the Lord. His body is made of pure spiritual energy. He smiles. His eyes always roll. He carries a staff and dispels Kali. I serve Sri Nityananda, the root of the tree of devotion, eternally.

rasanam agaram svajana-gana-sarvasvam atulam
tadiyaika-prana-pramita-vasudha-jahnava-patim
sada-premonmadam param-aviditam manda-manasam
bhaje nityanandam bhajana-taru-kandam niravadhi [2]

He is the basis of all rasas. He is everything to the devotees, and incomparable. He the husband of Vasudha and Jahnava, who consider Him more dear than life. He is always mad divine love. He is the subduer of the wicked. I serve Sri Nityananda, the root of the tree of devotion, eternally.

sachi-sunu-prestham nikhila-jagad-istam sukha-mayam
kalau majjaj-jivoddharana-karanoddama-karunam
harer akhyanad va bhava-jaladhi-garvonnati-haram
bhaje nityanandam bhajana-taru-kandam niravadhi [3]

He is very dear to Sri Gaura, He uplifts the whole world, and He is filled with happiness. He bestows unlimited mercy to rescue souls from immersion in Kali. He crushes the swelling pride of the ocean of material existence by chanting the Name. I serve Sri Nityananda, the root of the tree of devotion, eternally.

aye bhratar ninam kali-kalusinam kim nu bhavita
tatha prayaschittam rachaya yad-anayasata ime
vrajanti tvam ittham saha bhagavata mantrayati yo
bhaje nityanandam bhajana-taru-kandam niravadhi [4]

«O Brother! What will be the fate of the souls contaminated by Kali? Mercifully establish a means for them to easily reach You.» I eternally serve Sri Nityananda, the root of the tree of devotion, who talks with the Lord in this way.

yathestham re bhratah kuru hari-hari-dhvanam anisam
tato vah samsarambudhi-tarana-dayo mayi laget
idam bahu-sphotair atati ratayan yah pratigrham
bhaje nityanandam bhajana-taru-kandam niravadhi [5]

«O brothers! Continuously and properly chant the Lord’s Name. Then I will take responsibility for your deliverance from the ocean of material existence.» I eternally serve Sri Nityananda, the root of the tree of devotion, who walks from house to house loudly making this appeal.

balat samsarambhonidhi-harana-kumbhodbhavam aho
satam sreyah-sindhunnati-kumuda-bandhum samuditam
khala-sreni-sphurjittimira-hara-surya-prabham aham
bhaje nityanandam bhajana-taru-kandam niravadhi [6]

Oh! He is a jug to dry up the ocean of material existence for the sadhus. He arises like the moon to flood the ocean of the souls’ good fortune. He is like the sun to destroy the darkness of the miscreants’ sins. I serve Sri Nityananda, the root of the tree of devotion, eternally.

natantam gayantam harim anuvadantam pathi pathi
vrajantam pasyantam svam api na dayantam jana-ganam
prakurvantam santam sa-karuna-drg-antam prakalanad
bhaje nityanandam bhajana-taru-kandam niravadhi [7]

He walks along the path dancing, chanting, calling the Name, and watching at His devotees. He glances upon good souls with merciful eyes. I serve Sri Nityananda, the root of the tree of devotion, eternally.

su-bibhranam bhratuh kara-sarasijam komalataram
mitho vaktralokochchhalita-paramananda-hrdayam
bhramantam madhuryair ahaha madayantam pura-janan
bhaje nityanandam bhajana-taru-kandam niravadhi [8]

When He took hold of His brother’s soft lotus hand, His heart become filled with the greatest joy by the light from His brother’s face. He moves here and there maddening the townspeople with His sweetness. I serve Sri Nityananda, the root of the tree of devotion, eternally.

rasanam adharam rasika-vara-sad-vaisnava-dhanam
rasagaram saram patita-tati-taram smaranatah
param nityanandastakam idam apurvam pathati yah
tad-anghri-dvandvabjam sphuratu nitaram tasya hrdaye [9]

May the lotus feet of Sri Nityananda Prabhu appear in the heart of one who recites this unprecedented and topmost Nityanandastakam, which is an abode of rasa, the wealth of the highest devotees who relish rasa, and the best thing in this world. By remembering it, the fallen are delivered.
