vande ’nantadbhutaisvaryam sri-nityanandam isvaram
yasyechchhaya tat-svarupam ajnenapi nirupyate
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 5.1)

I offer obeisance unto the Lord, Sri Nityananda, whose opulences are wonderful and infinite. By His will, even a fool understands His identity.

sankarsanah karana-toya-sayi
garbhoda-sayi cha payobdhi-sayi
sesas cha yasyamsa-kalah sa nitya-
nandakhya-ramah saranam mamastu
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 1.7)

May Sri Nityananda-Balaram, whose parts and sub-parts are Sankarsan, Karanabdhisayi Visnu, Garbhodasayi Visnu, Ksirabdhisayi Visnu, and Ananta Ses, be my sole shelter.

mayatite vyapi-vaikuntha-loke
purnaisvarye sri-chatur-vyuha-madhye
rupam yasyodbhati sankarsanakhyam
tam sri-nityananda-ramam prapadye
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 1.8)

I surrender unto Sri Nityananda-Balaram, whose form known as Sankarsan resides beyond maya in Vaikunthaloka in the midst of the Chatur-vyuha, replete with all opulences.

maya-bhartajanda-sanghasrayangah
sete saksat karanambhodhi-madhye
yasyaikamsah sri-puman adi-devas
tam sri-nityananda-ramam prapadye
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 1.9)

I surrender unto Sri Nityananda-Balaram, one of whose parts is Karanabdhisayi Visnu, the original Purus-avatar who lies on the Causal Ocean, the shelter of all the material universes, the master of Maya.

yasyamsamsah srila-garbhoda-sayi
yan-nabhy-abjam loka-sanghata-nalam
loka-srastuh sutika-dhama dhatus
tam sri-nityananda-ramam prapadye
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 1.10)

I surrender unto Sri Nityananda-Balaram. The stem from the lotus navel of His part’s part, Garbhodaksayi Visnu, contains the universe’s planets and is the birthplace of Brahma.

yasyamsamsamsah paratmakhilanam
posta visnur bhati dugdhabdhi-sayi
ksauni-bharta yat-kala so ’py anantas
tam sri-nityananda-ramam prapadye
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 1.11)

I surrender unto Sri Nityananda-Balaram. His part’s part’s part, Ksirodaksayi Visnu, is the maintainer and Soul of all souls, and Ksirodaksayi Visnu’s sub-part, Ananta Ses, is the upholder of the Earth.

e-saba pramane jani nityananda-tattva-sima
tahake ‘ananta’ kahi, ki tara mahima
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 5.126)

Through this evidence we understand Nityananda in full. Some call Him ’Ananta’ (‘unlimited’). Is this His greatness?

ei-rupe nityananda ‘ananta’-prakasa
sei-bhave — kahe muni chaitanyera dasa
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 5.134)

Nityananda has unlimited forms, and in all of them He declares, «I am Sri Chaitanya’s servant.»

sei krsna — navadvipe sri-chaitanya-chandra
sei balarama — sange sri-nityananda
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 5.6)

Krishna appeared in Nabadwip as Sri Chaitanyachandra. Balaram appeared with Him as Sri Nityananda.

apane karena krsna-lilara sahaya
srsti-lila-karya kare dhari’ chari kaya
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 5.9)

Balaram personally assists in Krishna’s Pastimes. Assuming four other forms, He performs the work of creation.

srsty-adika seva, — tara ajnara palana
‘sesa’-rupe kare krsnera vividha sevana
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 5.10)

Following His orders, three of these forms perform the service of creating, maintaining, and destroying the material world. In the form of Ananta Ses, He serves Krishna in various ways.

sarva-rupe asvadaye krsna-sevananda
sei balarama — gaura-sange nityananda
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 5.11)

In all these forms He relishes the joy of Krishna’s service. In the company of Sri Gauranga, Balaram is Nityananda.

chaitanya-krpaya haya nityanande rati
nityanande janile apad nahi kati
(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Adi-khanda, 9.220)

One becomes attached to Nityananda by Chaitanya’s mercy, and if one knows Nityananda, then one never undergoes misfortune.

samsarera para ha-i’ bhaktira sagare
ye dubibe se bhajuka nitaichadere
amara prabhura prabhu sri gaurasundara
e bada bharasa chitte dhari nirantara
(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Adi-khanda, 17.152–153)

To cross over material existence and swim in the ocean of devotion, serve Sri Nitaichad. My Master’s Master is Sri Gaurasundar. I hold this great hope in my heart forever.

kiba yati nityananda, kiba bhakta jnani
ya’ra yena mata ichchha, na bolaye keni
ye-se kene chaitanyera nityananda nahe
tabu sei pada-padma rahuka hrdaye
(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Adi-khanda, 9.223-224)

Some consider Nityananda a sannyasi, some consider Him a devotee, and some consider Him a scholar. People may say whatever they like. May Nityananda’s lotus feet remain in heart, even if He is nothing to Sri Chaitanya.

eta parihareo ye papi ninda kare
tabe lathi maro tara sirera upare
(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Adi-khanda, 9.225, 17.158)

Nityananda is most benevolent. I kick the head of any sinner who criticies Him.

madira yavani yadi nityananda dhare
tathapi brahmara vandya kahila tomare
(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Antya-khanda, 6.123)

This I tell to you: even if He takes hold of some wine and an outcaste girl, Nityananda is worshippable to Brahma.

dui bhai eka-tanu — samana-prakasa
nityananda na mana, tomara habe sarva-nasa
ekete visvasa, anye na kara sammana
«ardha-kukkuti-nyaya» tomara pramana
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 5.175-176)

The two brothers, Chaitanya and Nityananda, are one body. They are equal. If you do not accept Nityananda, then you will be ruined. If you have faith in one, but do not respect the other, then your standpoint is ‘half-hen logic’.

kona chaitanyera loka nityananda-prati
‘manda’ bole, hena dekha, — se kevala ‘stuti’
(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Adi-khanda, 9.226)

If any follower of Sri Chaitanya says Nityananda is bad, then see that such statements are in fact praise.

nityananda-svarupe se ninda na laoyaya
ta’na pathe thakile se gaurachandra paya
(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Adi-khanda, 9.229)

If one does not believe in any criticism towards Nityananda and follows His path, then one attains Gaurachandra.

sarva-bhave svami yena haya nityananda
ta’ra haiya bhaji yena prabhu-gaurachandra
(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Adi-khanda, 9.231)

Nityanada in my master in all respects, and being His, I serve Gaurachandra Prabhu.

nityananda avadhuta sabate agala
chaitanyera dasya-preme ha-ila pagala
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 6.47)

The avadhut Nityananda, who is foremost within the society of Sri Chaitanya’s devotees, madly engaged in loving service to Sri Chaitanya.

preme matta nityananda krpa-avatara
uttama, adhama, kichhu na kare vichara
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 5.208)

Mad with divine love, Nityananda, the embodiment of mercy, does not consider who is high and who is low.

prema-pracharana ara pasanda-dalana
dui-karye avadhuta karena bhramana
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Antya-lila, 3.149)

As an Avadhut, He wanders distributing divine love and subduing the wicked.

jaya jaya avadhuta-chandra nityananda
jagat badhila yeha diya prema-phada
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Antya-lila, 8.3)

All glory to Avadhutchandra, who bound the world with a knot of divine love!

nityanandam aham naumi sarvananda-karam param
hari-nama-pradam devam avadhuta-siromanim

I bow down to the crown-jewel of mendicants, the origin of the greatest joy, the giver of the Lord’s Name, Sri Nityananda Prabhu.

saksatei dekha sabe ei tribhuvane
nityananda-dvare pailena prema-dhane
(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Adi-khanda, 9.216)

See directly that everyone in the three worlds has received the wealth of divine love through Nityananda Prabhu.

bhaja gauranga kaha gauranga laha gaurangera nama
ye jana gauranga bhaje sei haya amara prana

Nityananda Prabhu calls out: «Serve Gauranga, speak about Gauranga, and chant Gauranga’s Name! One who serves Gauranga is My very life.»

nache matoyara nitai godrumera mathe
jagat mataya nitai premera malasate
palaya duranta kali padiya bibhrate
ki sukhe bhasila jiva gorachadera nate
dekhiya suniya pasandira buka phate
(Gitavali: Nagar-kirtan, 8.5–7)

Nitai dances madly in fields of Godrumadwip. He maddens the world with a wrestler’s challenge of divine love, and the wicked Kali panics and flees. What sort of joy have the souls been immersed in by Nitai and Gorachad’s dancing?! Seeing and hearing of it, the sinners’ courage shatters.

jaya nityananda-chandra jaya chaitanyera prana
tomara charanaravinde bhakti deha’ dana
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Antya-lila, 11.6)

All glory to Nityanandachandra, the life of Sri Chaitanya! Kindly give me the gift of devotion to Your lotus feet.

nityananda-prasade se gaurachandra jani
nityananda-prasade se vaisnavere chini
nityananda-prasade se ninda yara ksaya
nityananda-prasade se visnu-bhakti haya
(Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat: Madhya-khanda, 22.135–6)

By Nityananda’s mercy, I know Gaurachandra. By Nityananda’s mercy, I recognise the Vaisnavas. By Nityananda’s mercy, one’s offences dissolve. By Nityananda’s mercy, one attains devotion to Visnu.

nityananda-mahima-sindhu ananta, apara
eka kana sparsi matra, — se krpa tahara
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrta: Adi-lila, 5.157)

The ocean of Nityananda’s glory is eternal and infinite. I touch upon one drop of it, by His mercy.

ha ha prabhu nityananda premananda sukhi
krpavalokana kara ami bada duhkhi
(Prarthana: 40. 3)

O Nityananda! You are overjoyed with divine love. Mercifully glance upon me. I am very sad.

ara kabe nitaichada karuna karibe
samsara-vasana more kabe tuchchha ha’be
(Prarthana: 1.2)

When will Nitaichad be merciful to me? When will my worldly desires become insignificant?

kabe nityananda, more kari’ daya
chhadaibe mora visayera maya
diya more nija- charanera chhaya
namera hatete dibe adhikara
(Saranagati: Vijnapti, 6)

When will Nityananda be merciful to me and cause me to abandon my attachment to mundanity? When will He give me the shade of His feet and grant me a place in the marketplace of the Name?
