Akrodha Paramananda


akrodha paramānanda nityānanda rāya

abhimāna śūnya nitāi nagare beḍāya


adhama patita jīvera dvāre dvāre giyā

harināma mahā-mantra dicchena bilāiyā


jā’re dekhe tā’re kahe dante tṛṇa dhari’

‘āmāre kiniyā laha bala gaurahari’


eta bali’ nityānanda bhūme gaḍi’ jāya

sonāra parvata jena dhūlāte loṭāya


hena avatāre jā’ra rati nā janmila

locana bale sei pāpī ela āra gela


1) The noble Lord Nityananda is never angry, for He is the personification of supreme transcendental bliss. Devoid of any concept of false ego, Nitai wanders about the town.

2) Going from door to door in the residences of the most fallen and wretched souls, He freely distributes the gift of the Hari-nama mahamantra.

3) He exclaims to whomever he sees while holding straw between his teeth, “Please purchase me by worshipping Gaurahari!”

4) Saying thus, Nityananda Prabhu rolls about on the ground, appearing like a golden mountain tumbling in the dust.

5) Locana Dasa Thakura says, “Whoever has not experienced the awakening of affection for such an avatara as this, that sinful person simply comes and goes uselessly in the cycle of repeated birth and death.”
