Mayapura, West Bengal, India

We honour the birth of Nityananda. My poem to remember him by is the following:


He is indeed by far

The mercy avatar

For he bore the blood

During the love flood

As companion to Gaur

Life was ‘less is more’

Distributing a wealth

For everyone’s health

Committed to the name

And establishing its fame

He went from door to door

In the effort to explore

He went with Haridas

Many gains – no loss

With interesting reception

Prepared for any rejection

Jagai/Madhai, there in queue

The two loud obnoxious two

Met more than their match

When Nitai did dispatch

Totally drunk as hell

They swayed, they fell

Nitai had a thought

“These men shall not rot

They should be given a chance

To sing and to dance

To the ultimate sound

With head up, feet to the ground

If they do succeed

That’s all we need

Gaur’s mission is won

To home we will run”

Unknowing such a plus

The two nasties raised a fuss

Struck the head of Nitai

As if to say “Goodbye”

But Nitai did stand up

Told Gaur not to chop

The thugs’ lives to spare

Hearts turned then and there

The two lowly drunks

Practically became monks

Like a victorious Skanda

Credit to Nityananda
