Importance of taking shelter of Nitai's name

:evergreen_tree:Importance of taking shelter of Nitai’s name from Shrimad Bhagawatam

SB 5.25.11

yan-nāma śrutam anukīrtayed akasmād
ārto vā yadi patitaḥ pralambhanād vā
hanty aṁhaḥ sapadi nṛṇām aśeṣam anyaṁ
kaṁ śeṣād bhagavata āśrayen mumukṣuḥ

Even if he be distressed or degraded, any person who chants the holy name of the Lord, having heard it from a bona fide spiritual master, is immediately purified. Even if he chants the Lord’s name jokingly or by chance, he and anyone who hears him are freed from all sins. Therefore how can anyone seeking disentanglement from the material clutches avoid chanting the name of Lord Śeṣa? Of whom else should one take shelter?

If this is true for Lord Shesh then it is surely true for Lord Nitai as well. Why? Because:

sṛṣṭy-ādika sevā, — tāṅra ājñāra pālana
‘śeṣa’-rūpe kare kṛṣṇera vividha sevana

Nitai executes the orders of Lord Kṛṣṇa in the work of creation, and in the form of Lord Śeṣa He serves Kṛṣṇa in various ways. (CC Ādi 5.10)

saṅkarṣaṇaḥ kāraṇa-toya-śāyī
garbhoda-śāyī ca payo ’bdhi-śāyī
śeṣaś ca yasyāṁśa-kalāḥ sa nityā-
nandākhya-rāmaḥ śaraṇaṁ mamāstu

May Lord Nitai be the object of my constant remembrance. Saṅkarṣaṇa, Śeṣa Nāga and the Viṣṇus who lie on the Kāraṇa Ocean, Garbha Ocean and ocean of milk are His plenary portions and the portions of His plenary portions. (CC Ādi 5.7)

:evergreen_tree: sahasravadana vandon prabhu-balarama
yanhara sahasra-mukhe krsnayasodhama

“With a thousand tongues we should incessantly glorify the Supreme Lord Balarama (Nitai), because His thousand mouths as Ananta Sesa constantly glorify Lord Krishna.” (CB Adi-khanda 1.12)

Such a lovely verse. Shrila Vrindavan das Thakur explains us logically why and how we must glorify Nitai. He says that we must glorify Nitai because Nitai is constantly glorifying Krishna. And how we must glorify Him? We must glorify Nitai with a thousand tongues because He glorifies Krishna with His thousand mouths as Ananta Sesa. Wow! Such a transcendental Nitaimay logic. Now nobody can challenge why we glorify Nitai so much. Shrila Vrindavan das Thakur has defended us for all times to come with his authoritative and extraordinary logic.

HG Nitaimani das prabhuji is diving deep into the vast ocean of Shastras and after churning it…bringing out various manis similar to Kaustubh mani proclaiming the superiority of Lord Nitai… Jaya ho…
