|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 13: The Advent of Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 13.78
ataeva prabhu tāńre bale, 'baḍa bhāi'
kṛṣṇa, balarāma dui — caitanya, nitāi
ataeva — therefore; prabhu — Lord Caitanya; tāńre — unto Viśvarūpa; bale — says; baḍa bhāi — elder brother; kṛṣṇa — Lord Kṛṣṇa; balarāma — and Baladeva; dui — two; caitanya — Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu; nitāi — and Lord Nityānanda Prabhu.
Because Mahā-sańkarṣaṇa is the ingredient and efficient cause of the cosmic manifestation, He is present in every detail of it. Lord Caitanya therefore called Him His elder brother. The two brothers are known as Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma in the spiritual world, but at the present moment they are Caitanya and Nitāi. Therefore the conclusion is that Nityānanda Prabhu is the original Sańkarṣaṇa, Baladeva.
