|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 5: The Glories Of Lord Nityānanda Balarāma|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 5.13
rūpaḿ yasyodbhāti sańkarṣaṇākhyaḿ
taḿ śrī-nityānanda-rāmaḿ prapadye
māyā-atīte — beyond the material creation; vyāpi — all-expanding; vaikuṇṭha-loke — in Vaikuṇṭhaloka, the spiritual world; pūrṇa-aiśvarye — endowed with full opulence; śrī-catuḥ-vyūha-madhye — in the quadruple expansions (Vāsudeva, Sańkarṣaṇa, Pradyumna and Aniruddha); rūpam — form; yasya — whose; udbhāti — appears; sańkarṣaṇa-ākhyam — known as Sańkarṣaṇa; tam — to Him; śrī-nityānanda-rāmam — to Lord Balarāma in the form of Lord Nityānanda; prapadye — I surrender.
I surrender unto the lotus feet of Śrī Nityānanda Rāma, who is known as Sańkarṣaṇa in the midst of the catur-vyūha [consisting of Vāsudeva, Sańkarṣaṇa, Pradyumna and Aniruddha]. He possesses full opulences and resides in Vaikuṇṭhaloka, far beyond the material creation.
This is a verse from Śrī Svarūpa Dāmodara Gosvāmī's diary. It appears as the eighth of the first fourteen verses of Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta.
