SRI NITYANANDA TATTVA
By His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta
May Nityananda Rama be the object of my constant remembrance. Sankarsana, sesa Naga and the Visnu who lie on the Karana Ocean, Garbha Ocean and the ocean of milk are the plenary portions and His portions of His plenary portions.
I surrender unto the lotus feet of Nityananda Rama, who is known as Sankarsana in the midst of the catur-vyaha (consisting of Vasudeva, Sankarsana, Pradyumna and Aniruddha). He possesses full opulences and resides in Vaikunthaloka, far beyond the material creation.
I offer my full obeisances unto the feet of Nityananda Rama, whose partial representation called Karanodakasayi Visnu, lying on the Karana Ocean, is the original purusa, the master of the illusionary energy, and the shelter of all the universes.
I offer my full obeisances unto the feet of Nityananda Rama, a partial part of whom is Garbhodakasayi Visnu. From the navel of Garbhodakasayi Visnu sprouts the lotus that is the birthplace of Brahma, the engineer of the universe. The stem of that lotus is the resting place of the multitude of planets.
I offer my respectful obeisances unto the feet of Nityananda Rama, whose secondary part is the Visnu lying in the ocean of milk. That Ksirodakasayi Visnu is the Supersoul of all living entities and the maintainer of all the universes. Sesa Naga is His further sub-part.
