“By the mercy of Lord Nityananda we get the mercy of Radha and Krishna. We should grab onto the two feet of Lord Nityananda or the diksa guru. The gurus, Prabhupada he is coming in the line of Lord Nityananda. It is said that the guru is very dear to Lord Nityananda. So we take the shelter of guru, of Prabhupada. In this way we should not miss the shelter of Lord Nityananda. We should take shelter of Lord Nityananda and in this way we will get Radha and Krishna.”

From the lecture on Nityananda Trayodasi by His Holiness Jayapataka Swami at Sri Mayapur dhama, 2011
