Jayapataka Swami:  Lord Nityananda, He was in Vrndavana and He realized that Lord Caitanya had started the sankirtan movement. So He took Sridhama and (audio break) Abhiram Thakur and they went to Navadvip. They stayed in the Nandan Acarya temple. Then, Lord Caitanya had sent his devotees out but nobody could find Lord Nityananda. Then Lord Caitanya said, were you looking for Lord Nityananda? They said, yes. He said, no wonder you could not find Him. You cannot find the Lord by looking for Him, He has to reveal Himself to you. So if you want to realize the Supreme Personality of Godhead, He has to reveal Himself to you. Srila Prabhupada said that we should try to do such service to Lord Krsna, Lord Caitanya, then they would want to meet us. So anyway, Lord Caitanya told the devotees that I can find Him, you cannot find Him. I can find Him. So next morning they went out in kirtan, Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. So Lord Nityananda, He heard the kirtan and His hairs stood on end and He stood up. And then Lord Caitanya entered into the courtyard of Nandan Acarya and then He saw Lord Nityananda! Nitai! And then Lord Nityananda saw Gauranga and said, Gauuuuranga! Nityananda! Gauranga! Nityananda! Gauranga! Nityananda! Gauranga! And then They came and embraced each other. All the devotees were Haribol! Haribol! Nitai Gaur Haribol! Haribol! Hari Hari Hari Hari bol! Nitai! Nitai! Nitia! Gaura! Gaura! Gaura! Nitai Gaura! Nitai Gaurai! Nitai Gaura! Nitai! Nitai! Gaura! Gaura!
