    JAYA JAYA SHRI KRUSHNA! It is a partly false writing. Nityananda was far away from Adhyatma. Nimain Mishra alias Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, for his personal reasons, supported Nitai. He was deeply immersed in carnal pleasures. He married two sisters and gave birth to few children. This is the first time that some one has related him to Balarama Ji. Nonsense. Please think of God and stop spreading such falsehood in His Name. Otherwise, you will suffer the consequences. And what is this?, you say Author is Naveen and writer is Harisankar!
