Commentary: Gauḍīya-bhāṣya by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura:
Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu is the emperor of the Vaiṣṇavas. Pure Vaiṣṇavas are always eager to serve the Lord in the mood of separation. By displaying the ideal example of serving Kṛṣṇa in His pastimes of searching for Kṛṣṇa, Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu has achieved domination over Lord Gaurasundara. No one has ever distributed such mercy on the Gauḍīyas as Śrī Nityānanda has in His pastimes of awarding the ecstatic love for Kṛṣṇa that was distributed by the munificence of Śrī Caitanya.
By His mercy there is a ray of hope that the living entities of this material world may become qualified for the service of Lord Gaurasundara’s intimate associates like Śrī Gadādhara, Śrī Rūpa, Śrī Sanātana, Śrī Svarūpa, and Śrī Raghunātha. The activities of relishing the holy names by Vaiṣṇavādhirāja Nityānanda, who pātiyāche nāma-haṭṭa jīvera kāraṇa—“has set up a marketplace for distributing the holy names to the
living entities,” distinguish Him as the Ācārya. Let Him be repeatedly glorified.
