Started abruptly.

Normally the color of the Ganges is orangish, but that day the Ganges assumed a black color and everybody could see their foreheads. Everyone was madly excited to see Gaurangadev. Then all the devotees ran to Vidyanagar, to the house of Vidya Vaachaspathi. There were thousands and thousands, and lakhs and lakhs of people. Inside the house, Caitanya Mahaprabhu told His mother, I will go to your house and take prasadam there, many times. This was Caitanya Mahaprabhu tried to pacify Sachi mata. Everyone outside was chanting Gauranga! Gauranga! Gauranga! In kirtan. Vidya Vaachaspathi told Caitanya Mahaprabhu that if you do not go out, they will start breaking things. So then Caitanya Mahaprabhu went out and blessed all the people, and all the people paid obeisances at the same time to Him. Then Mahaprabhu told all the devotees to chant Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. After chanting this way, Mahaprabhu went back into the house again. Then He appeared about two kilometers away from that place! The people outside the house of Vidya Vaachaspathi were thinking that Mahaprabhu was still inside the house but Vidya Vaachaspathi said that He was not inside. He sent some people inside to check it out and they saw that Mahaprabhu was really not inside! Their devotion to Mahaprabhu was so much. So this leela took place one day. I am telling this Bengali party that,

I am your ever well-wisher and servant
