Mukham karoti vacalam pangum langayate girim
Yat kripa tam aham vande sri gurum dina tarinam
Paramananda Madhavam Sri Caitanya Isvaram
So here we had a kal baisak storm. In this summer season, some afternoons this kal baisak storm comes. That is why we are having you stay on the eastern side under the shade of the cantilever. So we hope that you can stay high and dry. I wanted to go to the boat festival but I was busy discussing with Shubha Jain and family. So by the time it finished, it was too late. We have discussed some of the glories of Lord Nityananda and then we discussed how Lord Nityananda went from Mathura to Navadvip. How Lord Caitanya told of His dream and how Srivas and Haridas went to look for Lord Nityananda. They reported that they looked throughout Navadvip, but they could not find anyone who met the description of Lord Nityananda, the description He, Lord Caitanya gave. So Lord Gauranga leads devotees to find Nityananda Prabhu. Caitanya Caritamrita Mahakavya.
So seeing the devotees assembled, Lord Caitanya with a voice as deep as a rumbling cloud, He spoke wise words “I have heard that the intelligent avadoota Nityananda has come here. Can you tell us as to how We will see Him?”
Oh Sriram, Mukunda and Murari Gupta! Oh Narayana! Go quickly from here, going to where the great soul of great fortune is residing. Bring Him here!
Ordered by Gauranga Mahaprabhu the devotees went and searched everywhere on the road but did not see Nityananda. Again they went and said, “we could not find Him anywhere. What should we do?”
The Lord again spoke; you will not see Him now. You will see Him in the evening. Go home and come here in the evening. Then they went home.
In the evening while walking on the path, the merciful Lord Gauranga seeing Murari the doctor, spoke in a serious tone “the avadoota is here in Nandan Acarya’s house. Go there and quickly bring Him here.” Following is the version of Murari Gupta. We will read that tomorrow. Any questions?
Today is the appearance day of Sita devi. She is the incarnation of Bhudevi. And Visnupriya is also Bhudevi. The Lord has three consorts as Narayana – Sridevi, Bhudevi and Niladevi. So Sridevi was Laksmipriya. Bhudevi is Visnupriya. And Navadvip dham is Niladevi. Have you seen Navadvip dham? Navadvip dham is Niladevi. So the Lord tells Sita devi in Modrumadvip that in this lila I will banish You to the forest. In the lila of Lord Gauranga, I will banish Myself to the forest. Taking sanyas is also in one sense going to the forest. Sita was not happy to hear either. Jai Sri Jagannath Baladev Subhadra ki jai. They made Jagannath green, Rama lila, Lakshman and Subhadra. Sita devi? Rama, Lakshman, Hanuman. Show them. You saw? The beautiful form of Lord Jagannath as Lord Ramacandra? Have you seen? Who wants to see it? Any other question?
Jalangi, how are the Chinese devotees? (Although they cannot come here, the Chinese devotees in China and elsewhere are very enthusiastic to hear your classes, guru maharaj said Acintaya Caitanya das prabhu, the repeater.) Guru maharaj said, thank you.
Question: Hare Krsna guru maharaj: PAMRO: Niladevi is Navadvip dham, what can we do to please her to see the dham? Rasapriya Gopika devi dasi.
Guru maharaj: Well, Prauda maya is the protectress of the dham. Vrdha Siva is the protector of the dham. So by their mercy one can enter the esoteric aspects of the dham. Just like there are ten offences to the holy name, there are ten offences to the dham. So we should avoid the ten offences and we should try to develop the Navadvip dham so that we can get the mercy of Niladevi, and get the complete shelter of Navadvip dham.
Same question by Sujitendriya das.
Now we are going to wish Padmakshi Sri a happy birthday, and I am supposed to cut a cake.
