Mukham karoti vacalam pangum langayate girim
Yat kripa tam aham vande sri gurum dina tarinam
Paramananda Madhavam Sri Caitanya Isvaram
I went to address the happy couple Sridam and Kirtika Kumari. So that is why we are a little late! We were reading the result of hearing the narration of the meeting of NP and Gauuuuranga! Kya hota hai? What is going on?
Lord Gauranga happily performed the Harinam sankirtan, glorifying the qualities of Lord Hari! He danced in ecstasy and Lord Nityananda also danced!
So when they finished Their dance, the two sat down and filled with bliss, all the devotees fixed their eyes on the Lord.
Caitanya Carita Mahakavya in Sanskrit:
“Seeing this the Lord performed kirtan and danced dedicated to Lord Nityananda’s lotus feet and took His dust from the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda and applied it to all the devotees.”
Who would like to get the dust of Lord Nityananda’s lotus feet? Nitai Gaur! Haribol! Haribol!
Murari Gupta Korca:
“When the Kamalapati finished dancing, He collected Nityananda’s foot dust and placed it on the heads of His servants for their purification.”
See so Lord Caitanya, He took the dust from Lord Nityananda’s lotus feet and placed it on all His devotees’ heads. Lord Nityananda is the original guru and He teaches by His example, how to worship Lord Gauranga. Lord Gauranga also reciprocates with Him and He took His foot dust and put on the head of His servants, thus purifying them. Haribol!
So when the devotees got Lord Nityananda’s foot dust, they became overwhelmed with love, with ecstatic spiritual love and their eyes were filled with tears of love and their consciousness was deeply touched!
So Murari Gupta smiled and said, You understand each other! But we do not understand anything You are saying! So Gauranga and Nityananda Prabhus what they were talking among themselves cpi;d not be understood by any of the other. It meants that their conversations were extremely confidential. They were discussing things which they had experienced, but which others had no access to. So this was admitted by Murari Gupta. So indirectly he was asking them to explain what they were talking about but out of politeness he could not ask directly!
Srivas said, what can we understand of that? It is like discussions between Madhava and Sankara when they worship each other! What can we understand? Previoulsy Lord Siva and Lord Hari worshipped each other This was bewildering to the common people. They did not understand why They were doing this! So similarly they could not understand why Lord Nityananda and Lord Gauranga were worshiping each other! And what They were discussing. Then Gadadhara spoke.
So Gadadhara said, oh Pandit! Whatever you said is correct. I think that Their characteristics resemble the discussions between Rama and Laksmana. So different people had different realizations but each realization was transcendental! Gadadhara thought that their sentiments resembled Rama and Laksmana when They met each other! And others thought, Siva and Hari. Like that they were different perspectives but everyone understood that there was something very confidential and transcendental!
Someone said These two are just like two Cupids. Someone said These two are like Krsna and Balarama. So by saying they are like Cupid, meant that they were the basis of beauty and the qualities of attraction of this material world.
Someone else said, I don’t know much specifically, but it seems like on the lap of Krsna, Anantadeva Sesa is lying there. Normally, Krsna is lying on Anantasesa, but here, Anantasesa’s origin is lying on Krsna’s lap, so They have exchanged their positions.
Someone else said, just like two friends, Krsna and Arjuna, because They have shown They are filled with such affection!
Someone else said it seems that the two are very well known to each other. I don’t understand anything. They speak through Their gestures. Tare tore! Someone else said They are so compatible with each other, that Their affection for each other cannot be understood by ordinary people, we can only see a few gestures!
In this way all the devotees, they discussed with great happiness, the Lord’s meeting with Lord Nityananda.
The meeting between Lord Nityananda and Gauracandra, whoever hears about this is FREED FROM MATERIAL BONDAGE! Haribol! Haribol! Nitai Gauracandra! So this transcendental meeting between Lord Nityananda and Lord Gauranga is so purifying that if someone hears it, their faith in devotion, their bondage to the material world is freed! Haribol! That is how important it is to listen, to read, to hear the pastimes of Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda. Haribol! Haribol! Hari Hari Hari Haribol! Nimai, Nimai! Mi Ni Mi Ni!
Lord Nityananda alone serves Lord Caitanya as His companion, His friend, brother, His umbrella, His bed and His carrier. Haribol! So in Caitanya Caritamrita, Adi Lila 5th Chapter verses 123 and 124, it is stated:
“He serves Lord Krsna assuming all the following forms: umbrella, slippers, bedding, pillow, garments, resting chair, residence, sacred thread and throne. He is thus called Lord Sesa for He has attained the ultimate end of servitude to Krsna. He takes many forms for the service of Krsna and thus He serves the Lord.”
Lord Nityananda serves Lord Gauranga in many forms, in various ways, out of His own sweet will! Whatever He gives, only one who is favored by Him, will be eligible to serve the Lord. So when you receive the mercy of Lord Nityananda, the living entity becomes qualified to serve Lord Gaurasundara. So He is the source of all qualifications for serving the Lord. So out of His compassion, Lord Nityananda bestows the qualification to serve the Lord on others.
Lord Mahadeva, the original greatest vaisnava and great yogi, He does not know the limit of Lord Nityananda’s glories! So Lord Siva was most grave and controlled, and is in the category of the Supreme Controller, is unable to serve Lord Gauranga, in all respects like Lord Nityananda.
Not knowing the glories of Lord Nityananda, if someone criticizes Him, or blasphemes Him, not understanding the depth of His character, even if he has Visnu’s devotional service, he is obstructed. So if one doesn’t understand the glories of Lord Nityananda and blasphemes Him, they will be checked in their progress in devotional service.
My only desire is that Nityanandarama who is most dear to Lord Caitanya, He may be the Lord of My life! Also Lord Nityananda’s body is not different from Lord Caitanya’s body, because both of them are sat cit ananda, transcendental. How many more verses?
By Lord Nityananda’s mercy my mind became attracted to Lord Caitanya. By Lord Nityananda’s order, I am writing this glorification of Lord Caitanya!
Just like Jagannath and Yadunath had different names, but the same person, in this way the names of Nityananda and Baladeva are only different in name. Haribol! So Krsna and Balarama and Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda had different pastimes, otherwise They are the same people. Haribol!
Those who want to cross the ocean of birth and death, of material existence and submerge in the ocean of devotional service, should worship Lord Nitaicanda!
Those who attentively chant these topics, which He discussed with His associates, they receive the benediction given by Viswambar. So if someone glorifies Lord Caitanya under the directions of Lord Nityananda, He along with his associates, gets the benediction of Lord Caitanya.
The name of Viswambar is very rare in this world. He is Lord Caitanya, life and soul and wealth of everyone! Who is Viswambar? You know? Gauranga! There is name for Gauranga! He holds the whole world in His hand! He maintains the whole universe! Viswambar! He is Sri Caitanya. So whoever takes the shelter of Lord Nityananda, who glorifies the process of taking shelter of Lord Nityananda, he is very dear to Lord Viswambar. So such good fortune is not possible for everyone, only for the most fortunate! Who here wants to be fortunate? Thank you!
“Sri Gauranga lila Smarana Mangala Stothram – Verse 19, Auspicious verse for remembering Lord Gauranga’s pastimes by Srila Bhakti Vinoda Thakura.”
So this is in Sanskrit.
“When Lord Nityananda came, Lord Gaura displayed the Supreme Personality of Godhead’s pastimes. I offer my respectful obeisances to the all-powerful Lord Gaurasundara, who, revealing His six-armed form, delights the eyes.”
Thus ends the chapter entitled The result of hearing the narration of the meeting of Nityananda Prabhu and Gauranga! Haribol!
So how do you feel having your bondage terminated? Very good!
Nitai Gauranga! Nitai Gauranga jaya Nitai Gauranga! Nitai Gauranga! Nitai Gauranga jaya Nitai Gauranga!
Any questions on these verses?
Just for your information. Probably you already know. Modi has won by a vast majority! 354 seats, against Congress’s 94. No questions? Any way it is too late!
Ramananda Rai’s disappearance. I think he is an incarnation of Visakadevi? He assisted Lord Caitanya in His intimate pastimes. Along with the incarnation of Lalita, who was Swarup Damodar. So in Mayapur there are so many different festivals going on. They all ask me to come. Lord Jagannath is having another boat festival tomorrow but I don’t think I will go. If I go, I will go early.
We will also give a big welcome to Hladini’s mother who is also an initiated devotee, Saci Dayamoi devi dasi! Gauranga! Nitai Gaur! Haribol! Haribol! Haribol!
