Mukham karoti vacalam pangum langayate girim
Yat kripa tam aham vande sri gurum dina tarinam
Paramananda Madhavam Sri Caitanya Isvaram
So as you heard tonight, different groups from around Malaysia and China will have their presentation with me. So I will speak with a short time. There is a story from the Prema Vivarta, by Jagadananda Pandit. After His studies one day, Lord Caitanya along with Jagadananda Pandit and Gadadhar prabhu were running in Godrumdvip. By the Alakananda river, in the Harihara ksetra. Lord Caitanya saw a parrot, a suka pakshi. He said, “you are not different from Sukadeva Goswami. Please tell Me the glories of Radha and Krsna.” And the parrot began to chant, Gaura Gaura! Gaura Gaura! Gaura! Gaura! Gaura! Gaura! Gaura Gaura! Lord Caitanya said, “No, no, no, no. I am a devotee of Radha and Krsna, I want to hear the glories of Radha and Krsna.” The parrot said, “oh, I chant in this way! You chant Your way, I will chant my way! Gaura Gaura! Gaura Gaura! Gaura Gaura! Gaura Gaura! Gaura Gaura! Translate it! Lord Caitanya said “No, no, I want to hear the glories of Radha and Krsna!” And He let the parrot go. The parrot said, for Me You are Krsna and this is Radha, looking at Gadadhar. Since time immemorial I have been chanting this mantra. Gaura Gaura! Gaura Gaura! Gaura Gaura! Gaura Gaura! Gaura Gaura! GAURA GAURA! GAURA GAURA! Lord Caitanya went running away, with His hands over His ears. You are all very fortunate to be devotees in the line of Caitanya Mahaprabhu! He gave out freely love of Krsna! Although He is Krsna, He acted like a devotee. He didn’t accept offenses much. The only offence that He was serious about was vaisnava aparadh. Capala Gopal had offended Srivas and he got leprosy. So then Lord Caitanya one day, He happened to walk where Capala Gopal was living outside the city. Then Capala Gopal paid his prostrate obeisances to Lord Caitanya. You are the most merciful! Please have Your mercy on me! Lord Caitanya said, “No, YOU WILL BURN IN HELL! You have offended a vaisnava, unless that vaisnava forgives you I cannot forgive You!” It was shocking, they had never seen Lord Caitanya in an angry mood like that. So some devotees went to Srivas Thakur, and begged him, please forgive Capala Gopal. But Srivas Thakur said, :” am not a vaisnava! How can I be offended by anyone?” So the devotee said, “you may not think you are a vaisnava. But Lord Caitanya DOES! He said that Capala Gopal will suffer if you don’t forgive him! YOU WANT SOMEONE TO SUFFER BECAUSE OF YOU?”” NO, NO, NO, I DON’T WANT ANYONE TO SUFFER BECAUSE OF ME! “ So then you should forgive him. So he went beside the Ganges to where Capala Gopal was staying. And Capala Gopal fell at the feet of Srivas Thakur and begged him, please forgive me for my offences! Srivas Thakur said, “that if you had knowingly or unknowingly committed an offence, and if Krsna thinks it is an offence, then may he please be forgiven.” As soon as Srivas Thakur said that Lord Caitanya appeared and embraced Capala Gopal! So Capala Gopal was cured of his leprosy and he got accepted in the sankirtan movement of Lord Gauranga! Gauranga! Gauranga! Gauranga! So since there are so many other groups here, I will not speak more tonight. But tomorrow, I will say something more! Haribol! Is this broadcast on Facebook? You mean all these people are famous? They are on Facebook! You are world famous! World-wide famous! Haribol!
