Mukham karoti vacalam pangum langayate girim
Yat kripa tam aham vande sri gurum dina tarinam
Paramananda Madhavam Sri Caitanya Isvaram
Vanakkam! You are all very fortunate, that in this temple there are arca avatars. Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda, They are giving out Krsna Prema in this Kali yuga. Normally there are five purusartas. Dharma arta, kama and moksa. But the fifth purusarta is prema, Krsna Prema. Krsna Prema aakum. So this Krsna Prema is very difficult to get. Moksa is easy. But Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda are giving out this Krsna Prema without considering who is qualified and who is not. Krsna Prema is the most blissful and ecstatic happiness. Bhava gives eight asta saatvika ecstacies. Ecstatic symptoms. Like crying, hairs standing on end, voice choking up, laughing uncontrollably, falling unconscious on the ground, and many other symptoms. But Prema is more than that. Who would like Krsna Prema? Haribol! So you are in the right place! Here Lord Caitanya is giving out, Lord Nityananda is giving out the mercy! Both of Them spent considerable time in Tamil Nadu. Lord Caitanya spent four months of the rainy season, in Srirangam. He bathed every day, in the Kaveri day. What to speak of the other places that He visited, throughout the length and breadth of Tamil Nadu! He also went for six years around South India, and He would visit the houses of different grihastas every day. Krsna visited some houses of devotees. But Krsna as Caitanya, visited more houses. Who would like to have Krsna Caitanya visit their house? Haribol! So you are all truly blessed. You can chant the holy names of Krsna, you can worship Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda, Radha Krsna, Lalita Visaka. Krsna, Rukmini, Satyabhama, and Jagannath, Baladeva, Subadra, and Sudarsana cakra. They say that Rohini was telling the queens of Dwaraka, about Krsna’s childhood pastimes in Vrndavana. And since Subadra was in Vrndavana, and she knew, they sent her outside and she watched the door and warn them when Krsna and Balarama came. But we never get tired hearing about Krsna’s pastimes. So Subadra devi listened at the doorway, Rohini devi telling the pastimes. She had such prema ecstasy that her hands disappeared into her body and her eyes opened wide! And Krsna and Balarama came and They wondered what was being told inside! And They found such ecstasy to hear their childhood pastimes that Their mouth was in a smile. Their eyes were wide open. Their arms came somewhat into their bodies. That is Baladeva, Jagannath and Subadra. So They were feeling such ecstasy. The forms you see are the ecstatic form of Krsna, Balarama and Subadra. When you chant Hare Krsna, and render service to Krsna, gradually you will also develop this affectionate love towards Krsna. So this is the real purpose of human life. We should develop our loving attitude towards Krsna. Actually we are all part of the Supreme Lord. When He feels happy, we feel unlimitedly happy. There is a kirtan in Bengal we sing before big functions. Says there is no limit to the transcendental bliss. Anander sima nai, anander sima nai, anander sima nai, niraananda dure jai. Unhappiness goes far away! Nirananda dure jai, Anander sima nai, ananader sima nai, niraananda dure jai, niraananda dure jai. In this world, we are embodied souls. So here, we experience happiness and distress, through our body. Now it is warm weather, hot weather. The fan is nice! But in North India when it is winter, at 1 degree, nobody wants the fan! But here in Chennai, it is usually warm. But now there is a crisis of water! So chanting Hare Krsna, would help to bring water. So all of you should chant and be happy, and be wet! Ha! Ha! Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare! Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare! Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare! Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare! Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare! Haribol! Nanri! Thank you! You chanted very nice! In Andhra Pradesh in the 1970s, there was a drought. For three years no rain. So they arranged a big yajna of 108 kundas. But the brahmanas were not able to chant the mantras properly. So it only produced a lot of smoke, but no rain. Srila Prabhupada began to chant Hare Krsna in Hyderabad, then rain came! So everybody in Tamil Nadu, if they began to chant then they will not have crisis of water. Haribol!
So I was here for about, almost a year. Ajita Goipnath das and his family, they hosted me. And all the devotees of Chennai, were very kind to me. Mayapur is my home, but I stayed in Chennai longer than any other place, out of Mayapur! So I want to thank all of you! Nanri! So I know, it is time for the feast! So I will end here. Chant Hare Krsna and be happy!
