Lord Caitanya said this arrangement was not possible for a human being. He must be an incarnation of Mahesh. As a fact, Advaita Gosain is the incarnation of Maha Vishnu and Sadashiva. He came as an associate of Lord Caitanya to give love of Godhead to all the people. So thank you all for helping in distributing the prasadam, those who have cooked or otherwise helped. (Mike working now?). So Advaita is the incarnation of Maha Vishnu and Sadashiva. So please take some prasadam also, even a morsel. Now I am going to speak little bit in Bengali. Hare Krishna!
Guru maharaj now spoke a little in Bengali:
So here the program was initiated by Shanti Saka Goswami. He invited us that this program be conducted by us. That is why for almost twenty years now, we have been doing it. Caitanyadev came here on Govinda Dvadasi, which is the disappearance day of Madhavendra Puri. All the vaishnava devotees are doing service to Lord Govinda. Some are doing kirtan, some are cooking, some cooking, some honoring prasad. Nityananda prabhu is offering garlands and chandan, sandalwood paste, to devotees. And one devotee is washing the feet of all the devotees. This way all the devotees are immersed in the service of Krishna. They are soaked in Krishna prema! Caitanyadev says that at this place, on this thithi, whoever honors prasadam, they will get Govinda bhakti! I am very grateful that you are all honoring Krishna prasad – those who are distributing the prasad, those who have cooked the prasad. The chairman of Shantipur has come, the current sevite and his son are also assisting in this program. People have come from far, far away for this festival, from various countries, to serve you. Shantipur is a very special, sacred place in Gaura Mandal Bhumi. Here you are all residents of the dham. We have a special opportunity to serve all of you! I would have liked to personally mix with you but, as I have had an operation some time ago, the doctor advised that it is not advisable to mix as I could easily catch infection. That is why I have come here and offer my greetings to all of you – please honor prasad, and get the love of Advaita, Nityananda and Gauranga. Haribol!
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare!
Now again guru maharaj continued in English:
Those who are distributing prasadam, some people hide under their cloth, some tiffin carrier they need to take home to feed their goats! It is not for goats; it is for human beings. They have to come here and take prasadam! And then they will get Govinda bhakti. Not taking home for the chaagols (goats) cows or whatever!! So thank you all for being here. This is the place where Lord Caitanya came and saw His mother after taking sanyas. He came here again after ten years on the Govinda Dvadasi. So today is Govinda Dvadasi, today is a sacred thithi. Madhavendra Puri disappeared and went back to the spiritual world on this day, and we are helping Advaita Gosain in celebrating this festival. So you are all rendering a very confidential service to Lord Caitanya and Advaita Gosain!!a Haribol! Haribol! Haribol! Gauuuuranga! Gauuuuranga! Nitaaaaai! NItaaaaai!, Advaita Gosain!, Advaita Gosain, Advaita Gosain!
