Hari Haraaya Naama Krishna Yadavaya Naamahari, Gopal Govinda Ram Sri Madhusudhan
Mukham karoti vaachalam…
Today is Putrada Ekadasi here in Chennai. If you are interested in getting a son, then read what this ekadasi’s glories are. Today we had the physical therapy in the morning, then I went tricycling. The doctor said I need sunlight. My skin is too soft! Sunlight would make it better! So today we started a new regime of medicine, instead of taking twice a day, we are now taking once in 24 hours. So if you have difficulty understanding something that I say, then write it down and we will include it in our voice therapy which will be tomorrow. Who can take all these down? Giteshwari Vishnupriya and Kairavachandrika are seeing on the internet and emailing it to me. (The repeater told the audience there: The devotees who are present here if you find words difficult to understand, you can note down and give them to Uddhav prabhu and we will take it up during voice therapy tomorrow.)This evening I had Ekadasi dosa and also Ekadasi chapatis with nut butter and jam. Very sticky!
So this chapter is that, the Lord proves His words to remove the doubt of Srivas Thakur.
Lord Vishwambhar looked at Srivas Thakur’s brother’s daughter, that is, Srivas’s niece, a small girl named Narayani, standing before Him.
Even today amongst the vaishnavas, we know that Narayani, She is the recipient of Lord Caitanya’s mahaprasad remnants. Sometimes ladies question their position in Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s movement. Here is an example how Lord Caitanya gave His mercy to a little girl. And also in the previous verses, He asked Srivas to bring His wife and other family members. So doesn’t matter, which body you have, male body or female body, you get the mercy of Lord Caitanya! HARIBOLl! HARIBOL!
As the Supersoul of all living entities, Shri Gauranga Chandra, He gave the order to Narayani – “Narayani, chant the holy name of Krishna and cry!”
That four-year-old girl became mad in love of Krishna!! She cried out HAAA KRISHNA! HAAA KRISHNA! and she was crying and she forgot herself!
Flowing from her eyes and drenching her body, the tears fell to the ground, filling the area around her with the water of her tears!
Lord Vishwambhar Prabhu said smiling, “now your fears have been dispelled.”
The great orator, Srinivas prabhu, he knew all truths, he raised his arms and spoke the following to the Lord.
You are the form of Time, Bhagavan! When You destroy all the creation, that time I don’t have fear, because I chant Your holy names. Now what fear can I have? You are present in my house! So Kapila muni the incarnation of Godhead spoke to His mother, Devahuti, that the blessings My devotees have, the transcendental opulences, they are never bereft of. Neither weapons or change of time can destroy such opulences because they accept Me as their friend, relative, son, preceptor, benefactor and Supreme deity. They cannot be deprived of their possessions at any time.
As Pandit Srivas speaking in this way, became overwhelmed in spiritual ecstasy, as he and his associates saw the Lord’s manifestation.
He, whom the four Vedas desire to see, was seen by Srivas’s maid servants and the servants.
What should I say about Srivas Pandit’s magnanimous character? The dust from his lotus feet purifies the entire universe!!
Krishna descended from the spiritual world to the house of Vasudeva. Yet He enjoyed various pastimes in the house of Nanda Maharaj.
Similarly, the Lord appeared in the house of Jagannath Mishra. And He enjoyed various pastimes in the house of Srivas Pandit.
So there are eleven more verses in the chapter. It is already quarter after nine. So I will end here for today. We see that Srivas and all his family members and servants, they all got unlimited mercy. So Lord Caitanya, He was giving special mercy to Srivas Pandit and to all his family members and even servants. So by serving His Divine Grace A C Bhakti Vedanta Swami we can also get Nitai Gaur’s special mercy!! So there is a shloka where the Lord tells Arjuna, those who say that they are My devotees actually, they are not My devotees. Those who are the devotees of My devotees are My true devotees! Haribol!
Are there any questions?
