Jayapatākā Swami: I don’t know, when I am telling the pastime, I personally see it,and I feel it. And it is very difficult to tell the pastime of how Lord Caitanya leaving, with the mood of mother Śacī. But somehow Lord Caitanya is satisfying her, He is solacing her. But I don’t think there is any way you can satisfy her. So, the Lord is the Lord of all the rasas,and I don’t exactly know what your question, but if you are able to feel a little bit of the transcendental emotion of the Lord, then that will be my success. So, if you don’t feel anything, at least by listening, maybe eventually you will be able to feel. So how Kholaveca Śrīdhara brought a lāu, a bottle gourd, the Lord is thinking that this pure devotee has brought Me an offering of bottle gourd, and I will leave tonight. Tomorrow I won’t be able to take it. And then He told His mother to cook it up, and someone else, a fortunate soul, we don’t know who, he brought a pot of milk. So, Lord Caitanya, He said this is very good, Cook the lāu, the bottle gourd and the milk together. So we see how merciful the Lord is and how much He appreciates His devotees. That, He, just to please His devotee, He is taking the offering. Although normally He wouldn’t be taking this, bottle gourd at night.  So, how the Lord is so merciful to His devotees, how He is so kind. At the same time, He is leaving to take sannyāsa, and now He is trying to solace His mother, console His mother. And He is going to break the hearts for many people. But He is independent, and He is doing this for His pastime. So it‘s very interesting to see – we are getting real scientific knowledge about the Personality of Godhead, how wonderful He is,and the impersonalists, the Māyāvādīs, the materialists, they have no idea. They are not into this confidential knowledge of the Lord. The impersonalists think that He is a material manifestation. They don’t believe that any Personality can be spiritual. They think personality, by definition is material. They believe that the Supreme Truth is impersonal. But the Lord, He is sac-cid-ānanda – eternal, blissful and knowledge. And only the devotees can appreciate. And actually, the pastime of Lord Caitanya are post-graduate studies of the Personality of Godhead. So, we hope that all of you appreciate these pastimes of Lord Kṛṣṇa Caitanya.
