Today we continued the chapter entitled – “Veṅkaṭa Bhaṭṭa of Śrīraṅga Kṣetra invites Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu to his house”.
Veṅkaṭa Bhaṭṭa begged Lord Caitanya for His mercy to stay at his house for the four months of the rainy season, Cāturmāsya. Lord Caitanya being controlled by the brāhmaṇa’s loving service, agreed and satisfied his desire, being supremely overwhelmed with love. Lord Caitanya was experiencing loving ecstasy, loving tears of Prema flowed from His eyes, His voice was choked up with emotions.
I don’t think anyone else got such mercy! In Navadvīpa He was always in His own house. But in Śrīraṅgam, He stayed for four months, and accepted prasāda from different brāhmaṇas. What mercy!
