One day Syama dasa and Mohana dasa, two leading disciples of Advaita Prabhu, performed kirtana in Santipura, and Advaita Prabhu extensively danced in ecstasy. Six hours passed into the night as Syama dasa and Mohana dasa, who understood Advaita Prabhu's feelings, sang a kirtana about Sri Radhika and Madana Gopala's Sri Vrndavana-enjoyments. Gradually Advaita Prabhu entered into an internal state of transcendental trance called antar-dasa. Only after six hours the two brothers stopped the kirtana and began to fan Advaita Prabhu, who had goosebumps as large as Kadamba-blossoms on His skin, that had turned brightly golden. Tears streamed from His eyes as He cried out: "ha radha gopalal" Holding Syama and Mohana's hands, Advaita Prabhu said: "Come, let us go into the kuhja there we can witness the ecstatic dancing of Radha and Krsna. After They finished dancing I will dance, that will please Them greatly! Their gaits and threefold bending postures are so lovely they greatly please and delight My eyes and mind. Sri Krsna took Radhika's ear-decorating Campaka-buds and placed them on His own ears. After thus touching Sri Radha's lotus-face, Krsna danced in great joy, and Radha pierced Him with Her glances. Then She smiled and looked at Me, so I held Syama's feet and seated the two lovers. After I served Them for a while They went into a kuhja kutira, where I brought Them betel leaves.As Advaita Prabhu said this, He was seized by conflicting ecstasies (bhdva sabalya). When He saw that people were watching Him He ended His absorption in Vraja-ecstasy and returned to external consciousness. As Advaita Prabhu recollected all this with faltering voice, His servants served His lotus feet.
