          All glories to Shri Chaitanya Acarya and his soft hearted wife, Laksmipriya.  All glories to the devoted listeners. 

          Upon  hearing about the birth of Chaitanya dasa's son, people forgot their own miseries and anxieties and rushed to see the little boy.  Even the lame and the blind ran to the house of Acarya singing the glories of Radha Krishna.  Meanwhile, Acarya tearfully relished the moon-like face of his son.  Who could estimate the great fortune of Laksmipriya devi to have given birth to such a child.  The entire universe was filled with happiness and the sweet singing of the pastimes of Radha Krishna filled the air.  The blind and the deaf lamented their misfortune at not being able to see or hear the joyful sounds of Harinama. Millions of people came in crowds to the house of Chaitanya dasa, whose happiness knew no bounds.  This is the history  of the birth of Shrinivasa.  Simply by listening to this episode with a devoted heart one's pure love for the Lord can be aroused.

          Keeping faith in the lotus feet of Shri Jahnava and Viracandra, I, Nityananda dasa, describe Prem Vilasa.
