nacate bhali gauranga rangiya
†††† His body flooded with love, Lord Chaitanya happily dances.
†caturmukha pancamukha adi deva-gan

†††† Without the Lord's order, no one has the power to see Him. Again and again the demigods serve the Lord.
Text 4 Every day the demigods watched the Lord's pastimes. When the Lord slept they went to their homes.
Text 5 Seeing the deliverance of the two brahmana-demons, the demigods happily said,
Text 6 "Lord Chaitanya is so merciful that He delivered even these two.
Text 7 "By doing this, the Lord has placed hope in my heart. Now I hope, `Certainly I wil also be delivered'. "
Text 8 As they returned to their homes, the demigods happily spoke these words among themselves.
Text 9 Yamaraja, the king of pious deeds, regularly came to Lord Chaitanya's home, and thus he saw all these activities of the Lord.
†Lord Yamaraja asked Citragupta, "What sins did these two perform, sins that the Lord forgave?"
†Citragupta replied, "Please hear, O Yamaraja. Why should you struggle to attain what cannot be attained?
†"If a hundred thousand scribes write for one month, they will not soon come to the end of their sins.
†"If you wish to hear the reports of the hundred thousand scribes, then by all means hear them..
†"The messengers never stop bringing reports of these two sinners' sins. The scribes have come to thinks these reports a great annoyance.
†"At every moment reporting these two sinners' sins, the messengers are so exhausted they are on the verge of death."
†The messengers said, "These two sinners commit so many sins, that I find it a great burden to write them all. Why must I suffer in this way?
†"No proper punishment is written for the many sins I have written. The records are big like a mountain.
†"We scribes weep as record the sins of these two sinners. How will we survive the torture we feel?
†"Lord Chaitanya made those sins a small as a sesame seed. And then He threw that sesame seed far away. Please give the order, and we will throw all these records into the ocean."
†Yamaraja had never seen anything as glorious as the mercy that delivered these two sinners.
†Yamaraja is by nature a great Vaishnava. He is religion personified. He knows all that is in the heart of the religion of devotional service.
†When he heard Citragupta's words, Yamaraja at once forgot his own body. He was filled the ecstasy of love for Lord Krishna.
†He fell unconscious on his chariot. There were no signs of life anywhere on his body.
†There was a great commotion. Citragupta and the others grasped Yamaraja's body and wept.
†Traveling in their chariots, the demigods sang a kirtana. But Yamaraja's chariot was filled with lamentation.
†Having see the deliverance of the two brahmana-demons, the demigods were singing the glories of the Lord as they traveled.
†The demigods headed by Siva, Brahma, and Ananta Sesha, and the sages headed by Narada all sang about the deliverance of the two sinners.
†Some demigods had never known such a blissful kirtana. Other demigods, having seen the Lord's mercy, wept.
†When they saw that Yamaraja was motionless on his chariot, all the demigods went there.
†Ananta Sesha, Brahma, Siva, and the sages headed by Narada saw that Yamaraja had fallen unconscious.
†Not knowing the reason, they were very surprised. Then Citragupta described everything.
†Aware that Yamaraja had fainted in an ecstasy of love for Lord Krishna, Brahma and Siva sang a kirtana into Yamaraja's ear.
†Hearing the kirtana, Yamaraja at once sat up. Again conscious, Yamaraja danced like a raving madman.
†A supremely blissful kirtana arose among the demigods. Filled with the ecstasy of love of Lord Krishna, Yamaraja, the son of Suryadeva, danced.
†Seeing Yamaraja danced, all the other demigods also danced. Brahma, Siva, Narada, and the others all danced.
†Please attentively hear of the demigods' dancing. For now, this account is very confidential, but some day the Vedas will openly reveal all this.
