Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: Is my singing giving you goose

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: It is most beautiful pastimes when

Lord Gauranga delivered a puppy in HIs childhood

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: does anyone know that?

xxxx: no maharaji

xxx: i read but forgot

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 282. With many playful boys He

played many games. With many boys He enjoyed childhood pastimes,

blissful and wonderful pastimes. 283. Playing and playing, He

suddenly met two or four puppies. Very happy, Lord Gaura-Hari chose

one of them. 284. Then one of His companions said: "Listen

Visvambhara. You chose the best puppy and left the ugly ones for us.

You go home. We won't play with You." 285. Then Lord Visvambhara

said: "This puppy belongs to all of us. Come to My house and We'll

all play with him." 286. Speaking these words, and taking the puppy

with Him, Lord Gaura went to His house. Arriving home, He put a rope

around the puppy's neck and tied him to the veranda.

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: This is not the one from Cc, that is

in Puri, this is in Navadvipa.

swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 287. All this time Lord

Visvambhara's mother was busy with household chores. Then,

accompanied by the village ladies, she went to bathe in the Ganga.

288. Now the house now empty. Accompnaied by the boys, Lord

Visvambhara played many games with the puppy. They all became covered

with dust. 289. As they played and played, a quarrel was born among

the boys. One boy praised Lord Gaura-Hari, and another boy rebuked

Him. 290. Lord Gaura said: "Every day you come, and every day you

pick a fight. Why do you act like that?" The other boy said: "I know

what You're like. You stole the puppy." 291. Angry at heart, that boy

ran off. Meeting Mother Saci, with a voice choked with anger he

called out: 292. "Listen! Listen! Your Visvambhara has a pet puppy.

One moment He hug

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 292. "Listen! Listen! Your

Visvambhara has a pet puppy. One moment He hugs the puppy. The next

moment He holds the puppy's neck. Go and see for yourself." 293.

Hearing the boy's words, Saci hurried home. She saw the puppy in Lord

Visvambhara's lap, 294. Putting her hand to her head, Mother Saci

said: "Why do You play like this? I do not know. There are so many

ways You could play. Still You play with a puppy. You are very

mischievous. 295. "Your father is very religious. You are his son.

What will the people say? What happiness do You think You will find

by playing with a puppy? 296. "You are a brahmana's son, but You do

not even slightly act like one. What good words will I speak to

defend You?

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: Ah, the words I will hear will be

like an iron spear pushed into my heart. 297. "What happiness do You

find by covering Your beautiful form with dust? I bow my head to

speak such words. I feel that flames burn in my mouth. 298. "How many

moons does Your face defeat? Your limbs are like lightning. You do

not wear nice garments. Instead You cover Your limbs with dust and

stay among low-class boys." 299. Angrily pressing her teeth to her

lip, Saci-devi rebuked all the boys. To Lord Gaura she said: "Go to

Your room and take Your puppy with You. You can renounce Your mother

and father." 300. After speaking these words, she looked at her son's

face. She was overcome with bliss. Then she said: "Come. Dear one,

come and sit in my lap. Be quiet. I will kiss Your face.

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: I am so sorry for posting so fast

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 301. "Leave Your dog, O dear one,

and bathe in ths Ganga's waters. Sio hours of the day have already

passed. And You are not hungry? How much trouble do You give to me?

302. "Tie up your puppy, and go take Your bath. Later You can play

with Your puppy. Now You should eat some lunch." 303. As a golden

lotus wilts in the hot sunshine, so Lord Gaura's face wilted. On the

tip of His nose a drop of perspiration awakened. Gazing at her son,

Saci felt her life breath split apart. 304. Hearing Mother Saci's

words, Lord Visvambhara smiled and said: "I will go to bathe." 305.

Speaking these words, the Lord hugged His mother's neck and prepared

for His bath. Wiping the dust from His face, Mother Saci anointed the

Lord's limbs with scented oil.

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 306. For His bath Lord Visvambhara

went to the Ganga's bank. He happily palyed with His friends in the

Ganga's waters. 307. Lord Visvambhara's form was wonderful and

immovable like Mount Sumeru. As a wild elephant plays in the water

with its companions, so Lord Visvambhara played in the water with His

friends. 308. Meanwhile Saci-devi set the puppy free. She said: "I do

not know where the puppy went. Perhaps the puppy ran to his own

mother." 309. One of the boys was there at that time. He ran to the

Ganga's bank and said: "Visvambhara, Your mother set the puppy free."

310. Hearing the boy's words, the Lord ran home. He saw that the

puppy was gone.


Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 311. He looked in the four

directions. He did not see the puppy. His heart burned with flames of

anger. He wept. He rebuked His mother. He was overcome with grief for

His puppy. 312. He said: "Listen, O foolish mother. Why did you do

that? You gave Me great suffering. That puppy was very beautiful. Why

did you do that?" 313. Saci said: "I did not know what happened to

Your puppy. Perhaps some boys came and stole him. 314. "Why must You

cry for a puppy? Tomorrow I will search in forest after forest. I

will find Your puppy and bring him back. 315. "Don't lament. Stop

Your lament. I will bring back Your puppy. I promise. Don't weep.

Please don't weep anymore." 316. After speaking these words, she

wiped the tears from her son's face and hugged Him.

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: azing at His face, she became filled

with bliss. She kissed Him millions and millions of times. 317. She

wiped His limbs, pretending to make Him a little more clean, and then

she bathed Him with the Ganga's waters. Then she fed Him many

delicious sandesa, modaka, ksira, and kadalaka candies. 318. She tied

His hair in a topknot and she decorated His eyes with splendid black

kajjala. She made Him completely splendid. 319. Around His waist she

tied a red sash that hung to His toes. On His chest she rested a

string of pearls. On His forehead she placed sandal tilaka. 320. She

decorated Him with bracelets and armlets of priceless jewels. On His

feet she placed anklets. Grasping ksira and ladu candies in His

hands, He went to play with the boys.

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 321. His graceful walking defeated

the graceful wild elephants. His voice was like thick honey.

Surrounded by the boys, Lord Gaura, the king of the brahmanas, was

like a moon surrounded by stars. 322. Gazing at the Lord as He

played, the demigods all smiled. Seeing that Lord Gaura touched even

cats and dogs, Locana dasa is filled with wonder.

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 322. Gazing at the Lord as He

played, the demigods all smiled. Seeing that Lord Gaura touched even

cats and dogs, Locana dasa is filled with wonder.

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: Lord Gauranga is the only

incarnation who personally touched cats and dogs.

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: I will tell you

xxx: where is the poor puppy?

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 323. By Lord Gauranga's touch a dog

became fortunate. Abandoning his dog's nature, he became filled with

transcendental knowledge. 324. Calling out, "Radha'-Krishna! Govinda!",

the dog danced. Everyone in Nadiya ran to see him. 325. Everyone

watched as the dog manifested signs of ecstasy. The hairs of his body

stood erect. His eyes were filled with tears. 326. That soul suddenly

renounced his dog's body and went to Lord Krishna's abode of Goloka.

327. A divine airplane suddenly arrived and took that soul on the

path in the sky.

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 328. Decorated with jewels and

pearls, that golden airplane glistened like a thousand-rayed sun.

329. Millions and millions of bells chimed. Hosts and hosts of

karatalas sounded. 330. Hearing the sounds of the conchshells and the

calls of "Jaya1" and "Hari!", the gandharvas an kinnaras sang the

glories of Shri Shri Radha-Krishna. 331. The airplane was decorated with

hosts of flags. It glistened like the circle of the sun. 332. In the

middle of the airplane the handsome, splendid, charming newly-

liberated soul sat on a jewel throne. 333. He was pleasant coolness

defeated ten million moons. He chanted, "Radha'-Krishna! Gauranga!"

xxx: Haaaaaaaa i am dead!

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 334. A host of siddhas fanned him

with camara whisks. In this way he traveled on the path to Goloka.

335. Brahma, Siva, Sanaka, and a host of others stood before him with

folded hands. Surrounding him on the airplane, they all sang the

glories of Lord Gauranga. 336. They sang: "Glory, glory to Saci's

son, who is an ocean of mercy! O Lord, why are You not merciful to us

in this way? 337. "You delivered a dog, gave him a spiritual body,

and took him to Goloka. Why will You not do the same for us?

338. "Glory, glory to Lord Gaura-Hari, the shelter of the

shelterless! Glory, glory to Him, the best of all avataras!

will we attain the mercy of Your feet? 341. "By touching him, You

delivered a dog. Even when You were Lord Krishna You were not kind in

this way. 342. "When will we become fortunate? You gave perfection to

a dog. We pray that we may become fortunate like him.

343. "Obeisances, obeisances to You, O Lord Gaura Raya, whom only the

pure and faultless may see! Obeisances, obeisances to Your two
