Title: Cyclone passes over
User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-07-04 11:12:42
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Two days back it rained heavily in Puri Dhaam for two days and then for the last two days we had a cyclone here with winds almost reaching speeds of 200 km/hour. If one would stand on the beach, one would be blown over. Some trees and poles fell down including the neem tree close to my ashram which was the source of neem leaves for me. The grains of the beach sand were flying so fast and they would strike the faces of everyone who would go near to them on the beach and it would pain even more than pin pricks. We were out of electricity for around the past two days and it has now returned back to normal with bright sunshine. I was remembering how after another 150 trillion years at the time of universal devastation, it will rain for 36,000 years.
I remembered the storm with Lord Advaita Acharya orchestrated in Puri Dhaam by ordering Indra so that Lord Gauranga would come alone to eat in his home instead of coming with all other devotees so that He could feed Him all the preparations to His heart's satisfaction. Unfortunately the exact location of Lord Advaita Acharya's home in Puri is lost though it may have been the Shadbhuja Gauranga Math with Lord Advaita Acharya established close to Lord Jagannatha Temple.

Dear Gaurangapada Swamiji,
Jai Shri Gauranga, Jai Shri Nityananda and Hare Krishna. Please accept my humble Pranam at your lotus feet. All glories to the Vaishnavas.
I am not able to understand that If Lord Advaita Achayas wanted Shri Gauranga Mahaprabhu alone for Prasad. How is that Lord of Universes forget the direction to a very specific place, such as the house of Advaitya Acharyas. My intelligence is very limited and forgive for not comprehand such simple thing like this. I need more of your association to go on further for the faith buiding. Please respond to this inquiry.
Param Rushi Dasa.

Lord Advaita wanted Him alone because in the presence of His associates and especially devotees like Shrila Paramananda Puri and others who were the godbrothers of His Guru Shrila Ishvara Puri, the Lord of the Universes Lord Gauranga, Who normally eats 56 kinds of foodstuffs in Puri Dhaam and Vaikuntha, would hesitate to eat properly the bhoga and preparations offered to Him as He was playing the role of a sannyasi. Thus Lord Advaita was not able to feed Him properly with full satisfaction when He came with His other associates. So Lord Advaita, who is Lord Maha Vishnu Himself, the Master of billions of Indras, ordered the Indra of this universe to create a storm so that other devotees could not leave their homes and only Lord Gauranga would come for that day.
How is that Lord of Universes forget the direction to a very specific place, such as the house of Advaitya Acharyas.
Sorry if I was not clear but I meant that the location of this home of Lord Advaita Acharya where the Lord ate is not clearly known today as it has disappeared. Lord Gauranga did not forget the direction at His time. I was talking about the present situation.
