In this way everyone in the circle of devotees offered prayers, and everyone received a boon.
Shrivasa Pandita was very kind and generous. That is why these pastimes were manifest in his home.
The Lord manifested the forms of His different incarnations. Thus each devotee saw the form of the incarnation he yearned to see.
In this way I have described how Lord Gauranga happily revealed His great, great powers and opulences.
Day after day the Lord Gauranga's servants and their wives saw the Lord's revelation of His powers and glories.
Anyone who becomes a sincere servant of the Lord can see all these pastimes.
How many ascetics, sannyasis, philosophers, and yogis stayed in Navadvipa!
They spent all their time studying Bhagavad-gita and Shrimad-Bhagavatam. Some gave lectures. But none of them knew what was the true religion.
Some never accepted any gift from anyone. Some from their very childhood made their bodies wither and dry up with useless austerities.
Falsely proud, none of them could see that the happiness of Vaikuntha had now come to this world.
Shrivasa's servants and maidservants saw, but the scholars of the scriptures did not understand what had happened.
The sannyasis who shaved their heads could not see the great mercy attained by Murari Gupta's servants.
Wealth, noble family, and material learning will not help one attain Lord Gauranga. Lord Gauranga becomes conquered only by devotional service.
A person who yearns to hear others praise him does not attain Lord Gauranga. The four Vedas sing, "The Supreme Lord is completely conquered by devotional service."
Thus the great bhattacaryas did not know the Supreme Lord had revealed His powers and glories in the town of Navadvipa.
Why were the bhattacaryus cheated of the ability to see Lord Gauranga's powers and opulences? They were impious. They were like a lake that has no water.
There is not a time when the Lord's pastimes come to an end. The Vedas declare, "Sometimes the Lord's pastimes are visible to the people of this world, and other times there are not visible."
At this very moment Lord Gauranga is enjoying pastimes. Whoever is properly qualified can see them even now.
Lord Gauranga enjoys pastimes eternally. Some persons see them. Others have no power to see them.
Lord Gauranga revealed to each devotee the form of the specifi incarnation they had worshiped with mantras and meditation.
He revealed these forms and He also spoke words of instruction. O my brothers, please hear the words He spoke.
He said, "Birth after birth you have attained My association. Your servants will also see My pastimes."
The Lord took the garland from His neck and gave it to everyone. He also gave them the betelnuts He had chewed.
The devotees happily chewed on the betelnuts that had been enjoyed by Lord Gauranga, who is more glorious than millions of autumn moons.
Saintly Narayani attained the remnants of Lord Gauranga's meal.
She was Shrivasa's niece, an little girl unaware of many things. Lord Gauranga gave to her the remnants of His meal.
She happily ate them. All the Vaishnavas blessed her.
She was very fortunate to serve the Lord in this way. Beginning with the time when she was a little girl, she was fortunate for her whole life.
When she finished eating, Lord Gauranga ordered her, "Narayani, joyfully weep for Lord Krishna. I want to see and hear that."
By the power of Lord Gauranga's order, that little girl called out, "Krishna!" and wept.
Even today in the circle of Vaishnavas one may hear the words, "Narayani ate the remnants of Lord Gauranga's meal."
When Lord Gauranga commanded, everyone quickly came.
Please know for certain that anyone who has no faith in Lord Gauranga's order will quickly fall down.
Lord Gauranga is very dear to Lord Advaita. For this reason Lord Advaita is very glorious.
Lord Nityananda is very dear to Lord Gauranga. For this reason the four Vedas sing Lord Nityananda's glories.
If one does not think, "I am a devotee of Lord Gauranga", then, even though he may be served by many others, he is no better than a piece of straw.
Lord Nityananda would say, "I am a servant of Lord Gauranga". At no time of the day or night did He ever manifest Himself as the master.
By His mercy one pleases Lord Gauranga. One who worships Lord Nityananda will never know calamity.
"Lord Gauranga is my master." This I always think in my heart.
O Lord Gauranga, please give me shelter at the feet of Lord Nityananda, who is Ananta Sesha, the maintainer of the worlds.
Out of love for Lord Balarama I sing the glories of Lord Gauranga. Lord Balarama brings auspiciousness to the whole world.
Lord Nityananda never thinks that He is not the servant of Lord Gauranga. Lord Nityananda gives the gift of service to Lord Gauranga.
By Lord Nityananda's mercy one can know the truth of Lord Gauranga. By Lord Nityananda's mercy one can know the truth of devotional service.
Lord Nityananda is dear to all the Vaishnavas.All the Vaishnavas are devoted to Lord Nityananda.
If anyone offends Lord Nityananda, then Lord Gauranga Himself says, "This person must go."
The demigods, yogis, and Vaishnavas, and even Lord Siva himself cannot find the end of Lord Nityananda's glories.
A person who never blasphemes anyone, and who chants, "Krishna! Krishna!", easily conquers Lord Gauranga, who is never conquered by anyone.
All the scriptures declare, "A person who blasphemes others will not attain the Lord." Shrimad-Bhagavatam teaches that one should respect everyone.
The narrations of this Madhya-khanda are like nectar. But the materialists and offenders think they are like bitter nimba juice.
A person who has jaundice thinks sugar tastes like bitter nimba. Because of his misfortune he cannot taste the sweetness of sugar.
In the same way, because of their past impious deeds the materialists and offenders do not feel happiness when they hear of Lord Gauranga's blissful glories.
Please know that if even a sannyasi does not offer respect to Lord Gauranga, then that demon sannyasi will be blind birth after birth.
But if even a lowly creature like a bird speaks Loed Gauranga's name, then that bird will in truth go to Lord Gauranga's spiritual abode.
All glory to You, O Lord Gauranga, O life of Lord Nityananda! O Lord Gauranga, please make Lord Nityananda the great treasure of my life.
O Lord Gauranga, I offer my respectful obeisances to Your personal associates, with whom You enjoyed so many pastimes.
The two moons Shri Krishna Gauranga and Shri Nityananda are my life and soul. I, Vrindavana dasa, sing the glories of Their feet.
