dandavats at the lotus feet of Gurudeva and all devotees

All Glories to Shrila Prabhupada

I read these verses from Shri Chaitanya Bhagvata,and found them very very inspiring. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

CB Adi-khanda 3.16

TEXT 16

vipra bale,-“e sisu saksat narayana

inha haite sarva-dharma haibe sthapana

TRANSLATION

He said, “This child is nondifferent from Narayana. He will reestablish religious principles.

COMMENTARY

The brahmana said, “This boy is Narayana Himself, Lord of all lords. He alone will properly reconcile the conflicting principles of various religious preachers.”

 

CB Adi-khanda 3.17

TEXT 17

inha haite haibeka apurva prachara

ei sisu karibe sarva-jagat uddhara

TRANSLATION

“He will preach wonderfully and thus deliver the entire world.

COMMENTARY

“This child will distribute throughout the world the splendor of devotional service, which has never before been preached. He will deliver everyone from their narrow-minded desires for material enjoyment, fruitive activities, and speculative knowledge and fix them in their eternal occupation-devotional service to the Supreme Lord.”

 

CB Adi-khanda 3.18

TEXT 18

brahma, siva,suka yaha vanccha anukshana

inha haite taha paibeka sarva-jana

TRANSLATION

“People will receive from Him love of God that is desired by even Brahma, Siva, and Sukadeva.

COMMENTARY

In the Chaitanya-candramrata (18 and 55) it is stated: “The dear devotees of Lord Gaura happily enjoy pastimes on the splendid path of pure devotional service, which great sages like Vyasadeva could not thoroughly understand, which material intelligence has no power to enter, which Sukadeva Gosvami could not reveal, and which merciful Lord Krishna never revealed to His devotees. O Lord Chaitanyacandra, who enlightens the ignorant, if You grace me with Your merciful glance, then even though I am a wretch I will not be far away from the wonderful path of pure devotion, which is rarely attained by Siva, Sukadeva, Uddhava, Narada, and other great souls.”

 

This child will indiscriminately give everyone that which great personalities like Lord Brahma, Lord Siva, and Sukadeva Gosvami always desire to obtain.

 

CB Adi-khanda 3.19

TEXT 19

sarva-bhuta-dayalu, nirveda darasane

sarva-jagatera prita haiba ihane

TRANSLATION

“Just by seeing Him, the people of this world will develop love for Him, compassion for other living entities, and detachment from material enjoyment.

COMMENTARY

By seeing Shriman Mahaprabhu, the people of this world will develop love for Gaura-Krishna and become kind to all living entities and equal in happiness and distress.

CB Adi-khanda 3.20

TEXT 20

anyera ki daya, vishnu-drohi ye yavana

taharao e sisura bhajibe charana

TRANSLATION

“What to speak of others, even Yavanas who are averse to Vishnu will worship the lotus feet of this child.

COMMENTARY

In the Chaitanya-candramata (2) it is stated: “Those who are untouched by any piety, who are completely absorbed in irreligion, and who have never received the merciful glance of the devotees or been to any holy place sanctified by them are still ecstatically dancing, loudly singing, and even rolling about on the ground because they are intoxicated by tasting the nectar of the transcendental mellows of pure love of God, given by Lord Chaitanya. Let me therefore glorify that Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.”

 

The Yavanas are naturally averse to Lord Vishnu. But even such Yavanas will give up such propensities to follow the footsteps of Shri Gauranga.

 

CB Adi-khanda 3.21

TEXT 21

ananta brahmane kirti gaiba ihana

a-vipra e sisure karibe prema

TRANSLATION

“His glories will be sung in innumerable universes, and everyone, including brahmanas, will offer respects to this child.

COMMENTARY

The word ihana means “His.” Brahmanas are the spiritual masters of all other vaishyas-kshatriyas, vaisyas, sudras, and antyajas, or mlecchas. Such brahmanas will also offer obeisances to this child, and the entire universe will become maddened by the fragrance of His fame.

 

CB Adi-khanda 3.22

TEXT 22

bhagavata-dharma-maya ihana sarira

deva-dvija-guru-pita-mata-bhakta dhira

TRANSLATION

“He is the personification of religious principles and the benefactor of the demigods, the brahmanas, the spiritual masters, His father and mother, and the sober devotees.

COMMENTARY

In the Shrimad Bhagavatam (7.11.7) it is stated: “The Supreme Being, the Personality of Godhead, is the essence of all Vedic knowledge, the root of all religious principles, and the memory of great authorities. O King Yudhishthira, this principle of religion is to be understood as evidence. On the basis of this religious principle, everything is satisfied, including one’s mind, soul and even one’s body.”

 

The gross body and subtle mental functions are all foreign. The soul’s eternal activities are called bhagavata-dharma. The transcendental body of this child is direct service of the Supreme Lord. In other words, He is the personification of devotional service to Lord Krishna. Therefore godly qualities like subordination to the demigods, brahmanas, spiritual masters, father, and mother, who are all devotees of Vishnu, are all present in Him.

 

CB Adi-khanda 3.23

TEXT 23

vishnu yena avatari’ laoyayena dharma

sei-mata e sisu karibe sarva-karma

TRANSLATION

“Just as Lord Vishnu incarnates and induces people to follow religious principles, this child will perform similar activities.

COMMENTARY

Whenever there is danger in this material world, the demigods pray to the Supreme Lord. Lord Vishnu then incarnates and protects the demigods and human beings from the danger. This child will also be as powerful as Lord Vishnu while He fulfills His mission.

 

CB Adi-khanda 3.24

TEXT 24

lagne yata kahe subha lakshana ihana

kara sakti ache taha karite vyakhyana?

TRANSLATION

“Who has the power to explain the auspicious symptoms that are found in the houses of this child’s horoscope?

 

CB Adi-khanda 3.25

TEXT 25

dhanya tumi, misra-purandara bhagyavan

yanra e nandana, tanre rahuka prema

TRANSLATION

“O Jagannatha Misra, you are indeed glorious and fortunate, because this child is your son. I offer my obeisances unto you.

COMMENTARY

Seeing Jagannatha Misra’s son and hearing His glories, everyone considered Jagannatha Mishra most fortunate. They congratulated him and offered him their obeisances.

 

CB Adi-khanda 3.26

TEXT 26

hena koshthe gaeilana ami bhagyavan

‘shri-visvambhara’-nama haibe ihana

TRANSLATION

“I am also fortunate to have had the privilege of calculating His horoscope. This child’s name will be Shri Visvambhara.

COMMENTARY

The brahmana decided, “I have become fortunate simply by calculating the horoscope of the Lord. The name of this child will be Visvambhara.”

 

CB Adi-khanda 3.27

TEXT 27

ihane balibe loka ‘navadvipa-candra’

e balake janiha kevala parananda

TRANSLATION

“Yet people will call Him Navadvipa Candra. Know for certain that this child is the personification of spiritual ecstasy.”

COMMENTARY

People will call this child Navadvipa Candra, and they will know Him as the embodiment of unalloyed ecstasy.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
