Shri Chaitanya Charitamrita Adi 7.11:

krishna-madhuryera eka adbhuta svabhava

apana asvadite krishna kare bhakta-bhava

 Translation by Shrila Prabhupada: “The transcendental mellow of conjugal love of Krishna is so wonderful that Krishna Himself accepts the form of a devotee to relish and taste it fully.” « Less: ""]More »[URL=""


Although Krishna: "http:///"]Krishna is the reservoir of all pleasure, He has a special intention to taste Himself by accepting the form of a devotee. It is to be concluded that although Lord Chaitanya is present in the form of a devotee, He is Krishna Himself. Therefore Vaishnavas sing, shri-Krishna-chaitanya radha-Krishna nahe anya: “Radha and Krishna combined together are Shri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.” And as Shri Svarupa Damodara Gosvami has said, chaitanyakhyam prakatam adhuna tad-dvayam caikyam aptam: Radha and [URL="http:///" assumed oneness in the form of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.

 I am hesitant to post my query on the internet forum because of the personal nature and special intimacy of Radha and Krishna: "http:///". I wish not to make offense.

And also that my realisations may not be correct tattva.

 I feel I have realised to some degree the deep beauty of the name of ‘Gauranga: "http:///"]Gauranga’. Of the deep intimate union of Radha and Krishna. In a way so consummate. A love so deep that One wishes to know the other fully and deeply. A deep reciprocation of love divine. This name of ‘[URL="http:///"’ is not some simple access or stepping stone, but is complete consummation. A love so profound I am hesitant to discuss.

 ‘And as Shri Svarupa Damodara Gosvami has said, chaitanyakhyam prakatam adhuna tad-dvayam caikyam aptam: Radha and Krishna: "http:///" assumed oneness in the form of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.’

 How intimate a service is such of these divine servitors such as Shri Svarupa Damodara Goswami and Shri Ramananda Raya. To increase Mahaprabhu’s divine sentiments and prema.

 What does it mean to chant the name of Krishna: "http:///"]Gauranga? What does it mean to serve Mahaprabhu? I fall at these divine servitors Lotus Feet. I realised today…it is surely not about me. Everything must be for [URL="http:///"’s pleasure.

 Dear Gurudeva! You have given the highest nectar so freely! The name of Gauranga: "http:///" is the highest pinnacle, I cannot describe what I glimpsed for a split second today.

 How is it that the name of Gauranga: "http:///" does not consider offences? In such intimate love there is no consideration of offence! But how is it that this name has been given to the most fallen? Even such as I!

 Material possesions are to be relinqished. Krishna: "http:///"]Krishna wants everything. Yesterday a great atheist said I was a waste of space. Materially I am a great fool. No one sees fully and clearly, just outer coverings nothing else. We cannot see clearly. It is most difficult. Please take away this desire for name and fame, for wanting to be noticed. So sinful am I. But dear Gurudeva, I want [URL="http:///" more than anything. Today I realised what is my position. Servant of the servant of the servant. It can be nothing else.
