humble dandavats at the dust of lotus feet of Gurudeva

obiesances at the lotus feet of all devotees


Concluding words of Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura Prabhupada on Chaitanya Bhagvata


The pastimes of the Pancha-Tattva are most enchanting.Shri Gaurasundara is the Supreme Personality of Godhead,Lord Nityananda is His personal manifestation,Advaita is His separate expansion,Gadadhara is His energy and Shrinivasa is His devotee.


They are the Supreme deliverers of the fallen souls,they are most dear to Shri Gaurakishora,and They are the ultimate goal of the fallen souls.Shrivasa's brother had a daughter named Narayani,who was the author's mother.Her mind was fixed at the lotus feet of Vishvambhara


Her son was Vrindavana dasa, who was unlimitedly merciful, who compiled Shri Chaitanya Bhagvata,who was the last servant of Nityananda,and who revealed that service to devotees of Hari is the essence of all.


He perfectly described the incomparable glories of Vaishnavas.The minds of those who are averse to the Vaishnavas are always disturbed by the material  miseries.Such persons are worthless as ash.


Vrindavana dasa considered that people averse to Nitai were suitable candidates for compassion,so He kicked them in the head.There is no one in the three worlds as greatly compassionate and sober as him,for he delivers such persons from material existance.


Foolish peope intoxicated by false ego cannot underdstand him so they attempt to establish him as an angry person.The hypocrites hide their own low-class mentality and can never understand the punishment awarded by a Vasihnava, which is simply an exhibition of compassion.


In  the course of writing this commentary,Shri  Gaudiya-bhasya with the desire to serve the devotees, I have rejected all forms of duplicity.While writing this commentary,the Lord always maintained me and gave me the necessary strength of heart.


Shri Bhaktivinoda would always say that Shri Chaitanya-bhagvata describes the process of pure devotional service .By constantly studying this book,one's  sinful mentality is destroyed and one will achieve the joy of ecstatic love of Krishna.


The desire to satisfy one's senses has no place in devotional service .There is no question of sense gratification in the service of Vaishnavas .As a result of serving the devotees,one attains prema,the most valuable asset , and all material diseases are vanquised.


The desire to merge in the existance of the Lord is as crooked as playing dice, for it deprives one of all auspiciousness.The gross and subtle bodies of a person expert in the worship of the bhagvatas are destroyed by the strength of his devotional service.


The writer of this commentary is Shri Varshabhanavai dayitya dasa who desires to attain Shri Varshabhanavi  and who is the servant of Her beloved Lord. Although he is averse to devotional service and his mind is attached to material enjoyment,he begs for the shelter of the Lord's lotus feet.


Shri Chaitanya Matha is situated within Shri Gauda-Mandala in Mayapura-Navadvipa, the top-most tirtha and site of Gaura-s appearance.No cheaters are residing therin;only Gaura's devotes live there.


I always reside in the association of Shrila Bhaktivinoda's servents .Accepting thier order on my head,I completd this commentary on the hill of Utkamand at the end of the month of Jyaishtha in the Gaurabda year 446(A.D 1932)


While writing this commentary, the devotees took care of me and decieved me with awe and respect .They bound me with ropes of affection by always providing facilities for meand encouraging me in my devotional service.


May my mind always remain fixed at the lotus feet of Lord Gauranga's devotees like Shri Bhaktivinoda. May my mind always remain fixed in eternal service as it is while writing this commentary as the servant of the tridandi-sannyasis.
