dandavats at lotus feet of all devotees
I am extremely sorry for not posting for such a long time, please forgive my offenses.
As we went inside the Yogapitha, we had the most auspicious darshan of Shri Shri Vishvambhara and Shrimati Vishnupriya devi. Shrimati Vishnupriya devi is the eternal consort
and potency of Lord Gauranga.
This temple and dities were first established by Shrila Sachidananda Bhaktivinoda Thakura, and later expanded and made bigger by Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura Prabhupada.
In the photo we see is Panchattava and Lord Jagannatha(Lord Krishna).
The Yogapitha is the seat of the Panchatattva and the most holy place of appearance of Lord Chaitanya.
The Panchattava is Lord Gauranga in 5 forms, as Lord Nityananda(first expansion) , Lord Advaita(Lords incarnation), Shrila Gadhadhara Pandita(potency of Lord) and Shrila Shrivas Pandit( Lords incarnation as pure devotee).
Then we had the most auspicious and most rare darshan of the place where Lord Gauranga appeared as the son of Shri Jagannatha Mishra and Shrimati Sachimata.
The tree we see in the photo is the tree under which Lord Chaitanya appeared. Lord Chaitanya appeared in 1486 AD on Gaura Paournima, at the time of lunar eclispse and at the same time, people went to the ganges to chant "Hari Hari". Lord Chaitanyas appearance can be read from Shri Chaitanya Bhagvata from Nitaai Veda at www.nitai.info (located at important and compiled scriptures tab)
This is the home where Lord Chaitanya appeared. Inside Lords home are dities of Shri Jagannatha Mishra, Sachimata and baby Nimai on lap of Sachimata.
My spiritual master told us, that devotees take the most holy dust of this place to their homes. The Vaishnavas feel great good fortune to even walk here.
We then payed prostrate obeisances and then circumambulated the temple. Also there is a temple of Lord Shiva who protects this place from unqualified people. We prayed to him that he bestows his mercy on us so that someday we can see the spiritual world.
We then went to see Gaura Kunda, where Lord Gauranga used to take bath, where Sachimata used to wash His clothes, etc. The water of this place is most holy and purifying, so we took the holy water on our heads.
To our greatest good fortune the kind devotees invited us to have prasadam the next day.
Gurudeva told us that by visiting the birth place of Lord Chaitanya, we do not have to take birth again in this material world.
please forgive me for any mistakes and offenses.
