intense affection between Lord Ramchandra and Lord Lakshman.

their glances destroy the inauspiciousness of the ten directions, and
their raised arms push away the inauspiciousness of the demigods'

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: Is my singing giving you goose

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: It is most beautiful pastimes when
Lord Gauranga delivered a puppy in HIs childhood
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: does anyone know that?
xxxx: no maharaji
xxx: i read but forgot
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 282. With many playful boys He
played many games. With many boys He enjoyed childhood pastimes,
blissful and wonderful pastimes. 283. Playing and playing, He
suddenly met two or four puppies. Very happy, Lord Gaura-Hari chose
one of them. 284. Then one of His companions said: "Listen
Visvambhara. You chose the best puppy and left the ugly ones for us.
You go home. We won't play with You." 285. Then Lord Visvambhara
said: "This puppy belongs to all of us. Come to My house and We'll
all play with him." 286. Speaking these words, and taking the puppy
with Him, Lord Gaura went to His house. Arriving home, He put a rope
around the puppy's neck and tied him to the veranda.
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: This is not the one from Cc, that is
in Puri, this is in Navadvipa.
swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 287. All this time Lord
Visvambhara's mother was busy with household chores. Then,
accompanied by the village ladies, she went to bathe in the Ganga.
288. Now the house now empty. Accompnaied by the boys, Lord
Visvambhara played many games with the puppy. They all became covered
with dust. 289. As they played and played, a quarrel was born among
the boys. One boy praised Lord Gaura-Hari, and another boy rebuked
Him. 290. Lord Gaura said: "Every day you come, and every day you
pick a fight. Why do you act like that?" The other boy said: "I know
what You're like. You stole the puppy." 291. Angry at heart, that boy
ran off. Meeting Mother Saci, with a voice choked with anger he
called out: 292. "Listen! Listen! Your Visvambhara has a pet puppy.
One moment He hug
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 292. "Listen! Listen! Your
Visvambhara has a pet puppy. One moment He hugs the puppy. The next
moment He holds the puppy's neck. Go and see for yourself." 293.
Hearing the boy's words, Saci hurried home. She saw the puppy in Lord
Visvambhara's lap, 294. Putting her hand to her head, Mother Saci
said: "Why do You play like this? I do not know. There are so many
ways You could play. Still You play with a puppy. You are very
mischievous. 295. "Your father is very religious. You are his son.
What will the people say? What happiness do You think You will find
by playing with a puppy? 296. "You are a brahmana's son, but You do
not even slightly act like one. What good words will I speak to
defend You?
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: Ah, the words I will hear will be
like an iron spear pushed into my heart. 297. "What happiness do You
find by covering Your beautiful form with dust? I bow my head to
speak such words. I feel that flames burn in my mouth. 298. "How many
moons does Your face defeat? Your limbs are like lightning. You do
not wear nice garments. Instead You cover Your limbs with dust and
stay among low-class boys." 299. Angrily pressing her teeth to her
lip, Saci-devi rebuked all the boys. To Lord Gaura she said: "Go to
Your room and take Your puppy with You. You can renounce Your mother
and father." 300. After speaking these words, she looked at her son's
face. She was overcome with bliss. Then she said: "Come. Dear one,
come and sit in my lap. Be quiet. I will kiss Your face.
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: I am so sorry for posting so fast
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 301. "Leave Your dog, O dear one,
and bathe in ths Ganga's waters. Sio hours of the day have already
passed. And You are not hungry? How much trouble do You give to me?
302. "Tie up your puppy, and go take Your bath. Later You can play
with Your puppy. Now You should eat some lunch." 303. As a golden
lotus wilts in the hot sunshine, so Lord Gaura's face wilted. On the
tip of His nose a drop of perspiration awakened. Gazing at her son,
Saci felt her life breath split apart. 304. Hearing Mother Saci's
words, Lord Visvambhara smiled and said: "I will go to bathe." 305.
Speaking these words, the Lord hugged His mother's neck and prepared
for His bath. Wiping the dust from His face, Mother Saci anointed the
Lord's limbs with scented oil.
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 306. For His bath Lord Visvambhara
went to the Ganga's bank. He happily palyed with His friends in the
Ganga's waters. 307. Lord Visvambhara's form was wonderful and
immovable like Mount Sumeru. As a wild elephant plays in the water
with its companions, so Lord Visvambhara played in the water with His
friends. 308. Meanwhile Saci-devi set the puppy free. She said: "I do
not know where the puppy went. Perhaps the puppy ran to his own
mother." 309. One of the boys was there at that time. He ran to the
Ganga's bank and said: "Visvambhara, Your mother set the puppy free."
310. Hearing the boy's words, the Lord ran home. He saw that the
puppy was gone.

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 311. He looked in the four
directions. He did not see the puppy. His heart burned with flames of
anger. He wept. He rebuked His mother. He was overcome with grief for
His puppy. 312. He said: "Listen, O foolish mother. Why did you do
that? You gave Me great suffering. That puppy was very beautiful. Why
did you do that?" 313. Saci said: "I did not know what happened to
Your puppy. Perhaps some boys came and stole him. 314. "Why must You
cry for a puppy? Tomorrow I will search in forest after forest. I
will find Your puppy and bring him back. 315. "Don't lament. Stop
Your lament. I will bring back Your puppy. I promise. Don't weep.
Please don't weep anymore." 316. After speaking these words, she
wiped the tears from her son's face and hugged Him.
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: azing at His face, she became filled
with bliss. She kissed Him millions and millions of times. 317. She
wiped His limbs, pretending to make Him a little more clean, and then
she bathed Him with the Ganga's waters. Then she fed Him many
delicious sandesa, modaka, ksira, and kadalaka candies. 318. She tied
His hair in a topknot and she decorated His eyes with splendid black
kajjala. She made Him completely splendid. 319. Around His waist she
tied a red sash that hung to His toes. On His chest she rested a
string of pearls. On His forehead she placed sandal tilaka. 320. She
decorated Him with bracelets and armlets of priceless jewels. On His
feet she placed anklets. Grasping ksira and ladu candies in His
hands, He went to play with the boys.
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 321. His graceful walking defeated
the graceful wild elephants. His voice was like thick honey.
Surrounded by the boys, Lord Gaura, the king of the brahmanas, was
like a moon surrounded by stars. 322. Gazing at the Lord as He
played, the demigods all smiled. Seeing that Lord Gaura touched even
cats and dogs, Locana dasa is filled with wonder.
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 322. Gazing at the Lord as He
played, the demigods all smiled. Seeing that Lord Gaura touched even
cats and dogs, Locana dasa is filled with wonder.
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: Lord Gauranga is the only
incarnation who personally touched cats and dogs.
xxx: Bows

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: Now can anyone imagine what happened
to that puppy?
xxxx: he was liberated?
xxx: went to Vaikunta
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: I will tell you
xxx: where is the poor puppy?
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 323. By Lord Gauranga's touch a dog
became fortunate. Abandoning his dog's nature, he became filled with
transcendental knowledge. 324. Calling out, "Radha'-Krishna! Govinda!",
the dog danced. Everyone in Nadiya ran to see him. 325. Everyone
watched as the dog manifested signs of ecstasy. The hairs of his body
stood erect. His eyes were filled with tears. 326. That soul suddenly
renounced his dog's body and went to Lord Krishna's abode of Goloka.
327. A divine airplane suddenly arrived and took that soul on the
path in the sky.

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 328. Decorated with jewels and
pearls, that golden airplane glistened like a thousand-rayed sun.
329. Millions and millions of bells chimed. Hosts and hosts of
karatalas sounded. 330. Hearing the sounds of the conchshells and the
calls of "Jaya1" and "Hari!", the gandharvas an kinnaras sang the
glories of Shri Shri Radha-Krishna. 331. The airplane was decorated with
hosts of flags. It glistened like the circle of the sun. 332. In the
middle of the airplane the handsome, splendid, charming newly-
liberated soul sat on a jewel throne. 333. He was pleasant coolness
defeated ten million moons. He chanted, "Radha'-Krishna! Gauranga!"
xxx: Haaaaaaaa i am dead!
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: O Gauranga, I can't believe this
xxx: I never never had imagined this,
Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: Just because Gauranga touched it

Swami Gaurangapada (Spiritual M: 334. A host of siddhas fanned him
with camara whisks. In this way he traveled on the path to Goloka.
335. Brahma, Siva, Sanaka, and a host of others stood before him with
folded hands. Surrounding him on the airplane, they all sang the
glories of Lord Gauranga. 336. They sang: "Glory, glory to Saci's
son, who is an ocean of mercy! O Lord, why are You not merciful to us
in this way? 337. "You delivered a dog, gave him a spiritual body,
and took him to Goloka. Why will You not do the same for us?
338. "Glory, glory to Lord Gaura-Hari, the shelter of the
shelterless! Glory, glory to Him, the best of all avataras!

will we attain the mercy of Your feet? 341. "By touching him, You
delivered a dog. Even when You were Lord Krishna You were not kind in
this way. 342. "When will we become fortunate? You gave perfection to
a dog. We pray that we may become fortunate like him.
343. "Obeisances, obeisances to You, O Lord Gaura Raya, whom only the
pure and faultless may see! Obeisances, obeisances to Your two
graceful feet! 344. "We demigods are all the Lord's followers and
