kevaa kaara caranera dhuli laya shire ..46..


So some devotees they did not know keba gaya keba pade gaye, means bodies. So some devotees did not know whose bodies they fell upon. But they started falling upon each others bodies like chain reaction. Some devotees they had no consciousness fell upon each other and some devotees caught others. They did not know who they caught, they were holding each other and were mesmerisied by love genearated by drinking the water of lotus feet of Lord Nityananda lotus feet and some devotees started grabing dust of other devotee’s lotus feet and that way there was a big transcendental festival.

This is the difference between Navadvipa and Vaikuntha, in Vaikuntha the devotees cannot dance with the Lord they are always servants of Lord they always see with awe and reverence but in Navadvipa and Puri there is no aishvarya the devotees participate in kirtana along with the Lord without any awe and reverence and sometimes they even fall on the body of Lord bashing each other in transcendental love and dancing.So devotees had no fear of disrespecting the Lord in any way because Lord was always pleased with their devoton.So both the Prabhus and devotees started dancing together.


nityaananda-caitanye kariyaa kolaakuli .

aanande naacena dui Prabhu kutuhali ..49..

esaba lilaara kabhu naahi pariccheda .

‘aavirbhaava’, ‘tirobhaava’ maatra kahe veda ..52..


So these divine pastimes of Nityananda Gauranga are never ending there should be faith in heart of devotees that these are eternal pastimes goin on spiritual world in Vedas they are described as avirbhav tirobhav means they describe that these pastimes manifest in front of our eyes and Lord goes back again to the transcendental abode.So they disappear in front of our eyes but that dosent mean that the pastimes ends.Like the sun rises in the morning and sets in the night,that dosent mean the sun has died in night the sun is finished,no sun has risen in another place. Similarly nitya leela of Nityananda Gauranga is continuing in the material world they come in one universe in kali yuga then they go to another universe. Their pastimes are nitya going on in material creation as well as in spiritual creation they are always eternal so both places they are eternal, that is nitya aprakat lila and this is nitya prakat lila. Nitya leela going on is spiritual world of Puri,Vrindavana,Navadvipa is nitya aprakata lila.and this is nitya prakat lila manifested pastimes, even the very moment we are speaking the pastimes are going on.
