Question by Amiya Gauranga dasi

 

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Shrila Gurudeva! I just wanted to ask a question regarding this passage that I was reading in Vanibase:

9) janaki-lakshmana dekhe vamete dakshine, caudike karaye stuti vanarendra gane ..9..

He saw Janaki devi or Sita devi, and Laksmana on His left, and all around the brave monkey leaders were offering prayers. ę Less: "http://www.nitai.in/#"]More Ľ[URL="http://www.nitai.in/#"

Commentary by Swami: "http:///" Gaurangapada: Murari Gupta saw Sita Devi and Lakshmana on the Lords left and the right. Sita was on the left Lakshmana was on the right, just like Nitai is on the left and Gadadhara is on the right.

So my question is: does this mean that it is Gadadhara who was previously Sita devi in Lord Rama: "http:///"ís advent? As I thought it was Vishnupriya devi who was supposed to be the incarnation of Sita devi?

Thanking you in advance, Amiya Gauranga: "http:///" dasi.

Answer by Swami: "http:///" Gaurangapada:

Nityananda: "http:///"]Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Guru Parampara! Pranams and Blessings! I just said that Shrimati Sita on the left and Lord Lakshmana on the right of Lord Raam appeared like Shri Gadadhara on the left and Lord Nityananda on the right of Lord Gauranga. I did not mean that Shri Gadadhara is an incarnation of Shrimati Sita. I just remembered my Lords Gadadhara and [URL="http:///" while describing that pastime. It had no connection with the eternal identities of the Personalities. You are right. Shrimati Vishnupriya devi is also on the left on Lord and She is the incarnation of Shrimati Sitadevi. Shri Gadadhara Pandita is Shrimati Radha Herself. Thankyou.
