Gaurîdas Paòàit (four Gaura-Nitâi Deities, Gaura Purnima celebration)

Across the Ganges from Santipur, in a small town called Ambika Kalna, which is within the present district of Barddhama, is where Gaurî dâsa Paòàita's temple is located. His worshippable Deities Ärî Ärî Gaura-Nityânanda are still residing in all their splendor there. There is a railway station at Ambika Kalna on the Howrah-Navadvipa line. From there one can proceed by rickshaw to Mahâprabhu Mandira. In the temple is an old copy of the Bhagavad-gita on palm leaves which is supposed to have been written by the hand of Mahâprabhu Himself. There is also an oar from a boat which has an interesting story behind it.

One day, the two Lords Caitanya and Nityânanda came to Kalna from Santipur by boat, paddling it themselves. Lord Caitanya kept the oar in His hand, and when He entered Gaurî dâsa's house He gave it to him, saying, "With this you should cross over the ocean of material existence, taking all the living entities with you."

Gaurî dâsa Paòàita's older brother, Surya dâsa Sarakkali, had two daughters, Ärî Vasudha and Jahnava Devi. He gave them in marriage to Nityânanda Prabhu.

Near the conclusion of His Navadvipa pastimes, when Mahâprabhu desired to accept sannyasa, He came to Kalna to bid farewell to Gaurî dâsa. At that time Gaurî dâsa became extremely afflicted by separation. Hereafter is a nice song which describes what occured at that time.

"In the Thakur Paòàit's house, Lord Gaurâôga was dancing ecstatically, revolving around and around, while Lord Nityânanda chanted 'Hari! Hari!' Gaurî dâsa, however, was crying very piteously and incessantly. He fell at the Lord's feet and begged Him, 'Please don't ever go away from here! Just honor this one request: stay here in Ambikanagar - this is my last submission at your lotus feet. If You go away, surely I'll die. Don't try to trick me like You did the gopis, giving some high philosophy about Your 'Bhava-murti' (or anything like that). I must keep You here in such a way that I can see You. You two brothers just stay here with me, thus everyone will become liberated. Again I am petitioning You, don't leave me 'Gaura Hari'. Then I'll know that You are the deliverers of the fallen."

"Ärî Gaurâôga Mahâprabhu replied, 'Gaurî dâsa! Give up this idea. You can just serve My Deity form, for I am personally present in that form also. You should know this to be a fact. Just accept what I am telling you as the truth."

"Hearing this, Gaurî dâsa simply let out a deep sigh and continued to cry piteously. Again the two brothers tried to console him but his heart refused to be pacified.

"Dina Kèëòa dâsa is praying at the lotus feet of Lord Caitanya, that these two brothers might remain there. Thus the two of them were bound by the love of Gaurî dâsa and therefore the Lord is known as bhakta-vatsala or one who is affectionate to His devotees.

"Seeing that Gaurî dâsa was extremely distraught, Mahâprabhu spoke to him very gently, 'All right, We'll stay with you. Know in all certainty that We two brothers will stay in your house.'

"Consoling him in this way the two Lords came before him in the company of two Deities. Seeing the four of them standing before him, Paòàitji was astonished, and though tears continued to flow from his eyes, now it was not out of sadness. The Lord again spoke to him, 'Whichever two you choose, you can keep in your room. Whichever two you can recognise as Us will stay with you and depend on you to feed Us. Know this to be the truth of truths within your heart.

"Having heard Mahâprabhu speak these words, Gaurî dâsa immediately began to cook. He fed all four of them sumptuously and then offered them nice cloths and garlanded them with garlands of lotus flowers. Then he offered pan and betel nuts for chewing and smeared sandalwood paste on Their bodies. By serving them in various ways, he gradually regained his former composure and at the same time decided which two he would keep in his house. Due to the Paòàita's pure love, two Lords remained with him and asked him to feed them when they were hungry, while the other two went to Nilacala Puri. Gaurî dâsa Paòàita served his two Lords according to Their whims and enjoyed many pastimes with Them.

"Praying at the lotus feet of such a rare devotee as Paòàita Gaurî das, Dina Kèëòa dâsa concludes his song. Becoming subservient to Gaurî dâsa' love, Ärî Ärî Gaura-Nityânanda accepted the arca vigraha form and remained with him to enjoy sporting pastimes."

One day the two Lords smilingly spoke to Paòàitji "Gaurî dâsa! Previously you were our friend, Subal. Don't you remember how we used to play and frolic, enjoying different pastimes on the banks of the Yamuna?" Speaking in this sweet way, suddenly they took the form of Kèëòa and Balarama. Dressed like cowherd boys, They held buffalo horn, cane and flute in Their hands. Their heads were decorated with peacock feathers and around their necks were garlands of forest flowers, and their lotus feet were decorated with ankle bells. Gaurî dâsa also assumed his previous appearance and in this way they enjoyed some fun together. After some time, Gaurî dâsa calmed himself, and the two Lords again sat down on the simhasana.

Every day, Gaurî dâsa used to cook many varieties of vegetables and offer them to Their Lordships. He was always absorbed in their service and never perceived his own bodily discomfort. As the years went by, gradually he attained a ripe old age. Nevertheless he continued to serve his Lordships as before, cooking many various preparations for Them. Seeing that he was having to exert himself so much to do so much cooking, one day Ärî Ärî Gaura-Nityânanda feigned anger and refused to eat. Paòàitji was in turn hurt by this and said, "If You get happiness by not eating, then why do You have me cook in the first place?"

After saying this he became silent.

Lord Gaurâôga smiled and replied softly, "Your cooking is no small accomplishment. You prepare rice and so many varieties of vegetables. You won't listen if We request you not to make so much but We can't bear to see your hard labor. Whatever you can prepare easily that would be best."

Hearing Their statement, Gaurî dâsa replied, "Anyway, whatever I have prepared today, please accept that. From tomorrow I won't feed You with so many preparations. I'll just put some sak on Your plate." Having heard the reply of Gaurî dâsa, the two Lords laughed and began to eat.

Sometimes Gaurî dâsa desired to decorate Their Lordships with ornaments. Coming to know of this, Ärî Gaura-Nityânanda put on various ornaments and exhibited themselves in Their full opulence. When Paòàitji entered the temple, he smiled with wonder. "Where did so many ornaments come from?" He was simply astonished in ecstasy. In this way Ärî Ärî Gaura-Nityânanda began to manifest Their opulences through various sporting pastimes in Gaurî das's house.

Gaurî dâsa's dearmost disciple was Ärî Hèdayânanda. One time, on the occasion of Lord Gaurasundara's birth anniversary, Gaurî dâsa went to visit some of his disciples. At the time of going he left Hèdayânanda in charge of worshiping the Deities, which Hèdayânanda began to do in full love. Gradually the appearance day of Mahâprabhu drew very near. When there were only three days remaining, still Gaurî dâsa hadn't returned home yet. Hèdayânanda deliberated for some time about what should be done and finally, being prompted on his own, sent out invitations to all the devotees and disciples to attend the festival.

Just after that, Gaurî dâsa returned. Hèdayânanda informed his gurudeva that he had written out invitations and had then sent them to the devotees. Within himself, Gaurî dâsa was very pleased by Hèdayânanda's service, but externally he feigned great anger and said, "Even in my presence you show so much independence, sending out invitations hither and thither. Anyway, whatever this upstart has done is done, but he won't be able to remain here."

Hearing this, Hèdayânanda offered his obeisances and went to sit underneath a tree on the banks of the Gaôgâ. Shortly thereafter, a rich man passing by in a boat hailed Hèdayânanda, wishing to make a donation. But instead of accepting the donation himself, Hèdayânanda sent him to his guru. However, Gaurî dâsa sent the man back to Hèdayânanda and told him to accept the donation and with it to hold a festival on the banks of the Gaôgâ.

As per the order of his guru, Hèdayânanda began to make the necessary preparations. Gradually, the people that he had sent invitations to began to arrive, but upon hearing that a festival was being held on the Ganges riverbank, they proceeded there first. In the company of the many devotees, Hèdayânanda chanted and dance ecstatically. The sankirtan was so blissful and attractive that Their Lordships themselves, Ärî Ärî Gaura-Nityânanda, came to take part in the dancing and singing. Hèdayânanda was very fortunate to see all of this.

Meanwhile, Gaurî dâsa was also holding a festival in his house. When the time came for making an offering, the pujari, Boro Gaôgâ dâsa Paòàita entered the Deity room only to find that there were no Deities. He immediately informed Gaurî dâsa. Gaurî dâsa could understand the matter very well and, smiling, he picked up a stick and proceeded towards the kirtana festival on the banks of the Ganges. Arriving there, he saw the two transcendental brothers engaged in ecstatic dancing. Ärî Ärî Gaura-Nityânanda also saw Gaurî dâsa approaching in an angry mood with a stick in his hand, and They quickly and silently entered the temple of Hèdayânanda's heart. Seeing this Gaurî das couldn't restrain his tears of ecstasy. He forgot his anger and ran towards Hèdayânanda with his arms outstretched. Firmly embracing him he said, "You are so fortunate! From today your name is Hèdaycaitanya."

Gaurî dâsa began to bathe him with his tears as Hèdaycaitanya fell at his lotus feet. Then Gaurî dâsa took Hèdaycaitanya and all of the devotees to his courtyard where intense chanting and dancing continued. The assembled Vaisnavas filled the day with the vibrations of "Hari! Hari!" In this way the birth anniversary celebration of Gaurasundara was observed. Thereafter Gaurî dâsa appointed Hèdaycaitanya as the sevaka of the Deities.
