If you are a surrendered soul, you are surrendering to Krishna, Krishna will save you, He will nourish you. He is all-powerful, all-mighty. And He knows past, future, and present. So you should surrender to Him. Don't tell that, 'You should give me this that.' He knows everything, what you require.

If you have appetite and thirst, you can feel happy and satisfied simply by drinking water and eating some spinach and only a dry chapati. However, if you have no hunger or thirst, there is no use to sit in front of a plate of even the most opulent foodstuff. Similarly, we should be full with love and affection in our offering to Lord Sri Krishna. Then He will be hungry and accept that offering.

You can only be happy if you have love and affection for Lord Sri Krishna. Offer yourself in the lotus feet of Krsna and surrender unto Him. By this you can be happy; there is no other way.

Anyone who takes to devotional service is exalted, whereas a non-devotee is always condemned and abominable. In the discharge of devotional service to the Lord, there is no consideration of the status of one's family lineage or of socio-cultural background.

Krishna says: Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be. As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change.

One may hear so many good instructions, but if he has no faith in the words of Guru, he will commit offenses.

continuation of Karnananda


She put a spot of saffron on her beautiful forehead and sweared the paste of camphor and sesame all over her body. She also smeared the perfume of musk which is compared with the perfume of the body of krsna all over her body. She colured her lips in red by chewing betel leaf and used collyrium to blaken her beautiful eyes. She painted a sectarian mark on her bright forhead and put a garland of flowers round her neck. She always tried to make herself beautiful to please krsna. The poet said that all should be grateful to Brahma i.e. providence as he has created Radha whose divine qualifications are above all saying. Those who failed to satisfy Radha is worshipped by the whole universe and by Narada and all the deities and Vaishnava asceties and devotees. Those who neglected to worship Radha who is the main source of power of krsna are taken to be follishly proud of their knowledge. So Sri Dasa Goswami directed everybody while worshipping krsna he should first worship Radha sincerely and regularly. Sri Dasa Goswami strictly followed the practice of worshipping Radha and krsna. He settled on the bank of the Radhakunda with Sri krsnadasa Gosvami and Loknatha and used to engage themselves always in Radha krsna nama Samkirtana for the whole day. During this time they used to enjoy most gladly the book Gopala Champaka. This book is consisted of very stiff slokas which externally dealt with the Swakiya Prema but interally meant the parakiya prema. Some people could not understand Sri Jiva and said that Sri Jiva wanted to say Swakiya Prema. But when they became able to understand the inner-meaning of it, their satisfaction knew no bounds. Sri Dasa Gosvami declared that as Vrindavana is the only place where the parakiya Prema Leela could be found, he would not go anywhere leaving Vrindavana. He also declared that he would perform his all spiritual and devotional duties in Vrindavana and he would die here. He prayed to Sri Jiva to be with him as his elder brother and to Sri Krsnadasa and Goswami Lokanatha as his friends. He wished he could die first leaving all of them. By following the meaning of ChampuGrantha, Goswami Kaviraj wrote the book Gopaka Champu in which he tried to discuss the daily activities of krsna and the Parakiya Prema. Those who are able to grasp it by heart, they are sure to get krsna in their lives. Self-willed krsna makes daily spors with his companious. The king desired to know what is meant by daily activities of krsna. Ramchandra pointed him out that there are three methods of it namely krsna Tatta Radha Tatta and Leela Tatta Ramachandra tried to make it elaborate to the king. He explained to the king all the points which Sanatana had learnt from Mahaprabhu. After neing familiar with all the unrevealed things of Vaisnava religion, the king humbly surrenderd himself to the favour of Ramcandra.




The Fifth Extract


The king requested Sri Ramachandra to explain the Gosvami writings to be followed by Ramcandra and others. Ramcandra agreed to explain why he and others received the writings from Sri Jiva. Foremerly Sri Jiva Goswami sent his book Gopala Champaka to Sri Nivasa. Sri Nivasa became very enchanted to go through the shole book of Sri Jiva. Sri Jiva dealt with pure parakiya leela in his book which thrilled Sri Nivasa. The inner meaning in this book was so difficult to grasp that everybody tried to understand only the described slokas of the book. Sri Nivasa wornered to find that as if Sri Jiva had fund a precious gem and he tried to conceal it from the eyes of others. As the extracts of Rasa larra in this book were beyong other's limitation of knowledge that prabhu Sri Nivasa directed them to worship the book as a deity. By providence, Sri Nivasa Chakravarty was forced to change his character. He did not understand the inner meaning of the book. He thought that the subject matter of the book obly dealt with Swakiya tatta. Formerly he was very proud of his knowledge but now luckily he became a changed person Formerly he was very proud of his knowledge but now luckily he became a changed person. Formerly when prabhu Sri Nivasa was in Yajigrama, he orderd Ramacandra's brohter to discribes krsna Leela. He described it as a purely Parakiya Tatta which maddenel the people who ever read it. Sri Thakur Mahasaya became ecstrtic in tasting the juice of it at khetari. Ramcandra and his two brothers also accompanied them. in the mean time Sri Vyasa Chakravarty came to join them and they together used to spend their time there. One day Sri Vyasa badly criticised some points which greatly hurt Ramacandra and his brothers. He crossd Ramachandra about the real meaning of Parkiya Tatta and told them that from them he had heard that Parakiya Vajana could be found in Swakiya Vajana. What would beits real meaning. Ramcandra replied him that Sri Vyasa could not understand his prabhu. He with his brothers began to think anxiously that what would be its answer. They all the time began thinking about the solution and the person from whom they could get the right solution. While thinking for a long time they wrote a letter to Sri Jiva.



They began to think of a bearer who would take the letter with him to Vrindavana and to give it to Sri Jiva Gosvami. They found Rai Vasanta who was a devoted Vagavata and very egarly wanted to visit Vrindavana. They delivered the letters to Sri Jiva Gosvami and his companious. Rai reaching Vrindavana gave the letters to Sri Jiva Gosvami. Then he gave the letters to the companies of Sri Jiva and told them everything elaborately what had happened there. After a few days Gosvami gave a reply to Sri nivasa. Sri Jiva Gosvami wrote the letter criticising Vyasa and wanted to know where Vyas recently had remained. He also wrote "I do not understand why Acharya had asked me about Vyasa. I am under his favour and his opinior is my opinion "From the letter it could me realised that the gain which could be got from Sadhana, depended upon the nature of Sadhana one had been performing. Sri Gosvami Krsnadasa had discussed this tattva in his book. In his opinion, if one worshipped for a particular motive in Vrja, one could reach his goal and could get the favour of krsna. Sri Jiva Gosvami formerly wrote a letter to Sri Nivasa. When Rai Vasanta reached Vrndavana, Sri Jiva Gosvami asked him about Sri Nivasa. Sri Rai Vasanta made him acquainted with all the news of Sri Nivasa. Sri Jiva sent a letter for Sri Nivasa who by getting it touched it by his head. After reading the letter Prabhu understood everything and began to weep. From there Rai came to Gauda and Ramcandra and his companions became very glad to get their letters. When Ramcandra asked Rai what was the prupose of this letter, Rai replied that the letter was written on comment of Sarma. Rai said that while Gosvami heard the reason of sending the letter he opined that there was no other person but sarma who could comment in this way. No Vaisnava devotee could dare to ask such type of questions. Only a brahmin pandit could do that.



Having heard about the letter the king was overwhelmed with joy and was in a state of ecstary. He negan to shed tears and out of ecstasy he fell to the ground and cried loudly by holding the feet of Ramacandra. Ramcandra lifted him from the ground and embraced him and began to weep loudly by throwing his hands round the king's reck. Ramacandra thanked him for his good luck because he had got favour of his prabhu. The king most humbly told Ramacandra that he only depended upon the favour of the latter because from him he was able to know so much beautiful theories and events of Vaisnava philosophy. Ramcandra warned him by saying that he should keep all the things in his own mind and should not disclose them to others. Ramcandra also advised the king that he should give up worldly activities and should try to absorb in this philosophical theories. One could not attain anything from worldly activities. The king then requested Ramacandra to make him acquinted with the episode of the meeting of Vatta Gosvami with Mahaprabhu, Ramchandra told him that this this episode had been written in the Sri Caitanya Caritamrita when Mahaprabhu had been visiting the holy places of South India. The episode of pilgrimage to South India can be found in the in ninth chapter of the middle position of the above-mentioned book. One Venkata Vatta, a devout Vaisnava cordially invited Mahaprabhu to his place. While Mahaprabhu reached his house, Venkata washed Mahaprabhu's feet with water and he and his family drank that water as carana-mrita. While visiting the holy places of South India, Mahaprabhu accidentally went to visit Sri Rangakshtra.



There was a man named Tailanga Vipraraja better known as Trimalla Vatta of a brahmin society. After finishing his bath at noon, Mahaprabhu with his companious came to visit the house of Trimalla Vatta and the Brahmin by coming in touch with the Vaisnava group became over whelemed in happiness. He washed the feet of Mahaprabhu and drank the water as carnamrita with all the members of his family He completelt surrendered to the grace of Mahaprabhu. Prabhu got some pleasure there and spend a few more days in his house. Mahaprabhu used to beg Viksha from him. While Mahaprabhu finished his eating, Trimalla Vatta took the scraps of his food and ate gladly with all the members of his family. He offered Mahaprabhu betel-leaf and humbly requested him to stay in his place during the four months of the rainy season as it had been difficult for Prabhu to go on a pilgrimage in the rainy season. Prabhu gladly agreed to his request which very much pleased Vatta and his family members. During the period of prabhu's staying there, Malla most sincerely and carefully nursed him. Prabhu spent most gladly these four months in his house by taking bath in the Kaveri river, visiting the temple of Rauganatha and singing and dancing with his companions. The little son Venkata, Sri Gopala Vatta most sincerely and devotedly nursed Mahaprabhu this time. His father finding him a sincere divotee, engaged him in this task. Gopala's sincere duties towards prabhu were beyond any saying. The boy had a fair complexion and had enough knowledge. Hesplke very gently and was very graceful in looking. His arms were long reacing down to the knees, naval was deep and he was very gentle in his nature. His eyes were looked like petals of lotus and his chest was broad. His palms and feet were red in colour. He used to do every task before prabhu told him to do this or that. Prabhu was very much inpressed to find him so dutiful. Prabhu was so satisfied by his nurseing that he favoured his whole family along with the servants and maid servants. One day while Mahaprabhu was taking rest, Sri Vatta Goswami was massaging his legs. Being fully satisfied by their massaging, Mahaprabhu told so me thing to the boy confidentially. While Prabhu addressed him as a confidante of Sri Radha, Vatta addressed him as Vrajendranandana himself who this time appeared taking the origin of Radha and who by giving up the blue colour of krsna appeared in the golden colour. While taking about all these things, they both absorbed in ecstasy. Returning back to their senses, prabhu advised him that he should take care of his parents for somedays and then he should go to Vrindavana where he could meet Rupa and Sanatana and would get much pleasure there.


Mahaprabhu gifted him a Kaupina (a small piece of loin cloth worn after the fashion of a suspensor by Indian asceties) and a bahirvasa (a thin-acarf for the upper body). Gopala took these with reverence by touching them by his head and bowed to the feet of Mahaprabhu by stetching himself on the ground. Prabhu lifted him and embraced him in his bosom. He directed him some important things and told him to take them as him order he told him that a brabhmin youngman would come to Vrindavana from Gauda whose name was Sri Nivasa who was empowered by Mahaprabhu, Gopala should handed over this kaupina and bahirvasa to him and should give him one lac books and should send him back to Gauda. Gopala must tell Rupa Sanatana to give Sri Nivasa the book Vrja Vilasa and should tell them that he was also empowered by Mahaprabhu. Vatta atonce agreed to obey his order and bowed to his feet. Prabhu also advised him that he would return back to here very soon after completing his South India tour and that time Vatta would go to Vrndavana. Prabhu assured him that hewould send one asana (anything used for sitting upon) and one dora (athread a holy one) to him. He would sit on the Asana and wear the dora round his reck and took Sri Nivasa into his confidence. Gopala Vatta concealed all the things given to him by Mahaprabhu in a hiding place with utmost care. Sri Vatta Gosvami went to Vrndavana and met Sri Rupa Sanatana and remained with them. Sri Kaviraj Gosvami described all these things in his book Sri Caitanya Caritamrita. So Sri Gopal Vatta was one of the most Significant branch of Mahaprabhu. Sri Gosvami kaviraj wrote in his book the hymns praising Sri Vatta Gosvami who had great devotion for Hari and who had no interest in riches. Kaviraj Gosvami spoke highly of Gopala Vatta who always used to shed tears in the name krsna he began to sweat when dancing in samkirtana and he used to sing always Hare Krsna nama. Kaviraj Gosvami tried to prove that famous Sri Guna manjari, the confidante of Sri Radha in Vrndavana and Sri Goplala Vatta were the same features.



Toemancipate the mankind of the kaliyaga, he appeared in this world to distribute prema rasa to all. The hymns which Kaviraj Gosvami had written in his book would help to expel darkness. Those who read them sincerely and devotedly was sure to be included in the group of confidantes of Radha and sure to get the blessing of Radha krsna. Sanatana Gosvami in his book Harivakti Vilasa and exposed everything of Gopala Vatta. Gosvami in his book Vaisnava Torani said that Gopala Vatta and Raghunath Dasa were specially favoured by Radha and Krsna. If these two great devotees gave shelter to anybody, he was sure to succeed in his spiritual life. Ramacandra wanted the give to proof of this assimption very carefully. He described another topic to the king which has been mentoned in karna Rasayana. It says that if anyone nourished any reverse impression about these three great vetoees, one should be guilty of a lot of vices. The meaning of this comment would be clear only to one who knew Sanatana Gosvami and got kind love from him, to one who had a good friendly relation with Sri Rupa who had no other than Sri Radha Ramana in his mind and to one who would be inclined to worship Gopala Vatta who accompanied always Rupa Sanatana in Vrndavana. Now Rama Candra told him about the promise of prabhu which helped one to forgent all the wiseries. He cited hymns from Navaratna and advised the king to take all these hymns in his heart seriously. The king was very glad to hear this. For this purpose Yadunandana Dasa wrote Karnananda which tried to exhance the devotional spirit of mankind.



The Sixth Extract


This extract begins with the names of Mahaprabhu, Nityananda, Advaita Candra and all the devotees of Sri Gauranga. Now this extract is going to explain the promise of prabhu which helps to forget all worldly miseries. This is quoted from the karna rasayana. To fulfil the intention of preaching the pure Vrjaleela in Gauda Mahaprabhu empowered Sri Rupa in this task. With the help of this power from prabhu Sri Rupa wrote a book. Sri Gauranga also empowered the desire to worship the feet of Mahaprabhu who was then in Nilacala. Sri Nivasa by giving up all attractions started for Nilacala. But on his way to Nilacala, hewas informed of the news that Mahaprabhu had disappeared from the world. Hearing this heart-broken news, Sri Nivasa atonce fainted on the ground and sank in deep misery. At this state of mind he sometimes got back his sense, sometimes fainted again and sometimes began to cry loudly. Mahaprabhu having seen the misery of his devoted disciple, appeared before Sri nivasa and consoled him by putting his leg on his head. He gently and sweetly advised Sri Nivasa to check himself and so to Vrndavana to meet Sri Rupa Sanatana there who had already finished his book Radha krsna Leela. He ordered Sri Nivasa to go to Gauda with those books and preached their sayings there. Sri Nivasa being ordered by Prabhu atonce started for Vrndavana. He was over whelmed with joy by the natural beauty of that place. From there ne went to Mathuramandala and was informed of the news of disappearance of the two renowned brothers. Sri Nivasa atonce threw himself on the ground and cried out loudly. He miserably repented that there was no necessity of his own life as he did not have the company of the two brothers. Having settled his mankind, he fainted under the tree. Seeing him grievously heart-broken. The two brothers out of sympathy appeared before him and put their legs upon the head of Sri Nivasa. They gladly told Sri Nivasa that the whole mankind including poor, mean and misery-stricken might be able to achieve salvation by the help of the kindness of Sri Nivasa. They advised him to give up the sorrow and atonce go to Sri Vatta Gosvami to take refuge in his feet. They also advised his to get himself initiated to Gopala Vatta. From there he should go to Gauda taking the books with him and to help the misery-stricken mankind to attain salvation. Atonce he obeyed the order and went to Vrndavana where he met Sri Gopala Vatta. He fell to the ground and took the legs of Vatta Gosvami on his head.



He humbly requested Vatta Gosvami to favour hi. He reported everything to him what Sri Rupa and Sanatana had ordered him to do, Hearing this Vatta Gosvami began to shed tears of joy. He most cordially accepted Sri Nivasa in to his confidence and thanked Mahaprabhu for his gift i.e. sending of Sri Nivasa to him. He showed Sri Nivasa the original handwriting of Mahaprabhu which he had kept with him for Sri Nivasa and the Asana and the dora sent to him by Mahaprabhu. Now he advised Sri Nivasa to sit on the Asana. He then gave him diksha and the hymns of worship. He also taught him the lessons of the books. Gradually Sri Nivasa became qualified in the books which was highly appreciated by all the Gosvami's there. Sri Jiva ordered Sri Nivasa to go to Gauda. Sri Jiva told him that it was the order of Mahaprabhu who had already sent a letter from Sri Nilachalato Sri Rupa in this connection. Sri Jiva reported him that receiving the letter Sri Jiva's Prabhu began to weep because it was his assumption that he would not be able to meet Sri Nivasa who was an embodiment of pure love. Sri Jiva Gosvami ordered Sri Nivasa to go to Gauda with the boks. But Sri Nivasa most hubly expressed his intention that when he was with Mahaprabhu, he cherished the desires of living in vrindavana and of nursing prabhu. So he did not want to go to Gauda. He said that as it was the order of his Guru which he must obey by going to Gauda but he prayed for a favour from Sri Jiva another Gosvamis that he wanted that who would come in contact with him was sure to attain the grance of Radha krsna. He was determined that he would not go to Gauda until the requised favour would be fulfilled. Listending to this, Jiva Goswamy was full of ecstatic joy. He and all the Gosvamis gathered in the temple of Lord Govinda and began to pray to him. Sri Vatta Gosvamy, Sri Dasa Gosvamy, Sri Jiva Gosvamy, Vatta Raghunath, Loknath Gosvamy and Vugarva Thakura-all of them prayed for a long time to Govinda. Sri Govinda became satisfied by their prayer and told them that he had himself taken the semblance of Sri Gaurnaga in Gauda to taste the juice of Radha krsna Leela and had swept the people there by the wave of divine love. He himself created Sri Nivasa out of this love.


So Sri Nivasa's request would must be fulfilled by him. The Gosvamis heard the necter - like order from the moon-like mouth of Sri Govinda to send Sri Nivasa to Gauda with the books, Sri Nivasa in ecstatic joy began to weep by lying on the ground. The Gosvamis were also over whelered with divine pleasure. Sri Nivasa out of ecstatic joy had described the moon like face of Sri Govinda in highly ornamental language. Listening to the description, all of them wept in joy. Sri Nivasa bowed to the feet of Sri Jiva. Then he embraced some of them and some bowed to the feet of Sri Nivasa. After that the priest of Sri Krsna, Adhikari Gosvami gladly lay Govinda on the bed and gave the garland of Govinda to Sri Nivasa. All the Gosvamis put it round his neck which greatly pleased Sri Nivasa. They them dined togethers the acraps of food first of all offered to Govenda. They took betel-leaves and Tulsimala and returned to their own house. Next day while they gathered, they advised Sri Nivasa to go to Gauda with the books. Sri Vatta Goswami brought the kaupina and the babirvasa from his room and gave these to Sri Nivasa and told everybody that when Mahaprabhu had met Vatta in South India he ordered him to give this kaupina and the bahirvasa to Sri Nivasa when the latter would come to Vrndavana. Mahaprabhu also advised him to inform Sri Nivasa that he should obey the order of Sri Vatta taking it in his mind that it was the order of Mahaprabhu himself. Sri Vatta had informed everything to Rupa and Sanatana who became very glad to hear this.



Then all the Gosvamis gladly gave permission to Sri Nivasa to return back to Gauda. Prabhu Sri Nivasa began to describe Sri Vatta Gosvami as an embodiment of Sri Guan Manjari, a confidante of Sri Radhika in some lyrics written by himself. The Gosvamis were all enchanted to listen to the lyrics. Sri Dasa Gosvami being highly impressed took him in his lap and began to soak his body with the tears of joy. He told Sri Nivasa that only to meet him he had come to Sri kundu and would not vet leave this place. As he was greatly shocked by the disappearance of Rupa and Sanatana, he had no consolation in his mind. But now his misery had gone away go a great extent by the presence of Sri Nivasa who was in his opinion, a highly fortunate person. He openely declared that to see Sri Nivasa, he could regain the place which he had lost since the disappearance of those two brothers. He showed Sri Nivasa the Danda (a stick) and the Govardhana Sila used by prabhu and the other things which had since been kept for Sri Nivasa such as the original handwriting of Mahaprabhu, the books of Rupa Sanatana etc, he confessed that for Sri Nivasa, they could hear the nectar-like order of Sri Govinda. It was Sri Nivasa for whom Rupa Sanatana had left their orders before their disappearance and it washed for whom all of them were waiting so long. Sir Vatta Gosvami with the help of Sri Dasa Gosvami handed over to Sri Nivasa the kaupina and babirvasa given by Mahaprabhu and the offered garland of Sri Govinda. At the same time he offred him the idol of Sri Vamsivadana salagrama most gladly.



Then they blessed him in the name of Sri Radha Govinda and Rupa Sanatana. Then Sri Nivasa worshipped the feet of his Guru, took the permission from all of them and showed his reverence to all the Vrajavasis and started for Gauda taking the books with him. The Gosvamis with the hundreds of Vrajavasis followed Sri Nivasa. While following Sri Nivasa a little more than two miles of the way they began to repent to the providence that why he took Sri Nivasa away from them. The poet gave a heart broken description of the separation of Sri Nivasa with the Vrajavasis. Even the animals and birds of Vraja also cried in his separation. But after a while they controlled themselves and directed prabhu Sri Nivasa to start for Gauda happily. While they were returning to Vrndavana, they started crying in their way. All these descriptions are to be found in the book prem Vilasa. Sri Nityananda Dasa who wrote and published this book as per order of Sri Janhava. Prabhu Nivasa reached Gauda with the books and that time he favoured the king. Ramcandra said to the king that he had already wrote two lyrics in which he tried to narrate the way by which Sri Nivasa had kept his promise by giving favour to the king. Ramcandra advised the king that as he was a fortunate man that he had got the favour of his prabhu, he should whole heartedly worship the feet of his Prabhu Ramcandra gave the king many lessons for two months. The king was highly satisfied. He offered a village as a gift to his Guru Ramcandra and bowed to him by throwing himself on the feet of Ramacandra. The poet, Yadunandana paid his heartiest homage to the feet of Ramcandra from who the king learnt many lessons of Vaisnava treatises. He prayed to prabhu Sri Nivasa to give him a shelter under his feet. He wished he could be his dog who would love to eat the scraps of his food in the hope that one day Prabhu would favour him. He wished he could be one of the servants of Prabhu for the whole term of his life. He addressed prabhu as the deliverer of sinners and prayed to him to deliver him from damnation. He said that there was none but prabhu o whom he could depend for his salvation. He wished that in hsi future birth he wanted to be one of the servants of prabhu. He confessed that being an ignorant person, he knew nothing about tge methods of worship.



Though he had no capacity of describing the wonderful Leelas of krsna and the devotees of krsna. Yet he prayed to prabhu to forgive him for his inefficiency. He began to speak of himself and of the completion of his book, he lived at Bundhaipara on the bank of the Janhabi river with his wife. At the age of 29 years by taking the lotus-like feet of his prabhu on his head in the month of Vaishakh and in the day of the full moon he had finished his book. He being Yadunath Dasa who is a servant of a servant of Sri krsna Caitanya prabhu wrote the book which pleased Thakurani who kept the name of the book as karnananda. Srimati with her confidantes read the book and she was overwhelmed with ecstasy and began to shed tears of joy. She put her led on the head of Yadunandana and with a smile said to him that he through his book gave her much pleasure. Addressing him as her son, requested him to tell her something about Kaviraj and his community and Chakravarty and his community. The poet firstly prayed to his Guru and asked his favour in this task. As per order of his prabhu he narrated the overmentioned topics. He wrote that there were eight Kavirajas and six Chakravartys. Firstly he would explain the topic about eight Kavirajas and secondly he would explain the topic about the six Chakravartys. The eldest among the eight Kavirajas was Sri Ramacandra Kaviraja who had become famous in this world.



His brother was Sri Kaviraja Govinda who had a fine character. Then came Sri Karnapura Kayiraja Thakur, Sri Nrisinha Kaviraja Thakur who was famous for his methods of worship, Sri Vagawana Kaviraja who knew nothing but the grace of Prabhu, Sri Vallavidasa Kaviraja who was a man of purely divine character, Sri Gopiramana Kaviraj and Kavirja Sri Gokulananda. Now he described the other branches of the main Kaviraja community. Kaviraja Dibyasinha was the son of Sri Govinda was regarded to be a mad bumble-bee flying on the lotus-like feet of prabhu. Sri Vasudeva Kaviraja Dasa Vanamali was very eager to do good to mankind. Kaviraja Diurgadasa always wished to eat scraps of food eaten by the Vaisnavas. Kaviraja Thakur was a man full of divine love. His brother Sri Nemai Kaviraja had nothing to do except nursing the feet of prabhu. Shyama Dasa Kaviraja was his step-brother who was a very scholarly man. Sri Narayana Kaviraja was the brother of Nrismha. Sri Vallavi Kaviraja had two brothers Sri Ramadasa Kaviraja Thakur and Kaviraja Gopaladasa. Here the poet had mentioned the twenty nine names of the kaviraja community whose names always created the feeling of love in the minds of everybody. Now he presented the nams of the six Chakravartys. The most famous among the six Chakravartys was Sri Govinda Chakravarty. He always used to engage himself in worshipping prabhu. He now spoke of the two brother-in-law of prabhu who were very efficient in the method of worship. They were Sri Shyamadasa Chakravarty Thakur and Ramcandra Chakravarty. Another Chakravarty was Chakravarty Vyasa who lived at Visnupura.



Then the names came as Ramakrsna Chakravarty Thakur and Sri Gokulananda Chakravarty who also loved to serve the Vaisnavas. There were other Chakravartys of the six Chakravarty community-Maharaj Chakravarty Sri Vira Hamvira who was a great devotee of prabhu, Sril Dasa Chakravarty who had Harinama in his tongue all the time, Ramachandra Chakravarty, Sri Radha Vallava Chakravarty, Sril Rupaghataka Chakravarty and Chakravarty Thakurer Thakur. The poet had given the twelve names of the Chakravarty community. Prabhu worshipped the feet of all these parama Vagavatas and took great pleasure in hearing history of these two communities. As Srimati also took great pleasure in hearing all these, the poet thought that his book karnananda was a successful one. With the blessing of Srimati, Yadunandana wrote the book Karnananda.



The Seventh Extract


This extract begins with the names of Mahaprabhu, the deliverer of distressed mankind Sri Nityananda, the symbol of kindness, Sita Natha, Advaita, Isvara and Srivasa, the companious of prabhu, Sri Swarup Damodora, Ramananda, the mine of premarasa, Sanatana, deliverer of sinners, Sri Gopala Vatta, Sri Raghunath Vatta, Sri Dasa Gosvami, Sri Jiva Gosvami, Sri Acharya prabhu, the ocean of kindness, Ramcandra and his two brothers Sri Vaisnava Gosvami. The poet appealed to the listerness to listen to it attentively. Having listened to the book, Prabhu felt very satisfied and blessed him kind-heartedly. Srimati addressed him as her son and relieved him as already he had got the favour of prabhu. The poet, Yadunandana requested humbly to Prabhu to release him from a doubt which he had long been cultivating in his mind. Prabhu agreed to do this and asked him about his doubt. Nityananda Dasa in his prema vilasa wrote as per orderof Janhava about the character of prabhu. When prabhu was on the way to Gauda with the books some bandits mistakenly stole the books. When Gosvami heard this, he became very much dis-heartened. Sri Dasa Gosvami and Sri Kaviraj Gosvami both hurriedly came to Sri kunda. When they heard the missing of the books, Dasa Gosvami threw himself in to the water of the Sri kunda in grief.



As the grief was un bearable, Sri Kaviraj Gosvami died befor ethe death of Sri Dasa Gosvami. Here liay the doubt of the poet because he had already read all the books by Kaviraj Gosvami where he had written about Raghunath Dasa "Late Sri Raghunath Dasa". How it could be possible that kaviraj died before the death of Raghunath. Listening to him Thakurani sweetly told him that formerly Ramacandra had asked the same question to prabhu and the reply of prabhu had satisfied Ramcandra which she also over-heard at that tike. She reported him that prabhu had been saying to Ramcandra that Raghunath was a man of strict principles and was determined to keep his promise. The separation of Sri Rupa Gosvami so dis-hearted Dasa Gosvami that he used to spend his days on the bank of the Radha kunda as a blind man and all the time kept himself in thinking of his own death. In the mean time he got the news of missing of the books. This is completely broke him. He began to repent by crying loudly. Being in patient, Gosvami attained him desired death. The people of the Radha Kunda becam every sad. This incident geatly made Rupa Sanatana anxious who after thinking of the promise uttered by Raghunatha, told kaviraja the importance of the incident. They said that it was for this book, Mahaprabhu had sent his writing, ordering them to hand it over to Sri Nivasa, that it was for this book, Mahabrabhu had sent his writing ordering them to hard it over to Sri Nivasa, that it was for this book that Mahaprabhu had empowered Sri Rupa for writing this book and that it was for this book he also had empowered Sri Nivasa to preach the lessons of this book of Gauda.



So it was the order of Mahaprabhu himself which could not be endangered by any living being in this world. So they advised Kaviraj Gosvami to give up all his miseries and repentances for the books which were sure to be recovered again. They also advised him to attend and to look after Raghunath sincerely for a few days and then he again could be included in the group of the companious of Raupa Sanatana. As per order of the two brothers, kaviraj again regained his life. After this all the deities in the sky began to think of the promise of Raghunath which, in their opinion, could not be violated by any one in this world. He promised that he would eat kshira (a milk prepation), made in Vraja, would wear the leaves of trees of Vraja and by living in Sri kunda of Giri Govardhana, he could succeed in destroying his own pride. He also promised that he must die the bank of the Radhakunda. He would leave behind him Sril Jiva, Sri Krsnadasa and Lokanatha Gosvami. Suddenly there came an oracle from the sky addressing Kaviraja that he must get the news of the recovery of the book. The oracle of the deitius and the order of the two brothers helped krsnadasa to regain his life as an omniscient saint. Kaviraja in his book caritamrita wrote about the ecstatic condition of Mahaprabhu in his meditation when Mahaprabhu had viewed the 'Jalakeli Leela' of krsna and Radha in the Yamuna river where as Swarupa and others became anxious about Mahaprabhu.



They got the news of Mahaprabhu from a fisherman. They atonce hurried to the bank of the river and found prabhu in half-died condition. They began to sing harinama loudlu into his ears and gradually Mahaprabhu got back his senses. The opinion of the poet was that only an omniscient saint like Kaviraja could describe the in ward and outward conditions of Mahaprabhu. Listening to all these incidents Ramcandra threw himself on the ground and bowed to the feet of prabhu, prabhu, placing his leg on the head of ramacandra gladly took him in his bosom and advised him to keep all these things in his heart. Then prabhu went on saying that Ramcandra was his most favourite and faithful disciple prabhu said satisfactorily that he who would worship like Ramcandra, must obtain favour of prabhu. Ramacandra was ever grateful to prabhu as he came to know from him that Raghunath was the same empodiment of Sri Rupa. The poet had been listening all these things from Srimati which highly satisfied him. He addressed to the listeners that it was the blessing and kindness of his Isvari that he was able to find out a solution of his doubt. Now he bowed to the deovted companious of Sri Acharya prabhu and requested them to fulfil his intentions for he knew that only their blessings could help a person to attain pure duration and love for God. He wanted to get the most cherishable companies of Sri Rupa Sanatana and Sri krsna Caitanya prabhu and Acharya prabhu. He paid his heartiest homage to the feet of Sril Hemlata, the daughter of Sri Acharya prabhu who was a Kalpavalli (a paradisiaeal creeper) of devotional love as ever created by the providence. By holding the lotus - like feet of Sril Hemlata on his head, he, Yadunandanadasa completed his book, Karnananda.
