Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda
Dev-Goswami Maharaj

19th World Tour in London

Informal room conversation in Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, London
25th July 2002.

Part One. Subject summary:

  • Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj Goswami is explaining Mahaprabhu's Pastimes after hearing from Raghunath Das Goswami and Swarup Damodar and Rupa Goswami. He heard Raghunath Das Goswami's daily diary. He explained every point in his own way. No one else could do like that, therefore the devotees were very worried that after Kaviraj Goswami none else would be able to give this conception, so they all requested him that even although he was eighty years old, still please give us that essence.
  • Then Kaviraj Goswami took permission from Madan Mohan to see if He wants it or not. When he went to His Temple, a garland fell down and was given to him from Madan Mohan, then he began writing Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita.
  • Srila Guru Maharaj explained two chapters to me: the one of Ramananda Ray and the one of Sarvabhauma Bhattacharyya -- chapters 6 and 8 of Chaitanya-charitamrita, Madhya-lila -- with full explanation, and that is my wealth.
  • I did not read without Srila Guru Maharaj's wish. When he wanted to hear some section, I would read, and where necessary he gave explanation. At that time we had plenty of time, with no disturbance from missionary activity. For two or three years we lived like that, and that is the wealth of my full life.
  • Srila Guru Maharaj arranged some songs of Bhaktivinod Thakur and of Narottama Das Thakur for us to learn. There, all wealth is given. Sambandha, abhideya and prayojana -- everything is going on within these three.
