Eighteen Days - Sri Panca Tattva's Mayapur Lila

Eighteen Days - Sri Paica-tartya's MdyApur-IilA

all playing drums and singing the glories of Lord Cairanya. And now, finally, Lord Caitanya had arrived along with His four most intimate associates. When we began to carry the deities into the temple, Lord Caitanya entered first, but the doorway wasn't wide enough so we had to break the door. That reminded me of when Sri Panca-tattva appeared 500 years ago, in different parts of India, and They all came to the house of Srlvdsa Thdkura to plunder the hidden treasure, which is pure love of Radha and Krsla. They relished the transcendental mellow of Radha and Krsna by singing the holy names of Krsna. Then They started to dis- tribute to everyone. That distribution is still going on by the mercy of Srila Prabhupada. To continue to distribute that mercy, Caitanya Mahaprabhu has come again Himself in His deity form. Lord Caitanya's pastimes are not yet over. I was thinking that Lord Caitanya appeared 500 years ago, how nice it would have been to be present at that time. But actually, Gaurdtga and Nirydnanda, along with Their associates, are now in every ISKCON center to give Their personal association to every conditioned soul Therefore we have to very eagerly serve Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu's mission: pararh vijayate Sn-hrsna-sanhtrtanam: spreading the holy name to every corner of the world. When the members of the Paflca-tattva, along with other devotees, began to per- f.ormhannama saihlrtana in Mdyipur, everyone came to see. They forgot about eating, drinking, their daily duties. Similarly when Sri Panca-tattva came to ISKCON's Mdyipur Candrodaya Mandir, everyone forgor their own hunger, thirst, and daily service. All the devotees were standing on the roof of the building, some were sitting on the boundary wall of the temple. It was a very special day, difficult to express in words.

So whoever has not seen the Sri Panca-tattva must come and visit Them in Miydpur, and take this causeless mercy.
