|Adi-lila||Chapter 17: The Pastimes of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu in His Youth|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrta Adi 17.245
sei-ksane dhana prabhu gangate padila
nityananda-haridasa dhari' uthaila
sei-ksane -- immediately; dhana -- running; prabhu -- the Lord; gangate -- in the water of the Ganges; padila -- plunged; nityananda -- Lord Nityananda; haridasa -- Haridasa Thakura; dhari' -- catching Him; uthaila -- raised Him.
Immediately He ran to the river Ganges and jumped in to counteract the sinful activities of that woman. Lord Nityananda and Haridasa Thakura caught Him and raised Him from the river.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is God Himself, but He was playing the part of a preacher. Every preacher should know that being allowed to touch a Vaisnava's feet and take dust may be good for the person who takes it, but it is not good for the person who allows it to be taken. As far as possible, this practice should ordinarily be avoided. Only initiated disciples should be allowed to take this advantage, not others. Those who are full of sinful activities should generally be avoided.
