|Antya-lila||Chapter 12: The Loving Dealings Between Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Jagadananda Pandita|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrta Antya 12 Summary
A summary of the Twelfth Chapter is given by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura in his Amrta-pravaha-bhasya as follows. This chapter discusses the transformations of ecstatic love that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu exhibited day and night. The devotees from Bengal again journeyed to Jagannatha Puri to see Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. As usual, the leader was Sivananda Sena, who traveled with his wife and children. Because arrangements were delayed en route and Lord Nityananda did not have a suitable place to reside, He became somewhat disturbed. Thus He became very angry with Sivananda Sena, who was in charge of the affairs of the party, and kicked him in loving anger. Sivananda Sena felt highly favored to have been kicked by Nityananda Prabhu, but his nephew Srikanta Sena became upset and therefore left their company. He met Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu at Jagannatha Puri before the rest of the party arrived.
That year a devotee named Paramesvara dasa Modaka also went with his family to see Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu at Jagannatha Puri. The devotees often invited Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu to eat with them. When the Lord bade them all farewell, He talked very pleasingly with them. The year before, Jagadananda Pandita had been sent to Sacimata with prasadam and cloth. This year he returned to Puri with a big pot of floral-scented sandalwood oil to massage the Lord's head. The Lord, however, would not accept the oil, and because of His refusal, Jagadananda Pandita broke the pot in front of Him and began to fast. The Lord tried to pacify him and asked Jagadananda Pandita to cook for Him. Jagadananda Pandita became so pleased when Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu accepted his cooking that he broke his fast.
