Antya-līlāChapter 5: How Pradyumna Miśra Received Instructions from Rāmānanda Rāya

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 5.88

śrī-caitanya-līlā eiamṛtera sindhu

trijagat bhāsāite pāre yāra eka bindu

SYNONYMS

śrī-caitanya-līlā — transcendental activities of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; ei — these; amṛtera sindhu — the ocean of nectar; tri-jagat — the three worlds; bhāsāiteto inundate; pāre — is able; yāra — of which; eka bindu — one drop.

TRANSLATION

The activities of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu are just like an ocean of nectar. Even a drop of this ocean can inundate all the three worlds.

PURPORT

To inundate the three worlds with nectar is the purpose of the pastimes of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. How this could be possible was exhibited by Śrīla Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī and later by Ṭhākura Narottama dāsa and Śyāmānanda Gosvāmī, who all represented the mercy of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Now that same mercy is overflooding the entire world through the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement. The present Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is nondifferent from the pastimes performed by Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu when He was personally present, for the same principles are being followed and the same actions performed without fail.
