|Madhya-lila||Chapter 2: The Ecstatic Manifestations of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrita Madhya 2.81
apane kari' asvadane, sikhaila bhakta-gane,
prema-cintamanira prabhu dhani
nahi jane sthanasthana, yare tare kaila dana,
mahaprabhu -- data-siromani
apane -- personally; kari' -- doing; asvadane -- tasting; sikhaila -- He taught; bhakta-gane -- to His direct disciples; prema-cintamanira -- of the touchstone of love of Godhead; prabhu -- the Lord; dhani -- capitalist; nahi -- does not; jane -- know; sthana-asthana -- the proper place or improper place; yare -- to whomever; tare -- to him; kaila -- made; dana -- charity; mahaprabhu -- Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; data-siromani -- the most munificent personality.
By personally tasting the mellows of love of Godhead, Caitanya Mahaprabhu taught His direct disciples the process. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is a wealthy capitalist possessing the touchstone of love of God. Not considering whether one is a proper or improper recipient, He gives His treasure to anyone and everyone. Thus He is the most munificent.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's capital is the touchstone of love of Godhead, and consequently He is a great owner of that transcendental treasure. After making unlimited amounts of gold, the touchstone remains the same. Similarly, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, although distributing love of Godhead unlimitedly, still remained the supreme owner of this transcendental opulence. His devotees, who learned it from Him, also had to distribute it munificently all over the world. This Krishna consciousness movement, following in the footsteps of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and His confidential devotees, is also trying to distribute love of Godhead all over the world through the chanting of the holy names of the Lord -- Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.
