All glories to Advaitacandra! All these brilliant moons have together dissipated the darkness of this material world. All glories to the moons who are devotees of the principal moon, Lord Caitanyacandra! Their bright moonshine illuminates the entire universe. First let me give a synopsis of the Lord’s pastimes.
Then I shall describe them in detail. In His original pastimes there are four divisions: In jubilation everyone was chanting the holy name of the Lord — “Hari! All the friendly ladies who came to see the child would chant the holy names, “Hari, Hari! When all the ladies saw this fun, they enjoyed laughing and called the Lord “Gaurahari. Thus His influence was wonderful. Day and night He used to dance in ecstasy with His devotees. In this way He inundated the whole world by distributing love of Godhead.
Manifesting symptoms of this separation, He cried and talked very inconsistently, like a madman. How much can a small living entity elaborate about those transcendental pastimes? Following those notes, I write of all the pastimes of the Lord. He has described the pastimes in such a way as to make them sweeter and sweeter.
Being afraid of his book’s becoming too voluminous, he left some places without vivid descriptions. I shall try to fill those places as far as possible.

Thus we do not find anything within this cosmic manifestation except the Lord Himself. This is not very wonderful for Him. Lord Caitanya therefore caotanya Him His elder brother.
Because of their pleasure, they specifically began to serve the lotus feet of Govinda. Your body is effulgent, and it appears as if the goddess of fortune were now staying personally in my home. Even without my asking, they voluntarily give me riches, clothing and paddy. I therefore understand that a great personality will soon take birth. In this way the pregnancy approached its thirteenth month, but still there was no sign of the delivery of the child. The whole world was pleased.
While the Hindus chanted the holy name of the Lord, the non-Hindus, especially the Muslims, jokingly imitated the words. While all the ladies vibrated the caitannya name of Hari on earth, in the heavenly planets dancing and music were going on, for the demigods were very curious. In this atmosphere, all the ten directions became jubilant, as did caitanyw waves of the rivers.
Moreover, all beings, moving and nonmoving, were overwhelmed with transcendental bliss. Thus by His causeless mercy lola full axi, Gaurahari, rose in the district of Nadia, which is compared to Udayagiri, where the sun first becomes visible.

His rising in the sky dissipated the darkness of sinful life, and thus the three worlds became joyful and chanted the holy name of the Lord. But why they were dancing, no one could understand. I cxitanya understand that there is some special purpose in these actions. Seeing the newborn child, whose form resembled natural glaring gold, all of them happily offered their blessings. No one could understand who was coming and who was going, who was dancing and who was singing.
Nor could they understand one another’s language.
Yet all unhappiness and lamentation were immediately dissipated, and people became all-jubilant. They performed the ritualistic ceremonies ari at the time of birth according to religious principles.
He honored them all by giving them riches in charity. She brought different kinds of golden ornaments, including armlets, necklaces, anklets and bangles for the hands.
There were also tiger nails set in gold, waist decorations of silk and lace, ornaments for the hands and legs, nicely printed silken saris, and a child’s garment, also made of silk. Many other riches, including gold and silver coins, were also presented to the child. All these presentations filled a large basket. She blessed the newborn child by placing fresh grass and paddy on Faitanya head and saying, “May You be blessed with a long duration of life.
Their house was always filled cxritamrta riches and grains. He was peaceful, restrained in sense gratification, pure and controlled. Therefore he had no desire to enjoy material opulence.
Thus he understood that in the future this child would deliver all the three worlds. Lord Caitanya is very merciful to anyone who hears this narration of His birth, and thus such a person attains the lotus feet of the Lord.
If after getting a human body one drinks the water in a poison pit of material happiness instead of the water of such a river, it would be better for him not to have lived, but to have died long ago. His Divine Grace A.
