Ghantasila pastime (in English)

posted in: DB, English, Kadacha ENG 0

One day, to test Sri Syamananda Prabhu and Sri Rasikananda Prabhu, King Navina Kisora Dhal sent some stones of the shape and color of potatoes together with other foodstuffs.

As soon as he saw those stones, Rasikananda understood the real intentions of the king.

He used the stones in different vegetable preparations and then offered it all to Krishna’s deity, and everything tasted great.

Because he cooked (ghanta) the stones (sila) like potatoes, that place became known as Ghantasila, nowadays situated near Tata Nagar, Jharakhanda, and testifies to the transcendental pastimes of Rasikananda Prabhu.
