News of great Acarya’s departures

posted in: DB, English, Kadacha ENG 0

When Syamananda came to Kantaknagar, he again met with Srinivasa Acarya, and in Jajigram he saw Raghunandana Thakura[1]. He was informed that by this time many of the last remaining personal associates of Mahaprabhu had recently disappeared from this world.

Gradually, Syamananda Prabhu entered Utkaladesa. Along the way he stayed at the homes of different devotees and blessed them with his mercy. In this way he again came to Gopiballabhpur.

Here when he received the news that his Guru, Sri Hridaya Caitanya Prabhu, had also departed from this world, he fainted right away. After recovering his consciousness, he wept for some time, terribly distraught. Hridaya Caitanya appeared to him in a dream and comforted him.

[1] This is a wonderful pastime of Raghunandana Dasa Thakura that everyone should know and enjoy.
