I DO NOT UNDERSTAND ANY OTHER MEANINGS

Prior to this, Vallabha Bhatta had told Mahaprabhu, “I have tried to describe elaborately the meaning of Krsna’s holy name. Kindly hear the explanation.”

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu replied, “I do not accept many different meanings for the holy name of Krsna. I only know that Krsna is Syamasundara and Yasodanandana. That’s all I know. The only purport of the holy name of Krsna is that He is dark blue like a tamala tree and is the son of Mother Yasoda. This is the conclusion of all the revealed scriptures. I conclusively know these two names, Syamasundara and Yasodanandana. I do not understand any other meanings, nor do I have the capacity to understand them.”

Whatever Vallabha Bhatta said, Mahaprabhu simply replied in such a way that he became speechless. Vallabha Bhatta wanted to defeat Mahaprabhu and show his own glory. He wanted to show, “How qualified I am. How learned I am.” But he was not able to defeat Mahaprabhu. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is jagad-guru, universal guru. Therefore, whatever He has ordered and whatever He has taught, we should try to follow totally.

WHY DID SRILA GURUDEVA HAVE LOVING QUARRELS WITH SRILA TRIVIKRAMA MAHARAJA?

The next morning, as Śrīla Gurudeva was brushing his teeth, Śrīla Trivikrama Mahārāja said to him, “You did not sleep last night. I can tell by your red eyes. You were only thinking, ‘Lalitā-sakhī, Lalitā-sakhī, Lalitā-sakhī!’ You never think about Kṛṣṇa! Only remembering ladies! Humph!” Śrīla Gurudeva flung down his toothbrush and threw a mugful of water at Śrīla Trikrama Mahārāja. “Machlī khor!” Śrīla Gurudeva shouted. “Sattū khor!” Śrīla Trivikrāma Mahārāja rejoined. Everyone present burst into laughter. For a minute Śrīla Gurudeva was silent; then Śrīla Trivikrama Mahārāja said, “Now I understand. You have been rejected and are lamenting; therefore you are distempered.” What is the meaning of this scene between Śrīla Gurudeva and Śrīla Trivikrama Mahārāja? Kṛṣṇa had rejected Candrāvalī and went to Śrīmatī Rādhikā, and then Trivikrama Mahārāja chimed, “Rejected! Rejected!” implying Gurudeva was in Candrāvalī’s party. Śrīla Gurudeva understood his hint. Becoming red in the face, Gurudeva angrily answered, “Yes, now Jaṭilā and Kuṭilā have come with Abhimanyu! You better run quickly.”

SRILA GURUDEVA'S MEETING WITH ISKCON'S GOUR GOVINDA MAHARAJA

Śrīla Gour Govinda Mahārāja lamented to Srila Gurudeva about the jīva-tattva resolution in ISKCON. “Now they are voting on siddhānta,” he said, “and they are turning Prabhupāda’s mission into an apasampradāya. But it cannot last. Śrīla Gour Govinda Svāmī then said, “Mahārāja, I would like to discuss with you in detail about rāgānuga-bhakti and rūpānuga-bhakti.”
