Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Śrī Rāya Rāmānanda are about to have a wonderful conversation on the bank of the Godāvarī, so all should come with me there, by heart, and we should all arrive together at that place.
The ocean has the power to manifest jewels. When the ocean is full of jewels it is called ratnālaya, a repository of precious jewels. When the rain falls at the time of the constellation of stars called svāti nakṣatra, it has a special potency, for the potential of the ocean to manifest jewels becomes realized at that time.
Here, the rain of svāti nakṣatra is Śrī Rāmānanda Rāya’s explanation of all bhakti-siddhānta. When the clouds of Rāmānanda Rāya sprinkled the rain of explanation on the ocean of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, His heart became the repository of jewels.
How can you conquer the heart of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu? Don’t criticize anyone. Have no concern for the nature and activities of others, but rather, always chant harināma without committing offense to any living entity.
