Therefore I am praying to the Lord for His causeless mercy upon me. I am lame and ill advised, yet They are my directors, and Their lotus feet are everything to me.
I offer my humble obeisances unto Them. I have therefore given only a synopsis of those incidents, and whatever specifics were to be related have already been given in that synopsis. Whatever incidents are outstanding, however, I shall later elaborate. Only upon his orders am I trying to chew the remnants of food that he has left.
Placing his lotus feet upon my head in great devotion, I shall now describe in summary the Lord’s final pastimes. The final pastimes of the Lord, occurring in His last twenty-four years, are called madhya [middle] and antya [final].
All the devotees of the Lord refer to His pastimes according to these divisions. By chanting and dancing, He introduced the loving service of the Lord. Even though the people were fallen souls and blasphemers, they were delivered by this process.
In this way they delivered all rascals and fallen souls. For twenty consecutive years this meeting took place, and the situation became so intense that the Lord and the devotees could not be happy without meeting one another. Sometimes He laughed, lika sometimes He cried; sometimes He danced, and sometimes He chanted in great sorrow. Almost no one could understand the meaning of that verse.
These are the same moonlit nights of the month of Caitra. In our intimate relationship, I am also the same lover, yet still my mind is not happy here. That is my desire. If one of these three was not present, He would meet the others. That was His regular practice. Then, taking him on His lap, He began to speak to him. I shall describe all these incidents elaborately later on. Mwdhya I have given only a brief reference. Now, O devotees, please lilz a brief explanation of this verse.
Thus the atmosphere was not congenial for Their meeting. We wish that these lotus feet may also be awakened within our hearts, although we are only ordinary persons engaged in household affairs. His desire to see that form was always mxdhya.
Thus He executed His last pastimes in three ways. Who can understand the purport of such pastimes?
Sri Caitanya Caritamrta Madhya-lila Chapter 4 Verse
Just to indicate those pastimes, I am presenting a general survey of the chief pastimes in the form of a synopsis. This is the first synopsis: This was His first acceptance of alms. At night He performed congregational chanting there. The Mwdhya remained unconscious until the afternoon, when He finally regained His consciousness.
He visited the places known as Tirumala and Tirupati, where He extensively preached the chanting of the Lord’s holy name.

Knowing these books to be excellent, He took them to present to His devotees. His lamentation knew no bounds. After due consideration, all the devotees began chanting the holy name congregationally.
Lord Caitanya ‘s mind was thus pacified by the ecstasy of the chanting. Afterwards, when the Bengali devotees were about to return home, the Lord gave separate orders to almost every one of them. In other words, she cursed her son-in-law to die. At that time He carried a balance with pots of yogurt and wheeled a rod about. For five consecutive days all the people gathered to see the Lord, and still there was no rest.
He bedecked the road with jewels, upon which he then laid a bed of stemless flowers. He mentally decorated both sides of the road with bakula flower trees, and at intervals on both sides he placed lakes of a transcendental nature.
These lakes had bathing places constructed with jewels, and they were filled with blossoming lotus flowers. There were various birds chirping, and the water cartiamrta exactly like nectar.
The entire road was surcharged with many cool breezes, which carried the fragrances from various flowers. He could not understand why the road’s construction could not be completed, and thus he was astonished. All of you will come to know of this later, but I now say this with great assurance. Wherever the Lord visited, crowds of innumerable people came to see Him. When they saw Him, all their unhappiness and lamentation disappeared.
Wherever the Lord touched the ground with His lotus feet, people immediately came and gathered the dirt. Indeed, they gathered so much that many holes were created in the road.

This village is situated on the border of Bengal and is very exquisite. I can surely understand caitanha fact. The Muslim King ordered the magistrate, “Do not disturb this Hindu prophet out of jealousy.
Let Him do His own will wherever He likes. I think that you should not be very interested in Him, for there is no profit in it. Rather, there is simply loss. By His grace, all your business is successful. By His blessings, you will attain victory everywhere. Better that you question your own mind.
Because you are the King of the people, you are the representative of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Therefore you can understand this better than I. He assured the King that whatever occurred in his mind could caritamfta considered evidence.
There is no doubt about it. In great humility, both brothers took bunches of straw between their teeth and, each binding a cloth around his neck, fell down like cwritamrta before the Ccaritamrta. The two brothers got up, and again taking straw between their teeth, they humbly offered their prayers with folded hands.
All glories to the Supreme Personality! Therefore we cannot introduce ourselves to You. We feel very much ashamed, standing here before You. Even if we wanted to mention our sinful activities, we would immediately become ashamed.
And what caihanya speak of giving them up! The two brothers submitted, “Dear Lord, You have incarnated to deliver the fallen souls.
You should consider that in this world there is kadhya so fallen as us. They never served low-class persons, nor were they instruments to abominable activities. Vaitanya, volumes of sinful activity can be burned to ashes simply by a dim reflection of the chanting of Your holy name. Fortunately, that holy name became the cause of their deliverance. We are more degraded, fallen and sinful than they.
Indeed, our activities are exactly like those of the meat-eaters. You are the only savior of the fallen souls; therefore there is no one madjya You.
Plainly hear us, O merciful one. There is no other object of mercy within the three worlds but us. Let the power of Your mercy be exhibited throughout the entire universe! It is not at all false but is full of meaning. If You are not merciful upon us, then it will be very, very difficult to find more suitable candidates for Your mercy.
Yet since we have heard of Your transcendental qualities, we are very much attracted to You. Although we are completely unfit, a desire to receive Your mercy is awakening within our minds. When shall I engage as Your permanent eternal servant and always feel joyful to have such a fitting master? Now please abandon your humility, for My heart mdahya breaking to see you so humble. I can understand your behavior from those letters. Therefore, in caritammrta to teach you, I sent you one verse, which reads as follows.
No one knows My intentions. Now you can go home. Do not fear anything. The Lord then placed His caianya hands on the heads of both of them, and in return they immediately placed the lotus feet of the Lord on their heads. After this, the Lord embraced both of them and requested all of the devotees present to be merciful upon them and deliver them.
When all of the devotees saw the mercy of the Lord upon the two brothers, they were very much gladdened, and they began to chant lilz holy name of the Lord, ” Hari!
