Radharani’s Dream

Once Srimati Radharani woke up with a start.

She was next to Sri Krishna on the flower bedecked pastimes bed – and looked
with deep questioning eyes into His eyes:

“O My beloved,” She asked, “I dreamt of someone extraordinarily – I am
ashamed to admit, He stole My heart. Could it be You, of whom I dreamt – but
in a different form? It must be!”

Krishna was smiling: “Tell Me more.”

“I beheld a golden youth. Sometimes He was bursting into tears, calling out
“O Krishna, o Krishna!”

At other times He would sigh and call: “O Radha! Mistress of My heart, where
are You?”

Then He fell on the ground loosing every little bit of patience left in Him
as He drowned His associates in waves of lamentation. It seemed the earth
was splitting. Now I want to know, is this golden brahmana You, My beloved
Sri Krishna? Or is He Me, for He is always chanting “Krishna, Krishna” while
shedding tears of ecstasy?”

After Sri Krishna had listened to more details of Radharani’s dream He
replied mysteriously, “My most beloved Radha. In the past I have shown You
so many forms of Mine, such as Narayana as well as Nrsimha, Varaha, Kurma,
etc.
Never were You so astonished by seeing them and You were also never
bewildered.”

Then Krishna happily paused and gave an order to the Kaustubha jewel which
was hanging on His chest: “Jewel, show My beloved Her dream and give Her an
answer.”

At this moment the jewel began to light up and spread his effulgence more
and more until not a single place was not lit. And then it projected a scene
of all the pastimes that Srimati Radharani had seen in Her dream with great
detail. In this transcendental film Krishna revealed through his jewel
servant that in fact Radha and Krishna had united to become that form of
Gauranga who had appeared to taste Their loving ecstasies and then
distribute that same love through His ecstatic chanting and dancing.

After Radharani had seen this overwhelming glimpse into the nature of Lord
Gauranga, She remembered a prophecy of Garga Risi who had said during the
name giving ceremony of Krishna that in the future Lord Krishna would appear
in a golden form. Thus, Garga Muni had indicated this most confidential of
all the incarnations who continuously drowns the entire universe in rivers
of ecstatic love.

My dear devotees, please know that the dream of Radha and the projection of
Krishna are the truth. For the Lord there is no difference between dreams
and the reality or projections and the reality. Please quickly drink from
the cup of faith in Lord Caitanya and empty it totally. Then the Lord will
cast His merciful glance upon you and you will be absorbed in Gaura bhakti.
At that time your heart will be flooded with the beautiful golden rays
shining from the toenails of Srimati Radharani – that means you will find
shelter under the lotus feet of Radha.

How to Obtain the Merciful Gift of Lord Gauranga

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu distributed the treasure of divine love primarily
through the chanting of His Holy Names. It is said He garlanded the whole
world with the Holy Names, strung on the thread of prema. That means anyone
who wishes to be garlanded by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu must accept His gift
of chanting the Holy Name with affection. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu will give
this garland to almost anyone. The only exception is a person who willfully
commits offences against His devotees. In Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s own words:
“I turn My face away from someone who offends My devotees.”

Let us today pray to become full of Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s mercy and let us
also turn our face away – away from vaisnava apraradha.
