Kanai Natsala

Kanai Natsala

“Kotha gale paimu se murolibadon!”

Bolite charoye shwas, koroye krondon. 175

Sthir hoi’ prabhu sab-aptagon-stahne,

Prabhu bole,-“mor dukh knro nivedane”.176

Prabhu bole,-“mor se dukher anto nai

Paiao harainu se jibon-kanai”.177

Sabar santosh hoilo rahosya shunite,

Shradhwa kori, sobe bosilen charivite.178

“Kanahir natshala-name ek gram,

Gaya hoyite asite dekhinu sei sthan.179

Tamal-shyamal ek balak sundar,

Nawagunja-sohit kuntal monohar.180

Bichitra mayorpuchha shove tadupari,

Jhalmal monigan,- lokhite na pari.181

Hatete mohon banshi porom sundar.

Charone nupur shove ati-monohar.182

Nil-stambha jini’ vuje ratna-alognkar,

Sribatsa-koustav bakshe shove manihar.183

Ki kohibo se pit-dhatir poridhan,

Maker-kundal shove komol-nayan.184

Amar samipe aila hasite-hasite,

Ama’ alingia palaile kon vite.”185

At other times He cried out, releasing heavy sighs, "Where can I find the sweet face of My Lord that always (flowers the fruit?)" Then gradually becoming still, the Lord revealed the pain in His heart saying, "Please be merciful and hear My pitiful condition. There is no end to My sorrows. Although I have found My life, My dear Krishna, Now I have lost Him."

The devotees were greatly pleased to hear these words that explained the mystery and increased their faith and reverence. Sitting around the Lord, they all listened as the Lord continued, "While returning from Gaya I came to a village named Kanai Natsala. There I saw a young boy of exquisite beauty. He had a glowing dark complexion, the color of the bark of the tamala tree. His curly hair was decorated with wild flowers. He wore a beautiful crown with a peacock feather stuck in it. All His jewelry and gems shined brightly like the sun. It is impossible for Me to describe the beauty of the delicately ornamented flute He held in His hand which captured everyone's heart, and His fine lotus feet which looked so attractive with ankle bells softly touching His skin. His graceful, strong arms were more formidable than a blue pillar, and were covered with sparkling jewels and gems. From His neck hung the famous kaustubha jewel, and His chest was marked with the srivatsa. How will I describe to you the beauty of His yellow golden silken dhoti, His dangling fish earrings, and His lazy lotus petal eyes? Smiling sweetly, He approached Me and embraced Me; then suddenly He ran away, fearing what I do not know."

Ramkeli village in Malda District of West Bengal, near the India-Bangladesh International border & the old capital of Gaur-Bangla(in the time of Muslim emperor of Nabab Husain Saha), about five miles from the Malda railway station. It is famous as the temporary home of Sri ChaitanyaMahaprabhu’s three great followers Srila Rupa Goswami, Srila Anupam Goswami & Srila Jiva Goswami. Sri Sri Mahaprabhu stayed here with Sriman Nitya Nanda Mahaprabhu a few days on his way to Brindaban. The tamal tree under which Sri Chaitanya Mhaprabhu is said to have meditated is still held sacred. A small temple built under this tree enshrines Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's footprints on stone. There are eight sacred tanks surrounding the temple.

Every year a festival is celebrated on the Jaishthya Sankranti, to commemorate the arrival of Sri Chaitanya. A fair is conducted for one week.

Ramkeli is also the home of many famous devotees, including Sri Nrishinga Acharya Prabhu, the son of Srila Advaita Acharya Prabhu.
