Taking on my head as my own property the lotus feet of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Nityananda Prabhu, Acarya Advaitacandra, Svarupa Damodara, Rupa Gosvami and Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, I, Krsnadasa Kaviraja Gosvami, have thus described the advent of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Nityananda, Advaita Prabhu, Svarupa Damodara, Rupa Gosvami, Raghunatha dasa and their followers are all accepted by Krsnadasa Kaviraja Gosvami. Anyone who follows in the footsteps of Kaviraja Gosvami also accepts the lotus feet of the above-mentioned lords as his personal property. For a materialistic person, material wealth and opulence are only illusory. Actually they are not possessions but entanglements because by enjoying the material world a conditioned soul becomes more and more entangled by incurring debts for his present enjoyment. Unfortunately, a conditioned soul considers property for which he is in debt to be his own, and he is very busy acquiring such property. But a devotee considers such property not real property but simply an entanglement in the material world. If Lord Krsna is very much pleased with a devotee, He takes away his material property, as stated in the Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.88.8), where Lord Krsna says, yasyaham anugrhnami harisye tad-dhanam sanaih. "To show special favor to a devotee, I take away all his material property." Similarly, Narottama dasa Thakura says:
dhana mora nityananda, radha-krsna-sricarana
sei mora pranadhana
"My real riches are Nityananda Prabhu and the lotus feet of Sri Radha and Krsna." He further prays, "O Lord, kindly give me this opulence. I do not want anything but Your lotus feet as my property." Srila Narottama dasa Thakura has sung in many places that his real property is the lotus feet of Radha and Krsna. Unfortunately we are interested in unreal property and are neglecting our real property (adhane yatana kari' dhana teyaginu).
Sometimes smartas consider Raghunatha dasa Gosvami a sudra. But Krsnadasa Kaviraja Gosvami here especially mentions svarupa-rupa-raghunathadasa. Therefore one who considers the lotus feet of Raghunatha dasa to be transcendental to all divisions of the caste system enjoys the riches of actual spiritual bliss.
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports to Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila, Thirteenth Chapter, describing the advent of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
