One day people suddenly came to Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and informed Him, "Gopinatha Pattanayaka, the son of Bhavananda Raya, has been condemned to death by the bada-jana, the eldest son of the King, and has been raised on the canga.
The canga was a device for killing a condemned person. It consisted of a raised platform on which the condemned was made to stand. Underneath the platform, there were stationary upright swords. The condemned man would be pushed down onto the swords, and in this way he would die. For some reason, Gopinatha Pattanayaka had been condemned to death and had therefore been raised upon the canga.
