TEXT 167
ei-mata sacidevi vatsalye vihvala
harsa-bhaya-dainya-bhave ha-ila vikala
ei-mata—in this way; saci-devi—mother Saci; vatsalye—in parental affection; vihvala—overwhelmed; harsa—happiness; bhaya—fear; dainya-bhave—and in humility; ha-ila—became; vikala—transformed.
When mother Saci was thus overwhelmed in parental love for Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, she became transformed with happiness, fear and humility, as well as bodily symptoms.
These verses indicate that mother Saci, born in the family of Nilambara Cakravarti, used to worship Lord Visnu even before her marriage. As stated in Bhagavad-gita (6:41):
prapya punya-krtam lokan
usitva sasvatih samah
sucinam srimatam gehe
yoga-bhrasto 'bhijayate
"The unsuccessful yogi, after many, many years of enjoyment on the planets of the pious living entities, is born into a family of righteous people, or into a family of rich aristocracy." Mother Saci, a nitya-siddha living entity, is an incarnation of mother Yasoda. She appeared in the house of Nilambara Cakravarti and was everlastingly engaged in the service of Lord Visnu. Later she directly had as her child Lord Visnu, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, and she served Him from the day of His appearance. This is the position of nitya-siddha associates. Sri Narottama dasa Thakura therefore sings:
gaurangera sangi-gane nitya-siddha kari mane. Every devotee should know that all the associates of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu-His family members, friends and other associates-were all nitya-siddhas. A nitya-siddha never forgets the service of the Lord. He is always engaged, even from childhood, in worshiping the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
