Srila Raghunath Das Goswami Sochaka

By Sri Radha Vallabha Prabhu

 

 

yabe rupa-sanatana,vraje gela dui jana,
sunaite raghunatha-dasa
nija-rajya adhikara,indrasama-sukha yaba,
chhadiya chalila prabhu-pasa [1]

When Raghunath Das heard that Rupa and Sanatan had gone to Vrindavan, he gave up all rights to his estate and the comforts of a life like that of Indra, and went to Mahaprabhu.

uthi' ratre nisa-bhage,duyare prahari jage,
patha chhadi' vipathe gamana
ksudha trsna nahi paya,manodvege chali yaya,
sada chinte chaitanya charana [2]

He woke up in the middle of the night and in the dead of night left through the back door not to wake the guards up. He left the road and walked without following any road. He felt no hunger, no thirst—he only kept on walking anxiously, always thinking of the lotus feet of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.

eka-dina eka grame,sandhya-kale govathane,
'ha chaitanya' baliya vasila
eka gopa dugdha dila,taha khiye visramila,
sei ratre tathai kahila [3]

One day at noon time he came to a cow shed in some village and sat there, saying again and again, "O Chaitanya!" A cowherd brought him some milk. Raghunath drank it and took some rest. He spent the night there.

ye anga palanka vine,bhumi-sayya nahi jane,
se anga bathane gari ya
yei ghora gola vine,pada srama nahi jane,
kanteke hantaye sei paya [4]

He whose body had never rested on anything except a luxury bed, had never lain on the ground, is now lying splayed out in a cowshed. The feet of he who has never known the touch of the ground and always ridden a horse, are full of thorns now after the long walk.

yinho bela danda chari,tola jale snana kari,
sad-rasa karite bhojana
ebe yadi kichhu pana,sandhya-kale taha khana,
na paile amani sayana [5]

He who was used to bathing in specially kept for him water for four dandas (one danda is twenty-four minutes), who enjoyed preparations of six different tastes (sweet, astringent, sour, salty, pungent, and bitter), now ate something at noon if he got anything, and if not, went to sleep without any food.

bara dinera pata yana,tina sandhya anna khana,
pravesila nilachala-pure
dekhiya se sri-mandira,du-nayane vahe nira,
'ha chaitanya' bale uchchaihsvare [6]

He had walked like this for twelve days, and during this time he ate only three times at noon time, when he finally entered the City of Nilachal (Puri). Seeing the Jagannath temple, tears rolled from his eyes and he cried, "O Chaitanya!"

e radha-vallabha-dasa,mane kari abhilasa,
kotha mora raghunatha-dasa
tanhara prasanga-matra,pulakita haya gatra,
tanra pada-renu kari asa [7]

This Radha Vallabha Das only hankers in his heart to know, "Where is my Radhunath Das?" Just by mentioning him, his body is thrilled with rapture; the dust of the lotus feet of this Raghunath Das is all he prays for.

Sri Vishva Vaishnava Raja-Sabha
'Gurudev told me, 'The day after Gaura Purnima, you will sit together at Vishva Vaishnava Raja-Sabha,' and it is my duty to do that. We have come here to be together, and everyone can speak their own language, if it can be translated into English and Bengali, that is good for the mission.'

 

      

Great devotees are very unhappy when they waste even one minute of their time on something that does not have to do with their Guru, with the service to Krishna...
