All space around us begins to sound with the Mahamantra — Chaitanya has come to us.
Hare Krishna, hare Krishna!
Krishna, Krishna — hare, hare!
Hare Rama, hare Rama!
Rama, Rama — hare, hare!
“Chaitanya, tell us please how it happened that You began to praise Krishna with these words?”
“‘Hare Krishna’ is not just words for Me. It is My Beingness, the Beingness of the One Who cognized the fullness of Mergence with the Lord!
“Guided in life by My infinite Love for Krishna, I attained Enlightenment — and then the entire manifested world began to shine for Me with the Light of Krishna, the entire world changed in one instant and turned into infinite and various Manifestations of My beloved Friend and Lord!”
… Chaitanya whirls in His dance of love, His Arms, like soft waves, embrace the space around — and the space becomes filled with goldish Light…
“Everything is Krishna! All of His Countenances are beautiful! Everything existing shines from within with His Amber Light! Krishna! He is everywhere! He is around and inside Chaitanya. Wherever I may look at — He is there…
“Thus I live since that moment — in infinite ecstasy of recognizing Him in every new appearance. The sun rises — how fresh and beautiful the morning countenance of My Beloved! Stars shine at night — they are the eyes of My beloved Friend and Lord looking at Me from the sky! Whether I see a flight of a moth, or a flower dancing in the wind, whether I meet a stranger on the road — they are numerous magnificent faces of My Beloved!
“Hare Krishna, hare Krishna!
“Krishna, Krishna — hare, hare!
“From every petal of a rose, from every mango fruit — His Eyes look at Me from everywhere… Rustling of the wind in the grass, songs of birds, whisper of sea waves, laugh and hubbub of people — it is Krishna talking to Me!
“Only He exists for Me! My eyes see Him alone in everything!
“Hare Rama, hare Rama!
“Rama, Rama — hare, hare!
“All space is pervaded with Krishna, all space sounds as Mahamantra! In Mahamantra is all My love for Krishna, all My submergence and disappearance in Him, the ecstasy of Mergence!
“Wherever I look — Hare Krishna, hare Krishna! Krishna, Krishna — hare, hare!
“Whomever I meet — Hare Rama, hare Rama! Rama, Rama — hare, hare!”
