CC Ādi 5.133 - 142

Speaker: Ramananda dasa

Text 133:
Therefore Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu has exhibited to everyone all the pastimes of all the various incarnations.
Text 134:
Thus Lord Nityānanda has unlimited incarnations. In transcendental emotion He calls Himself a servant of Lord Caitanya.
Text 135:
Sometimes He serves Lord Caitanya as His guru, sometimes as His friend and sometimes as His servant, just as Lord Balarāma played with Lord Kṛṣṇa in these three different moods in Vraja.
Text 136:
Playing like a bull, Lord Balarāma fights with Kṛṣṇa head to head. And sometimes Lord Kṛṣṇa massages the feet of Lord Balarāma.
Text 137:
He considers Himself a servant and knows Kṛṣṇa to be His master. Thus He regards Himself as a fragment of His plenary portion.
Text 138:
“Acting just like ordinary boys, They played like roaring bulls as They fought each other, and They imitated the calls of various animals.”
Text 139:
“Sometimes when Lord Kṛṣṇa’s elder brother, Lord Balarāma, felt tired after playing and lay His head on the lap of a cowherd boy, Lord Kṛṣṇa Himself served Him by massaging His feet.”
Text 140:
“Who is this mystic power, and where has she come from? Is she a demigod or a demoness? She must be the illusory energy of My master, Lord Kṛṣṇa, for who else can bewilder Me?”
Text 141:
“What is the value of a throne to Lord Kṛṣṇa? The masters of the various planetary systems accept the dust of His lotus feet on their crowned heads. That dust makes the holy places sacred, and even Lord Brahmā, Lord Śiva, Lakṣmī and I Myself, who are all portions of His plenary portion, eternally carry that dust on our heads.”
Text 142:
Lord Kṛṣṇa alone is the supreme controller, and all others are His servants. They dance as He makes them do so.
