Sri Caitanya Caritamrta and Sri Caitanya Caritamrta

Recommended Posts

Sorry above was meant to read Sri Caitanya Caritamrta and Caitanya Bhagavat.

Is anyone here acquainted with these texts?

I am looking for a sakhi within these that describes Guru Nanak Dev Ji apparently dancing in kirtan with Caitanya Mahaprabhu...

I imagine there could be. Its a big granth in braj no trabslated into english. I've flicked through only to be amused by how badly those Gaudiya vaishnavs feel the heat of Vallabhacarya (who in Vraj mandal itself was only down the road in Gokul), he's potrayed as a hankari who needed Chaitanya's guidance to get it right. i.e. its unlikely this happened, but is a nice way of telling gaudiya types to keep well away from the similar but different pushti types. When I'm back in the UK i'll have a look.

Here it is to save anyone who is interested searching through the article:

Srinibasaye Viswambhara

Kirtan madyare vihar

Nanak Saranga ye dui

Rupa Sanatana duibhai

Jagai Madhai ekatra

Kirtan Karanti Nritya

It means that Srinibasa and

Viswambhara were found in the Kirtan. Both

'Nanak' and 'Saranga' Rupa Sanatan brothers

and 'Jagai' 'Madhai' were also there in Kirtan.

Kirtan tradition in Puri is said to consist of joint singing and dancing.....
