CC Madhya 1.126
- sabe mili’ yukti kari’ kīrtana ārambhila
- kīrtana-āveśe prabhura mana sthira haila
sabe mili’—meeting all together; yukti kari’—after due consideration; kīrtana—congregational chanting of the holy name; ārambhila—began; kīrtana-āveśe—in the ecstasy of kīrtana; prabhura—of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu; mana—the mind; sthira—pacified; haila—became.
After due consideration, all the devotees began chanting the holy name congregationally. Lord Caitanya’s mind was thus pacified by the ecstasy of the chanting.
Being absolute in all circumstances, Lord Jagannātha’s person, form, picture and kīrtana are all identical. Therefore when Caitanya Mahāprabhu heard the chanting of the holy name of the Lord, He was pacified. Previously, He had been feeling very morose due to separation from Jagannātha. The conclusion is that whenever a kīrtana of pure devotees takes place, the Lord is immediately present. By chanting the holy names of the Lord, we associate with the Lord personally.
