Vanisource - the complete essence of Vedic knowledge

CC Madhya 13.14 (1975)

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


mahāprabhu 'maṇimā' 'maṇimā' kare dhvani
nānā-vādya-kolāhale kichui nā śuni


mahāprabhu—Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; maṇimā—Maṇimā; maṇimā—Maṇimā; kare—makes; dhvani—the sound; nānā—various; vādya—of musical instruments; kolāhale—by the tumultuous sound; kichui—anything; nā—not; śuni—can hear.


While the Lord was transported from the throne to the car, tumultuous sounds were made on various musical instruments. Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu was chanting "Maṇimā Maṇimā," but He could not be heard.


The word maṇimā is used to address a respectable person in Orissa. Lord Jagannātha was being respectfully addressed by Śrī Caitanya in this way.
