CC daily 17 – CCM 58-60 – Love invokes auspiciousness for the all-auspicious one

Published on Feb 10, 2015

CC Madhya 4.58
bhoga-samagri aila sandesadi yata
nana upahara, taha kahite pari kata

Various foods and sweetmeats, as well as other kinds of presentations, were brought there. I am unable to describe all these.

CC Madhya 4.59
tulasi adi, puspa, vastra aila aneka
apane madhava-puri kaila abhiseka

The villagers brought a large quantity of tulasi leaves, flowers and various kinds of garments. Then Sri Madhavendra Puri personally began the abhiseka [bathing ceremony].
In the Hari-bhakti-vilasa (sixth vilasa, verse 30) it is stated that the Deity should be bathed in water mixed with yogurt and milk, accompanied by the sounds of conchshells, bells and other instruments and the chanting of the mantra om bhagavate vasudevaya namah, as well as the chanting of the Brahma-samhita verses beginning cintamani-prakara-sadmasu kalpa-vrksa-laksavrtesu surabhir abhipalayantam.

CC Madhya 4.60
amangala dura kari’ karaila snana
bahu taila diya kaila sri-anga cikkana

After all inauspicious things were driven away by the chanting of the mantra, the Deity’s bathing ceremony started. First the Deity was massaged with a large quantity of oil, so that His body became very glossy.
