1967 Conversations and Morning Walks

Yes. He was seen on the seashore within the net after being caught by the fisherman. And when He fell on the sea, that is not seen. You can make a scene that Caitanya Mahāprabhu is coming, Hare Kṛṣṇa, Hare...and fall down in the sea. Then He was caught by the net of the fisherman.


Discourse on Lord Caitanya Play Between Srila Prabhupada and Hayagriva -- April 5-6, 1967, San Francisco:

Hayagrīva: Now the second scene here, this is when Caitanya on the seashore, this is when He would walk around saying: "Where is Kṛṣṇa?" Is that right? "Where is Kṛṣṇa" He would . . .

Prabhupāda: Yes. He was seen on the seashore within the net after being caught by the fisherman. And when He fell on the sea, that is not seen. You can make a scene that Caitanya Mahāprabhu is coming, "Hare Kṛṣṇa, Hare . . . " and fall down in the sea. Then He was caught by the net of the fisherman.

Hayagrīva: And what is the second scene?

Prabhupāda: This is the second scene I have described. First scene and second scene.

Hayagrīva: The first scene also.

Prabhupāda: They are all. First, second scene, they are all ecstasies. Yes. And the third scene, similarly . . .

Hayagrīva: Wait. He must be around . . . in His forties now. This is in His forties.

Prabhupāda: Yes. These ecstasies were going on daily from His age thirtieth to forty-eighth year.

Hayagrīva: Thirty-eight to forty-eight, every day.

Prabhupāda: Not thirty-eight. Thirtieth.

Hayagrīva: Thirtieth.

Prabhupāda: Thirty to forty-eight. Eighteen years. Sometimes He was chanting, sometimes He was falling, sometimes He was going there. That was His business all eighteen years.

Hayagrīva: Every day?

Prabhupāda: Every day. Especially at night. (Hayagrīva laughs) Simply . . . the whole program was the whole day He would see the visitors. And so many visitors were coming. In the evening He'll chant and dance in the temple. And at night, instead of sleeping He was doing all these . . . sometimes falling in the sea, sometimes here, sometimes there. That was His business.

Hayagrīva: I see. Now this third scene.

Prabhupāda: Third scene. In the same way, one day when He was forty-eight years old, He entered the Jagannātha temple . . .

Hayagrīva: And disappeared.

Prabhupāda: Disappeared. His friends outside waited and waited, and He never come back. That's all.

Hayagrīva: They never knew what happened to Him. They never found . . .

Prabhupāda: Yes, they knew that He was Kṛṣṇa; He has merged into the existence of Jagannātha.

Hayagrīva: He left. Took off. All right. Now no more. That's the end.

Prabhupāda: Now you write and I shall make some addition or alteration when you write. This is the synopsis and framework. Now you can proceed. (end)
