About this item
One day, while wandering near the sea at Jagannatha Puri, Lord Caitanya went into the ecstasy of love of Godhead and mistook the sea for the Yamuna River. Unseen by others, He ran swiftly and jumped into the water. There He lost consciousness and forgot where He was. Sometimes he sank beneath the waves, and sometimes He floated above them, just like a piece of dry wood. All the while He was absorbed in remembering how Lord Krishna had enjoyed pastimes with the gopis in the Yamuna River.
