In the dense forest of Kapilban at Kapilashram, Shri Mahaprabhuji spent six months finishing the third canto of his Subodhani. At that isolate place, inhabited by ferocious animals, Mahaprabhuji was accompanied by only five disciples.
Once Krishnadas prepared a wonderful dish of maize for Mahaprabhuji who pleased with the preperation granted him a boon. Another time just after sunrise, Shri Mahaprabhuji bathed in the ocean and returned to his seat to ponder over Shri Krishna’s command to command to him to uplift divine souls. He thought, “Souls are ignorant by nature; only by making their connection with the Godhead can their ignorance be removed, then they an be qualified for the Lord’s grace that the soul receives devotion. It is said that After the demoness Putana’s ignorance was removed, only a divine fragrance remained. “Shri Krishna removes the ignorance connected with the body, sense, inner witness, breath and forgetfulness of our true form. When these five types of ignorance are removed, connection to the Supreme is achieved. This can all be realized by resorting to the lotus feet of Lord Krishna.”
Once when Shri Mahaprabhuji went to the top of a seall mountain with his five disciples, while they were sitting there, a divine smell emerged from the guru’s feet. Snakes and other ignorant beings who came into contact with that divine aroma dropped their bodies and the fragrance of kusturi emerged from their bodies. They all achieve human birth and became qualified for the Lord’s personal service. His disciples seeing this divine pastime were all very astonished.
