Mahaprabhu’s Baithaka

This is the very spot on the sacred banks of Syama-kunda, where Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu sat in contemplation under a tamala tree, just before discovering Radha-kunda and Syama-kunda. This place is also known as Tamala-tala after the sacred tamala tree that grows here. The present tree is an offshoot of the original one under which Lord Chaitanya sat. The ghata nearby is known as Tamala-tala-ghata. Within the red granite shrine is the impression of Lord Chaitanya’s lotus footprints. We can understand why the Lord chose this spot to sit down because of the wonderful view it affords of the two sacred kundas.

It is not surprising that the Vedic scriptures inform us that Lord Chaitanya is the most munificient incarnation of God. By revealing the hidden location of both Radha-kunda and Syama-kunda, the Lord has given His devotees, and the world, the unique gift of the most sacred of all the sacred tirthas within creation. Generation after generation of Vaisnavas the world-over, can come here to Radha-kunda and simply by anointing their heads with the sacred waters of these transcendental lakes, achieve the greatest benediction of divine love, which is nondifferent from Radha Kunda.
