At panchvati at the Nasika Tap forest Shri Mahaprabhu Vallabhachrya said to Damala, “Lord Rama stayed in this forest and this is where Sita was stolen away by Ravana. I will make a Bhagavata saptah here and establish the path of Dvotion.”
Followers of the Mayavada came to discuss the meaning of the scripture with Shri Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya and within one hour revealed to them the import of the Vedas and they requested to be initiated. After bathing in the Ganges, Shri Mahaprabhuji gave them the sacred tulsi necklace and Krishna mantra. From here, he proceeded south.
