At a lovely spot, Shri Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya made his camp. Here Shri Mahaprabhuji told Damala, “From the navel of Shri Pdmanabhaji who lies resting on the serpent god, Braham the creator emerged on the stem of a lotus, “After saying that, Lord Padmanabhaji arrived and the guru greeted Him with folded hands.
The next day, Shri Mahaprabhuji proceeded to Padmanabhaji’s temple and made the Lord’s divine worship. The Lord insisted that Shri Mahaprabhu partake of the offering with Him. When the head Priest witnessed that, he had a vision of the eternal realm of Vrindavan and later requested to become Shri Mahaprabhuji’s disciples. The Guru advised, “ You have the blessing of Lord Padmanabhaji, through his worship everything will come to you.” But when the Lord requested, “He is a divine soul, and deserves to be made your disciple.” Shri Mahprabhuji initiated him. Later, taking the Lord’s permission, Shri Mahaprabhu continued on this pilgrimage to spread the Path of Grace.
