We visited three islands: Jahnudvipa, Modadrumadvipa and Rudradvipa. Before breakfast we were at Mamgachi, at Vrndavana das Thakur’s birthplace. He is the author of Caitanya Bhagavata, the first authorized biography of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. In that place we sang Nitai Pada Kamala’s song. Sri Nityananda prabhu is the guru of Vrndavana das Thakur. HH Jayapataka Swami Maharaj came to visit us by boat (!) at Nidaya Gat. From the very boat he spoke about Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s lila in the Ganga and how he met Lakshmi Priya, his first wife. After Maharaja’s katha we headed to Belpukur.
