We were at house of Saranga Murari as well as that of Vasudeva Datta. HH Gopal Krishna Maharaja spoke to the devotees about the uncommon character of Saranga Murari by telling the pastime of his first initiated disciple. Saranga Thakur when asked by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu to accept disciples ,replied: " But my Lord, I don't see anybody who is qualified for initiation". In answer to this Lord Gauranga said: " When you initiate them they will become qualified" . Thus with firm faith Saranga initiated the first person he met the next morning which happened to be a dead body. He spoke the diksha mantra into his ear and by the grace of Krishna the boy came back to life. Maharaja also revealed to us that Vasudeva Datta is an incarnation of Prahlad Maharaja.
