Cc. Adi 3.30-31
caitanya-siàhera navadvépe avatära
siàha-gréva, siàha-vérya, siàhera huìkära
Thus the lionlike Lord Caitanya has appeared in
Navadvépa. He has the
shoulders of a lion, the powers of a lion, and the loud voice of a lion.
sei siàha vasuk jévera hådaya-kandare
kalmaña-dvirada näçe yäìhära huìkäre
May that lion be seated in the core of the heart
of every living being.
Thus with His resounding roar may He drive away one’s elephantine vices.
CB Adi-khandha 119
madhya-khaëòe, vidita hailä gaura-siàha
cinilena yata saba caraëera bhåìga
In the Madhya-khanda the lionlike Lord Gauräìga
reveals Himself so that the
devotees, who are like bees at His lotus feet, are able to recognize Him.
Gauran-nrsimha Dhyana (Chand Kazi's darshana) Cc. Adi 17.178-186
The Kazi said, “When I went to the Hindu’s house,
broke the drum and
forbade the performance of congregational chanting, in my dreams that very
night I saw a greatly fearful lion, roaring very loudly, His body like a
human being’s and His face like a lion’s.
“While I was asleep, the lion jumped on my chest,
laughing fiercely and
gnashing His teeth.
“Placing its nails on my chest, the lion said in
a grave voice, ‘I shall
immediately bifurcate your chest as you broke the mådaìga drum!
"You have forbidden the performance of My congregational
Therefore I must destroy you!’ Being very much afraid of Him, I closed my
eyes and trembled.
“Seeing me so afraid, the lion said, ‘I have defeated
you just to teach you
a lesson, but I must be merciful to you.
“On that day you did not create a very great disturbance.
Therefore I have
excused you and not taken your life.
“But if you perform such activities again, I shall
not be tolerant. At that
time I shall kill you, your entire family and all the meat-eaters.’
“After saying this, the lion left, but I was very
much afraid of Him. Just
see the marks of His nails on my heart!”
