So one evening, mother Saci put her Deities of Krsna-Balarama to rest. Every day she was worshipping Krsna and Balarama, she put Them to rest with different mantras and so on as appropriately is done. And she lay down to sleep herself and then, that night, she had a dream and she was dreaming of the Deities. So it was very nice.

Then suddenly, suddenly in the dream Nimai and Nitai appeared and They started fighting with the Deities over the offering! And it was a big fight! And They said to Krsna-Balarama, “Get out of here! Get out of here! Because, this is Our Yuga! This offering is Ours!” So it was a big fight- especially between Nityananda and Balarama- and eventually Nityananda won and They had the offerings! So mother Saci woke up and she was really shocked, “What is going on? What is going on? How is it Nimai, my son, fighting with the Deities!” So anyway, as time moved on she said, “Oh, it was just a dream- strange dream though, very strange.” So you know how it is with the dreams, during the day it sort of disappears in the background and you don’t think of it anymore and you almost forget it. So that happened with mother Saci and just that day, that day both Gaura Nitai came for lunch. So mother Saci offered the lunch to Them at two little tables and two little seats and served Them Their tallies, and just then as she was serving Them, suddenly she had a flash back and remembered the dream! And suddenly she realized that Gaura-Nitai were non-different from Krsna-Balarama and then she fainted. And forgot it again of course!

Like that the Supreme Lord is playing, playing with His devotees. This is actually the true reality- the pastimes of the Supreme Lord. We somehow or other must understand, that is real. Just like here in the temple, you can look up to the ceiling and you can see the pictures of Krsna. And then you look a little bit down and you look out of the window and you might think, as we are looking out of the window, that’s reality, and you look up at the roof and you think those are the pictures. No. On the roof, that’s reality, and that out of the window, that is a picture, that is a picture, that’s just a picture. That is just some illusion out there, that is not real, that’s just a picture. But upwards on the painting, that is real, that is reality!
