(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Mayapur, November 2011) Lecture – Caitanya-caritamrta part 8
In the Adi Lila, it is said that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu appeared under the astrological sign of Leo – the rising sign of Leo. So that is the Vedic astrology of the rising sign – the ascendant Leo. He was like a lion and had shoulders like a lion. He was roaring like a lion. He would enter the heart of all the conditioned souls, like a lion and drive out the material desires that were big as elephants!
So that’s quite good, since it points out how big the material desires are, and how strong they are, just like the elephants who are big and strong! Those material desires that are very big and very strong, they will be driven out by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu!
