panca_tattvaThere is a story in the Caitanya Bhagavat of Gadhadara Das. Gadhadara Das, one day went to the residence of the Chand Kazi. He stood in the courtyard and called out, “Kazi! Kazi, where are you? Kazi, chant! Chant the holy name of Krsna! Chant the holy name, Kazi!”

The Kazi knew Gadhadara very well. They actually had a good relationship, so he was not too perturbed. He came to pacify Gadharara and said, ”Don’t worry, Gadhadara. No need to make so much of noise. I’ll chant Hare Krsna tomorrow.”

Gadadara began to jump up and down. He said, ‘Why tomorrow? You already did it today! You already did it today!”

That was enough for Gadadara to experience great ecstasy, because he had that faith that if this Kazi chants Hare Krsna just once, then everything auspicious will happen.
