(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Durban, South Africa, 8 March 2019, Kendra Namahatta

In Navadvipa, before taking sannyasa, Lord Caitanya was known by two names, either Nimai or Visvambhara. Visvambhara was His former name, meaning the maintainer of the entire universe. 

It is said in the Caitanya Caritamrta: He thought, “How can I be called Visvambhara, the maintainer of the whole universe, unless I give people entire happiness?” How can you say you are maintaining someone if you are only feeding them, if you are only providing them a roof over their head, if you are only providing them clothes? How can you say you are maintaining them?

One can only say they are maintaining someone when that person is completely happy. But that is not so simple. Who is completely happy?

The only way someone will be completely happy is when we give them love of God! Therefore Vishvambara is the one who gives love of God to all.
