In fact, in Lord Caitanya’s pastimes are many… even in different parts of the world, He sometimes appears. Sometimes visibly and sometimes invisibly, and the devotees feel spiritual inspiration by His presence, but then, Lord Caitanya… How He was discovered as actually Krishna, Himself by the devotees.
After they were huddling and doing kirtan, they knew that He was… He’s a great devotee, and He was inspiration at everyone, and they could see that His love and devotion was so intense that it far outstretched anyones, so then immediately… in all humility, they immediately were coming around Him and they were even though they were an older position, and He would treat them very respectfully, but they knew that He was the one who could actually lead the whole sankirtana movement, you see. But they didn’t exactly understand that He was Krishna. That idea, few had, that He must… He can’t be some oridinary person.
