One day during His tour in South India, Lord Chaitanya went to have darshana of Shri Ranganath in Siddhavata. There He met a brahmana who invited Him to his house. The brahmana was a Devotee of Shri Rama and continually chanted the name of Rama. From his house, Lord Chaitanya went for darshana of Shri Skanda deva in Skanda kshetra and Shri Trivikrama deva, then again returned to the house of the brahmana in Siddhavata. This time He found that the brahmana was chanting the name of Krishna. When Mahaprabhu asked the reason for this, the brahmana replied, "The Holy Name of Krishna has come to my lips after seeing You. Now I know that You are Krishna Himself." Saying this he began to cry, holding the feet of the Lord, who showered His blessings upon him.
CC Madhya 9.17: Upon seeing the Ahovala-Nrsimha Deity, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu offered many prayers unto the Lord. He then went to Siddhavata, where He saw the Deity of Ramachandra, the Lord of Sitadevi.
CC Madhya 9.18: Upon seeing the Deity of Lord Ramachandra, the descendant of King Raghu, the Lord offered His prayers and obeisances. Then a brahmana invited the Lord to take lunch.
CC Madhya 9.19: That brahmana constantly chanted the Holy Name of Ramachandra. Indeed, but for chanting Lord Ramachandra’s Holy Name, that brahmana did not speak a word.
CC Madhya 9.20: That day, Lord Chaitanya remained there and accepted Prasadam at his house. After bestowing mercy upon him in this way, the Lord proceeded ahead.
CC Madhya 9.21: At the holy place known as Skanda-kshetra, Lord Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu visited the Temple of Skanda. From there He went to Trimatha, where He saw the Vishnu Deity Trivikrama.
CC Madhya 9.22: After visiting the Temple of Trivikrama, the Lord returned to Siddhavata, where He again visited the house of the brahmana, who was now constantly chanting the Hare Krishna Maha-mantra.
CC Madhya 9.23: After finishing His lunch there, Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu asked the brahmana, “My dear friend, kindly tell Me what your position is now.
CC Madhya 9.24: “Formerly you were constantly chanting the Holy Name of Lord Rama. Why are you now constantly chanting the Holy Name of Krishna?”
CC Madhya 9.25: The brahmana replied, “This is all due to Your influence, Sir. After seeing You, I have lost my lifelong practice.
CC Madhya 9.26: “From my childhood I have been chanting the Holy Name of Lord Ramachandra, but upon seeing You I chanted the Holy Name of Lord Krishna just once.
CC Madhya 9.27: “Since then, the Holy Name of Krishna has been tightly fixed upon my tongue. Indeed, since I have been chanting the Holy Name of Krishna, the Holy Name of Lord Ramachandra has gone far away.
CC Madhya 9.28: “From my childhood I have been collecting the glories of the Holy Name from revealed scriptures.
CC Madhya 9.29: “The Supreme Absolute Truth is called Rama because the transcendentalists take pleasure in the unlimited true pleasure of spiritual existence.’
CC Madhya 9.30: “‘The word “krish” is the attractive feature of the Lord’s existence, and “na” means spiritual pleasure. When the verb “krish” is added to the affix “na,” it becomes “Krishna,” which indicates the Absolute Truth.’
CC Madhya 9.31: “As far as the Holy Names of Rama and Krishna are concerned, they are on an equal level, but for further advancement we receive some specific information from the revealed scriptures.
CC Madhya 9.32: “[Lord Shiva addressed his wife, Durga:] ‘O Varanana, I chant the Holy Name of Rama, Rama, Rama and thus enjoy this beautiful sound. This Holy Name of Ramachandra is equal to one thousand Holy Names of Lord Vishnu.’
CC Madhya 9.33: “The pious results derived from chanting the thousand Holy Names of Vishnu three times can be attained by only one utterance of the Holy Name of Krishna.’
CC Madhya 9.34: “According to this statement of the sastras, the glories of the Holy Name of Krishna are unlimited. Still I could not chant His Holy Name. Please hear the reason for this.
CC Madhya 9.35: "My worshipable Lord has been Lord Ramachandra, and by chanting His Holy Name I received happiness. Because I received such happiness, I chanted the Holy Name of Lord Rama day and night.
CC Madhya 9.36: “By Your appearance, Lord Krishna’s Holy Name also appeared, and at that time the glories of Krishna’s name awoke in my heart.
CC Madhya 9.37: “Sir, You are that Lord Krishna Himself. This is my conclusion.” Saying this, the brahmana fell down at the lotus feet of Shri Chahitanya Mahaprabhu.
CC Madhya 9.38: After showing mercy to the brahmana, Lord Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu left the next day and arrived at Vrddhakashi, where He visited the Temple of Lord Shiva.
