The Origin of the Living Entity
Friday, 2000, Badger (New Braja) California, USA
In his discourse below, Srila Narayana Gosvami Maharaja discusses a conversation between Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Srila Sanatana Gosvami, from Srila Krsnadasa Kaviraja Gosvami's book, Sri Caitanya-caritamrta. Srila Sanatana Gosvami is playing the role of a conditioned soul who is seeking divine self-awareness and freedom from material miseries. He has inquired about his own true identity, beyond the body.
Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja: Srila Sanatana Gosvami inquired from Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, "I have come to this world, but I do not know who I am. Who am I?"
