PASTIME

Here, Śyamānanda Prabhu delivered a yavana-king named Haribalā. During the great festivities celebrated in the village Baḍakolā, the ruler of the place, the yavana-king named Haribalā came to visit that festival. At that time he was enchanted by observing his supernatural glories and he surrendered unto the lotus feet of Śyamānanda Prabhu. Śyamānanda Prabhu went to the house of the yavana along with Rasikānanda. The yavana-king told him to celebrate a great festival in his house and said he will sponsor all the expenses of that festival. It is described in ‘Śrī Rasika-maṅgala’ (southern section, eleventh laharī)-

medinīpurete se ālamagañja sthāna
tāra madhye mahotsava juḍila nidāna

Ālamagañja is a place in Midnāpore. A great festival is celebrated here.

Śyamānanda Prabhu celebrated a great festival by staying over there for three days, three nights and glorified the yavana-king.
