One early morning Pujyapad B.A. Paramadvaiti Maharaja went to Imlitala Gaudiya Math and found that a big branch of the Imlitala tree on the floor. Curious what devotees would do with that branch Paramadvaiti Maharaja approached Sripad Damodar Maharaja and inquired. Damodar Maharaja replied that he did not know and Paramadvaiti Maharaja asked if he could take the branch to Vrinda-kunja? Damodar Maharaja smiled and said: "What a sannyasi will do with a big piece of wood?". But Maharaja agreed and immediately devotees from Vrinda-kunja came to transport the holy branch. While devotees were carefully cutting the wood into pieces Paramadvaiti Maharaja looked at one particular piece and discovered that it was Mahaprabhu who appeared standing in a dancing position with his two arms in the sky. Today Imlitala Mahaprabhu is worshipped in Yamuna-kunja, which is located next to Imlitala. Devotees from different parts of the world come here and in a mood of gratefulness remember how the divine couple Sri Sri Radha and Krishna united in Imlitala to become Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the incarnation of God who indiscrimately distributes divine love to everyone. A small Mahaprabhu was also carved from the branch and is worshipped in Vrinda-kunja. When Pujyapad Srila B.P. Puri Maharaja was approached and asked wether Mahaprabhu should be installed, Srila Puri Maharaja replied that there is no need for an installation as Mahaprabhu was already present.
"So this is Imlitala, where the divine couple has manifested in a joined form as Caitanya Mahaprabhu. This is Imlitala, the land of love, the origin of the distribution, when madhurya becomes audarya, that is when Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu appears in this world and He goes out and He distributes that mercy all over the world and that is why we are here. We are the living proof, the evidence of, that the Supreme Autocrat is supremely merciful, that He wants to bring us here. Everytime I am coming and seeing the Yamuna-kunja, I am walking into a dream."
