Sripad Tirtha Maharaj speaks in the temple at Imli Tala.
in Sri Krishna Das Kaviraj's description of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's
tour of Vrindavan he mentions the Lord's Pastimes at Imli Tala.
Imli Tala is located within 5 minutes walk of our Vrindavan
Temple and was visited numerous times by our parikrama party
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu used to sit beneath the old tamarind
tree and chant the Holy Name of the Lord. At noon He would
return to Akrura-tirtha to take lunch. All the people who
lived near Akrura-tirtha came to see Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu,
and due to the large crowds, the Lord could not peacefully
chant the Holy Name. Therefore Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu would
go to Vrndavana and sit in a solitary place. It was there
that He chanted the Noly Name until noon.
Chaitanya Charitamrta, Madhya, 18.78-80
Sridhar Maharaj has glorified Imli Tala (Tamarind Tree) in
his Sri Sri Prema Dhama Deva Stotram (verse 42):
talastha yamunormmi bhavanaplutam
nirjanaika radhikatma bhava vaibhavavrtam
syama radhikapta gaura tattva bhittikakaram
prema dhama devam eva naumi gaura sundaram
the Lord was visiting various places in Vrindavan where Lord
Krishna performed His Pastimes, He visited that famous tamarind
tree that existed during the Dvapara era. Sitting beneath
the tamarind tree, the Lord's memory of His confidential water-sporting
Pastimes with the cowherd maidens was aroused when He saw
the dancing gestures of the Yamuna's waves. The Lord's entire
being was captured by tasting the sweetness of Sri Radha within
the depths of His heart. Identifying with that selfsame sweetness
and emotion that possessed His entire self, the Lord's entire
esxistence was stolen away. This place is indicated to be
the place of origin of Gauratattva, for it was here
that Lord Syamasundar became greatly absorbed in the divine
mood of Srimati Radharani. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who is
Himself the origin of all, eternally resides in this place.
I offer my obeisances to that beautiful Golden Lord, Gauranga
Sundar, the divine form of Krishna Prema.
