Jai Shri Krishna,
Yes Prakashji! Shri Vallabhacharya and Shri Chaitanya met twice in personal and one of the incidents is about the conversation between the two i.e.
Shri Vallabhacharyaji, who was staying in Adaila village, heard of Shri Chaitanya’s arrival and so came to see Him. Shri Vallabhacharyaji invited Shri Chaitanya for lunch, and the Shri Chaitanya introduced Rupa and Anupama to him. From a distance the two brothers offered their obeisance to Shri Vallabhacharyaji with great humility. When the Acharya was coming to embrace them, Rupa said, "We are untouchables and most sinful. Please do not touch us." Shri Vallabhacharyaji was surprised at this, but Shri Chaitanya was very much pleased and said, "Don't touch them as they belong to very low caste, you are an aristocratic Yagnik brahmin." Hearing the Holy Name, constantly vibrated by the two brothers, Shri Vallabhacharyaji said, "since these two brothers incessantly chanting
Krishna ’s Name, they can not be untouchables. On the contrary they are most exalted."
Then Shri Chaitanya said to Shri Vallabhacharyaji, "Even if one were to spend less time in the company of a saint or an enlightened human being, than the time takes for a mustard seed remain on the tip of a horn, all sins would be destroyed."
To this, Shri Vallabhacharyaji said "If you give up good company and thoughts for even as short a time as it takes for a mustard seed to stay on a cow’s horn, you will become a victim to negative thoughts and actions".
Shri Vallabhacharyaji then took Shri Chaitanya to his village on a boat and after lunch brought Him back to Prayag.
I very much agree wid u prakashji about chanting Maximum round is as much as possible and that’s the reason Shri Vallabhacharyaji says "Tasmat sarvatmana nityam, "Shri Krishnah Sharanam mama" Vadadbhireva satatam; stheyamityeva me matih"
Sitalji, I too agree with your statement “The bliss of seva received in Pushtimarg cannot be compared to any other marg”. The reason I agree is in relation with the following incident.
One day, Gopaladasa, a disciple of Shri Chaitanya requested his guru to grant him a deity to worship who in turn entrusted to him a Shaligrama. Gopaladasa worshipped the Shaligram but was distressed by heart as he desired to worship a deity which he could adorn with clothes and jewels. He once again prayed to his guru for a deity but in despair.
One night, Shri Krishna Chaitanya, who had left for Jagannathpuri, appeared in his dream and told him that he was incarnated to establish the greatness of the chanting of the Lord's holy names, but his wish would be fulfilled by Shri Vallabhacharya Mahaprabhuji, who had the right to grant the service of the Lord's deity.
When Shri Mahaprabhuji arrived in Vrindavana, Gopaladasa pleaded Him to grant him a deity for worship. Shri Mahaprabhuji, instead of giving him a deity said that if he worshipped with pure sentiments then his Shaligrama would transform into a deity of his desire. He asked Gopaladas to wait until morning to see the change in his Shaligrama.
The following morning, by the grace of Shri Mahaprabhuji, his Shaligrama had transformed into the most enchanting and charming form of Shri Krishna which he called as Radha Ramana (this deity is still in Vrindavana).
Gopaladasa, realising that Shri Mahaprabhuji was Krishna Himself, approached Him with the hope of becomming His disciple. But Shri Mahaprabhuji told him that He would accept him in his next birth. So, after many years, Gopaladasa was reborn as Gopala Naga, the renowned devotee of the Path of Grace.
Prakashji, i don’t agree when u say that each Marg attains the same goal coz;
In PUSHTIMARG the main Goal is Sri Krishna and Sri Krishna's Bhakti and In MARYADAMARG the main Goal is Moksha.
Sorry for such a long posting but this is up to my limited knowledge. Please correct me if i'm wrong.
