Svarupa Damodara And Devotees Chant The Name Of Krishna Into Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's Ear 

Svarupa Damodara, along with Govinda, stayed by the door to Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's room, and heard that he was awake throughout the entire night, chanting Hare Krishna very loudly. When they heard no more chanting, Svarupa Damodara entered the room but could not find Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. All the devotees became anxious and looked everywhere for Lord Chaitanya, using a small lamp. They found him lying unconscious in a corner. His body had become elongated and all the joints in His arms, legs, neck and waist were separated by at least six inches. They saw no breath coming from his nostrils and His body temperature was very low. Seeing this, all the devotees were very unhappy, but they began to chant the holy name of Krishna very loudly into the ear of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. After chanting in this way for a long time, suddenly Chaitanya Mahaprabhu arose with a loud shout of "Haribol!" and His body returned to normal
