sarvajña nityānanda āilā tāra ghare
āsiyā vasilā durgā-maṇḍapa-upare


sarva-jña — omniscient; nityānanda — Lord Nityānanda; āilā — came; tāra ghare — at his house; āsiyā — coming; vasilā — sat down; durgā-maṇḍapa-upare — on the altar of the Durgā-maṇḍapa.


Lord Nityānanda, who is omniscient because He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, came to the house of Rāmacandra Khān and sat down on the altar of the Durgā-maṇḍapa.


Well-to-do Hindu gentlemen constructed their houses with a place called the Durgā-maṇḍapa for the worship of the goddess Durgā. There they generally held worship of the goddess every year in the month of Āśvina (September-October). Rāmacandra Khān possessed such a Durgā-maṇḍapa at his residence.
