Vaisnava ke

(By Bhagavan Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur Prabhupad)

 

dusta mana! tumi kisera vaisnava?
pratisthara tarenirjanera ghare
tava harinama kevala kaitava [1]

"O naughty mind! What kind of a Vaishnav are you? You stay alone at home for your own fame and name—your chanting of the Holy Name is nothing but cheating.

 

jadera pratisthasukarera vistha
jana na ki taha mayara vaibhava?
kanaka-kaminidivasa-yamini
bhariya ki kaja, anitya se saba [2]

"Material name and fame are pig's stool. Do you not know that it is a part of maya, illusory environment? Your days and nights are filled with worries about money and women, but what is the use? It is all temporary.

 

tomara kanakabhogera janaka
kanakera dvare sevaha madhava
kaminira kamanahe tava dhama
tahara malika kevala yadava [3]

"Your money is the source of enjoyment, but you must use money to serve Madhava. You hanker for women, but they are not meant for you: their only proprietor is Yadava, Krishna.

 

pratisthasa-tarujada-maya-maru
na pele ravana yujhiya raghava
vaisnavi pratisthatate kara nistha
taha na bhajile labhibe raurava [4]

"When Ravana fought against Raghava (Lord Ramachandra), he could not get the tree of name and fame in the desert of material illusory environment. Worship with sincerity the glory of Vaishnavs because if you do not, you will go to hell.

 

hari-jana-dvesapratisthasa-klesa
kara kena tabe tahara gaurava
vaisnavera pachhepratisthasa achhe
tata kabhu nahe anitya vaibhava [5]

"Hating devotees, always suffering from the desire for name and fame—what is so glorious about that? Pratistha runs behind the Vaishnavs, and there is nothing temporary in that—Vaishnavs's fame is eternal.

 

se hari-sambandhasunya-maya-gandha
taha kabhu naya jadera kaitava
pratistha-chandalinirjanata-jali
ubhaye janiha mayika raurava [6]

"Those who have a relation with the Lord, who do not have even a scent of illusion, never engage in material cheating. The nets of living alone are just like the fame of a female dog-eater—both are hell of maya.

 

kirtana chhadibapratistha magiba
ki kaja dhundiya tadrsa gaurava
madhavendra-puribhava-ghare churi
na karila kabhu sadai janaba [7]

"You give up kirtan and seek prestige and position, but what is the use of seeking such glory? Always remember that Madhavendra Puri never did anything for his own sense pleasure (lit. never stole from the house of this senses).

 

tomara pratisthasukarera vistha
tara-saha sama kabhu na manaba
matsarata-vasetumi jada-rase
ma'jechha chhadiya kirtana-sausthava [8]

"Your fame is pig's stool. Never think it is one and the same [as the fame of great Vaishnavs]—you only sink to endless jealousy and enjoyment of the material world, giving up the greatness of kirtan.

 

tai dusta mananirjana bhajana
pracharichha chhale kuyogi-vaibhava
prabhu sanataneparama yatane
siksa dila yaha, chinta' sei saba [9]

"O naughty mind, you want to practise in a secluded place, but actually on pretence of preaching you are engaged in a foul practice. Mahaprabhu took so much care to teach this to Sanatan Goswami, always remember this.

 

sei duti kathabhula' na sarvatha
uchchaihsvare kara harinama-rava
phalgu ara yukta,baddha ara mukta
kabhu na bhaviha 'eka-kara' saba [10]

"Wherever you are you must not forget these two topics [false renunciation and proper renunciation] and loudly chant the Holy Name of the Lord. Whether you are a conditioned soul or a liberated soul, never think that false and proper renunciation are one and the same.

 

kanaka-kaminipratistha-baghini
chhadiyachhe yare, sei ta vaisnava
sei anasaktasei suddha bhakta
samsara tatha paya parabhava [11]

"Those who give up money, women, and fame the tigress, are the true Vaishnavs—they are detached, they are pure devotees, and they can defeat the whole material world.

 

yatha-yogya bhoganahi tatha roga
anasakta sei, ki ara kahaba
asakti-rahitasambandha-sahita
visaya-samuha sakali madhava [12]

"Those who take only what is necessary, have no disease and are truly detached. What more can I say? When you are free from material attachment and establish relationship with the Lord, then you will see that everything around you is Lord Madhav Himself.

 

se yukta-vairagyataha ta saubhagya
tahai jadete harira vaibhava
kirtane yaharapratistha-sambhara
tahara sampati kevala kaitava [13]

"Those who practise such proper renunciation are extremely fortunate—they become an extension of the Lord in this material world. If somebody does kirtan (chants the Holy Name, preaches, etc.) for their own name and fame, then the result is nothing but cheating.

 

visaya-mumuksabhogera vubhuksu
du'ye tyaja mana, dui avaisnava
krsnera sambandhaaprakrta skandha
kabhu nahe taha jadera sambhava [14]

"Some want liberation from the material world, and some want to enjoy—dear mind, renounce both, for they are both not Vaishnavs. What is related to Krishna and the transcendental world has nothing to do with the material world.

 

mayavadi janakrsne-tara mana
mukta abhimane se ninde vaisnava
vaisnavera dasatava bhakti asa
kena va dakichha nirjana ahava [15]

"Mayavadis, impersonalists, who are averse to Krishna and have the ego of being liberated offend Vaishnavs. O mind, if you are a servant of Vaishnavs and aspire for devotion, why are you then crying and fighting for solitude?

 

ye phalgu-vairagikahe nije tyagi
se na pare kabhu haite vaisnava
haripada chhadi'nirjanata bari
labhiya ki phala, phalgu se vaibhava [16]

"Those who engage in false renunciation and call themselves taygi, can never become a Vaishnav. You leave the lotus feet of the Lord and stay alone at home, but what will you get by that? The result will be false.

 

rada-dasye rahichhada bhoga-ahi
pratisthasa nahe kirtana-gaurava
radha-nitya-janataha chhadi mana
kena va nirjana-bhajana-kaitava [17]

"If you stay with Radharani's servants, giving up the snake of enjoyment, for your own name and fame, it is not the real glorious kirtan. O mind, you leave the eternal associates of Radha, what is the use cheating with your solitary practice?

 

vraja-basi-ganapracharaka dhana
pratistha-bhiksuka tara nahe saba
prana achhe tarase hetu prachara
pratisthasa-hina-krsna-gatha saba [18]

"The devotees of Vraja are treasure among preachers. They ask for no prestige that is an attribute of dead bodies: as long as they have life in their bodies, they preach and glorify Krishna without any desire for recognition.

 

sri-dayita-dasakirtanete asa
kara uchchaihsvare harinama rava
kirtana-prabhavesmarana haibe
se kale bhajana nirjana sambhava [19]

"Praying to be able to do kirtan, Sri Dayita Das loudly takes the Holy Name. Chanting of the Holy Name (kirtan) arouses remembrance (smarana), and at that time it becomes possible to practise nirjan-bhajan."

Emporium of All Rasa
'In Krishna-lila, everything is there—santa-, dasya-, sakhya-, vatsalya-, madhura-rasa—that is why Krishna is considered the Supreme Personality of Godhead.'

 

      

Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur said that pratistha is like stool of a pig. You can tolerate the stool
of a human, but the stool of a pig has a very bad smell. Pratistha is very dangerous.
