Mercy Is All in All

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Sri Vyasa Puja of Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj
8 December 2014, Bengali class, part 2

 

I told about it the other day. When Mahaprabhu came to Puri, Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya did not give obeisance to Him and Gopinath Acharya said to him,

"Why are you not paying obeisance to Him? Do you know who He is?"

"Know what? He is a new sannyasi, a young boy..."

"Oh, you do not know..."

"Do not know what?"

"He is the Lord Himself! He is the grandson of Nilambhar Chakravarti, the son of Jagannath Mishra. He took sannyas and His name is now Sri Krishna Chaitanya. He is the Lord Himself!"

"I do not think so."

"Well, you have not read the scriptures, so you do not know the scriptures..."

"I have read many scriptures! I know all the scriptures!"

"Oh, you say you have read all the scriptures? But have you read Mahabharata? Have you read Srimad Bhagavatam?"

"OK, you go take prasadam now. We will talk later."

Later, Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya said,

"Because I do not consider Him the Lord you say I do not know the scriptures!"

"Prabhu, can I say something?"

"OK."

"You cannot know the Lord through your education, through your intelligence, or knowledge. You must feel it with your heart."

Another time, there was a debate between Sankara Acharya's group and Vaishnavs. The group of Sankar Acharya said, "We do not accept the commentary of Sridhar Swami! We will accept it only if Sivji Maharaj says so." So, they took the book with the commentary and kept it inside a temple of Lord Siva. The next day they came and saw that Sivji Maharaj himself had written a commentary—"Aham vedmi, Suka vetti, Vyasa vetti na vetti va." "Aham vetti" means "I know," "Suka vetti" means "Sukadev, the son and disciple of Vyasadev knows it," but Vyasadev (who wrote the Bhagavatam) may or may not know it.

The mercy of the Guru is all in all...

Our Only Duty
'It is necessary to clean yourself. In this world, you have no enemy, you have no friend—only you yourself are your own enemy. If you want to make other people happy, you are only cheating yourself. You must understand that your duty is to please Guru, Vaishnav, Bhagavan.'

 

Jaya jaya gurudever
'You are always joyful in the sadhus' association. You are simple and humble. In assemblies, you are the best speaker. Everywhere you are victorious.'

but who can run with the crazy people?
