If You Adulterate, It Will NOT Go On ...

Unadulterated Krishna (Sri Caitanya-caritamrta)

If you push on this movement, unadulterated Krishna, it will go on. And as soon as you adulterate Krishna, it will not go on. You may be very good scholar or very good politician, but you’ll never understand Krishna. If you want to pollute Krishna, Krishna will never be revealed to you.

Krishna Caitanya is Krsna. That was observed by Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya. He composed one hundred verses praising the glories of Lord Caitanya, but because Caitanya Mahaprabhu was playing the part of a devotee, He thrown away the slokas, because “This is not for Me.” That was Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s humbleness. But the devotees know that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is Krsna Himself. Sri-krsna-caitanya radha-krsna nahe anya. Radha-Krsna combination of Sri Caitanya… Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu means Radha and Krsna combined. In the beginning there is Krsna, and then Krsna divided into two, Radha and Krsna. And then again combined, that is Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

radha-krsna-pranaya-vikrtir hladini saktir asmad
ekatmanav api (bhuvi pura) deha-bhedam gatau tau
caitanyakhyam prakatam adhuna tad-dvayam caikyam aptam…

So the Gosvami’s siddhanta, that Krsna is one. There is no rivalry with Krsna. God is one. Eka-brahma dvitiya nasti. There cannot be many Gods. So when God, Krsna, wants to enjoy His pleasure potency, that is Radharani. So He manifests Himself, manifests His energy… His energy and He, there is no difference. Sakti-saktimator abhedah. The sastra says sakti and the saktimat–means one who possesses the sakti (sakti means power, potency)–they are equal. 

There is no difference. Just like the sun. Sun is the powerful, and the sunshine is the power. So there is heat in the sun and there is heat also in the sunshine. There is light in the sun and there is light in the sunshine also. Therefore qualitatively they are one so far heat and light is concerned. But the temperature of the sun and the temperature of the sunshine may be different. May be not. Actually there is difference. This is the basic principle of all philosophies. Acintya-bhedabheda. Acintya means inconceivable, bheda means different, and abheda means non-different. The whole situation… The one is there, God, but He has expanded Himself in different way. Eko bahu syam.

So that is described here. Krsna-caitanya-samjnakam. Krsna Caitanya Mahaprabhu, He has expanded Himself as gurun. The guru, the spiritual master, he’s also Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Saksad-dharitvena samasta-sastrair uktah. In all the sastras, guru is accepted as Krsna. Saksad-dharitvena. Saksad means directly. Just like you offer your devotion, respects, to guru. 

So that respect is offered to Krsna. Guru also does not think himself that he is Krsna, but he collects the devotional services of the disciples to offer to Krsna. This is the process. We cannot approach Krsna directly. 

We should approach through guru. 

Tasmad gurum prapadyeta jijnasuh sreya uttamam. That is the injunction of the sastra, that one should approach the guru who can transfer the service from the disciple to the Supreme Person. So… Therefore the first offering is guru, vande gurun. Then guru creates many devotees. Guru’s business is to canvass on behalf of Supreme Lord. That is guru’s business. Krsna says, sarva-dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja, so, “You give up all material, engage…” 

Sarva-dharman means in the material world we have created so many so-called duties. This is our material disease. People are interested in material engagements and they have created different varieties of engagements. Sociology, communism, and this “ism,” that “ism,” philanthropism, altruism, internationalism, nationalism–many, many duties they have created. 

That is all material. Krsna, out of His causeless mercy… (children crying) Stop that children. Out of His causeless mercy, He comes, He descends. Yada yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati bharata. Glanir, this is glanir. Human life is meant for one thing, athato brahma-jijnasa, to inquire about the Supreme Absolute Truth. But instead of doing that, they have created so many “isms.” That is their misfortune.

Real business is athato brahma-jijnasa. This human life, nature, gives us the opportunity to inquire about the Absolute Truth. We have got the intelligence. The cats and dogs, they have no intelligence to inquire about the Absolute Truth. The trees, the plants, the aquatics, the animals, the beasts, the uncivilized man–so many, 8,400,000 forms and species of life. 

Out of that, the civilized men, the Aryans… Arya. Arya means the person who has got godly qualification. This is the meaning of Aryan. Aryan, advanced. Aryan does not mean godless society. They are non-Aryans. Real Aryan means… Because we are part and parcel of God, naturally we have got, in minute quantity, the qualities of God. That is natural. But on account of our material association, those qualifications are covered now by upadhi, by various designations. 

This is our material disease. Material disease means… Just like a gold is covered by dirty, dirty things. Similarly, we are actually gold, because part and parcel of Krsna. We are a small Krsna, very small, but we are also the same quality. But it is covered. This is our disease. And these coverings are going on in different names–socialism, communism, and this “ism”–so many. “I am Indian,” “I am American,” “I am Hindu,” “I am Muslim,” “I am white,” “I am black”–these are all designations.
