SYNONYMS
adyapiha—even up to date; dekha—you see; caitanya-nama—Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's name; yei—anyone; laya—who takes; krsna-preme—in love of Krsna; pulaka-asru—tears in ecstasy; vihvala—overwhelmed; se—he; haya—becomes.
TRANSLATION
Whether he is offensive or inoffensive, anyone who even now chants sri-krsna-caitanya prabhu-nityananda is immediately overwhelmed with ecstasy, and tears fill his eyes.
PURPORT
The prakrta-sahajiyas who chant nitai-gaura radhe syama have very little knowledge of the Bhagavata conclusion, and they hardly follow the Vaisnava rules and regulations, and yet because they chant bhaja nitai-gaura, their chanting immediately invokes tears and other signs of ecstasy. Although they do not know the principles of Vaisnava philosophy and are not very advanced in education, by these symptoms they attract many men to become their followers. Their ecstatic tears will of course help them in the long run, for as soon as they come in contact with a pure devotee their lives will become successful. Even in the beginning, however, because they are chanting the holy names of nitai-gaura, their swift advancement on the path of love of Godhead is very prominently visible.
