TEXT 122
tulasire tanke vesya namaskara kari'
dvare vasi' nama sune bale 'hari' 'hari'
tulasire—unto the tulasi plant; tanke—unto Haridasa Thakura; vesya—the prostitute; namaskara kari'-offering obeisances; dvare vasi'-sitting at the door; nama—the holy name; sune—hears; bale—says; hari hari—O my Lord Hari, O my Lord Hari.
After offering her obeisances to the tulasi plant and Haridasa Thakura, she sat down at the door. Hearing Haridasa Thakura chanting the Hare Krsna mantra, she also chanted,"O my Lord Hari, O my Lord Hari."
Herein one can clearly see how a Vaisnava delivers a fallen soul by a transcendental trick. The prostitute came to pollute Haridasa Thakura but he took it as his duty to deliver the prostitute. As clearly demonstrated here, the process of deliverance is very simple. With faith and reverence the prostitute associated with Haridasa Thakura, who personally treated her material disease by chanting the Hare Krsna maha-mantra. Although the prostitute had an ulterior motive, somehow or other she got the association of a Vaisnava and satisfied him by occasionally chanting in imitation, "O my Lord Hari, O my Lord Hari." The conclusion is that associating with a Vaisnava, chanting the holy name of the Lord and offering obeisances to the tulasi plant or a Vaisnava all lead one to become a transcendental devotee who is completely cleansed of all material contamination.
