TEXT 207
yaha ghara, krsna karuna kusala sabara
amara sambandhe duhkha na ha-uka kahara"
yaha gharago to your homes; krsna karunamay Lord Krsna bestow; kusala sabarablessings to everyone; amara sambandheon my account; duhkhaunhappiness; na ha-ukamay there not be; kaharaof anyone.
"All of you may now go to your homes. May Lord Krsna bestow his blessings upon you all. Do not be sorry because of my being insulted."
From this statement by Haridasa Thakura, it is understood that a pure Vaisnava never takes anyone's insults seriously. This is the teaching of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu:
trnad api sunicena
taror api sahisnuna
amanina manadena
kirtaniyah sada harih
"One should chant the holy name of the Lord in a humble state of mind, thinking oneself lower than the straw in the street. One should be more tolerant than a tree, devoid of all sense of false prestige and ready to offer all respects to others. In such a state of mind one can chant the holy name of the Lord constantly." A Vaisnava is always tolerant and submissive like trees and grass. He tolerates insults offered by others, for he is simply interested in chanting the holy name of the Lord without being disturbed.
