TEXT 113
bhakti-siddhanta-viruddha, ara rasabhasa
sunite na haya prabhura cittera ullasa
bhakti-siddhanta—conclusive statements about the science of devotional service; viruddha—opposing; ara—and; rasa-abhasa—overlapping of transcendental mellows; sunite—to hear; na—not; haya—becomes; prabhura—of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; cittera—of the heart; ullasa—jubilation.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu was never pleased to hear books or verses opposed to the conclusive statements of devotional service. The Lord did not like hearing rasabhasa, the overlapping of transcendental mellows.
Bhakti-siddhanta-viruddha refers to that which is against the principle of unity in diversity, philosophically known as acintya-bhedabheda-simultaneous oneness and difference-while rasabhasa is something that may appear to be a transcendental mellow but actually is not. Those who are pure Vaisnavas should avoid both these things opposed to devotional service. These misconceptions practically parallel the Mayavada philosophy. If one indulges in Mayavada philosophy, he gradually falls down from the platform of devotional service. By overlapping mellows (rasabhasa) one eventually becomes a prakrta-sahajiya and takes everything to be very easy. One may also become a member of the baula community and gradually become attracted to material activities. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu has therefore advised us to avoid bhakti-siddhanta-viruddha and rasabhasa. In this way the devotee can remain pure and free from falldowns. Everyone should try to remain aloof from bhakti-siddhanta-viruddha and rasabhasa.
