"If I do not receive Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's mercy, my body and my kingdom are certainly useless."
This is an excellent example of drdha-vrata, determination. If one does not receive the Supreme Personality of Godhead's mercy, one's life is defeated. In Srimad-Bhagavatam (5.5.5) it is said: parabhavas tavad abodha-jato yavan na jijnasata atma-tattvam. Unless one inquires into spiritual life, everything is useless. Without spiritual inquiry, our labor and the object of our labor are simply a waste of time.
