TEXT 187
tomara upare prabhura suprasanna mana
toma laksya kari' sikhayena nija gana
SYNONYMS
tomara upare—upon you; prabhura—of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; su-prasanna—very satisfied; mana—the mind; toma—you; laksya kari'-pointing out; sikhayena—He teaches; nija gana—His personal associates.
TRANSLATION
Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya informed the King, "The Lord is very satisfied with you. By pointing you out, He was teaching His personal associates how to behave with mundane people."
PURPORT
Although outwardly the King was a mundane man interested in money and women, internally he was purified by devotional activities. He showed this by engaging as a street sweeper to please Lord Jagannatha. A person may appear to be a pounds-and-shillings man interested in money and women, but if he is actually very meek and humble and surrendered to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, he is not mundane. Such a judgment can be made only by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and His very confidential devotees. As a general principle, however, no devotee should intimately mix with mundane people interested in money and women.
