TEXT 187
tomāra upare prabhura suprasanna mana
tomā lakṣya kari' śikhāyena nija gaṇa
SYNONYMS
tomāra upare—upon you; prabhura—of Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; su-prasanna—very satisfied; mana—the mind; tomā—you; lakṣya kari'-pointing out; śikhāyena—He teaches; nija gaṇa—His personal associates.
TRANSLATION
Sārvabhauma Bhaṭṭācārya 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 Jagannātha. 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 Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and His very confidential devotees. As a general principle, however, no devotee should intimately mix with mundane people interested in money and women.
