"Whosever welfare you desire immediately becomes a Vaisnava, and Krsna delivers all Vaisnavas from the reactions of their past sinful activities.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu here informed Vasudeva Datta that since Krsna is all-powerful, He can immediately deliver all conditioned souls from material existence. In essence, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu said, "You desire the liberation of all kinds of living entities without discrimination. You are very anxious for their good fortune, and I say that simply by your prayer all living entities within the universe can be liberated. You do not even have to take up the burden of their sinful activities. Thus there is no need for you to suffer for their sinful lives. Whoever receives your compassion becomes a Vaisnava immediately, and Krsna delivers all Vaisnavas from the reactions to their past sinful activities." This is also promised in Bhagavad-gita (18.66):
sarva-dharman parityajya
mam ekam saranam vraja
aham tvam sarva-papebhyo
moksayisyami ma sucah
"Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reaction. Do not fear."
As soon as one fully surrenders to Krsna, he becomes a Vaisnava. In this verse from Bhagavad-gita, Krsna promises to relieve His devotee from all the reactions to sinful life. It is a fact that a fully surrendered Vaisnava is completely out of the range of material infection. This is to say that he does not suffer the results of pious or impious actions. Unless one is freed from a sinful life, he cannot become a Vaisnava. In other words, if one is a Vaisnava, his sinful life is certainly ended. According to Padma Purana:
aprarabdha-phalam papam
kutam bijam phalonmukham
kramenaiva praliyeta
"There are different stages of dormant reactions to sinful activities to be observed in a sinful life. Sinful reactions may be just waiting to take effect [phalonmukha], reactions may be still further dormant [kuta], or the reactions may be in a seedlike state [bija]. In any case, all types of sinful reactions are vanquished one after another if a person engages in the devotional service of Lord Visnu."
