TEXT 300
sathira matara prema, ara prabhura prasada
bhakta-sambandhe yaha ksamila aparadha
sathira matara premathe love of the mother of Sathi; araand; prabhura prasadathe mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; bhakta-sambandhebecause of a relationship with a devotee; yahawhere; ksamila aparadhaSri Caitanya Mahaprabhu excused the offense.
Thus I have related the ecstatic love of Sarvabhauma's wife, who is known as the mother of Sathi. I have also related Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's great mercy, which He manifested by excusing Amogha's offense. He did so due to Amogha's relationship with a devotee.
Amogha was an offender because he blasphemed the Lord. As a result, he was about to die of cholera. Amogha did not receive an opportunity to be freed from all offenses after being attacked by the disease, but Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya and his wife were very dear to the Lord. Because of their relationship, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu excused Amogha. Instead of being punished by the Lord, he was saved by the Lord's mercy. All this was due to the unflinching love of Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya for Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Externally, Amogha was Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya's son-in-law, and he was being maintained by Sarvabhauma. Consequently if Amogha were not excused, his punishment would have directly affected Sarvabhauma. Amogha's death would have indirectly brought about the death of Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya.
