SYNONYMS
tabe—thereafter; mahaprabhu—Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; tanre—unto him; krpa-drsti kari'-glancing with mercy; asvasiya—giving assurance; kahe—says; tumi—you; kaha—utter; krsna—the holy name Krsna; hari—the holy name Hari.
TRANSLATION
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu then glanced with mercy at the Mohammedan governor. Giving him assurance, He asked him to chant the holy names Krsna and Hari.
PURPORT
It is Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's mercy that He advises everyone-even candalas, mlecchas and yavanas-to chant the holy name of the Lord. In other words, one who has taken to chanting the holy names Krsna and Hari has already received Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's mercy. The Lord's request to chant the holy name of Krsna is now extended to everyone in the world through this Krsna consciousness movement. Whoever follows Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's instructions will certainly be purified, and one who sincerely chants the holy name offenselessly is already more than a brahmana. Unfortunately there are many fools and rascals in India who do not allow Western Vaisnavas to enter certain temples. Such rascals do not clearly understand the Vedas. As stated previously: yan-namadheya-sravananukirtanad.
