TEXT 255
narada kahe,--'yadi dhara amara vacana
tabe se karite pari tomara mocana'
narada kaheNarada Muni replied; yadi dharaif you accept; amara vacanamy instruction; tabethen; sethis; karite pariI can do; tomarayour; mocanaliberation.
"Narada Muni assured the hunter, 'If you listen to my instructions, I shall find the way you can be liberated.'
Gaurangera bhakta-gane jane jane sakti dhare. The purport of this song is that the devotees of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu are very powerful, and each and every one of them can deliver the whole world. What, then, to speak of Narada Muni? If one follows the instructions of Narada Muni, one can be delivered from any amount of sinful reactions. This is the process. One must follow the instructions of a spiritual master; then one will certainly be delivered from all sinful reaction. This is the secret of success. Yasya deve para bhaktir yatha deve tatha gurau. If one has unflinching faith in Krsna and the spiritual master, the result is tasyaite kathita hy arthah prakasante mahatmanah: all the conclusions of revealed scriptures will be open to such a person. A pure devotee of Krsna can make the same demands that Narada Muni is making. He says, "If you follow my instructions, I shall take responsibility for your liberation." A pure devotee like Narada can give assurance to any sinful man because by the grace of the Lord such a devotee is empowered to deliver any sinful person if that person follows the principles set forth.
