Purport to Parama Koruna
Los Angeles, January 4, 1969
Prabhupada: Parama koruna, pahu dui jana, nitai gauracandra. This is a song by Locana dasa Thakura, a great devotee and acarya of the Gaudiya-sampradaya. He is declaring that pahu dui jana. Pahu means lords. Dui jana means two. Who are the two lords? Nitai Gauracandra. One is Lord Nitai, Nityananda; another is Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. So he says that "These two Lords are very merciful.'' Parama koruna, pahu dui jana. Parama koruna means very merciful. Nitai Gauracandra. Saba avatara, sara siromani. Avatara means incarnation, and saba means all. "They are the essence of all incarnations.'' Saba avatara, sara siromani, kevala ananda-kanda: "And the specific significance of these incarnations is that to prosecute their ways of self-realization is simply joyful,'' ananda-kanda. They introduced chanting and dancing. No other incarnation There are many incarnation, just like Lord Rama. Even Krsna, He taught Bhagavad-gita. That requires knowledge, understanding. But here Lord Caitanya, Nityananda, introduced some process which is simply joyful: simply chant and dance. Kevala ananda-kanda. Saba avatara, sara siromani, kevala ananda-kanda.
Therefore he requests everyone, bhajo bhajo bhai, caitanya nitai: "My dear brothers, I request you. Just you worship Lord Caitanya and Nityananda.'' Sudrdha biswasa kori': "With firm conviction and faith.'' Don't think that this chanting and dancing will not lead you to the desired goal. It will because there is assurance of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu that you will get all perfection by this process. Therefore Locana dasa Thakura says that "You must have firm faith and conviction.'' It will act. Bhajo bhajo bhai, caitanya nitai, sudrdha. Sudrdha means firm. Biswasa kori', with faith and conviction. But what is the process? The process is visaya chadiya, se rase majiya. If you want to be Krsna conscious under that process, then you have to give up your engagement of sense gratification. That is the only restriction. You cannot do that. Then it will be very nice. If you give up sense gratification and come to this stage, then it is sure that you will reach to the desired goal. Visaya chadiya, se rase majiya, mukhe bolo hari hari: "And you have to simply chant Hare Krsna, 'Hari Hari,' that's all, without any motive of sense gratification.''
Dekho dekho bhai, tri-bhuvane nai. He says, "My dear brothers, you just try and examine that within these three worlds there is nobody like Lord Caitanya or Nityananda Prabhu.'' Because, pasu pakhi jhure, pasana vidare: "Their mercy and qualities are so great that even birds and beasts, they are crying, what to speak of human being?'' Actually, when Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu passed through the forest of Jharigrama, the tigers, the elephants, the snake, the deer, all joined Him in chanting Hare Krsna. It is so nice. Anyone can join. Animals can join, what to speak of human being? Of course, it is not possible for ordinary man to enthuse animals to chant, but Caitanya Mahaprabhu did it actually. So even if we cannot enthuse animals, we can enthuse at least human being to this path of Hare Krsna mantra chanting. Pasu pakhi jhure, pasana vidare. And it is so nice that even the most stonehearted men will be melted. Pasana vidare. Pasana means stone, and vidare. Pasana, even stone, will melt. It is so nice. But he regrets that, visaya majiya: "Being entrapped by sense gratification...'' Visaya majiya, rohili bhuliya. He's addressing himself, "My dear mind, you are entrapped in the sense gratification process and you have no attraction for chanting Hare Krsna.''
Visaya bhuliya, rohili majiya, se pade nahilo asa: "You have no attraction for the lotus feet of Caitanya-Nityananda. So what can I say? It is only...'' Apana karama, bhunjaya samana: "I can simply think of my misfortune only that Yamaraja, the superintendent of death, he is punishing me in this way, that he is not allowing me to be attracted to this movement.'' This is the statement of Kahoye locana-dasa: "This is the statement of Locana dasa Thakura.'' (end)
