The greatest gift

Krishna came in His form as Chaitanya , then all there hardened criminals , instead of just killing them he would melt their hearts, he would make them devotees and give them Krishna prema. So in this way he killed the demoniac nature and he would give them the perfection of life. So therefore namo mahā-vadānyāya, there is no greater charitable person more than Lord Chaitanya. He is giving the greatest gift so freely. Actually Lord Chaitanya’s movement is still present on this planet and handed down through disciplic succession and by chanting the Holy name (jaya) sri-krishna-caitanya prabhu nityananda sri-advaita gadadhara srivasadi-gaura-bhakta-vrinda, by worshipping Sri Sri Gaur Nitai, we can get their mercy. This is brought now all over the west by Srila Prabhupad’s mercy. Therefore we have this opportunity of getting Lord Chaitanya’s mercy. Even though we may be criminals, in the karmic sense ,we may have had so many demoniac natures before being a devotee. Even those things which are not fully purified yet after having initially surrendered ,but by the mercy of Lord Chaitanya all these can be purified and we can actually achieve pure devotional service. So this is very special mercy of Lord Chaitanya. We should understand that Krishna has offered this opportunity to everybody.
