The most merciful incarnation – Gauranga

Krishna when He came, Rama when He came, different avatars when They came, They killed the demons with Their arrows, with Their swords, Krishna killed Kamsa with His own hand. So in this way the demon was killed and delivered, and those demons also achieved moksha by the Lord’s blessings, but Lord Caitanya, He didn’t kill the body of anyone like that. Rather the part of us, that demoniac aspect of us, that asuric bhava which was discribed by the followers of the Madhava, that there are some of these asuric bhavas, they cannot get rid of it, they cannot achieve moksha or they cannot become pure. But the modern day followers, some of them have this idea but Caitanya Mahaprabhu, His power was that He would destroy that particular kalush, that covering, that avaran, that demoniac aspect of a soul and leave the purified soul, that is why Lord Caitanya is considered to be the most merciful incarnation of Visnu, of Krishna.
