The Ostentatious Vrndavana dasa Thakura

(Harmonist) – April 20th, 2023 | by Harmonist staff

By Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaja

While writing Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Kaviraja Goswami has expressed so much humility—humility of such a degree, that he says,

“My position is the worst; I am a sinner far worse than Jagai and Madhai, I am lower than the worm in the stool. If anyone hears my name, his merit will be diminished; and if anyone speaks my name, he commits sin such kind of wretched person I am. But the grace of Nityananda Prabhu has taken me up from such a nasty pit, taken me to Rupa-Sanatana, to Raghunatha das, and to divine Vrindavan.

“I should not proclaim this, I should not speak in such a way, that ‘I have got something’ but if I do not say so, then it will show ingratitude to Nityananda Prabhu, I would be a traitor to him. So I shall have to say, to admit, ‘I have got something,’ and that is by the grace of Nityananda. It is all his property, his grace, otherwise, there is nothing, no worth at all in me.”

With so much humility Kaviraja Goswami is approaching the public and appealing to them to come to Gaura-Nityananda.

But Vrindavana dasa Thakura, in his writing, says,

“I appeal most fervently and with the greatest humility to you all: accept Nityananda and Sri Gauranga! You’ll get the best benefit of your life. This I urgently beg you, with the utmost humility, with a straw between my teeth. But if such appeal of mine fails, and if still, you want to put blame on Nityananda-Gauranga, then I just kick you! I kick such a person, demoniac person.”
