“Lord Chaitanya is so merciful that even if someone is an offender one gets the mercy. So someone can say that, ‘well, what is the rational for that? It’s not logical or it’s not following any established system’. Well it’s because as Lord Chaitanya is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, He doesn’t have to follow any established system, He is independent, He can do whatever He likes. He makes the ground rules. In this particular avatar, in this particular descent, His mood is just to give out the mercy.”
