Jayapataka Swami: In Nectar Of Devotion, a very poor man, he did not have capital to have golden ornaments and golden bowls. So in the mind, he was doing an elaborate worship of the Lord. He was cooking and putting all the offerings in golden bowls, but he was doing all this mentally. One day he cooked sweet rice for the Lord, payasam. So he wanted to know if it was too hot or not. In meditation, he touched the payasam with his finger and ahhhhhhhh!  Owwww! And his meditation broke and he saw his finger had a blister on it! He had burnt his finger! How could he burn his finger in meditation? So Lord Narayana was laughing and Laksmi asked, ‘what makes You laugh?’ He said, I will show You, bring him up. Then he sent His Visnudutas to bring up the brahmana, RIGHT UP TO THE SPIRITUAL WORLD, BACK TO GODHEAD! Haribol! Haribol! Haribol!
