Question: How was it that Sārvabhauma Bhaṭṭācārya attracted to the mercy of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu? Was it Gopīnātha Ācārya’s desire?

Jayapataka Swami: Hm… Interesting! He was actually incarnation of the guru of the devas – Bṛhaspati and he came down to teach Lord Caitanya, but he got tricked and became a Māyāvādī. So Lord Caitanya remembered that he came to serve Him. So he came and He converted him to a devotee. Today we read that how He said in his previous life you were already a devotee of Kṛṣṇa. I was thinking that maybe Lord Caitanya was remembering that he was Brihaspati before. Anyway, somehow or another he got the mercy of Lord Caitanya and so I hope that you will get the mercy also.
