Today, we heard Lord Caitanya proceeding to Uḍupī, having darshan of Gopal and how He preached to Tattvavādīs of Mādhavācārya sampradāya.
Lord Caitanya, understanding that the Tattvavādīs were very proud of their Vaiṣṇavism, humbly questioned their chief Ācārya, what is the best ideal for humanity and how to attain it. The Ācārya said that if one dedicates the duties of varṇāśrama-dharma to Kṛṣṇa, he is eligible for five kinds of liberation and thus he is transferred to the spiritual world in Vaikuṇṭha. Lord Caitanya replied that according to the verdict of the śāstras, the process of hearing and chanting is the best means to attain loving service to Kṛṣṇa.
Varṇāśrama system without pure devotional service to Lord Kṛṣṇa is insufficient. To get Kṛṣṇa-prema, everyone has to engage in śravaṇaṁ, kīrtanaṁ and other seven processes of bhakti, to awaken the dormant love of Kṛṣṇa in the heart.
Our devotees need to learn Bhagavad-gītā and Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam and learn also the method of preaching of Caitanya Mahāprabhu and thus they can establish Lord Caitanya’s pure philosophy around the world and help people to awaken their natural love for Kṛṣṇa! Haribol! Gaurāṅga!
