Murari and Shridhara fell down before the Lord and wept. Again and again roaring like thunder, Lord Gauranga chewed betelnuts.
Then Lord Gauranga was merciful to Haridasa. "Look at Me, Haridasa", He called out.
"Your body is better than My body. Your birth is more exalted than My birth.
"My heart broke to think of how the sinful Muslims tortured you.
Texts Texts 38-39
"Listen. Listen, O Haridasa. When the Muslims beat you in village after village, and I saw how you were suffering, I took my cakra and came down from Vaikuntha to sever their necks.
"Even though they were beating you to end your life, in your heart you were concerned for their welfare.
"You did not see that they were trying to kill you. In your heart you only saw them as good people.
"Because you saw them as good people, I had no power to act against them. My cakra became powerless.
"Because of your dfesire, I could not kill them. Seeing how they were ferociously beating you, I fell on your back.
"The blows meant for you I took on My body. The marks are still there. I do not lie.
"Whatever other reasons made Me come to this world, I quickly came because I could not tolerate that you were suffering.
"Advaita always sings My glories. My Nada knew the truth about you."
The Lord knows how to glorify His devotees. What will He not say, what will He not do for their sake?
For His devotees' sake the Lord will swallow a blazing fire. The Lord yearns to became the servant of His devotees.
Lord Krishna does not know anything but His devotees. He does not think even the endless universes are equal to one of His devotees.
Anyone who is not pleased with the devotees of Lord Krishna is a wretched sinner. His past must be full of sins.
O my brothers, with your own eyes please see the glories of the devotees, glories Lord Gauranga Himself described to Haridasa.
Hearing from the Lord's own mouth the description of His great mercy, Haridasa at once fell unconscious.
His external consciousness fled far away, Haridasa rested on the ground. He was plunged in bliss. He did not breathe for even half a sesame seed of time.
Then the Lord said, "Rise. Rise, O My Haridasa.Fulfilling your desire, gaze at My powers and opulences.
With the Lord's words, Haridasa regained external consciousness. Gazing at the Lord's form, he wept.
He fell to the ground and rolled about in the courtyard. One moment he sighed, and another moment he fainted.
Great ecstasy filled Haridasa's body. Although Lord Gauranga tried to pacify him, Haridasa would not be pacified.
Haridasa said, " O father Visvambhara, O master, O Lord of the universes, please be merciful to this sinner. I fall down before You.
"I have no good qualities. I am lowly and degraded. I am outside varnasrama. O Lord, how can I describe Your pastimes and glories?
"By seeing me one becomes sinful. By touching me one must bathe. O Lord, how can I describe Your glories?
Texts Texts 61-62
"This truth You have spoken with Your own mouth: You will never abandon a person who remembers Your feet, even if he is like a worm or an insect. However, You push down even a great king if he does not remember Your feet.
"With these words You do not describe me, for I never remember You. You protect even the most fallen person who remembers You.
"In the middle of the assembly the sinners Duryodhana and Duhsasana tried to disrobe Draupadi.
"In that dangerous situation, she remembered You. Because she remembered You, You entered her garments.
"Because she remembered You, her garments became limitless. The sinful-hearted people could not understand how this all happened.
"One day some witches surrounded Goddess Parvati and trued to eat her. She remembered You.
"Because she remembered You, You suddenly appeared there, punished the witches, and protected Your devotee.
"O father, even though I am a sinner who never remembers You, please give me shelter at Your feet.
"With poison, snakes, fire, water, and stones the demon Hiranyakasipu tried to kill Prahlada.
"Prahlada always remembered Your feet. By the power of that memory, he was freed from all sufferings.
"You broke the teeth of some of the attackers and destroyed the power of others. Because Prahlada remembered You, You appeared before him.
"Afraid of Dyrvasa, the Pandavas remembered You. Out of kindness to them, You suddenly appeared before their eyes.
"You said, `Yudhishthira, don't worry. Look. Look. I am here. I will feed the sages. You just sit down.'
"One crumâ of vegetable remained in the pot. To protect Your servants, You happily ate it.
"Their bellies suddenly swelling as they bathed, the sages fled in fear.
"Thus, by the power of remembering You, the Pandavas were rescued, Thus remembering You brings a very wonderful result.
"By always remembering You, everyone becomes saintly. This is not surprising. You deliver all who remember You.
"Ajamila was very sinful. No one was sinful like him. Still, by remembering You, he attained glory without limit.
"Terrified of the Yamadutas, he lovingly looked at his son's face. By calling out his son's name, he remembered the form of Lord Narayana.
"When he remembered You, his great danger broke into pieces. This is not surprising. The devotees' memory of You brings all good fortune.
"O Lord, please don't reject me, even though I never remember Your feet.
"How did I become qualified to see You? O Lord, I wish only one boon. I do not wish anything but this one boon."
Then Lord Gauranga said, "Speak. Speak. There is nothing I will not give you."
Folding his hands, Haridasa said to the Lord, "Lord, I am very unfortunate. Still, I have a very great desire.
"I wish that my food will be the remnants of what was eaten by the servants who worship Your feet.
"Let that be my worship birth after birth. Let Your devotees' remnants be my property. Let this be the duty prescribed by my birth.
"By birth I am sinful. That is why I do not remember You. Therefore please make my life successful by allowing me to eat the remnants left by Your servants.
"An offense stays in my heart. I yearn to be an exalted and important person. Such a desire is not right for me.
"O Lord, O master, O father Visvambhara, I am like a dead man. Please forgive my offense.
"O son of Saci, O father, please be merciful to me. Please make me into a dog and keep me in Your devotee's home."
Haridasa was filled with love and devotion to the Lord. Again and again he begged with plaintive words. His desire was not fulfilled.
Texts Texts 93-94
Then Lord Gauranga said, "Listen. Listen, O My Haridasa. Anyone who sits down with you, or who talks with you for even half a sesame seed of time will certainly attain Me. It will not be otherwise.
"Anyone who has faith in you has faith in Me also. I stay always in your body.
"You are My master, and I am your servant. You keep Me always imprisoned within your heart.
"I give you the gift that without offense you will devotedly serve Me and all the Vaishnavas."
When the Lord gave this boon to Haridasa, a great sound of "Jaya! Jaya!" at once arose.
High birth, noble family, pious deeds, and material riches will not help anyone attain the great wealth of pure love for Lord Krishna. Only an intense desaire to attain it, and nothing else, will help one attain the great wealth of pure love for the Lord.
A Vaishnava may take birth in any family. Why not? All the scriptures declare that a Vaishnava is the best of persons.
The evidence of this is Haridasa, who was born in a Mulsim family. He saw the Lord's powers and opulences, opulences even Brahma and the demigods cannot see.
Anyone who thinks a Vaishnava belongs to a certain caste is a sinner. He is pushed into sinful wombs lifetime after lifetime. In this way he suffers.
Anyone who hears these prayers of Haridasa Thakura will certainly attain a great wealth of pure love for Lord Krishna.
These are not my words. All the scriptures say it. Anyone who hears narrations of the devotees activities attains pure devotion for Lord Krishna.
Glory, glory to the great devotee Haridasa Thakura! By remembering him a person destroys all his sins.
One person said, "Haridasa is like Brahma". Another person said, "He is like Prahlada."
In every way Haridasa was a great devotee of the Lord. He enjoyed pastimes with Lord Gauranga and His associates.
Brahma and Siva are always happy at heart to associate with devotees like Haridasa.
The demigods yearn to touch Haridasa. Goddess Ganga yearns that Haridasa will enter her waters.
What to speak of his touch, even the sight of Haridasa cuts apart the beginningless ropes of karma that bind all conditioned souls.
As Prahlada was a "demon", and as Hanuman was a "monkey", so Haridasa was "born in a low family".
Haridasa wept. Murari and Shridhara wept. Smiling, Lord Gauranga chewed betelnuts.
