Title: Real tears by chilly powder

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2007-02-14 22:17:22


There was a person who came to assembly of devotees to hear Hari-katha. In

that assembly devotees often manifested different symptoms of ecstasy, but

heart of this particular person was not touched even after many days of

hearing Hari-katha and he felt bad. Then one day he came to class and threw

some red-chili powder into his eyes. The lecturer noticed the man was crying

profusely. After the lecture the Vaishnava who gave the lecture called him and said: "Very nice. Scriptures say that those senses which refuse to practise

Krishna-bhajana should be punished. Today you have put this into practise!

Shrimad-Bhagavatam says that it is useless to keep those senses which are not not engaged in service of the Lord."  After hearing this a stream of real tears came from his eyes. Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!
