Title: Devotees are more kind

User: Gouranga dasa          Date: 2007-05-14 18:00:41


Dear Swami Gauranga Pada, And all Vaisnavas, Please accept my respectful obeisances, All glories to Srila Prabhupada!



Maharaja, In Bhagavad Gita chapter 3 verse 29 purport Srila Prabhupada states that


"Men who are ignorant cannot appreciate activities in Kr?s?n?a consciousness, and therefore Lord Kr?s?n?a advises us not to disturb them and simply waste valuable time. But the devotees of the Lord are more kind than the Lord because they understand the purpose of the Lord."


My question is that if the Jivas possess minute quantities of Krishnas Qualities, how are we to understand that the devotees are More Kind than the Lord?



Your servant

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Pranams  and Blessings ! Nice question. The spiritually advanced devotee jivas may have a small quantity of Lord Gauranga Krishna's divine qualities but what they have is their strong relationship with the Lord by which they are very dear to the Lord. So the Lord Himself does what they desire. The Lord has given them blanket permission to distribute His love to anyone and everyone they want. And when they desire for a specific soul to attain prema, then the Lord situated in everyone's heart gives that soul prema on their behalf. So they are actually more powerful than the Lord because they always have the most powerful Lord as their order carrier who fulfills what they desire. So the pure devotees have the infinitely powerful Lord as their servant (who is actually their Master) and thus they can be wondrously merciful to all souls sometimes even more than the Lord.
