Prabhupāda: This is Caitanya Mahāprabhu's teaching. Govinda-vira . . .
- yugāyitaṁ nimeṣeṇa
- cakṣuṣā prāvṛṣāyitam
- śūnyāyitaṁ jagat sarvaṁ
- govinda-viraheṇa me
- CC Antya 20.39, Śikṣāṣṭaka 7)
This is the summit of bhajana, when one will be crying and there will be tears, torrently, and one will see everything as vacant for being separated from Govinda. That is the topmost summit of kṛṣṇa-bhajana.
- he rādhe vraja-devike ca lalite he nanda-sūno kutaḥ
- śrī-govardhana -(kalpa-) pādapa-tale kālindī-vane kutaḥ
- ghoṣantāv iti sarvato vraja-pure khedair mahā-vihvalau
- vande rūpa-sanātanau raghu-yugau śrī-jīva-gopālakau
- (Ṣaḍ-gosvāmy-aṣṭaka 8)
Hare Kṛṣṇa. Go on. Parīkṣit Mahārāja said, when he was sitting on the bank of the Ganges, prepared for meeting death within seven days, all the great personalities, sages, saints, kings, they came to see him. So he said that, "My dear brāhmins, here is Ganges, and you are also present here. So take me as your surrendered soul. I am surrendered to you. So at the present moment let that takṣaka, the snake-bird, or anything may come and bite. I don't care for it. Please go on with the kṛṣṇa-kathā. Go on with your kṛṣṇa-kathā." Yes.
Dr. Patel: Then came Śukadeva. That is the point Śukadeva comes.
Prabhupāda: No, Śukadeva later on came.
Dr. Patel: Yes, after that.
Prabhupāda: Yes. So we should be always engaged in kṛṣṇa-kathā. Oh, danger is always there. This is a place . . .
Dr. Patel: You must act like Parīkṣit.
Prabhupāda: You don't care for danger. You go on chanting. That's all. Padaṁ padaṁ yad vipadām (SB 10.14.58). This is a place where padaṁ padaṁ vipadām: every step there is danger. How much dangerous position you'll save? Better go on chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa, that's all.
