ÅrÄ«la SanÄtana GosvÄmÄ« has advised us to hear about Ká¹á¹£á¹a from a Vaiá¹£á¹ava. He has explicitly forbidden us to hear from an avaiá¹£á¹ava.
avaiá¹£á¹ava-mukhodgÄ«rá¹aá¹ pÅ«taá¹ hari-kathÄmá¹tam
Åravaá¹aá¹ naiva kartavyaá¹ sarpocchiá¹£á¹aá¹ yathÄ payaá¸¥
Thus quoting from Padma PurÄá¹a, ÅrÄ«la SanÄtana GosvÄmÄ« warns that one should not hear anything about Ká¹á¹£á¹a from an avaiá¹£á¹ava, however great a mundane scholar he may be. Milk touched by the lips of a serpent has poisonous effects; similarly, talks about Ká¹á¹£á¹a given by an avaiá¹£á¹ava are also poisonous. However, because a Vaiá¹£á¹ava is surrendered to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, his talks are spiritually potent. In the Bhagavad-gÄ«tÄ (10.10) the Supreme Lord says:
teá¹£Äá¹ satata-yuktÄnÄá¹ bhajatÄá¹ prÄ«ti-pÅ«rvakam
dadÄmi buddhi-yogaá¹ taá¹ yena mÄm upayÄnti te
âTo those who are constantly devoted to worshiping Me with love, I give the understanding by which they can come to Me.â When a pure Vaiá¹£á¹ava speaks, he speaks perfectly. How is this? His speech is managed by Ká¹á¹£á¹a Himself from within the heart. ÅrÄ«la RÄmÄnanda RÄya accepts this benediction from ÅrÄ« Caitanya MahÄprabhu; therefore he admits that whatever he was speaking was not derived from his own intelligence. Rather, everything was coming from ÅrÄ« Caitanya MahÄprabhu. According to the Bhagavad-gÄ«tÄ (15.15):
sarvasya cÄhaá¹ há¹di sanniviá¹£á¹o
mattaá¸¥ smá¹tir jÃ±Änam apohanaá¹ ca
vedaiÅ ca sarvair aham eva vedyo
vedÄnta-ká¹d veda-vid eva cÄham
âI am seated in everyoneâs heart, and from Me come remembrance, knowledge and forgetfulness. By all the Vedas, I am to be known. Indeed I am the compiler of the VedÄnta, and I am the knower of the Vedas.â
All intelligence emanates from the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the Supersoul within the heart of everyone. Nondevotees want to ask the Supreme Lord for sense gratification; therefore nondevotees come under the influence of mÄyÄ, the illusory energy. A devotee, however, is directed by the Supreme Personality of Godhead and comes under the influence of yogamÄyÄ. Consequently there is a gulf of difference between statements made by a devotee and those made by a nondevotee.
