sthÄvara-jaá¹ gama - movable and inert; dekhe - he sees; nÄ - not; dekhe - sees; tÄra - its; mÅ«rti - form; sarvatra - everywhere; haya - there is; nija - his own; iá¹£á¹a-deva - worshipable Lord; sphÅ«rti - manifestation.
Due to his deep ecstatic love for Ká¹á¹£á¹a, the mahÄ-bhÄgavata sees Ká¹á¹£á¹a everywhere and nothing else. This is confirmed in the Brahma-saá¹hitÄ (5.38): premÄÃ±jana-cchurita-bhakti-vilocanena santaá¸¥ sadaiva há¹dayeá¹£u vilokayanti.
As soon as a devotee sees something â be it movable or inert â he immediately remembers Ká¹á¹£á¹a. An advanced devotee is advanced in knowledge. This knowledge is very natural to a devotee, for he has already read in the Bhagavad-gÄ«tÄ how to awaken Ká¹á¹£á¹a consciousness. According to Lord Ká¹á¹£á¹a in the Bhagavad-gÄ«tÄ (7.8):
raso âham apsu kaunteya prabhÄsmi ÅaÅi-sÅ«ryayoá¸¥
praá¹avaá¸¥ sarva-vedeá¹£u Åabdaá¸¥ khe pauruá¹£aá¹ ná¹á¹£u
âO son of KuntÄ« [Arjuna], I am the taste of water, the light of the sun and the moon, the syllable oá¹ in the Vedic mantras; I am the sound in ether and ability in man.â
Thus when a devotee drinks water or any other liquid, he immediately remembers Ká¹á¹£á¹a. For a devotee there is no difficulty in awakening Ká¹á¹£á¹a consciousness twenty-four hours a day. Caitanya MahÄprabhu therefore says here:
sthÄvara jaá¹ gama dekhe nÄ dekhe tÄra mÅ«rti
sarvatra haya nija iá¹£á¹a-deva-sphÅ«rti
A saintly person, an advanced devotee, sees Ká¹á¹£á¹a twenty-four hours a day and nothing else. As far as movable and inert things are concerned, a devotee sees them all as transformations of Ká¹á¹£á¹aâs energy. As Lord Ká¹á¹£á¹a states in the Bhagavad-gÄ«tÄ (7.4):
bhÅ«mir Äpo ânalo vÄyuá¸¥ khaá¹ mano buddhir eva ca
ahaá¹ kÄra itÄ«yaá¹ me bhinnÄ praká¹tir aá¹£á¹adhÄ
âEarth, water, fire, air, ether, mind, intelligence and false ego â all together these eight constitute My separated material energies.â
Actually nothing is separate from Ká¹á¹£á¹a. When a devotee sees a tree, he knows that the tree is a combination of two energies â material and spiritual. The inferior energy, which is material, forms the body of the tree; however, within the tree is the living entity, the spiritual spark, which is part and parcel of Ká¹á¹£á¹a. This is the superior energy of Ká¹á¹£á¹a within this world. Whatever living thing we see is simply a combination of these two energies. When an advanced devotee thinks of these energies, he immediately understands that they are manifestations of the Supreme Lord. As soon as we see the sun rise in the morning, we arise and set about doing our morning duties. Similarly, as soon as a devotee sees the energy of the Lord, he immediately remembers Lord ÅrÄ« Ká¹á¹£á¹a. This is explained in this verse: sarvatra haya nija iá¹£á¹a-deva-sphÅ«rti.
A devotee who has purified his existence through devotional service sees only Ká¹á¹£á¹a in every step of life. This is also explained in the next verse, which is a quotation from ÅrÄ«mad-BhÄgavatam (11.2.45).
