“Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura personally accepted this position of jhadudara, which literally means ‘sweeper’. Why did he assume that position? Because as a spiritual master, Bhaktivinoda Thakura wanted to ‘keep the market clean’.
In other words, spiritual masters and spiritual leaders must be constantly vigilant that philosophy and activities are kept in line with the tradition of the Krishna Consciousness movement, based on sadhu, sastra and Guru. Leaders have the responsibility to keep out dirt – speculations and contaminations – from Nama Hatta preaching.”
