The devotee always wants to make the Lord’s desire manifest. Just like Sriman Mahaprabhu gave order to the six Goswamis, especially to Sri Rupa and Sanatana to go to Vrindavan and to excavate the lost tirtha and to write profuse literatures on Bhakti. And they have written lakhs and lakhs of slokas of literatures.
So Bhakti Siddhantha Saraswati Thakur, he sometimes would say, “What kind of Bhakta is this who simply wants to chant and does not want to deliver the fallen souls?” When Mahaprabhu wants that these people be delivered, then what kind of Vaishnavas simply sit and worry about or just try to do his own bhajana without trying to deliver the others?
And practically it has been demonstrated that those who take up the order of Mahaprabhu, make very quick advancement, while others drag their feet. So, especially, you see, one has to follow the instructions of a spiritual master.
And Mahaprabhu, it has been said in the Caitanya Caritamrita that:
krishna-shakti vina nahe tara pravartana
That in this Kali yuga the preaching of harinama sankirtan is the yuga dharma or religious principle of this age. And without Krishna’s mercy it cannot be spread. In other words who ever can spread this movement of Mahaprabhu’s sankirtan, he is to be known as empowered.HH Jayapataka Swami Lecture – Srimad Bhagavatam
