“In the previous ages, the Lord was carrying weapons. When the devas approached Caitanya Mahaprabhu when He was still in the womb of His mother, they were glorifying Him that, in every incarnation You come, and You deliver the demons and You deliver Your devotees.
The demons are delivered by getting killed by the Lord and then they are given moksha. They merge into the light of the Lord. The devotees of the Lord are given His shelter, and the achieve Vaikunta.
But in the incarnation of Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the Lord doesn’t carry any weapons of violence. His weapons are only weapons of Love, of Bhajan.
Mrdangas, Kartals, Srimad Bhavagat, His personal beauty, His associates, His festivals…these are all transcendental weapons of the Lord. But they are weapons to kill our demoniac nature! The weapons are not to kill us, but the weapons to kill our demoniac nature only…leaving the devotional nature. That is the special mercy of Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
So we see in all the incarnations They are very affectionate to the devotees, but Caitanya Mahaprabhu is the personified…total compassion! Even Jagai-Madhai beat Lord Nithyananda, still Lord Nithyananda gave them His mercy. Who can be more merciful? ”HH Jayapataka Swami Lecture: SB 5.8.17
