CC Adi 12.38

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


viśvāsere kahe,—tumi baḍa bhāgyavān
tomāre karila daṇḍa prabhu bhagavān


viśvāsere—unto Kamalākānta Viśvāsa; kahe—said; tumi—you; baḍa—very; bhāgyavān—fortunate; tomāre—unto you; karila—did; daṇḍa—punishment; prabhu—the Lord; bhagavān—the Supreme Personality of Godhead.


Seeing Kamalākānta Viśvāsa unhappy, Advaita Ācārya Prabhu told him, “You are greatly fortunate to have been punished by the Supreme Lord, the Personality of Godhead, Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu.


This is an authoritative judgment by Śrī Advaita Prabhu. He clearly advises that one should not be unhappy when reverses come upon him by the order of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. A devotee should always be happy to receive the fortune awarded him by the Supreme Lord, which seems pleasant or unpleasant according to one’s judgment.
