Sri Caitanya-caritamrta- Adi-lila





There is no difference between the teachings of Lord Caitanya presented here  and the teachings of Lord Krsna in the Bhagavad-gita. The teachings of Lord  Caitanya are practical demonstrations of Lord Krsna's teachings. Lord Krsna's  ultimate instruction in the Bhagavad-gita is that everyone should surrender unto  Him, Lord Krsna. Krsna promises to take immediate charge of such a surrendered  soul. The Lord, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is already in charge of the  maintenance of this creation by virtue of His plenary expansion, Ksirodakasayi  Visnu, but this maintenance is not direct. However, when the Lord says that He  takes charge of His pure devotee, He actually takes direct charge. A pure  devotee is a soul who is forever surrendered to the Lord, just as a child is  surrendered to his parents or an animal to its master. In the surrendering  process, one should: (1) accept things favorable for discharging devotional  service, (2) reject things unfavorable, (3) believe firmly in the Lord's  protection, (4) feel exclusively dependent on the mercy of the Lord, (5) have no  interest separate from the interest of the Lord, and (6) always feel oneself  meek and humble.
