sri-caitanya-mahaprabhuSo it is not so easy to understand Sri Krsna. Manusyanam sahasresu kascid yatati siddhaye, yatatam api siddhanam: (BG. 7.3) “Those who have endeavored for perfection of life, out of many such persons, one can hardly understand Krsna.” It is not so easy. But it is by Krsna’s grace. Krsna being very compassionate with these fallen souls of this age, He appeared as Lord Caitanya and distributed Krsna. That is His prerogative. That is His right. If Krsna wants to distribute Himself freely, that is a different thing. Otherwise, it is not so easy to understand Krsna. Just like, to earn one million dollar is not so easy. But if you are fortunate, you meet somebody who can distribute million dollars at a time that is a different thing. Therefore Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu was recognized by Rupa Gosvami, namo maha-vadanyaya krsna-prema-pradaya te: (Madhya 19.53) “My dear Lord, You are the most munificent of all incarnations. The other incarnations, people could not understand, but You are freely distributing Yourself.” Krsna-caitanya-namne. Krsnaya krsna-caitanya-namne gaura-tvise namah. Therefore we have to follow the footsteps of Rupa Gosvami, rupanuga. Then we can understand Lord Caitanya. And if we get favor of Lord Caitanya, we can very easily understand Krsna. This is the process.
