PQPA—6. The Perfect Devotee———-February 29, 1972, evening

692) Whether I know even Jesus Christ also suffered! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————- [“I offer my respectful obeisances unto all the Vaisnava devotees of the Lord. They are just like desire trees who can fulfill the desires of everyone, and they are full of compassion for the fallen conditioned souls.”] He takes responsibility for all the fallen souls. That idea is also in the Bible. Jesus Christ took all the sinful reactions of the people and sacrificed his life. That is the responsibility of a spiritual master. Because Krsna is Krsna, He is apäpa-viddha—He cannot be attacked by sinful reactions. But a living entity is sometimes subjected to their influence because he is so small. Big fire, small fire. If you put some big thing in a small fire, the fire itself may be extinguished. But in a big fire, whatever you put in is all right. The big fire can consume anything.

Bob: Christ’s suffering was of that nature?

Srila Prabhupäda: Mm-m?

Bob: Was Christ’s suffering—

Srila Prabhupäda: That I have already explained. He took the sinful reactions of all the people. Therefore he suffered. ————————-
