SB- 6.2.4—Behave Ideally Or Don’t Preach– Vrndävana, September 8, 1975
709) Whther I know what rajarsi means! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——————– Ideal class of men therefore needed in the society. Therefore Vedic society is divided—ideal men: the brähmanas. Brähmana, ksatriya, vaisya, südra. The brähmana, the saintly person, the sannyäsi, the räjarsi. This is required. Imam räjarsayo viduh [Bg. 4.2]. In the Bhagavad-gitä it is said that the Bhagavad-gitä was taught to the räjarsi, not to the third-class men. Räjarsi, räja and rsi at the same time. Although king, but they were saintly king, just like Mahäräja Yudhisthira, the ideal king. Bhagavän, Rämacandra, the ideal king, ideal king, so ideal that because some citizen criticized that “Lord Rämacandara, King Rämacandra, has accepted His wife who was kidnapped by Rävana,” and he was a low-class man, washerman, and still, the king, Lord Rämacandra, thought that “My citizens are criticizing Me.” Immediately He separated Laksmi-devi, Sitä. This is ideal king, no criticism from the citizen, even Lord Rämacandra. This is called räjarsi. ———————–——————–
