SB- 6.2.4—Behave Ideally Or Don’t Preach– Vrndävana, September 8, 1975
723) Whether I know why I should not hear Bhagavatam from a professional Bhagavata! Taught By Srila Prabhupada!
————— There are two bhägavatas: grantha-bhägavata and the man bhägavata. So therefore Caitanya Mahäprabhu’s secretary, Svarüpa Dämodara, he recommended a brähmana. He came to see him, writing something that was full of mistakes. Then he chastised him that “You do not know what is what. You have tried to explain Bhägavata.” But when the brähmana was submissively hearing and tolerated the chastisement, then he gave the advice, bhägavata porä giyä bhägavata-sthäne: “Go. Hear Bhägavata from a person whose life is Bhägavata.” Bhägavata parä giyä bhägavata-sthäne. Not the professional bhägavata. They are aiming Therefore they immediately open the räsa-lilä chapter and explain it very nicely. People will like: “Oh, Krsna and myself, the same. He is also embracing the young girl. I shall now try to find out young girl.” This is going on. They are going to hell by hearing Bhägavatam from these rascal professionals. ————
