947) Whether I know only Caitanya Mahaprabhu can give krsna-prema! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————————- So namo maha-vadanyaya. This is the first verse, sloka uttered by Srila Rupa Gosvami when he met Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu at Prayaga, modern Allahabad. Prayaga is also named there. So he offered his prayer like this: namo maha-vadanyaya krsna-prema-pradaya te [Cc. Madhya 19.53]. He understood that “Here is the incarnation of God who is the most munificent.” Mu…, most munificent. Other incarnation of God… Even Krsna could not give krsna-prema. He simply ordered that “You surrender unto Me.” Not that “You take Krsna, love of Krsna.” No. He did not give. ——————–
