975) Whether I know how a maha-bhagavata feels! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
————————– But when you are raised to the highest platform of devotional service, then there is no more dvisatsu. No more friend, no more dvisat. Everyone, a maha-bhagavata sees that “Everyone is engaged in the service of the Lord, except myself.” That is maha-bhagavatas vision. But we should not imitate that. Just like I was, I was giving the example of Caitanya-caritamrta author, Krsnadasa Kaviraja Gosvami. He’s speaking that
jagai madhai haite muni se papistha
purisera kita muni se lagistha
He’s not imitating, or he’s speaking falsely. He feels like that. A maha-bhagavata feels like that, that “I am the lowest.” Just like Bhaktivinoda Thakura has sung, amara jivana sada pape rata nahika punyera lesa (?). He says like that, that “My life is always engaged in sinful activities. I’ve not a trace of pious activity.” Amara jivana sada ape rata nahika punyera lesa. “I have given so much distress to all other living entities.” He’s representing common man. But he’s feeling like that. It is not that artificially speaking. He’s feeling like that. ————-
