2497) Whether I know how steady Haridasa Thakura is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————– As Yamunacarya says, that tadavadhi mama cetah krsna-pa…, yadavadhi mama cetah krsna-padaravindo... So to a devotee… Just like Haridasa Thakura. You know the story of Haridasa Thakura. Haridasa Thakura was young man, and the Maya, and a prostitute, they came, young prostitute, nicely dressed, and proposed her desire. Haridasa Thakura said, “Yes, please sit down. I shall fulfill your desire. Let me finish my chanting.” Just see. At dead of night, a young man, Haridasa Thakura; in front, there is a beautiful young girl; there is nobody else; and she’s proposing. But still, he’s steady, chanting Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare. So Cupid cannot pierce. This is the example. ———————
