A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada – Senapati Bhakta

A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada – Senapati Bhakta

Locana Dasa Thakura in his Caitanya Mangala (Sutra-khanda) mentions Srila Prabhupada (Lord Caitanya speaking of the reasons for His descent):

nama-guna-sankirtana vaisnavera shakti

prakasa karibe ami nija prema-bhakti

Chanting of the name & qualities of Krsna is the life & energy of the Vaisnavas. I will reveal these activities & rejuvenate pure devotional service unto Myself.

ei mate kali-papa karibe sanhara

sabe cala age pache na kara vichara

In this way I will destroy all the sins in Kali Yuga. So all of you, My associates, go ahead and take birth on the earthly planet before My advent and don’t remain behind.

ebe nama sankirtana tikshna khadaga laiya

antara asura jivera phelibe katiya

Taking the sharp sword of the congregational chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra, (nama-sankirtana) I will root out & destroy the demoniac mentality in the hearts of all the conditioned souls.

yadi papi chadi dharma dure dese yaya

mora senapati-bhakta yaibe tathaya

If some sinful people escape and giving up religious principles go to far off countries, then my Senapati Bhakta will come at that time to give them Krsna consciousness. (senapati – a military field commander, bhakta – a devotee. Lord Caitanya will empower His own devotee to spread Krsna Consciousness around the world.)
