Shrila Prabhupada Teachings-Quotes 💐💐💐


Śrīla Prabhupāda said: Before departing Remuna, Madhavendra Puri made his respectful obeisances to Gopinathaji. Then he left for Puri and in course of time arrived there by foot. He saw the Deity of Jagannathaji, and in his ecstasy he danced, laughed and sang, and he actually fell down in transcendental happiness at seeing Jagannathaji. People all over Puri came to know about the arrival of Srila Madhavendra Puri, and they came to see him with all veneration. The nature of fame is such that it cannot be checked from its natural diffusion; it overcomes even one who does not want it. Srila Madhavendra Puri wanted to escape fame at Remuna, but as soon as he reached Puri it caught him Fame for devotion to God cannot, therefore, be restrained; it goes its own way unhindered and without extraneous endeavor. Although Madhavendra Puri did not like this atmosphere of fame, he was nevertheless obliged to remain in Puri because he was duty-bound to collect sandalwood for Sri Gopala. He therefore expressed his mission and disclosed the story of Gopala at Govardhana.
