Giriraj Swami read and commented on Srila Prabhupada’s purport to the song Manah-siksa, “Teachings to the Mind,” from Prarthana by Srila Narottama dasa Thakura.

“On the order of his spiritual master and in the mood of compassion, Srila Prabhupada came and faced so many dangers and took so many risks. Thus he became the object of the utmost mercy of the Lord and the parampara. Based on his own faith and realization, he wanted to engage his followers in the same mood of selfless service to the spiritual master, the parampara, and the fallen souls. Therefore he encapsulated volumes and volumes of philosophy–Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Sri Caitanya-bhagavata, the songs of the previous acaryas–in this simple aphorism:

“‘To approach Sri Sri Radha-Krishna, one must get the mercy of Lord Caitanya; to get the mercy of Lord Caitanya, one must get the mercy of Lord Nityananda; and to get the mercy of Lord Nityananda, one must approach people like Jagai and Madhai.'”
