Ādi-līlāChapter 17: The Pastimes of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu in His Youth

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 17.64

prabhura śāpa-vārtā yei śune śraddhāvān

brahma-śāpa haite tāra haya paritrāṇa


prabhura — of the Lord; śāpa-vārtā — the incident of the curse; yei — anyone who; śune — hears; śraddhāvān — with affection; brahma-śāpa — cursing by a brāhmaṇa; haite — from; tāra — his; haya — becomes; paritrāṇa — deliverance.


Any faithful person who hears of this brāhmaṇa's cursing Lord Caitanya is delivered from all brahminical curses.


One should know with firm conviction that the Lord, being transcendental, is never subject to any curse or benediction. Only ordinary living entities are subjected to curses and the punishments of Yamarāja. As the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu is beyond such punishments and benedictions. When one understands this fact with faith and love, he personally becomes free from all curses uttered by brāhmaṇas or anyone else. This incident is not mentioned in the Caitanya-bhāgavata.
