|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 9: The Desire Tree of Devotional Service|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 9.29
māge vā nā māge keha, pātra vā apātra
ihāra vicāra nāhi jāne, deya mātra
māge — begs; vā — or; nā — not; māge — begs; keha — anyone; pātra — candidate; vā — or; apātra — not a candidate; ihāra — of this; vicāra — consideration; nāhi — does not; jāne — know; deya — gives; mātra — only.
Not considering who asked for it and who did not, nor who was fit and who unfit to receive it, Caitanya Mahāprabhu distributed the fruit of devotional service.
This is the sum and substance of Lord Caitanya's sańkīrtana movement. There is no distinction made between those who are fit and those who are not fit to hear or take part in the sańkīrtana movement. It should therefore be preached without discrimination. The only purpose of the preachers of the sańkīrtana movement must be to go on preaching without restriction. That is the way in which Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu introduced this sańkīrtana movement to the world.
