|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 7: The Lord Begins His Tour of South India|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 7.152
śraddhā kari' ei līlā ye kare śravaṇa
acirāte milaye tāre caitanya-caraṇa
śraddhā kari' — with great faith; ei līlā — this pastime; ye — anyone; kare — does; śravaṇa — hearing; acirāte — very soon; milaye — meets; tāre — him; caitanya-caraṇa — the lotus feet of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu.
One who hears these pastimes of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu with great faith will surely very soon attain the lotus feet of Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu.
When a person actually revives his consciousness with thoughts of Kṛṣṇa by the mercy of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, he revives his spiritual life and becomes addicted to the service of the Lord. Only then can he act as an ācārya. In other words, everyone should engage in preaching, following in the footsteps of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. In this way one will be very much appreciated by Lord Kṛṣṇa and will quickly be recognized by Him. Actually a devotee of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu must engage in preaching in order to increase the followers of the Lord. By thus preaching actual Vedic knowledge all over the world, one will benefit all mankind.
