\"Always eager and devoted to the loud chanting of the holy names of Lord Hari, My eyes will be always beautified & filled with tears of bliss and the hairs of My body will stand erect when I will be agitated by transcendental happiness. In this way, I will give to the people the supreme gift of the science of devotional service unto Lord Krsna.\" - Gargya-smahita 46
The flood of love of Godhead distributed by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu swelled in all directions. Young men, old men, women, and children were all immersed in that inundation. The Krsna consciousness movement begun by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu will inundate the entire world and drown everyone, whether one be a gentleman, rogue, lame, invalid, or blind. (Cc. Adi 7.25,26)
In distributing love of Godhead, Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu and His associates did not consider who was fit and who was unfit, nor where such distribution should or should not take place. They made no such conditions. Rather, wherever they got the opportunity, the members of the Panca-tattva distributed love of Godhead. Although they plundered the storehouse of love of Godhead, ate and distributed its contents, there was no scarcity, for this wonderful storehouse is so complete that as the love is distributed, the supply increases hundreds of times. (Cc. Adi 7.23,24)
