SIGNIFICADO: En su Anubhāṣya, Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura escribe que, en opinión de Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, la govardhana-śilā, la piedra de la colina de Govardhana, era directamente la forma de Kṛṣṇa, el hijo de Mahārāja Nanda. El Señor tuvo la piedra consigo durante tres años, después de los cuales hizo despertar en el corazón de Raghunātha dāsa el servicio devocional por aquella piedra. A continuación, el Señor dio la piedra a Raghunātha dāsa, aceptándole como uno de Sus sirvientes más íntimos. Sin embargo, hay gente envidiosa que sostiene que Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu dio la piedra de Govardhana a Raghunātha dāsa en lugar de concederle el derecho de adorar directamente a la Deidad porque Raghunātha dāsa no había nacido en familia de brāhmaṇas. Esa mentalidad es nārakī, infernal. Como afirma el Padma Purāṇa: arcye viṣṇau śilā-dhīr guruṣu nara-matir vaiṣṇave jāti-buddhiḥ... yasya vā nārakī saḥ. Si alguien piensa que la adorable śālagrāma-śilā es una simple piedra, que el maestro espiritual es un ser humano corriente, o que un vaiṣṇava puro que predica el culto del bhakti por todo el mundo es miembro de una determinada casta o división material de la sociedad, se le considera un nārakī, un candidato a la vida infernal. Cuando Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu enseñó que la govardhana-śilā, la piedra de Govardhana, no es diferente del cuerpo de Śrī Kṛṣṇa, la Suprema Personalidad de Dios, indirectamente estaba aconsejando a esos necios que no deben sentir envidia del vaiṣṇava que pertenece a una casta o secta diferente. Al vaiṣṇava se le debe considerar trascendental. De ese modo, podemos salvarnos; de lo contrario, es seguro que nos espera una vida infernal.

Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura writes in his Anubhāṣya that in the opinion of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, the govardhana-śilā, the stone from Govardhana Hill, was directly the form of Kṛṣṇa, the son of Mahārāja Nanda. The Lord used the stone for three years, and then in the heart of Raghunātha dāsa the Lord awakened devotional service to the stone. The Lord then gave the stone to Raghunātha dāsa, accepting him as one of His most confidential servants. However, some envious people conclude that because Raghunātha dāsa had not taken birth in the family of a brāhmaṇa, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu did not give him the right to worship the Deity directly but instead gave him a stone from Govardhana. This kind of thought is nārakī, or hellish. As stated in the Padma Purāṇa, arcye viṣṇau śilā-dhīr guruṣu nara-matir vaiṣṇave jāti-buddhiḥ...yasya vā nārakī saḥ. If one thinks that the worshipable śālagrāma-śilā is a mere stone, that the spiritual master is an ordinary human being or that a pure Vaiṣṇava preaching the bhakti cult all over the world is a member of a particular caste or material division of society, he is considered a nārakī, a candidate for hellish life. When Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu instructed that the govardhana-śilā, the stone taken from Govardhana, is nondifferent from the body of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, He indirectly advised such foolish persons that one should not be envious of a Vaiṣṇava who belongs to a different caste or sect. One should accept a Vaiṣṇava as transcendental. In this way one can be saved; otherwise, one is surely awaiting a hellish life.
