SIGNIFICADO: Este pasaje nos indica que, puesto que el gobernador musulmán era un borracho (madyapa), en condiciones normales no habría habido posibilidad de que cambiase. Pero el Señor Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu podía despertar la conciencia de Kṛṣṇa en la mente de cualquiera. Por el simple hecho de recordar el santo nombre de Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu o de visitarle, podemos liberarnos de la existencia material. El movimiento para la conciencia de Kṛṣṇa se está propagando por todo el mundo, pero, sin la gracia de Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, ni un solo yavana o mleccha adicto a la bebida habría cambiado hasta aceptar el proceso de conciencia de Kṛṣṇa. La gente suele asombrarse de ver a tantos miles de occidentales convertidos al vaiṣṇavismo. Por lo general, los occidentales son adictos a comer carne, a beber, a los juegos de azar y a la vida sexual ilícita; por lo tanto, es asombroso que acepten la conciencia de Kṛṣṇa. Esto causa verdadero asombro sobre todo en la India. La respuesta, sin embargo, se da en este verso: darśana-smaraṇe yāṅra jagat tārila. Ese cambio es posible por el hecho de recordar a Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Los devotos occidentales cantan con gran sinceridad los santos nombres de Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu y de Sus devotos más íntimos: śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya prabhu-nityānanda śrī-advaita gadādhara śrīvāsādi-gaura-bhakta-vṛnda. Por la misericordia de Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu y de Sus devotos personales, la gente se está purificando y su conciencia pasa de māyā a Kṛṣṇa.

From this we can understand that since the Muslim governor was a drunkard (madyapa), ordinarily there would have been no chance that he would change. But Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu could turn anyone’s mind to Kṛṣṇa consciousness. One can be delivered from material existence simply by remembering Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s holy name or by visiting Him. This Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is being spread throughout the world, but not even one yavana or mleccha addicted to drinking could have changed and accepted Kṛṣṇa consciousness without Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s grace. People are often astonished to see many thousands of Westerners converted to Vaiṣṇavism. Generally Westerners are addicted to meat-eating, drinking, gambling and illicit sex; therefore their taking up Kṛṣṇa consciousness is astonishing. In India, especially, there is much astonishment at this. The answer, however, is given here: darśana-smaraṇe yāṅra jagat tārila. This change is made possible simply by the remembrance of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. The Western devotees are very sincerely chanting the holy names of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and His associates: śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya prabhu-nityānanda śrī-advaita gadādhara śrīvāsādi-gaura-bhakta-vṛnda. By the mercy of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and His associates, people are being purified and their consciousness directed from māyā to Kṛṣṇa.

La palabra viśvāsa se refiere a un secretario. Ese título, por lo general, es propio de la casta kāyastha de la comunidad hindú. En Bengala, los kāyasthas utilizan todavía el título de viśvāsa. La palabra viśvāsa significa «fiel», y un viśvāsī es una persona en quien se puede confiar. Śrī Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura explica que durante el reinado musulmán en Bengala existía una secretaría con el título de viśvāsa-khānā. La oficina de viśvāsa-khāna era una secretaría en que sólo se empleaban a las personas de la máxima confianza. Se les escogía entre la comunidad kāyastha, comunidad que todavía hoy es muy experta en gestiones administrativas y gubernativas. El secretario, el viśvāsa-khānā, suele ser un sirviente muy fiel y de plena confianza. Se recurría a esos funcionarios siempre que había necesidad de realizar algún servicio muy confidencial.

The word viśvāsa refers to a secretary. This title is generally found among the kāyastha caste in the Hindu community. In Bengal, the title viśvāsa is still used by the kāyasthas. The word viśvāsa means “faithful,” and a viśvāsī is a person in whom one can place faith. Śrī Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura states that during the Muslim reign in Bengal, there was a secretariat entitled viśvāsa-khānā. The office of viśvāsa-khānā was a secretariat office in which only the most reliable people were employed. They were elected from the kāyastha community, a community that is still very expert in managing business and government affairs. The secretariat, or viśvāsa-khānā, is generally a very reliable and faithful servant. Whenever some confidential service was needed, these officers were employed.
