(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Helsinki, 2011)

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu was experiencing anxiety, because he was considering that so many conditioned souls were just totally covered over, and acting very sinful. They were not interested in chanting the holy name:

“So then how can we deliver these?”

Caitanya Mahaprabhu was in anxiety about it. So then Haridasa Thakura first gave the example of a muslim who just called out:

“Hare Rama, Hare Rama.”

And then he was speaking about Ajamila who at the end of his life was chanting the name of ‘Narayana’. But not with any intention to chant the name of the Lord but just calling his son, who was named ‘Narayana’. In this way Haridasa said:

“All these sinful men will be delivered. All these living beings are being delivered by some arrangement of the holy name!”

So we can understand that Krishna has manifested the holy name in these languages – that is Krishna’s arrangement, that the holy name is somehow or other part of our languages. Like for example the Dutch word for window is ‘ram’. We will always say ‘ram’. Close that ‘ram’……………..who will come to clean the ‘ram’. Like this it comes again and again in our language and in every language such words are hidden!

That is not a coincidence, since that is the arrangement of Krishna!
