Question: In his Hari Nāmamṛta Vyākaraṇa, in one of his vṛtti commentaries, Jīva Gosvāmī analyzes the declension of words “vaikuṇṭha-dhvas” and “vaikuṇṭha-sras”, which both mean “one who falls down from Vaikuṇṭha”. One may, of course, argue that the words refer to Jaya and Vijaya. But if they were indeed the only souls who fell down from Vaikuṇṭha, why would Jīva Gosvāmī make such an exceptional case into a generic grammatical rule?
Answer: Interesting question and I thank you for asking it. I have the following answers:
Disharmony is both outside and inside. Outside is visible – you face it all the time. But more important is the one inside of you, which drives you crazy. The question is how to make peace with yourself? If you can’t make your mind balanced, then you create disturbance to others. You create war all around you. What is inside your head, you create outside all around you.
