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:
Even if you practice with devotion and attachment, you don’t get bhava so easily. This is because of your unfavorable samskaras called anarthas. You have to take responsibility for and clean up your anarthas. Anarthas take your mind away from devotion.
