The Greed of the LordA lecture by Sri Srimad Gour Govinda Swami Bhubaneswar, India, March 17, 1992 on The Appearance Day of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu
This wonderful lecture was first published in the Back to Godhead Magazine # 27-02, 1993, and is included in the book The Embankment of Separation published in 1996 by Gopal Jiu Publications.
Using the word `greed’ is very wonderful. Has anyone used this word, in this context, previously? No one has used it, but Svarūpa Dāmodara Gosvāmī did. Because of the development of this greed, Vrajarāja-nandana Kṛṣṇa became Śacīnandana Gaura Hari. Pūrṇa Brahma, the Complete Whole, who has no deficiency, who wants nothing, still develops greed. Wonderful! He is self-satisfied. He does not want anything, He lacks nothing. Then why has He such greed? You should understand its mystery, the tattva behind it. He who is paramānanda-maya, supremely blissful, and sac-cid-ānanda-maya, full of eternity, knowledge and bliss, He develops greed. But what type of greed, and for what? This is very wonderful.
