by Shrila Gopala Bhatta Gosvami

 

Also in the Padma Purana, the sage Bhrigu says to the Lord-

 

aho rupam aho shilam-
aho shastir-aho daya
aho sunirmala kshantir-
aho sattvam guna hareh

 

“O Hari, Your form, nature, chastisement, mercy, purity, tolerance, munificent qualities are all wonderful.”

 

naisargikam shubham sattvam
tavaiva gunavaridhe
nanyesham vidyate kincit
sarvesham tridivoikasam

 

“O ocean of good qualities, Your nature is auspicious and transcendental. When You are in the midst of all the demigods, they become insignificant.”

 

brahmanyash ca sharanyash ca
tvameva purushottama
brahmananam tvamevesho
nanyah pujah surah kvacit

 

“O Purushottama! You are the Absolute Truth, the Supreme Shelter, the Lord of the brahmanas. One should never worship any other god at any time.”

 

yeharcchayanti surananyan
tvam vina purushottamam
te pashanda-tvamapannah
sarva-loka-vigarhitah

 

“O Purushottama! If someone neglects Your worship and instead worships another deity, that person becomes a candala and is deemed as most abominable in all the worlds.”

 

vipranam vedavidysham
tvamevejyo janardana
nanyah kashcit suranantam
pujaniyohagrajanmanam

 

“O Janardana! Those brahmanas well versed in the scriptures worship You. Nobody should worship the multitudes of demigods.”

 

ashuddha brahma-rudradya
rajas-tamo-vimishritah
tvam shuddha-sattva-gunavan
pujaniyoha-grajanmanam

 

“Other demigods such as Brahma and Rudra are not completely pure and are tainted by the modes of passion and ignorance. However, You are made up of pure goodness and therefore the brahmanas worship You.”

 

tvat padasalilam sevyam
pitrinanca divoikasam
sarvesham bhusuranam ca
muktidam kalmashapaham

 

“By taking the water that has bathed Your lotus feet, all the sins of the pitris, demigods and brahmanas can be destroyed and they can achieve liberation.

 

tvad-bhuktocchishta shesham vai
pitrinam ca divoikasam
bhusuranam ca sevyam syat
nanyeshatam tu kadacana

 

“Your remnants are accepted even by the pitris, demigods and brahmanas, but the remnants of other persons should not be taken.”

 

itaresham tu devanam
annam pushpam jaladikam
asprishyam tu bhavet sarvam
nirmalyam suraya samam

 

“Things such as rice, flowers, water and other items that are offered to the demigods should not be touched.”

 

tasmadaiva brahmano nityam
pujayitva sanatanam
ta tirtham bhuktamannanca
bhaje tairanisham budhah

 

“Therefore, a knowledgable brahmana always worships the Eternal Lord and respects His mahaprasada and the transcendental water that has bathed His feet.”

 

nanya-devam niriksheta
brahmano na ca pujayet
nanya prasadam bhunjita
nanya-dayatanam vishet

 

“A brahmana should not look at the deities of the demigods neither should he worship them. He should not partake of their remnants, nor should he enter their temples.”

 

taddadati hi yo vipra
pitrinam shraddha-karmani
tad bhuktam annam tirthanca
tat sarvam viphalam bhavet

 

“That brahmana that honours the forefathers by performing shraddha rites, and who eats the remnants of the devas and drinks the water that has washed their feet, accrues no merit whatsoever.”

 

kalpa-koti sahasrani
kalpa-koti shatani ca
patanti pitaras tasya
narake puyashonite

 

“That brahmanas’ forefathers remain in the hellish planets, submerged in lakes full of blood and pus for one hundred thousand koti kalpas.”

 

niveditam bhava vibho
yo juhoti dadati va
devatanans ca pitrinam-
anastyam dhruvamashnu te

 

“That person who offers Your remnants in sacrifice to the demigods and to the pitris, certainly recieves infinite benefit.”

 

tasmatvameva vipranam
pujyo nany’sti kashcana
mohad yah pujayedanyam
sa pashandi bhaved dhruvam

 

“Therefore, You alone are worshipped by the brahmanas – and no other deity! If anyone, due to illusion offers worship to other gods, he is to be considered as a pashandi.”

 

@(FOOTNOTE) If one approaches a deva directly, the results are surely inauspicious. Rather one should worship them with the remnants of Lord Vishnu).

 

tvam hi narayanah shriman
vasudeva sanatanah
vishnuh sarvagato nityah
paramatma maheshvarah

 

“You are Narayana, the Lord of Lakshmi, Vasudeva, the Eternal One. You are Vishnu, the All-Pervading One, the Super-Soul, the Supreme Controller.”

 

tvameva sevyo vipranam
brahmanyah shuddhasattvan
pujyatvad brahmananam
vai shuddha sattvagunapi

 

“You are the Lord of transcendental goodness, the worshippable Lord of the brahmanas. You are worshipped by all the brahmanas and the demigods, By cultivating the quality of pure transcendental goodness, one attains the Supreme and remains fixed in Him.”

 

sarvesham eva devanam
brahmanatvam vapyate
tvameva hi sada vipro
bhajanti purushottamam
brahmanatve vadhu vuste
nanya tatra na samshayah

 

“O Purushottama! Since the brahmanas are always engaged in Your worship, they attain the Supreme abode and no other place. Of this there is no doubt.”
