Mock Argument During Lunch

Lord Caitanya sat down with His devotees in a garden. All kinds of prasada (the sanctified remnants of Lord Krsna’s food) was brought.

Lord Caitanya said, “You can give Me the ordinary vegetable, and you may deliver to all the devotees better preparations.” However, the devotee who went to distribute the prasäda suddenly placed all the first-class preparations on the plate of Lord Caitanya.

When prasada was being distributed, Sri Advaita Acarya and Lord Nityananda, who sat side by side, engaged in a type of loving mock-fighting. First Advaita Acarya said, “I am sitting in line with an unknown mendicant, and because I am eating with Him, I do not know what kind of destination is awaiting Me. According to the scriptures, It is not proper for householders to dine with those whose previous birth, family, character, and behavior are unknown.”

Lord Nityananda immediately refuted Him, saying, “You are a teacher of monistic philosophy, which considers God devoid of form and qualities. The monistic conclusion is a great hindrance to progressive, pure devotional service of the Lord.”

Thus, They both continued talking and praising one another, although Their praise appeared negative, for it appeared as if They exchanged ill names. Lord Nityananda, for example, actually wanted to point out that Advaita Acarya, a pure devotee, did not agree with the monistic conclusion.
