Sukadev Goswami is right, Jayadev Goswami is right- Prabhupad Saraswati Thakur

Srila Sukadev Goswami is right, Srila Jayadev Goswami is right

   In the book called “Prabhupad Saraswati Thakur” by Mandala Publishing Group wich contains many articles written by Prabhupad, in the page 117 of the same, Prabhupad wrote:

   “The ‘hidden matters’ can only be known by the special mercy of Sri Krishna and not otherwise. They are not to be divulged to all persons indiscriminately. This explanation offered by the Goswamis is not opposed to the open treatment of the same subject by Sri Jayadeva and others writers. In spite of the Gita Govinda and its companion works, the subject of the relationship of Sri Radhika to Sri Krishna remains shrouded in impenetrable mistery. No language can convey to the lay reader anything but a misleading idea of the nature of the subject on wich Sri Sukadev maintained such discrite silence. This result is hailed with unmistakable joy by Srila Krsna Das Kaviraj Goswami, author of Sri Chaitanya Charitamrta. Kaviraj Goswami pertinently observes that no joy can excel that of the narrator of the hidden subject when he realizes that those very persons are wholly and automatically barred from all knowledge of the subject. They will surely not appreciate the same for fear of whose neblect the writer is afraid to narrate fully. Sri Sukadev Goswami´s hesitation to divulge the secrets of the Vedas is well founded. The conduct of Sri jayadev Goswami in speaking without reserve is equally in order if we remember that his book cannot be understood at all by those who are lacking in the highest spiritual culture.
   Certain uncritical writers have even thrown mud at the author of Gita-Govinda; but they are the exceptions. Generally writers have thought it wise to avoid all reference to the subject for the honest enough reason that they have failed to understand how a book wich has a most obscene exterior could be cherished by all the great devotees of the country, whose conduct is universally admitted to have been free from any taint of casuality.”
