Radhanath Swami on Lord Caitanya reveals His heart

Lord Caitanya went home and sat down and began to contemplate that, “I descended into this world for the purpose of giving love of God through the medicine of holy name to the people. But now I see that the opposite is happening. If people blaspheme Me, if people disrespect Me, because I am the Supreme personality of Godhead they will have to suffer terribly. I must think of a way in which I can somehow or other must get the same envious arrogant people to offer their obeisances to Me with respect. And when they do that then by My grace I will be able to give Bhakti and Prema to them. In a society everyone offers respectful obeisances to a sannyasi. Now I am a house holder they just think I am one of them. I am one of the people of Navadwip, I am the son of Jagannath Misra, I am
the husband of Vishnu Priya, some are thinking I am their nephew some are thinking I am their friend and I am their fellow student they are seeing Me in very ordinary way. But if I take sannyasa, if I give up everything for the sake of Krishna, then even those people will bow down to Me. I will have the danda, I will have the begging bowl and I will go house to house, to those who hate Me, to those who are envious of Me and those who blaspheme Me and then they will bow down and I will give them Krishna Prema.” Caitanya Mahaprabhu decided I will become a sannyasi.
