Lecture by Bhakti Purusottama Swami on Srimad Bhagavatam, Canto 7, Chapter 13, Text 10. Maharaj speaks on the sometimes unexplainable activities of the pure devotees using many examples from Lord Chaitanya.
Although a saintly person may not expose himself to the vision of human society, by his behavior his purpose is disclosed. To human society he should present himself like a restless child, and although he is the greatest thoughtful orator, he should present himself like a dumb man.
A great personality very much advanced in Krishna consciousness may not expose himself by the signs of a sannyasi. To cover himself, he may live like a restless child or a dumb person, although he is the greatest orator or poet.
