"No saintly acarya will manufacture his way"
Therefore, in this age Caitanya Mahāprabhu has given us very shortcut method, not manufactured by Him. No saintly ācārya will manufacture his way. He must refer to the Vedic literature
Lecture on SB 1.2.5 -- Visakhapatnam, February 20, 1972, At Ladies Club: So therefore, in the symptoms of Kali-yuga it has been stated, daksyam kutumba-bharanam. Kutumba means family. If one can maintain his family, he is to be considered as very successful. No, he hasn't got to make daksa-yajna, or naradeva-yajna, or so many yajna. No. That he has no means. This is the position. Mandah sumanda-matayo [SB 1.1.10]. And if anyone wants to accept something for spiritual, that is sumanda-matayo, something bogus. He will accept something bogus which has no spiritual, I mean to say, reference. He will accept, "I have... I have got this religion." Mandah sumanda-matayo manda-bhagya. Because they're all unfortunate, and upadrutah, and always disturbed and anxious by so many external affairs. Therefore, in this age Caitanya Mahaprabhu has given us very shortcut method, not manufactured by Him. No saintly acarya will manufacture his way. He must refer to the Vedic literature. So Caitanya Mahaprabhu picked up the Vedic instruction, harer nama harer nama harer namaiva kevalam/ kalau nasty eva nasty eva nasty eva gatir anyatha [Cc. Adi 17.21] from Brhad Naradiya Purana.
