Bharata Maharaja, Who had attained loving affection for the Supreme Lord, fell down from his position due to his affection of deer. Consequently, he had to accept the body of a deer in his next life. Unless we increase our faith in the Supreme Lord, we shall be attracted to many other things. That is the cause of our material bondage.
The relationship of a disciple with his spiritual master is as good as his relationship with the Supreme Lord. A Spiritual master always represents himself as the humblest servitor of the humblest servitor of the Personality of Godhead, but the disciple must look upon him as the manifested representation of Godhead. — Sri Caitanya Caritamrita, Adi Lila, 01.45.
