With his third, he softened vaidhi bhakti with a touch of divine love (rāga marga). Taking us beyond Vaikuṇtha, he has introduced us to the highest worship of Śrī Rādhā and Govinda.
With the softness of Vṛndāvana within, and the hardness of a devastator without, he created havoc in the world—fighting with one and all. Singlehandedly fighting against the whole world, and cutting everything to pieces—that was his external attitude. And his second attitude was to stop the boasting research of the scholars and doctors of different schools of thought; and third, to minimize and slacken the grandeur of the worship of Nārāyana, and establish the service of Rādhā-Govinda as the highest attainment. He caused the domain of love to descend into this plane, with the service of Rādhā-Govinda, establishing the flow of divine love from the heart as all in all. That was his history—the real existence of Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Saraswatī Thākura Prabhupāda. May his divine teachings, bhaktisiddhānta vānī, dance eternally within the core of our hearts.
