Lord Ramachandra and Dig-vijaya (Victory in all Directions)

Lord Ramacandra showed His favor to His brothers by ordering Them to go out.
Many of the Lord's devotees residing in Vrndavana have taken the vow not to
leave Vrndavana to preach Krsna consciousness. But the Lord says that Krsna
consciousness should be spread all over the world, in every village and
every town. This is the open order of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

prthivite ache yata nagaradi grama
sarvatra pracara haibe mora nama

A pure devotee, therefore, must execute the order of the Lord and must not
gratify his senses by remaining stagnant in one place, falsely proud,
thinking that because he does not leave Vrndavana but chants in a solitary
place he has become a great devotee. A devotee must carry out the order of
the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Caitanya Mahaprabhu said, yare dekha,
tare kaha 'krsna'-upadesa [Cc. Madhya 7.128]. Every devotee, therefore,
should spread Krsna consciousness by preaching, asking whomever he meets to
accept the order of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The Lord says,
sarva-dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja: [Bg. 18.66] "Abandon all
varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me." This is the order of the
Lord, who speaks as the supreme emperor. Everyone should be induced to
accept this order, for this is victory (dig-vijaya). And it is the duty of
the soldier, the devotee, to impress upon everyone this philosophy of life.
