CC Madhya 17.170
- prabhu kahe,—“tumi ‘guru’, āmi ‘śiṣya’-prāya
- ‘guru’ hañā ‘śiṣye’ namaskāra nā yuyāya
prabhu kahe—Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu said; tumi—you; guru—My spiritual master; āmi—I; śiṣya-prāya—like your disciple; guru hañā—being the spiritual master; śiṣye—unto the disciple; namaskāra—obeisances; nā yuyāya—is not befitting.
Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu said, “You are on the platform of My spiritual master, and I am your disciple. Since you are My spiritual master, it is not befitting that you offer Me obeisances.”
