CC Madhya 18.126
- eita’ mahimā—tomāra ‘taṭastha’-lakṣaṇa
- ‘svarūpa’-lakṣaṇe tumi—‘vrajendra-nandana’
eita’—all these; mahimā—glories; tomāra—Your; taṭastha-lakṣaṇa—marginal characteristics; svarūpa—original; lakṣaṇe—by characteristics; tumi—You; vrajendra-nandana—the son of Mahārāja Nanda.
“These glories of Yours are only marginal. Originally You are the son of Mahārāja Nanda.”
The original characteristics of a substance are called svarūpa, and the subsequent corollaries are called taṭastha-lakṣaṇa, or marginal characteristics. The glories of the Lord’s marginal characteristics prove Him to be the original Supreme Personality of Godhead, the son of Mahārāja Nanda. As soon as one understands this, one accepts Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa.
