CC Madhya 25.73 (1975)
- śreṣṭha hañā kene kara hīnera vandana
- āmāra sarva-nāśa haya, tumi brahma-sama
śreṣṭha hañā—being a more honorable person; kene—why; kara—you do; hīnera—of an inferior person; vandana—worship; āmāra sarva-nāśa haya—I become minimized in My strength; tumi brahma-sama—you are equal with the impersonal Brahman.
Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu continued, "You are a great, spiritually advanced personality, and therefore you cannot worship a person like Me. I am far inferior. If you do so, My spiritual power will be diminished, for you are as good as the impersonal Brahman.
