TEXT 142

yā yā śrutir jalpati nirviśeṣaṁ
sā sābhidhatte sa-viśeṣam eva
vicāra-yoge sati hanta tāsāṁ
prāyo balīyaḥ sa-viśeṣam eva


yā yā—whatever; śrutiḥ—the Vedic hymns; jalpati—describe; nirviśeṣam—impersonal truth; sā—that; sā—that; abhidhatte—directly describes (like a dictionary meaning); sa-viśeṣam—personality; eva—certainly; vicāra-yoge—when accepted by intelligence; sati—being; hanta—alas; tāsām—of all the Vedic mantras; prāyaḥ—mostly; balīyaḥ—more powerful; sa-viśeṣam—personal variety; eva—certainly.


Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu continued, " 'Whatever Vedic mantras describe the Absolute Truth impersonally only prove in the end that the Absolute Truth is a person. The Supreme Lord is understood in two features-impersonal and personal. If one considers the Supreme Personality of Godhead in both features, he can actually understand the Absolute Truth. He knows that the personal understanding is stronger because we see that everything is full of variety. No one can see anything that is not full of variety.'


This is a quotation from the Śrī Caitanya-candrodaya-nāṭaka (6.67), by Kavi-karṇapura.
