TRANSLATION
"In the Bhagavad-gita the living entity is established as the marginal potency of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Yet you say that the living entity is completely different from the Lord.
PURPORT
The Brahma-sutra states that according to the principle of sakti-saktimatayor abhedah, the living entity is simultaneously one with and different from the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Qualitatively the living entity and the Supreme Lord are one, but in quantity they are different. According to Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's philosophy (acintya-bhedabheda-tattva), the living entity and the Supreme Lord are accepted as one and different at the same time.
