acintyah khalu ye bhava
na tams tarkena yojayet
prakrtibhyah param yac ca
tad acintyasya laksanam
acintyah—inconceivable; khalu—certainly; ye—those; bhavah—subject matters; na—not; tan—them; tarkena—by argument; yojayet—one may understand; prakrtibhyah—to material nature; param—transcendental; yat—that which; ca—and; tat—that; acintyasya—of the inconceivable; laksanam—a symptom.
"Anything transcendental to material nature is called inconceivable, whereas arguments are all mundane. Since mundane arguments cannot touch transcendental subject matters, one should not try to understand transcendental subjects through mundane arguments."
This is a quote from the Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu (2.5.93) by Srila Rupa Gosvami.
