TEXT 103
iha suni' bale sarva sannyasira gana
tomake dekhiye yaiche saksat narayana
iha—this; suni'-hearing; bale—spoke; sarva—all; sannyasira—of the Mayavadi sannyasis; gana—group; tomake—unto You; dekhiye—we see; yaiche—exactly like; saksat—directly; narayana—the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
Hearing this, the Mayavadi sannyasis became somewhat humble and addressed Caitanya Mahaprabhu as Narayana Himself, who they all agreed He was.
Mayavadi sannyasis address each other as Narayana. Whenever they see another sannyasi, they offer him respect by calling om namo narayanaya ("I offer my respect unto you, Narayana"), although they know perfectly well what kind of Narayana he is. Narayana has four hands, but although they are puffed up with the idea of being Narayana, they cannot exhibit more than two. Since their philosophy declares that Narayana and an ordinary human being are both on the same level, they sometimes use the term daridra-narayana ("poor Narayana"), which was invented by a so-called svami who did not know anything about Vedanta philosophy. Therefore although all these Mayavadi sannyasis who called themselves Narayana were actually unaware of the position of Narayana, due to their austerities Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu enabled them to understand Him to be Narayana Himself. Lord Caitanya is certainly the Supreme Personality of Godhead Narayana appearing as a devotee of Narayana, and thus the Mayavadi sannyasis, understanding that He was directly Narayana Himself whereas they were false, puffed-up Narayanas, spoke to Him as follows.
