TEXT 114
kavi kahe,--'jagannatha--sundara-sarira
caitanya-gosani--sariri maha-dhira
kavi kahethe poet said; jagannathaLord Jagannatha; sundara-sariravery beautiful body; caitanya-gosaniSri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; sariripossessor of the body; maha-dhiravery grave.
The poet said, "Lord Jagannatha is a most beautiful body, and Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, who is exceptionally grave, is the owner of that body.
Sariri refers to a person who owns the sarira, or body. As stated in Bhagavad-gita:
dehino 'smin yatha dehe
kaumaram yauvanam jara
tatha dehantara-praptir
dhiras tatra na muhyati
"As the embodied soul continually passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. The self-realized soul is not bewildered by such a change." (Bg. 2.13) For the ordinary living being in material existence there is a division or distinction between the body and the owner of the body. In spiritual existence, however, there is no such distinction, for the body is the owner himself and the owner is the body itself. In spiritual existence, everything must be spiritual. Therefore there is no distinction between the body and its owner.
