SYNONYMS
brahmanandaBrahmananda; nama tumi—your name; gaura-brahma—the Brahman of the name Gaura; cala—both of them are moving; syama-varna—of blackish hue; jagannatha—Lord Jagannatha; vasiyachena—is sitting; acala—without movement.
TRANSLATION
"Both Brahmananda and Gaurahari are moving, whereas the blackish Lord Jagannatha is sitting tight and immobile."
PURPORT
Brahmananda Bharati wanted to prove that there is no difference between the Supreme Lord and the jiva, while Caitanya Mahaprabhu wanted to prove that He and Brahmananda Bharati were jivas and that although the jivas are Brahman, they are many, but the Supreme Lord, the Supreme Brahman, is one. On the other hand, Brahmananda Bharati also wanted to prove that Jagannatha and Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu are one, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, but that to fulfill His mission Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu appeared to be moving whereas Lord Jagannatha appeared to be inert. Thus this jolly argument was going on. Finally, Brahmananda Bharati referred the whole matter to Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya for a final decision.
