krama kari' kahe prabhu 'vaisnava'-laksana
'vaisnava', 'vaisnavatara', ara 'vaisnavatama'
krama kari'-dividing according to grades; kahe prabhu—Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu spoke; vaisnava-laksana—the symptoms of Vaisnavas; vaisnava—the ordinary Vaisnava (the positive platform); vaisnava-tara—the better Vaisnava (the comparative platform); ara—and; vaisnava-tama—the best Vaisnava (the superlative platform).
In this way, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu instructed different types of Vaisnavas-the Vaisnava, Vaisnavatara and Vaisnavatama. He thus successively explained all the symptoms of a Vaisnava to the inhabitants of Kulina-grama.
