TEXT 111
prabhu kahe,--'visnu' 'visnu' iha na kahiba!
jivadhame 'krsna'-jnana kabhu na kariba!
prabhu kaheSri Caitanya Mahaprabhu replied; visnu visnuO Visnu, Visnu; ihathis; na kahibado not speak; jiva-adhamefallen conditioned souls; krsna-jnanaaccepting as Lord Krsna; kabhuever; na karibado not do.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu immediately exclaimed,"Visnu! Visnu! Do not call Me the Supreme Personality of Godhead. A jiva cannot become Krsna at any time. Do not even say such a thing!
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu immediately stated that a living being, however exalted he may be, should never be compared to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. All of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's preaching protests the monistic philosophy of the Mayavada school. The central point of Krsna consciousness is that the jiva, the living entity, can never be accepted as Krsna or Visnu. This viewpoint is elaborated in the following verses.
