TRANSLATION
In reply to those critics who say that Sri Caitanya-caritamrta is full of Sanskrit verses, it can be said that Srimad-Bhagavatam is also full of Sanskrit verses, as are the commentaries on Srimad-Bhagavatam. Nonetheless, Srimad-Bhagavatam can be understood by everyone, as well as by advanced devotees who study the Sanskrit commentaries. Why, then, will people not understand the Caitanya-caritamrta? There are only a few Sanskrit verses, and these have been explained in the Bengali vernacular. What is the difficulty in understanding?
