I worship herewith the lotus feet of all kinds of devotees, both advanced and neophyte. I request all of them to be satisfied with me. I am faultless because I have written herein whatever I have understood from Svarupa Damodara Gosvami and Rupa and Raghunatha dasa Gosvamis. I have neither added to nor subtracted from their version.
According to Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, there are three kinds of devotees, known as bhajana-vijna (experts in devotional service), bhajana-sila (devotees engaged in devotional service), and krsna-name diksita krsna-nama-kari (initiated devotees engaged in chanting). The author of Sri Caitanya-caritamrta begs the mercy of all these devotees and asks them to be pleased with him. He says, "Let the neophyte devotees-the devotees who are very expert in arguing though they have no sense of advanced devotional service, who think themselves very advanced because they imitate some smarta-brahmana-let such devotees not be displeased with me, thinking that I have committed errors in this regard. I beg their pardon with great humility, but I am submitting that I personally have no desire to add or subtract anything. I have only written what I have heard in the disciplic succession because I am dedicated to the lotus feet of previous acaryas like Svarupa Damodara, Raghunatha dasa Gosvami and Rupa Gosvami. I have only written what I have learned from them."
