prabhu kahe,-"ami jiva', ati tuccha-jnana!
vyasa-sutrera gambhira artha, vyasa-bhagavan
prabhu kahe—Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu replied; ami jiva—I am an insignificant living being; ati tuccha-jnana—My knowledge is very meager; vyasa-sutrera—of the Vedanta-sutra, written by Vyasadeva; gambhira artha—very grave meaning; vyasa—Vyasadeva; bhagavan—the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu replied, "I am an ordinary living being, and therefore my knowledge is very insignificant. However, the meaning of the Brahma-sutra is very grave because its author, Vyasadeva, is the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself.
An ordinary living being cannot actually understand the purpose of the Vedanta-sutra. One can understand the purpose if he hears it from the authority, Vyasadeva himself. For this reason, Vyasadeva gave a commentary on the Brahma-sutra in the form of Srimad-Bhagavatam. He had been instructed to do this by his spiritual master, Narada. Of course, Sankaracarya distorted the purpose of the Brahma-sutra because he had a motive to serve. He wanted to establish Vedic knowledge in place of the atheistic knowledge spread by Lord Buddha. All these necessities are there according to time and circumstances. Neither Lord Buddha nor Sankaracarya is to be blamed. The time required such an explanation for the understanding of various types of atheists. The conclusion is that one cannot understand the purpose of the Vedanta-sutra without going through Srimad-Bhagavatam and rendering devotional service. Caitanya Mahaprabhu therefore further explains the matter in the following verses.
