TEXT 56
'sahajei pūjya tumi, āre ta' sannyāsa
ataeva haṅ tomāra āmi nija-dāsa'
SYNONYMS
sahajei—naturally; pūjya—respectable; tumi—You; āre—over and above this; ta'-certainly; sannyāsa—the renounced order of life; ataeva—therefore; haṅ—am; tomāra—Your; āmi—I; nija-dāsa—personal servant.
TRANSLATION
"You are naturally respectable. Besides, You are a sannyāsī; thus I wish to become Your personal servant."
PURPORT
A sannyāsī is always to be worshiped and offered all kinds of respect by the gṛhasthas (householders). Although Sārvabhauma Bhaṭṭācārya was older than Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, Sārvabhauma respected Him as a sannyāsī and as one who had attained the topmost platform of spiritual ecstasy. Thus the Bhaṭṭācārya certainly accepted Him as his master.
