TRANSLATION
The Lord told Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya, "I have traveled to many holy places, but I could not find a Vaisnava as good as you anywhere."
PURPORT
In the Sri Caitanya-candrodaya-nataka (eighth part) Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu said, "Sarvabhauma, I have traveled to many holy places, but I cannot find a Vaisnava as good as you anywhere. However, I must admit that Ramananda Raya is wonderful."
Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya replied, "Therefore, my Lord, I requested that You see him."
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu then said, "There are, of course, many Vaisnavas in these holy places, and most of them worship Lord Narayana. Others, who are called Tattvavadis, are also Laksmi-Narayana worshipers, but they do not belong to the pure Vaisnava cult. There are many worshipers of Lord Siva, and there are also many atheists. Regardless, My dear Bhattacarya, I very much like Ramananda Raya and his opinions."
