|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 1: The Spiritual Masters|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 1.43
sāvaraṇe prabhure kariyā namaskāra
ei chaya teńho yaiche — kariye vicāra
sa-āvaraṇe — along with His associates; prabhure — unto Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; kariyā — having made; namaskāra — respectful obeisances; ei — these; chaya — six; teńho — He; yaiche — what they are like; kariye — I make; vicāra — discussion.
Having offered obeisances unto the Lord and all His associates, I shall now try to explain these six diversities in one.
There are many unalloyed devotees of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, all of whom are considered associates surrounding the Lord. Kṛṣṇa should be worshiped with His devotees. The diverse principles are therefore the eternal paraphernalia through which the Absolute Truth can be approached.
