|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 6: The Glories of Śrī Advaita Ācārya|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 6.88
bhakta-abhimāna mūla śrī-balarāme
sei bhāve anugata tāńra aḿśa-gaṇe
bhakta-abhimāna — to think oneself a devotee; mūla — original; śrī-balarāme — in Lord Balarāma; sei bhāve — in that ecstasy; anugata — followers; tāńra aḿśa-gaṇe — all His parts and parcels.
The source of the sentiment of servitude is indeed Lord Balarāma. The plenary expansions who follow Him are all influenced by that ecstasy.
