Ādi-līlāChapter 7: Lord Caitanya in Five Features

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 7.79

tabe dhairya dhari' mane kariluń vicāra

kṛṣṇa-nāme jñānācchanna ha-ila āmāra


tabe — thereafter; dhairya — patience; dhari' — accepting; manein the mind; kariluńI did; vicāra — consideration; kṛṣṇa-nāmein the holy name of Kṛṣṇa; jñāna ācchanna — covering of My knowledge; ha-ila — has become; āmāra — of Me.


"Collecting My patience, therefore, I began to consider that chanting the holy name of Kṛṣṇa had covered all My spiritual knowledge.


Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu hints in this verse that to chant the holy name of Kṛṣṇa one does not need to speculate on the philosophical aspects of the science of God, for one automatically becomes ecstatic and without consideration immediately chants, dances, laughs, cries and sings just like a madman.
