|Antya-līlā||Chapter 1: Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī's Second Meeting With the Lord|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 1.107
'īśvara-svabhāva' — bhaktera nā laya aparādha
alpa-sevā bahu māne ātma-paryanta prasāda
īśvara-svabhāva — the characteristic of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; bhaktera — of the pure devotee; nā laya — does not take; aparādha — any offense; alpa-sevā — very small service; bahu māne — the Lord accepts as very great; ātma-paryanta — giving Himself; prasāda — mercy.
Characteristically, the Supreme Personality of Godhead does not take seriously an offense committed by a pure devotee. The Lord accepts whatever small service a devotee renders as being such a great service that He is prepared to give even Himself, what to speak of other benedictions.
