|Antya-līlā||Chapter 4: Sanātana Gosvāmī Visits the Lord at Jagannātha Purī|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 4.174
'prākṛta' haile ha tomāra vapu nāri upekṣite
bhadrābhadra-vastu-jñāna nāhika 'prākṛte'
prākṛta — material; haile ha — even if it were; tomāra — your; vapu — body; nāri — I cannot; upekṣite — neglect; bhadra-abhadra — good and bad; vastu-jñāna — appreciation of things; nāhika — there is not; prākṛte — in the material world.
"Even if your body were material, I still could not neglect it, for the material body should be considered neither good nor bad.
Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu told Sanātana Gosvāmī, "Since you are a Vaiṣṇava, your body is spiritual, not material. Therefore you should not consider this body to be subjected to superior or inferior qualities. Moreover, I am a sannyāsī. Therefore even if your body were material, a sannyāsī should see no distinction between a good body and a bad body."
