tumi yaiche-taiche kaha, jāniyā rīti

sarasvatī sei-śabde kariyāche stuti

SYNONYMS

tumi — you; yaiche-taiche — somehow or other; kaha — speak; jāniyā rīti — not knowing the regulative principles; sarasvatī — the goddess of learning; sei-śabdein those words; kariyāche stuti — has made prayers.

TRANSLATION

"You have written something irregular, not knowing the regulative principles, but the goddess of learning, Sarasvatī, has used your words to offer her prayers to the Supreme Lord.

PURPORT

Svarūpa Dāmodara Gosvāmī informed the Bengali poet, "Because of your ignorance and your leaning toward Māyāvāda philosophy, you cannot distinguish the difference between the Māyāvāda and Vaiṣṇava philosophies. Therefore the process you have adopted to praise Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Lord Jagannātha does not follow the proper system; indeed, it is irregular and offensive. Fortunately, however, through your words, the goddess of learning, mother Sarasvatī, has tactfully offered her prayers to her master, Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu."
