|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 10: The Lord's Return to Jagannātha Purī|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 10.182
prabhu kahe, — 'viṣṇu' 'viṣṇu', ki kaha sārvabhauma
'ati-stuti' haya ei nindāra lakṣaṇa
prabhu kahe — Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu said; viṣṇu viṣṇu — Lord Viṣṇu, Lord Viṣṇu; ki kaha — what are you speaking; sārvabhauma — Sārvabhauma Bhaṭṭācārya; ati-stuti — overly glorifying; haya — is; ei — this; nindāra lakṣaṇa — symptom of blasphemy.
Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu said, "Sārvabhauma Bhaṭṭācārya, what are you saying? Lord Viṣṇu, save Me! Such glorification is simply another form of blasphemy."
Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu was a little embarrassed by the Bhaṭṭācārya's statement; therefore He uttered the name Viṣṇu to save Himself. The Lord herein confirms that if one is overestimated, glorification is just another form of blasphemy. In this way He protests this so-called offensive statement.
