|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 21: The Opulence and Sweetness of Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 21.11
guṇātmanas te 'pi guṇān vimātuḿ
hitāvatīrṇasya ka īśire 'sya
kālena yair vā vimitāḥ su-kalpair
bhū-pāḿśavaḥ khe mihikā dyu-bhāsaḥ
guṇa-ātmanaḥ — the overseer of the three qualities; te — of You; api — certainly; guṇān — the qualities; vimātum — to count; hita-avatīrṇasya — who have descended for the benefit of all living entities; ke — who; īśire — were able; asya — of the universe; kālena — in due course of time; yaiḥ — by whom; vā — or; vimitāḥ — counted; su-kalpaiḥ — by great scientists; bhū-pāḿśavaḥ — the atoms of the universe; khe — in the sky; mihikāḥ — particles of snow; dyu-bhāsaḥ — the illuminating stars and planets.
"'In time, great scientists may be able to count all the atoms of the universe, all the stars and planets in the sky, and all the particles of snow, but who among them can count the unlimited transcendental qualities of the Supreme Personality of Godhead? He descends on the surface of the globe for the benefit of all living entities.'
This verse is also quoted from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (10.14.7).
