Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 24.101
'pra'-śabde — mokṣa-vāñchā kaitava-pradhāna
ei śloke śrīdhara-svāmī kariyāchena vyākhyāna
pra-śabde — by the prefix pra; mokṣa-vāñchā — the desire for being liberated; kaitava-pradhāna — first-class cheating; ei śloke — in this verse; śrīdhara-svāmī — the great commentator Śrīdhara Svāmī; kariyāchena — has made; vyākhyāna — explanation.
"The prefix 'pra' in the word 'projjhita' specifically refers to those desiring liberation or oneness with the Supreme. Such a desire should be understood to be the foremost cheating propensity. The great commentator Śrīdhara Svāmī has explained this verse in that way.
