|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 24: The Sixty-One Explanations of the Ātmārāma Verse|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 24.113
janma haite śuka-sanakādi 'brahmamaya'
kṛṣṇa-guṇākṛṣṭa hañā kṛṣṇere bhajaya
janma haite — from birth; śuka — Śukadeva Gosvāmī; sanaka-ādi — the four Kumāras; brahma-maya — absorbed in the thought of impersonal Brahman; kṛṣṇa-guṇa-ākṛṣṭa — attracted by the transcendental pastimes of the Lord; hañā — becoming; kṛṣṇere bhajaya — worshiped Lord Kṛṣṇa.
"Although Śukadeva Gosvāmī and the four Kumāras were always absorbed in the thought of impersonal Brahman and were thus Brahmavādīs, they were nonetheless attracted by the transcendental pastimes and qualities of Kṛṣṇa. Therefore they later became devotees of Kṛṣṇa.
