|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 24: The Sixty-One Explanations of the Ātmārāma Verse|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 24.165
'ātmā' śabde 'mana' kaha — mane yei rame
sādhu-sańge seha bhaje śrī-kṛṣṇa-caraṇe
ātmā-śabde — by the word ātmā; mana — the mind; kaha — if you say; mane — within the mind; yei rame — one who is satisfied by speculation; sādhu-sańge — by the association of devotees; seha — he also; bhaje — takes to devotional service; śrī-kṛṣṇa-caraṇe — at the lotus feet of Lord Kṛṣṇa.
"The word 'ātmā' sometimes means 'the mind.' In this case the word 'ātmārāma' means 'a person who is satisfied by mental speculation.' When such a person associates with a pure devotee, he takes to devotional service at the lotus feet of Kṛṣṇa.
