|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 24: The Sixty-One Explanations of the Ātmārāma Verse|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 24.225
'ca' evārthe — 'munayaḥ eva' kṛṣṇere bhajaya
"ātmārāmā api" — 'api' 'garhā'-artha kaya
ca — the word ca; eva-arthe — in the sense of eva; munayaḥ eva — just the saintly persons; kṛṣṇere bhajaya — engage themselves in the devotional service of Lord Kṛṣṇa; ātmārāmāḥ api — also in this combination, ātmārāmā api; api — the word api; garhā-artha kaya — in the sense of censure.
"The word 'ca' can also be used to indicate the certainty that only saintly persons are engaged in rendering devotional service to Kṛṣṇa. In the combination 'ātmārāmā api,' 'api' is used in the sense of censure.
