|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 24: The Sixty-One Explanations of the Ātmārāma Verse|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 24.282
ei ta' kahiluń tomāya vyādhera ākhyāna
yā śunile haya sādhu-sańga-prabhāva-jñāna
ei ta' kahiluń — thus I have narrated; tomāya — unto you; vyādhera ākhyāna — the story of the hunter; yā śunile — hearing which; haya — there is; sādhu-sańga — of the association of devotees; prabhāva — of the influence; jñāna — knowledge.
"Thus I have narrated the incident of the hunter. By hearing this narration, one can understand the influence of association with devotees.
Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu wanted to stress that even a hunter, the lowest of men, could become a topmost Vaiṣṇava simply by associating with Nārada Muni or a devotee in his bona fide disciplic succession.
