|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 25: How All the Residents of Vārāṇasī Became Vaiṣṇavas|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 25.106
ei 'tina' tattva āmi kahinu tomāre
'jīva' tumi ei tina nāribe jānibāre
ei tina tattva — all three of these features of the Absolute Truth; āmi — I; kahinu — shall speak; tomāre — unto you; jīva — a living being; tumi — you; ei tina — these three; nāribe — will not be able; jānibāre — to understand.
"'O Brahmā, I shall explain all these truths to you. Since you are a living being [jīva], without My explanation you will not be able to understand your relationship with Me, devotional activity and life's ultimate goal.
