|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 25: How All the Residents of Vārāṇasī Became Vaiṣṇavas|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 25.28
śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya-vākya dṛḍha satya māni
kali-kāle sannyāse 'saḿsāra' nāhi jini
śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya-vākya — the words of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; dṛḍha — very firm and convincing; satya māni — I admit as truth; kali-kāle — in this Age of Kali; sannyāse — simply by accepting the renounced order of life; saḿsāra nāhi jini — one cannot escape the material clutches.
"The words of Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Mahāprabhu are firm and convincing, and I accept them as true. In this Age of Kali, one cannot be delivered from the material clutches simply by formally accepting the renounced order.
