Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrita Madhya 25.79
jive 'vishnu' buddhi dure -- yei brahma-rudra-sama
narayane mane tare 'pashandite' ganana
jive -- an ordinary living being; vishnu -- as Lord Vishnu; buddhi -- acceptance; dure -- let alone; yei -- anyone who; brahma-rudra-sama -- equal to personalities like Lord Brahma and Lord Siva; narayane -- Lord Narayana, Vishnu; mane -- accepts; tare -- such a person; pashandite ganana -- is grouped among the pashandis, atheistic offenders.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu continued, "To say nothing of ordinary living entities, even Lord Brahma and Lord Siva cannot be considered on the level of Vishnu or Narayana. If one considers them as such, he is immediately considered an offender and atheist.
