|Madhya-lila||Chapter 6: The Liberation of Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrita Madhya 6.78
'bhattacarya' tumi inhara na jana mahima
bhagavatta-lakshanera inhatei sima
bhattacarya -- my dear Bhattacarya; tumi -- you; inhara -- of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu; na -- not; jana -- know; mahima -- the greatness; bhagavatta -- of being the Supreme Personality of Godhead; lakshanera -- of symptoms; inhatei -- in Him; sima -- the highest degree.
"My dear Bhattacarya, you do not know the greatness of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. All the symptoms of the Supreme Personality of Godhead are found in Him to the highest degree."
Since the Bhattacarya was an impersonalist, he had no idea of the Absolute Truth beyond the impersonal effulgence. However, Gopinatha Acarya informed him that Caitanya Mahaprabhu was the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Those who know the Absolute Truth know it in three phases, as explained in Srimad-Bhagavatam (1.2.11):
vadanti tat tattva-vidas tattvam yaj jnanam advayam
brahmeti paramatmeti bhagavan iti sabdyate
"Those who are in knowledge of the nondual Absolute Truth know very clearly what is Brahman, what is Paramatma, and what is the Supreme Personality of Godhead." The Supreme Personality of Godhead is shad-aisvarya-purna, complete with six opulences. Gopinatha Acarya emphasized that all those six opulences were completely existing in Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
