|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 8: Talks Between Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Rāmānanda Rāya|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 8.26
ei ta' sannyāsīra teja dekhi brahma-sama
śūdre ālińgiyā kene karena krandana
ei ta' — this indeed; sannyāsīra — of the sannyāsī, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; teja — bodily effulgence; dekhi — we see; brahma-sama — exactly like Brahman; śūdre — a śūdra, or worker; ālińgiyā — embracing; kene — why; karena — does; krandana — crying.
The brāhmaṇas thought, "We can see that this sannyāsī has a luster like the effulgence of Brahman, but how is it He is crying upon embracing a śūdra, a member of the fourth caste in the social order?"
