|Madhya-lila||Chapter 9: Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's Travels to the Holy Places|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrta Madhya 9.132
nayam sukhapo bhagavan
yatha bhakti-matam iha
na -- not; ayam -- this Lord Sri Krsna; sukha-apah -- easily available; bhagavan -- the Supreme Personality of Godhead; dehinam -- for materialistic persons who have accepted the body as the self; gopika-sutah -- the son of mother Yasoda; jnaninam -- for persons addicted to mental speculation; ca -- and; atma-bhutanam -- for persons performing severe austerities and penances; yatha -- as; bhakti-matam -- for persons engaged in spontaneous devotional service; iha -- in this world.
Caitanya Mahaprabhu then quoted, "'The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krsna, the son of mother Yasoda, is accessible to those devotees engaged in spontaneous loving service, but He is not as easily accessible to mental speculators, to those striving for self-realization by severe austerities and penances, or to those who consider the body the same as the self.'
This verse, also given in Madhya-lila 8.227, is quoted from Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.9.21).
