|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 9: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu's Travels to the Holy Places|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 9.152
duḥkha nā bhāviha, bhaṭṭa, kailuń parihāsa
śāstra-siddhānta śuna, yāte vaiṣṇava-viśvāsa
duḥkha — unhappiness; nā — do not; bhāviha — bear; bhaṭṭa — My dear Veńkaṭa Bhaṭṭa; kailuń parihāsa — I was simply making a joke; śāstra-siddhānta — the conclusion of the revealed scriptures; śuna — hear; yāte — in which; vaiṣṇava-viśvāsa — the faith of the Vaiṣṇavas.
The Lord pacified Veńkaṭa Bhaṭṭa by saying, "Actually whatever I have said is by way of jest. Now you can hear from Me the conclusion of the śāstras, in which every Vaiṣṇava devotee has firm faith.
