CC Ādi 7.55
মোরে অনুগ্রহ কর নিমন্ত্রণ মানি’ ॥ ৫৫ ॥
more anugraha kara nimantraṇa māni’
“My dear Lord, I know that You never mix with other sannyāsīs, but please be merciful unto me and accept my invitation.”
An ācārya, or great personality of the Vaiṣṇava school, is very strict in his principles, but although he is as hard as a thunderbolt, sometimes he is as soft as a rose. Thus actually he is independent. He follows all the rules and regulations strictly, but sometimes he slackens this policy. It was known that Lord Caitanya never mixed with the Māyāvādī sannyāsīs, yet He conceded to the request of the brāhmaṇa, as stated in the next verse.
