Translation

Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu thus posed Himself as a disciple and accepted Brahmānanda Bhāratī as His spiritual master. He then said, “The disciple is certainly defeated in an argument with the spiritual master.”

Brahmānanda Bhāratī immediately countered these words, saying, “This is not the cause of Your defeat. There is another cause.
