SIGNIFICADO: Aunque Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu y Śrī Advaita Prabhu pertenecen todos ellos a la misma categoría de Viṣṇu, se acepta a Śrī Caitanya como Supremo, y los otros dos prabhus Se ocupan en Su servicio trascendental de amor, enseñando a las entidades vivientes corrientes que cada uno de nosotros está subordinado a Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. En otro pasaje del Caitanya-caritāmṛta (Ādi. 5.142) se dice: ekalā īśvara kṛṣṇa, āra saba bhṛtya, el único amo supremo es Kṛṣṇa, y todos los demás, tanto viṣṇu-tattva como jīva-tattva, se ocupan en el servicio del Señor. Tanto viṣṇu-tattva (Nityānanda Prabhu y Advaita) como jīva-tattva (śrīvāsādi-gaura-bhakta-vṛnda) se ocupan en el servicio del Señor, pero hay que distinguir entre los servidores viṣṇu-tattvas y los servidores jīva-tattvas. El servidor jīva-tattva, el maestro espiritual, es en realidad el Dios servidor. Como se ha explicado en versos anteriores, en el mundo absoluto no existen estas diferencias, pero, sin embargo, éstas deben observarse para distinguir entre el Supremo y Sus subordinados.

Although Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu and Śrī Advaita Prabhu all belong to the same Viṣṇu category, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu is nevertheless accepted as the Supreme, and the other two prabhus engage in His transcendental loving service to teach ordinary living entities that every one of us is subordinate to Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. In another place in the Caitanya-caritāmṛta (Ādi 5.142) it is said, ekale īśvara kṛṣṇa, āra saba bhṛtya: the only supreme master is Kṛṣṇa, and all others, both viṣṇu-tattva and jīva-tattva, engage in the service of the Lord. Both the viṇu-tattva (as Nityānanda Prabhu and Advaita) and the jīva-tattva (śrīvāsādi-gaura-bhakta-vṛnda) engage in the service of the Lord, but one must distinguish between the viṣṇu-tattva servitors and the jīva-tattva servitors. The jīva-tattva servitor, the spiritual master, is actually the servitor God. As explained in previous verses, in the absolute world there are no such differences, yet one must observe these differences in order to distinguish the Supreme from His subordinates.
