Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 20.313

harir hi nirguṇaḥ sākṣāt

puruṣaḥ prakṛteḥ paraḥ

sa sarva-dṛg upadraṣṭā

taḿ bhajan nirguṇo bhavet


hariḥ — the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Viṣṇu; hi — certainly; nirguṇaḥ — transcendental to all material qualities; sākṣāt — directly; puruṣaḥ — the supreme enjoyer; prakṛteḥ — material nature; paraḥ — beyond; saḥHe; sarva-dṛk — the seer of everything; upadraṣṭā — the overseer of everything; tam — Him; bhajan — by worshiping; nirguṇaḥ — transcendental to material qualities; bhavet — one becomes.


"'Śrī Hari, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is situated beyond the range of material nature; therefore He is the supreme transcendental person. He can see everything inside and outside; therefore He is the supreme overseer of all living entities. If someone takes shelter at His lotus feet and worships Him, he also attains a transcendental position.'


This is also a quotation from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (10.88.5).
