Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 20.348
pūrvavat likhi yabe guṇāvatāra-gaṇa
asańkhya sańkhyā tāńra, nā haya gaṇana
pūrva-vat — as previously; likhi — I write; yabe — when; guṇa-avatāra-gaṇa — incarnations of the material modes of nature; asańkhya — innumerable; sańkhya — counting; tāńra — of them; nā haya gaṇana — not actually countable.
"As stated before when I described the incarnations of the material modes [guṇa-avatāras], one should consider that these incarnations also are unlimited and that no one can count them.
