|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 20: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu Instructs Sanātana Gosvāmī in the Science of the Absolute Truth|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 20.362
ei saba kārya — tāńra taṭastha-lakṣaṇa
anya avatāra aiche jāne muni-gaṇa
ei saba kārya — all these activities; tāńra — His; taṭastha-lakṣaṇa — marginal characteristics; anya avatāra — another incarnation; aiche — in that same way; jāne — know; muni-gaṇa — the great saintly persons like Vyāsadeva.
"All these activities are His marginal characteristics. Great saintly persons understand the incarnations of the Supreme Personality of Godhead by the indications of the two characteristics known as svarūpa and taṭastha. All the incarnations of Kṛṣṇa should be understood in this way.
