pūrve yaiche rāya-pāśe prabhu praśna kailā
tāńra śaktye rāmānanda tāńra uttara dilā
ihāń prabhura śaktye praśna kare sanātana
āpane mahāprabhu kare 'tattva'-nirūpaṇa
pūrve — formerly; yaiche — as; rāya-pāśe — unto Rāmānanda Rāya; prabhu — Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; praśna kailā — inquired; tāńra śaktye — only by His mercy; rāmānanda — Rāmānanda Rāya; tāńra — his; uttara — answers; dilā — gave; ihāń — here; prabhura — of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; śaktye — by the strength; praśna — questions; kare — puts; sanātana — Sanātana Gosvāmī; āpane — personally; mahāprabhu — Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; kare — does; tattva — the truth; nirūpaṇa — discerning.
Formerly, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu had asked Rāmānanda Rāya spiritual questions, and by the Lord's causeless mercy, Rāmānanda Rāya could properly reply. Now, by the Lord's mercy, Sanātana Gosvāmī questioned the Lord, and Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu personally supplied the truth.
