CC Ādi 6.93 By His words He declares, “I am a servant of Lord Caitanya.” Thus with His mind He always thinks, “I am His devotee.”
CC Ādi 6.94 With His body He worshiped the Lord by offering Ganges water and tulasī leaves, and by preaching devotional service He delivered the entire universe.
CC Ādi 6.95 Śeṣa Saṅkarṣaṇa, who holds all the planets on His heads, expands Himself in different bodies to render service to Lord Kṛṣṇa.
CC Ādi 6.96 These are all incarnations of Lord Kṛṣṇa, yet we always find that they act as devotees.
CC Ādi 6.97 The scriptures call them incarnations as devotees [bhakta-avatāra]. The position of being such an incarnation is above all others.
CC Ādi 6.98 Lord Kṛṣṇa is the source of all incarnations, and all others are His parts or partial incarnations. We find that the whole and the part behave as superior and inferior.
CC Ādi 6.99 The source of all incarnations has the emotions of a superior when He considers Himself the master, and He has the emotions of an inferior when He considers Himself a devotee.
CC Ādi 6.100 The position of being a devotee is higher than that of equality with Lord Kṛṣṇa, for the devotees are dearer to Lord Kṛṣṇa than His own self.
