Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta (Madhya 9.195)

Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu then assured the brāhmaṇa, “Have faith in My words and do not burden your mind any longer with this misconception.”Caitanya-caritamrita (Madhya 9.195)

viśvāsa karaha tumi āmāra vacane
punarapi ku-bhāvanā nā kariha mane

viśvāsa karaha — believe; tumi — you; āmāra — My; vacane — in the words; punarapi — again; ku-bhāvanā — misconception; nā kariha — do not do; mane — in the mind.

This is the process of spiritual understanding. Acintyāḥ khalu ye bhāvā na tāṁs tarkeṇa yojayet: “We should not try to understand things beyond our material conception by argument and counterargument.” Mahā-jano yena gataḥ sa panthāḥ: “We have to follow in the footsteps of great authorities coming down in the paramparā system.” If we approach a bona fide ācārya and keep faith in his words, spiritual realization will be easy.
