>I'm looking for the reference of the above verse-spoken by Lord Krsna. In
Caitanya Caritamrta Madhya-lila 11.28, this verse is quoted by Krsnadasa
Kaviraja, and it is cited as from from "Adi Purana".
>Now, I never heard of Adi Purana. Can it be "Adi-parva" (of Mahabharata)
>If so (and also if not), can anyone give me the exact number of the
>respective chapter and verse?
>Thank you very much.
>Your servant, Raja Vidya Dasa
