|Adi-lila||Chapter 15: The Lord's Pauganda-lila|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrita Adi 15.29
purva-siddha bhava dunhara udaya karila
daive vanamali ghataka saci-sthane aila
purva-siddha -- as it is already settled; bhava -- ecstasy; dunhara -- of both of them; udaya -- awakened; karila -- was made; daive -- also accidentally; vanamali -- Vanamali; ghataka -- the marriage-maker; saci-sthane -- at the place of Sacimata; aila -- came.
When the Lord and Lakshmidevi met, their relationship awakened, having already been settled, and coincidentally the marriage-maker Vanamali came to see Sacimata.
Vanamali Ghataka, a resident of Navadvipa and a brahmana by caste, arranged the marriage of the Lord to Lakshmidevi. He was formerly Visvamitra, who negotiated the marriage of Lord Ramacandra, and later he was the brahmana who negotiated the marriage of Lord Krishna with Rukmini. That same brahmana acted as the marriage-maker of the Lord in caitanya-lila.
