|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 16: The Pastimes of the Lord in His Childhood and Youth|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 16.107
prāte āsi' prabhu-pade la-ila śaraṇa
prabhu kṛpā kaila, tāńra khaṇḍila bandhana
prāte — in the morning; āsi' — coming back; prabhu-pade — at the lotus feet of the Lord; la-ila — took; śaraṇa — shelter; prabhu — the Lord; kṛpā — mercy; kaila — showed; tāńra — his; khaṇḍila — cut off; bandhana — all bondage.
The next morning the poet came to Lord Caitanya and surrendered unto His lotus feet. The Lord bestowed His mercy upon him and cut off all his bondage to material attachment.
The same process advocated by Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa in His teachings of the Bhagavad-gītā as it is — "Surrender unto Me in all instances" — was advocated by Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu. The champion surrendered unto the Lord, and the Lord favored him. One who is favored by the Lord is freed from material bondage, as stated in the Bhagavad-gītā (4.9): tyaktvā dehaḿ punar janma naiti mām eti so 'rjuna.
