|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 17: The Pastimes of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu in His Youth|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 17.280
ihā chāḍi' kṛṣṇa yadi haya anyākāra
gopikāra bhāva nāhi yāya nikaṭa tāhāra
ihā — this; chāḍi' — giving up; kṛṣṇa — Kṛṣṇa; yadi — if; haya — takes; anya-ākāra — another form; gopikāra — of the gopīs; bhāva — the ecstasy; nāhi — does not; yāya — arise; nikaṭa — near; tāhāra — that (form).
If Lord Kṛṣṇa gives up this original form and assumes another Viṣṇu form, nearness to Him cannot invoke the ecstatic mood of the gopīs.
