|Adi-lila||Chapter 4: The Confidential Reasons for the Appearance of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrta Adi 4.188
tan sabara nahi nija-sukha-anurodha
tathapi badhaye sukha, padila virodha
tan sabara -- of all of them; nahi -- not; nija-sukha -- for their own happiness; anurodha -- entreaty; tathapi -- still; badhaye -- increases; sukha -- happiness; padila -- happened; virodha -- contradiction.
The gopis have no inclination for their own enjoyment, and yet their joy increases. That is indeed a contradiction.
