|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 4: The Confidential Reasons for the Appearance of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 4.251
paraspara veṇu-gīte haraye cetana
mora bhrame tamālere kare ālińgana
paraspara — against each other; veṇu-gīte — the singing of the bamboo; haraye — attracts; cetana — consciousness; mora — of Me; bhrame — in mistake; tamālere — a black tree known as tamāla; kare — She does; ālińgana — embracing.
"The flutelike murmur of the bamboos rubbing against one another steals Rādhārāṇī's consciousness, for She thinks it to be the sound of My flute. And She embraces a tamāla tree, mistaking it for Me.
