|Antya-līlā||Chapter 1: Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī's Second Meeting With the Lord|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 1.126
vidagdha-mādhava āra lalita-mādhava
dui nāṭake prema-rasa adabhuta saba"
vidagdha-mādhava — one is named Vidagdha-mādhava; āra — and; lalita-mādhava — named Lalita-mādhava; dui nāṭake — in two plays; prema-rasa — ecstatic mellows of emotional love for Kṛṣṇa; adabhuta — wonderful; saba — all.
"The two plays are called Vidagdha-mādhava and Lalita-mādhava. Both of them wonderfully describe ecstatic emotional love of God."
Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura informs us in this connection that Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī finished the drama known as Vidagdha-mādhava in the year Śakābda 1454 (A.D. 1532) and the Lalita-mādhava in Śakābda 1459 (A.D. 1537). The discussion between Rāmānanda Rāya and Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī at Jagannātha Purī took place in Śakābda 1437 (A.D. 1515).
