|Antya-līlā||Chapter 14: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu's Feelings of Separation from Kṛṣṇa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 14.25
dekhiyā govinda āste-vyaste strīke varjilā
tāre nāmāite prabhu govinde niṣedhilā
dekhiyā — seeing; govinda — the personal servant of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; āste-vyaste — with great haste; strīke — the woman; varjilā — got down; tāre — her; nāmāite — to get down; prabhu — Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; govinde — Govinda; niṣedhilā — forbade.
When he saw this, Caitanya Mahāprabhu's personal servant, Govinda, hastily got her down from her position. Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, however, chastised him for this.
Because Garuḍa is the carrier of Lord Viṣṇu, he is the supreme Vaiṣṇava. Therefore to touch his body with one's feet or to climb the column of Garuḍa is certainly a vaiṣṇava-aparādha, an offense to a Vaiṣṇava. The woman was also offensive to Kṛṣṇa by putting her foot on the shoulder of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Seeing all these offenses, Govinda very hastily made her get down.
