|Antya-līlā||Chapter 20: The Śikṣāṣṭaka Prayers|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 20.69
dvādaśa vatsara aiche daśā — rātri-dine
kṛṣṇa-rasa āsvādaye dui-bandhu-sane
dvādaśa vatsara — for twelve years; aiche daśā — such a condition; rātri-dine — day and night; kṛṣṇa-rasa — transcendental bliss and mellows in connection with Kṛṣṇa; āsvādaye — He tastes; dui-bandhu-sane — with two friends, namely Rāmānanda Rāya and Svarūpa Dāmodara Gosvāmī.
For twelve years, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu remained in that state day and night. With His two friends He tasted the meaning of those verses, which consists of nothing but the transcendental bliss and mellows of Kṛṣṇa consciousness.
