|Antya-līlā||Chapter 5: How Pradyumna Miśra Received Instructions from Rāmānanda Rāya|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 5.14
sei duńhe lañā rāya nibhṛta udyāne
nija-nāṭaka-gītera śikhāya nartane
sei duńhe — those two; lañā — taking; rāya — Rāmānanda Rāya; nibhṛta udyāne — in a solitary place in the garden; nija-nāṭaka — of the drama composed by him; gītera — of the songs; śikhāya — gives direction; nartane — in dancing.
"Śrīla Rāmānanda Rāya has taken these two girls to a solitary place in his garden, where he is teaching and directing them to dance according to the songs he has composed for his drama.
The drama being rehearsed by Rāmānanda Rāya and the two young girls was the well-known Jagannātha-vallabha-nāṭaka. The songs and dances were meant for the pleasure of Lord Jagannātha; therefore Rāmānanda Rāya was personally giving instructions on how to sing and dance for the drama.
