|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 14: Performance of the Vṛndāvana Pastimes|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 14.121
nānā-puṣpodyāne tathā khele rātri-dine
lakṣmīdevīre sańge nāhi laya ki kāraṇe?
nānā-puṣpa-udyāne — in the various flower gardens; tathā — there; khele — He plays; rātri-dine — both day and night; lakṣmī-devīre — Lakṣmīdevī, the goddess of fortune; sańge — with Him; nāhi — does not; laya — take; ki kāraṇe — what is the reason.
"The Lord enjoys His pastimes day and night in various flower gardens there. But why does He not take Lakṣmīdevī, the goddess of fortune, with Him?"
