|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 16: The Lord's Attempt to Go to Vṛndāvana|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 16.11
yadyapi svatantra prabhu nahe nivāraṇa
bhakta-icchā vinā prabhu nā kare gamana
yadyapi — although; svatantra — fully independent; prabhu — Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; nahe nivāraṇa — there is no checking Him; bhakta-icchā vinā — without the permission of devotees; prabhu — Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; nā kare gamana — does not go.
Although the Lord is completely independent and no one can check Him, He still did not go without the permission of His devotees.
