|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 19: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu Instructs Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 19.99
prabhu kahena, — kaha, teńho paḍe kṛṣṇa-līlā
premāveśe prabhura deha-mana āyuyāilā
prabhu kahena — Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu said; kaha — please go on speaking; teńho — he; paḍe — recites; kṛṣṇa-līlā — the pastimes of Lord Kṛṣṇa; prema-āveśe — in great ecstasy of love; prabhura — of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; deha-mana — body and mind; āyuyāilā — became slackened.
Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu requested Raghupati Upādhyāya to continue speaking about the pastimes of Śrī Kṛṣṇa. Thus the Lord was absorbed in ecstatic love, and His mind and body slackened.
Our minds and bodies are always engaged in material activities. When they are activated on the spiritual platform, they slacken on the material platform.
