|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 21: The Opulence and Sweetness of Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 21.111
kahite kṛṣṇera rase, śloka paḍe premāveśe,
preme sanātana-hāta dhari'
gopī-bhāgya, kṛṣṇa guṇa, ye karila varṇana,
kahite — to describe; kṛṣṇera — of Lord Kṛṣṇa; rase — the different types of mellows; śloka — a verse; paḍe — recites; prema-āveśe — absorbed in ecstatic love; preme — in such love; sanātana-hāta dhari' — catching the hand of Sanātana Gosvāmī; gopī-bhāgya — the fortune of the gopīs; kṛṣṇa guṇa — the transcendental qualities of Kṛṣṇa; ye — which; karila varṇana — described; bhāva-āveśe — in ecstatic love; mathurā-nāgarī — the women of the city of Mathurā.
Just as the women of Mathurā ecstatically described the fortune of the gopīs of Vṛndāvana and the transcendental qualities of Kṛṣṇa, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu described the different mellows of Kṛṣṇa and became overwhelmed with ecstatic love. Grasping the hand of Sanātana Gosvāmī, He recited the following verse.
