|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 25: How All the Residents of Vārāṇasī Became Vaiṣṇavas|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 25.207
rūpa-gosāñi, āile tāńre bahu prīti kailā
āpana-sańge lañā 'dvādaśa vana' dekhāilā
rūpa-gosāñi — Rūpa Gosāñi; āile — when he came to Mathurā; tāńre — unto him; bahu — much; prīti — love; kailā — showed; āpana-sańge lañā — taking Rūpa Gosvāmī personally with him; dvādaśa vana — the twelve forests of Vṛndāvana; dekhāilā — showed.
When Rūpa Gosvāmī arrived at Mathurā, Subuddhi Rāya, out of love and affection for him, wanted to serve him in so many ways. He personally took Rūpa Gosvāmī to see all the twelve forests of Vṛndāvana.
Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī had been a minister in the government of Hussain Shah, and Subuddhi Rāya was also known to Hussain Shah because, as a boy, the Shah had been Subuddhi Rāya's servant. It appears that Subuddhi Rāya was elderly, yet while he was living in Mathurā he showed Rūpa Gosvāmī the twelve forests of Vṛndāvana.
