|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 8: Talks Between Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Rāmānanda Rāya|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 8.102
curi kari' rādhāke nila gopī-gaṇera ḍare
anyāpekṣā haile premera gāḍhatā nā sphure
curi kari' — stealing; rādhāke — Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī; nila — took away; gopī-gaṇera — of the gopīs; ḍare — out of fear; anya-apekṣā — dependence on others; haile — if there is; premera — of love; gāḍhatā — the intensity; nā — not; sphure — manifests.
"During the rāsa dance Śrī Kṛṣṇa did not exchange loving affairs with Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī due to the presence of the other gopīs. Because of the dependence of the others, the intensity of love between Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa was not manifest. Therefore He stole Her away.
Out of fear of the other gopīs, Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa took Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī to a secluded place. In this regard, the verse kaḿsārir api (verse 106 in this chapter) will be quoted from the Gīta-govinda of Jayadeva Gosvāmī.
