TRANSLATION
"My dear Sanatana, the sweetness of Krsna's personality is just like an ocean of ambrosia. Although My mind is now afflicted by convulsive diseases and I wish to drink that entire ocean, the repressive physician does not allow Me to drink even one drop.
PURPORT
When there is a combination of kapha, pitta and vayu, the three bodily elements, there occurs sannipati, or a convulsive disease. "This disease is caused by the personal features of Lord Krsna. The three elements are the beauty of Krsna's body, the beauty of His face, and the beauty of His smile. Stricken by these three beauties, My mind goes into convulsions. It wishes to drink the ocean of Krsna's beauty, but because I am undergoing convulsions, My physician, who is Sri Krsna Himself, does not even allow Me to take a drop of water from that ocean." Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu was ecstatic in this way because He was presenting Himself in the mood of the gopis. The gopis wanted to drink the ocean of sweetness arising from the bodily features of Krsna, but Krsna did not allow them to come near. Consequently their desire to meet Krsna increased, and being unable to drink the ambrosia of Krsna's bodily features, they became very unhappy.
