TEXT 18
prabhura atarkya-lila bujhite na pari
sva-sanga chadana kene pathaya kasipuri
SYNONYMS
prabhura—Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu's; atarkya-lila—inconceivable pastimes; bujhite—to understand; na—not; pari—able; sva-sanga—personal association; chadana—avoiding; kene—why; pathaya—sends; kasi-puri—to Benares.
TRANSLATION
I cannot understand the inconceivable pastimes of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, for although Tapana Misra wanted to live with Him in Navadvipa, the Lord advised him to go to Varanasi.
PURPORT
When Tapana Misra met Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Lord Caitanya was living in household life, and there was no indication that in the future He would accept the sannyasa order. But by asking Tapana Misra to go to Varanasi He indicated that in the future He would accept sannyasa and that when He would teach Sanatana Gosvami, Tapana Misra would take advantage of the opportunity to learn the object of life and the real process of attaining it.
