TEXT 276
sva-madhurya radha-prema-rasa asvadite
radha-bhava angi kariyache bhala-mate
sva-madhuryaHis own conjugal love; radha-prema-rasathe mellow of the loving affairs between Radharani and Krsna; asvaditeto taste; radha-bhavathe mood of Srimati Radharani; angi kariyacheHe accepted; bhala-matevery well.
To taste the mellows of Srimati Radharani's loving affairs in Her relationship with Krsna, and to understand the reservoir of pleasure in Krsna, Krsna Himself, as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, accepted the mood of Radharani.
In this connection Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura writes in his Anubhasya, "Sri Gaurasundara is Krsna Himself with the attitude of Srimati Radharani. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu never gave up the attitude of the gopis. He remained everlastingly predominated by Krsna and never accepted the part of the predominator by imitating conjugal love with an ordinary woman, as sahajiyas generally do. He never placed Himself in the position of a debauchee. Lusty materialists like the members of the sahajiya-sampradaya hanker after women, even others' wives. But when they try to ascribe the responsibility for their lusty activities to Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, they become offenders to Svarupa Damodara and Srila Vrndavana dasa Thakura. In Sri Caitanya-bhagavata, Adi-khanda, Chapter Fifteen, it is said:
sabe para-strira prati nahi parihasa
stri dekhi' dure prabhu hayena eka-pasa
'Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu never even joked with others' wives. As soon as He saw a woman coming, He would immediately give her ample room to pass without talking.' He was extremely strict regarding the association of women. The sahajiyas, however, pose as followers of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu although they indulge in lusty affairs with women. In His youth Lord Caitanya was very humorous with everyone, but He never joked with any woman, nor in this incarnation did He talk about women. The gauranga-nagari party is not approved by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu or Vrndavana dasa Thakura. Even though one may offer all kinds of prayers to Caitanya Mahaprabhu, one should strictly avoid worshiping Him as the Gauranga Nagara. The personal behavior of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and the verses written by Sri Vrndavana dasa Thakura have completely repudiated the lusty desires of the gauranga-nagaris."
