TEXT 135
kabhu yadi ei premara ha-iye asraya
tabe ei premanandera anubhava haya
kabhu—sometime; yadi—if; ei—this; premara—of the love; ha-iye—I become; asraya—the abode; tabe—then; ei—this; prema-anandera—of the joy of love; anubhava—experience; haya—there is.
"If sometime I can be the abode of that love, only then may I taste its joy."
Visaya and asraya are two very significant words relating to the reciprocation between Krsna and His devotee. The devotee is called the asraya, and his beloved, Krsna, is the visaya. Different ingredients are involved in the exchange of love between the asraya and visaya, which are known as vibhava, anubhava, sattvika and vyabhicari. Vibhava is divided into the two categories alambana and uddipana. Alambana may be further divided into asraya and visaya. In the loving affairs of Radha and Krsna, Radharani is the asraya feature and Krsna the visaya. The transcendental consciousness of the Lord tells Him, "I am Krsna, and I experience pleasure as the visaya. The pleasure enjoyed by Radharani, the asraya, is many times greater than the pleasure I feel." Therefore, to feel the pleasure of the asraya category, Lord Krsna appeared as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
