SYNONYMS
jala-lila kari'-after finishing the pastimes on the water; govinda—Lord Jagannatha in His moving form as Govinda; calila alaya—returned to His place; nija-gana—His devotees; lana—taking; prabhu—Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; gela—went; deva-alaya—to the temple.
TRANSLATION
After concluding His pastimes in the water, Lord Govinda returned to His residence. Then Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu went to the temple, taking all His devotees with Him.
PURPORT
The Deity referred to herein as Govinda is the vijaya-vigraha in the temple of Jagannatha. When there is a need to take Jagannatha somewhere, the vijaya-vigraha is taken because the body of Jagannatha is very heavy. The vijaya-vigraha in the Jagannatha temple is known as Govinda. For the pastimes in the Narendrasarovara, the vijaya-vigraha was carried there instead of Lord Jagannatha.
