jala-līlā kari'-after finishing the pastimes on the water; govinda—Lord Jagannātha in His moving form as Govinda; calilā ālaya—returned to His place; nija-gaṇa—His devotees; lañā—taking; prabhu—Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; gelā—went; deva-ālaya—to the temple.
TRANSLATION
After concluding His pastimes in the water, Lord Govinda returned to His residence. Then Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu 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 Jagannātha. When there is a need to take Jagannātha somewhere, the vijaya-vigraha is taken because the body of Jagannātha is very heavy. The vijaya-vigraha in the Jagannātha temple is known as Govinda. For the pastimes in the Narendrasarovara, the vijaya-vigraha was carried there instead of Lord Jagannātha.
