TEXT 217
dui bhai mili' vrndavane vasa kaila
prabhura ye ajna, dunhe saba nirvahila
dui bhaiboth brothers; mili'-meeting; vrndavanein Vrndavana; vasa kailaresided; prabhura ye ajnawhatever was ordered by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; dunheboth of them; sabaall; nirvahilaexecuted.
The brothers met at Vrndavana, where they stayed to execute the will of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
"When will Srila Rupa Gosvami Prabhupada, who has established within the material world the mission to fulfill the desire of Lord Caitanya, give me shelter under his lotus feet?" Srila Rupa Gosvami and Sanatana Gosvami were previously ministers directly in charge of the government of Nawab Hussain Shah, and they were also householders, but later they became gosvamis. A gosvami, therefore, is one who executes the will of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. The title "gosvami" is not an inherited designation; it is meant for a person who has controlled his sense gratification and dedicated his life to executing the order of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Therefore Srila Sanatana Gosvami and Srila Rupa Gosvami became genuine gosvamis after dedicating their lives to the service of the Lord.
