TRANSLATION
Another day, Gadadhara Pandita invited Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu to dinner. The Lord took prasada at his home with His personal associates.
PURPORT
Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura comments that Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu acted as a very merciful well-wisher toward Vallabha Bhatta by externally neglecting him in many ways to purify him of his false pride in being a learned scholar. The Lord neglected Gadadhara Pandita for a few days because of his associating with Vallabha Bhatta. Actually He was not at all displeased with Gadadhara Pandita. Indeed, because Gadadhara Pandita is the personal potency of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, there is no chance of the Lord's being dissatisfied with him. However, a person who is too attracted to externals cannot understand the deep meaning of these dealings of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. If one therefore becomes disrespectful to Gadadhara Pandita, he will surely be vanquished.
