TRANSLATION
Accompanied by His devotees, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu then went into the garden and enjoyed the pastimes of Vrndavana.
PURPORT
Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura has pointed out that this vrndavana-vihara-the pastimes of Vrndavana-does not refer to Krsna's mixing with the gopis or the transcendental mellow of parakiya-rasa. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's vrndavana-lila in the garden of Jagannatha Puri did not involve association with women or with other people's wives in the fashion transcendentally demonstrated by Sri Krsna. In His vrndavana-lila, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu conceived of Himself as the assistant of Srimati Radharani. When Srimati Radharani enjoyed the company of Krsna, Her maidservants were very pleased. One should not compare Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's vrndavana-vihara in the garden of Jagannatha with the activities of the gauranga-nagaris.
