vipra-gṛhe—in the house of a brāhmaṇa; gopālera—of Lord Gopāla; nibhṛte—very secretly; sevana—worship; grāma—the village; ujāḍa haila—became deserted; palāila—fled; sarva-jana—all the people.
The Gopāla Deity was kept in the house of a brāhmaṇa, and His worship was conducted secretly. Everyone fled, and thus the village of Annakūṭa was deserted.
