TEXT 170

dināntare paṇḍita kaila prabhura nimantraṇa
prabhu tāhāṅ bhikṣā kaila lañā nija-gaṇa


dina-antare—another day; paṇḍita—Gadādhara Paṇḍita; kaila prabhura nimantraṇa—invited Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; prabhu—Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; tāhāṅ—there; bhikṣā kaila—took prasādam; lañā nija-gaṇa—with His personal associates.


Another day, Gadādhara Paṇḍita invited Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu to dinner. The Lord took prasādam at his home with His personal associates.


Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura comments that Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu acted as a very merciful well-wisher toward Vallabha Bhaṭṭa by externally neglecting him in many ways to purify him of his false pride in being a learned scholar. The Lord neglected Gadādhara Paṇḍita for a few days because of his associating with Vallabha Bhaṭṭa. Actually He was not at all displeased with Gadādhara Paṇḍita. Indeed, because Gadādhara Paṇḍita is the personal potency of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu, there is no chance of the Lord’s being dissatisfied with him. However, a person who is too much attracted to externals cannot understand the deep meaning of these dealings of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. If one therefore becomes disrespectful to Gadādhara Paṇḍita, he will surely be vanquished.
