CC Madhya 18.31
- aiche mleccha-bhaye gopāla bhāge bāre-bāre
- mandira chāḍi’ kuñje rahe, kibā grāmāntare
aiche—in that way; mleccha-bhaye—because of fear of the Muslims; gopāla—the Deity of Gopāla Rāya; bhāge—runs away; bāre-bāre—again and again; mandira chāḍi’—giving up the temple; kuñje—in the bush; rahe—remains; kibā—or; grāma-antare—in a different village.
Due to fear of the Muslims, the Gopāla Deity was moved from one place to another again and again. Thus giving up His temple, Lord Gopāla would sometimes live in a bush and sometimes in one village after another.
