kata-kṣaṇe rahi’ prabhu tāre āliṅgiyā
vidāya karila tāre śakti sañcāriyā


SYNONYMS

kata-kṣaṇe rahi’—after remaining for some time; prabhu—Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; tāre—each of them; āliṅgiyā—embracing; vidāya karila—bade farewell; tāre—in each of them; śakti—spiritual potency; sañcāriyā—investing.


TRANSLATION

After some time the Lord would embrace these people and bid them return home, having invested each of them with spiritual potency.


PURPORT

In his Amṛta-pravāha-bhāṣya, Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura explains that this spiritual potency is the essence of the pleasure potency and the knowledge potency. By these two potencies, one is empowered with devotional service. Lord Kṛṣṇa Himself or His representative, the unalloyed devotee, can mercifully bestow these combined potencies upon any man. Being thus endowed with such potencies, one can become an unalloyed devotee of the Lord. Anyone favored by Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu was empowered with this bhakti-śakti. Thus the Lord’s followers were able to preach Kṛṣṇa consciousness by divine grace.
