gauranga-gunete jhure, nitya-lila tare sphure
(Gaurangera duti pada, 2)
One who is completely absorbed in the sweet pastimes of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Krsna-lila will automatically manifest in his heart, because Gaurasundara in non-different from Krsna. Krsna manifested in this Kali-yuga in the form of Sacinandana Gaurahari and took Srimati Radhika’s mood and complexion:
radhikara bhava kanti angikar kori
krsna avatirna hoila gauranga rupa dhari
“Antar krsna bahir gaura”, Caitanya Mahaprabhu is Krsna on the inside, but externally He is Gaura. Gauranga-lila means separation mood (vipralambha-mayi-lila) and Krsna-lila is sambhoga-mayi-lila (meeting lila). Krsna’s many sweet pastimes are beyond our material conception; you cannot understand it. If you are not in a very high level, as like Sukadeva Gosvamipada, uttam-uttam maha-bhagavata, it is very difficult to understand some of Krsna’s confidential lilas. For example, Krsna steals the cloths of the gopis; He performs rasa-lila with them and He also do water-sporting and boat-sporting with the gopis and this is beyond the rules and regulations of the society. In this way, Krsna’s many confidential lilas, if you listen from Srimad-Bhagavatam, maybe your mind will be very disturbed, because it is very difficult to reconcile. But Gaura-lila, you may understand; Chaiyanya Mahaprabhu’s lila is very sweet. For this regard, our acaryas explain, if you absorb in Gaura-lila, then by the causeless mercy of Sacinandana Gaurahari, you may understand about Krsna-lila; all our acaryas explain that again and again you have to listen Gaura-lila.
