CC Ādi 12.20


guṇḍicā-mandire mahāprabhura sammukhe
kīrtane nartana kare baḍa prema-sukhe


guṇḍicā-mandire — in the Guṇḍicā-mandira in Jagannātha Purī; mahāprabhura — of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu; sammukhe — in front; kīrtane — in saṅkīrtana; nartana — dancing; kare — does; baḍa — very much; prema-sukhe — in transcendental bliss.


When Lord Caitanya personally cleansed the Guṇḍicā-mandira in Jagannātha Purī, Gopāla danced in front of the Lord with great love and happiness.


The Guṇḍicā-mandira is situated in Jagannātha Purī, and every year Jagannātha, Balabhadra and Subhadrā come there from the Jagannātha temple to stay for eight days. When Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu lived at Jagannātha Purī, every year He personally cleansed this temple with His principal devotees. The Guṇḍicā-mārjana chapter of Caitanya-caritāmṛta (Madhya 12) describes this vividly.
