Synonyms

śaṅkare dekhiyā — seeing Śaṅkara; prabhu — the Lord; kahe — says; dāmodare — unto Dāmodara; sa-gaurava-prīti — affection with awe and reverence; āmāra — My; tomāra upare — upon you.

Translation

After seeing Śaṅkara, Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu told Dāmodara, “My affection for you is on the platform of awe and reverence.

Purport

Here the Lord is addressing Dāmodara Paṇḍita, who is different from Svarūpa Dāmodara. Dāmodara Paṇḍita is the elder brother of Śaṅkara. Thus the Lord informed Dāmodara that His affection toward him was on the platform of awe and reverence. However, the Lord’s affection toward his younger brother, Śaṅkara, was on the platform of pure love.
