CC Madhya 19.108

Text

dekhi’ vallabha-bhaṭṭa mane camatkāra haila
dui putra āni’ prabhura caraṇe pāḍila

Synonyms

dekhi’ — seeing; vallabha-bhaṭṭa — of Vallabha Bhaṭṭācārya; mane — in the mind; camatkāra haila — there was astonishment; dui putra āni’ — bringing his two sons; prabhura caraṇe pāḍila — made them lie at the lotus feet of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu.

Translation

Vallabha Bhaṭṭācārya was struck with wonder to see Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Raghupati Upādhyāya dance. He even brought forward his two sons and made them fall down at the Lord’s lotus feet.

Purport

The two sons of Vallabhācārya were Gopīnātha and Viṭhṭhaleśvara. When Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu visited Prayāga in the year 1434 or 1435 Śakābda Era (A.D. 1512 or 1513), Viṭhṭhaleśvara was not yet born. In this regard, one should see Madhya-līlā 18.47.
