Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu requested Raghupati Upādhyāya to continue speaking about the pastimes of Śrī Kṛṣṇa. Thus the Lord was absorbed in ecstatic love, and His mind and body slackened.

Purport

Our minds and bodies are always engaged in material activities. When they are activated on the spiritual platform, they slacken on the material platform.
