Commentary: Gauḍīya-bhāṣya by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura:
Śrī Sanātana Miśra took birth in the family of Rāja-paṇḍitas. Poets headed by Jayadeva, the author of Śrī Gīta-govinda, were renowned as Rāja-paṇḍitas. Lakṣmīdevī, the daughter in the family of Rāja-paṇḍitas, incarnated to serve Śrī Śrī Gaura-Nārāyaṇa. On seeing Śrī Gaura- Nārāyaṇa’s display of vipralambha rather than opulence, Śrī Lakṣmī could not remain steady. In order to serve the Lord’s vipralambha pastimes, she abandoned all the opulence of Vaikuṇṭha and manifested a mood of subordination to Lord Caitanya’s feelings of separation in the pastimes of Śrī Caitanya. In order to demonstrate that the feelings of separation, which enhance the concept of conjugal pastimes, that Lord
Kṛṣṇa exhibited in His Gaura pastimes are supremely relevant for unfortunate people, Gaurasundara became the life and soul of the Rāja- paṇḍita’s daughter. May those pastimes be glorified. The knowledge manifested from the words of various languages derived from base languages like Brāhmī, Kharoṣṭī, Sānkī, and Puṣkarāsādī fades in the presence of vidvad-rūḍhi. Thirst for material enjoyment entraps the living entities in nescience and turns them away from the Lord’s service. But transcendental poets, like Śrī Jayadeva in the beginning of his Gīta- govinda, which deals with eight subjects, have revealed unfolding considerations regarding the relationship between the energies born in their families with the energetic.
