|Seeing the Gopala Deity, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was immediately overwhelmed with ecstatic love and He began to chant and dance. The Lord recited the following verse, "May the left arm of Sri Krishna, whose eyes are like petals of a lotus flower, always protect you. With His left arm He raised Govardhana Hill as if it were a toy." (verse found in Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu, 2.1.62) Then, Lord Chaitanya continued to chant and dance for the rest of the day.
-Summarized from Chaitanya-caritamrita, Madhya-lila 18.36-38
