|Caption||After taking prasadam, Lord Chaitanya lay down at the door of Gambhira and His servant Govinda came to massage His legs as he did often. This time when the Lord lay down, He blocked the entire doorway. Govinda requested Lord Chaitanya to kindly turn on one side so he could enter, but the Lord replied that He didn't have the strength to move His body. For the sake of his service, Govinda entered the room by crossing over Lord Chaitanya's body. He thought to himself that if he had to commit offenses or go to hell, he would do so for the sake of service to the Lord.|
