CaptionIn the last eighteen years of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's presence on this earth, described in the Antya-lila of Chaitanya-caritamrita, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu drifted deeper and deeper into trances of spiritual ecstasy. On one such occasion, Lord Chaitanya fell unconscious, His arms and legs entered His body exactly like a tortoise, His mouth was foaming and tears were flowing from His eyes. Within He was experiencing transcendental bliss. The devotees were concerned seeing His external state and tried to wake Him. Finally, when the Lord was awakened by their loud chanting of the maha-mantra, His whole body returned to normal and He asked, "Where have you brought Me? After hearing the vibration of a flute, I went to Vrndavana, and there I saw that Krishna, the son of Maharaja Nanda, was playing on His flute in the pasturing grounds. He brought Srimati Radharani to a bower by signaling with His flute. Then He entered within that bower to perform pastimes with Her. I entered that bower just behind Krishna, My ears captivated by the sound of His ornaments. I saw Krishna and the gopis enjoying all kinds of pastimes while laughing and joking together. Hearing their vocal expressions enhanced the joy of My ears. Just then, all of you made a tumultuous sound and brought Me back here by force. Because you brought Me back here, I could no longer hear the nectarean voices of Krishna and the gopis, nor could I hear the sounds of their ornaments or the flute."
-Excerpt from Chaitanya-caritamrita, Antya-lila 17.22-27
