CaptionMadhavendra Puri was regularly serving the deity of Gopala atop Govardhana hill. One day he had a dream in which Gopala came to him and said, "My bodily temperature still has not decreased. Please bring sandalwood from the Malaya province and smear the pulp over My body to cool Me." So Madhavendra Puri gave different people various duties to continue the regular worship of Gopala, and he left for Bengal. During his travel, he visited the temple of Gopinatha in Remuna. Finally he reached Jagannatha Puri where he told all the devotees the story of the appearance of Sri Gopala and His request for sandalwood. They all together collected the sandalwood as well as provided Madhavendra Puri with the necessary traveling expenses and government paperwork to get past the toll collectors. On his way back, he again stopped in Remuna and took rest in the temple of Gopinatha. That night Madhavendra Puri dreamt that Gopala came before him and said, "O Madhavendra Puri, I have already received all the sandalwood and camphor. Now just grind all the sandalwood together with the camphor and then smear the pulp on the body of Gopinatha daily until it is finished. There is no difference between My body and Gopinatha's body. They are one and the same. Therefore if you smear the sandalwood pulp on the body of Gopinatha, you will naturally also smear it on My body. Thus the temperature of My body will be reduced."
-Summarized from Chaitanya-caritamrita, Madhya-lila 4.106-160
