From the Gaudiya Bhasya of Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura:


radha-bhave nija-bhranti,    suvalita radha-kanti,

audarye madhurya aprakasha

audarye madhurya-bhrama,    na karibe tahe shrama,

bale prabhu-vrindavana-dasa


Being absorbed in the mood of Radha, Krishna forgets Himself and exhibits Her dazzling complexion. The conjugal pastimes of the Lord are not manifest in His magnanimous pastimes. Vrindavana dasa Thakura teaches us that one should not labor hard to find the conjugal pastimes of the Lord in His magnanimous pastimes.


In Cuttack, Sarasvati Thakura was searching for Chaitanya Bhagavata in 1920. He searched through many mathas but couldn't find it. Nowadays, the Chaitanya Bhagavata is available everywhere in bookshops, but at that time it wasn't. The sahajiyas didn't like the Chaitanya Bhagavata, and called it a dry book. They like Chaitanya Charitamrita, Shrimad Bhagavatam, etc., because they deal with Radha Krishna lila, but Sarasvati Thakura published Chaitanya Bhagavata - Chaitanya lila. At that time Chaitanya Bhagavata was very rare in India. Even available editions were full of errors. So, before Sarasvati Thakura's edition there was no proper one.
