Srila Baladeva Vidyabhushana

Balabhadra Bhattacharya submitted his prayer before Lord Chaitanya that he desired to go to the banks of the Ganges. So, the next morning, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu got up early and took His bath. Then He became filled with ecstatic love, thinking how He now had to leave Vrndavana. Balabhadra Bhattacharya saw Him and said, "Let us go to Mahavana [Gokula].Saying this, he had Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu get aboard a boat and they crossed the river. Rajaputa Krishnadasa, the Sanodiya brahmana and Balabhadra Bhattacharya's assistant brahmana were also with them. While walking, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu understood that the others were fatigued, and He took them beneath a tree to sit down. Near that tree there were many cows grazing. Suddenly a cowherd boy blew on his flute. The Lord was immediately struck with ecstatic love and He fell to the ground unconscious. He foamed at the mouth and even His breathing stopped.At that time, ten Muslim cavalry soldiers rode up to that spot and saw the Lord unconscious. The soldiers thought, "This sannyasi must have possessed a large quantity of gold. These four rogues here must have taken away that sannyasi's riches after killing Him by making Him take the poison dhutura." They decided to arrest the four persons and kill them. Krishnadasa and the Sanodiya brahmana were fearless and they spoke very bravely. The brahmana said, "You Pathana soldiers are all under the protection of your king. Let us go to your commander and get his decision. This sannyasi is my spiritual master, and I am from Mathura. I am a brahmana, and I know many people who are in the service of the Muslim king. This sannyasi sometimes falls unconscious due to the influence of a disease. Please sit down here, and you will see that He will very soon regain consciousness and His normal condition."-Summary and quotations from Chaitanya-caritamrita, Madhya-lila, 18.148-170
