Mahaprabhu in Srivasangam and Gambhira

In the Gambhira we see the aisvarya of extreme ecstasy that keeps devotees at some distance from Mahaprabhu, but in Srivasangam there is intimacy. At times he did show aisvarya there as well but it is not the norm as it is in the Gambhira. So we want to join him in Srivasangam, but the way to do that passes through the Gambhira. Gambhira lila is also Mahaprabhu’s sannyasa lila. Renunciation is aisvarya.

In Nadiya he is attached to his friends, but this apparent external consciousness is actually more internal. Puri is more overtly spiritual just as Krsna is in the Gita, but Nadiya is higher, more intimate, and apparently less spiritual just like Krsna-lila in Vrindavana.
