prabhura icchā nāhi, tāre kauḍi chāḍāibe
dviguṇa vartana kari’ punaḥ ‘viṣaya’ dibe

prabhura icchā — the wish of the Lord; nāhi — was not; tāre kauḍi chāḍāibe — he be excused from the dues; dvi-guṇa — twice as much; vartana kari’ — increasing the salary; punaḥ — again; viṣaya dibe — he should be appointed to the post.

It was not the desire of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu that Gopīnātha Paṭṭanāyaka be excused of his debt to the government, nor was it His desire that his salary be doubled or that he be reappointed collector at the same place.
