|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 9: The Desire Tree of Devotional Service|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 9.16
madhya-mūla paramānanda purī mahā-dhīra
aṣṭa dike aṣṭa mūla vṛkṣa kaila sthira
madhya-mūla — the middle root; paramānanda purī — Paramānanda Purī; mahā-dhīra — most sober; aṣṭa dike — in the eight directions; aṣṭa mūla — eight roots; vṛkṣa — the tree; kaila sthira — fixed.
With the sober and grave Paramānanda Purī as the central root and the other eight roots in the eight directions, the tree of Caitanya Mahāprabhu stood firmly.
