Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 13.23
pañca-daśa dina īśvara mahā-lakṣmī lañā
tāńra sańge krīḍā kaila nibhṛte vasiyā
pañca-daśa dina — fifteen days; īśvara — the Lord; mahā-lakṣmī — the supreme goddess of fortune; lañā — with; tāńra sańge — in her company; krīḍā — enjoyment; kaila — performed; nibhṛte — in a solitary place; vasiyā — sitting.
For fifteen days the Lord had remained in a secluded place with the supreme goddess of fortune and had performed His pastimes with her.
The fifteen-day period of anavasara is also called nibhṛta, in honor of the solitary place where the supreme goddess of fortune lives. After living there a fortnight, Lord Jagannātha took permission from the goddess of fortune to leave.
