|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 17: The Pastimes of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu in His Youth|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 17.164
kalau pañca vivarjayet
aśva-medham — a sacrifice offering a horse; gava-ālambham — a sacrifice of cows; sannyāsam — the renounced order of life; pala-paitṛkam — an offering of oblations of flesh to the forefathers; devareṇa — by a husband's brother; suta-utpattim — begetting children; kalau — in the Age of Kali; pañca — five; vivarjayet — one must give up.
"'In this Age of Kali, five acts are forbidden: the offering of a horse in sacrifice, the offering of a cow in sacrifice, the acceptance of the order of sannyāsa, the offering of oblations of flesh to the forefathers, and a man's begetting children in his brother's wife.'
This is a quotation from the Brahma-vaivarta Purāṇa (Kṛṣṇa-janma-khaṇḍa 185.180).
