|Adi-lila||Chapter 17: The Pastimes of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu in His Youth|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrta Adi 17.88
ei mata bara-masa kirtana-avasane
amra-mahotsava prabhu kare dine dine
ei mata -- in this way; bara-masa -- for twelve months; kirtana -- chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra; avasane -- at the end; amra-maha-utsava -- festival of eating mangoes; prabhu -- the Lord; kare -- performs; dine dine -- every day.
In this way the Lord performed sankirtana every day, and at the end of sankirtana there was a mango-eating festival every day for twelve months.
On principle, Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu would distribute prasadam at the end of kirtana performances. Similarly, the members of the Krsna consciousness movement must distribute some prasadam to the audience after performing kirtana.
