sarva-kāla āche ei sudṛḍha 'niyama'
'prabhu yadi prasāda pāñā karena śayana
govinda āsiyā kare pāda-samvāhana
tabe yāi' prabhura 'śeṣa' karena bhojana'
sarva-kāla — all the time; āche — there is; ei — this; su-dṛḍha — hard-and-fast; niyama — regulation; prabhu — Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; yadi — when; prasāda pāñā — after taking His meals; karena śayana — lies down; govinda — Govinda; āsiyā — coming; kare — performs; pāda-samvāhana — massaging the legs; tabe — thereafter; yāi' — going; prabhura — of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; śeṣa — the remnants of food; karena bhojana — eats.
It was a steady, long-standing rule that Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu would lie down to rest after lunch and Govinda would come to massage His legs. Then Govinda would honor the remnants of food left by Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu.
