Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 8.57-58
sei-dina eka-vipra kaila nimantraṇa
eka-cauṭhi bhāta, pāńca-gaṇḍāra vyañjana
ei-mātra govinda kaila ańgīkāra
māthāya ghā māre vipra, kare hāhākāra
sei-dina — that day; eka-vipra — one brāhmaṇa; kaila nimantraṇa — invited; eka-cauṭhi bhāta — one-fourth of a pot of rice; pāńca-gaṇḍāra vyañjana — vegetables worth only five gaṇḍās; ei-mātra — only this; govinda — the servant of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu; kaila ańgīkāra — accepted; māthāya — his head; ghā māre — struck; vipra — the brāhmaṇa; kare hāhā-kāra — began to say, "alas, alas."
That day, a brāhmaṇa extended an invitation to Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. When Govinda accepted only five gaṇḍās' worth of vegetables and a fourth of a pot of rice, the brāhmaṇa, in great despair, struck his head with his hand and cried, "Alas! Alas!"
