|Madhya-lila||Chapter 11: The Beda-kirtana Pastimes of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrita Madhya 11.111
raja kahe, -- upavasa, kshaura -- tirthera vidhana
taha na kariya kene khaiba anna-pana
raja kahe -- the King said; upavasa -- fasting; kshaura -- shaving; tirthera vidhana -- this is the regulation for visiting a holy place; taha -- that; na kariya -- without performing; kene -- why; khaiba -- they shall eat; anna-pana -- solid and liquid food.
The King then asked the Bhattacarya, "Why have the devotees not observed the regulations for visiting the pilgrimage place, such as fasting, shaving and so on? Why have they first eaten prasadam?"
