Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 11.113
īśvarera parokṣa ājñā — kṣaura, upoṣaṇa
prabhura sākṣāt ājñā — prasāda-bhojana
īśvarera — of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; parokṣa — indirect; ājñā — order; kṣaura — shaving; upoṣaṇa — fasting; prabhura — of the Lord; sākṣāt — direct; ājñā — order; prasāda-bhojana — to take the prasādam.
"The scriptural injunctions for shaving and fasting are indirect orders of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. However, when there is a direct order from the Lord to take prasādam, naturally the devotees take prasādam as their first duty.
