|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 18: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu's Visit to Śrī Vṛndāvana|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 18.213
aiche līlā kare prabhu śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya
'paścime' āsiyā kaila yavanādi dhanya
aiche — in that way; līlā — pastimes; kare — performed; prabhu — the Lord; śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya — Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; paścime — to the western part of India; āsiyā — coming; kaila — made; yavana-ādi — meat-eaters and others; dhanya — fortunate.
In this way Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu performed His pastimes. Coming to the western part of India, He bestowed good fortune upon the yavanas and mlecchas.
The word yavana means "meat-eater." Anyone from a meat-eating community is called a yavana. One who does not strictly observe the Vedic regulative principles is called a mleccha. These words do not refer to any particular man. Even if a person is born in a brāhmaṇa, kṣatriya, vaiśya or śūdra family, he is a mleccha or yavana if he does not strictly follow the regulative principles or if he eats meat.
