|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 4: Śrī Mādhavendra Puri's Devotional Service|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 4.208
gopīnātha-rūpe yadi kariyāchena bhojana
bhakti dekhāite kaila prasāda bhakṣaṇa
gopīnātha-rūpe — in His arcā incarnation as Gopīnātha; yadi — although; kariyāchena — has done; bhojana — eating; bhakti — devotional service; dekhāite — to exhibit; kaila — did; prasāda bhakṣaṇa — eating.
Being identical with the Gopīnātha Deity, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu had already tasted and eaten the pots of sweet rice. Yet just to manifest devotional service, He again ate the pots of sweet rice as a devotee.
