|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 5: The Activities of Sākṣi-gopāla|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 5.148
nityānande kahe prabhu, — deha mora daṇḍa
nityānanda bale, — daṇḍa haila tina khaṇḍa
nityānande — to Lord Nityānanda; kahe — asks; prabhu — Lord Caitanya; deha — give; mora — My; daṇḍa — sannyāsa staff; nityānanda bale — Śrī Nityānanda replies; daṇḍa — Your sannyāsa staff; haila — became; tina khaṇḍa — divided into three parts.
When Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu had thus regained external consciousness, He asked Lord Nityānanda Prabhu, "Please return My staff."
Nityānanda Prabhu then replied, "It has been broken into three parts."
