|Madhya-lila||Chapter 7: The Lord Begins His Tour of South India|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrita Madhya 7.131-132
pathe yaite devalaye rahe yei grame
yanra ghare bhiksha kare, sei maha-jane
kurme yaiche riti, taiche kaila sarva-thani
nilacale punah yavat na aila gosani
pathe yaite -- while passing on the road; devalaye -- in a temple; rahe -- He stays; yei grame -- in any village; yanra ghare -- at whose place; bhiksha kare -- takes alms or eats; sei maha-jane -- to such a great personality; kurme -- unto the brahmana Kurma; yaiche -- just as; riti -- the process; taiche -- in the same way; kaila -- did; sarva-thani -- in all places; nilacale -- to Jagannatha Puri; punah -- again; yavat -- until; na -- not; aila -- returned; gosani -- the Lord.
While on His tour, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu would spend the night at a temple or on the roadside. Whenever He accepted food from a person, He would give him the same advice He gave the brahmana named Kurma. He adopted this process until He returned to Jagannatha Puri from His South Indian tour.
