TRANSLATION
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu also offered obeisances unto Ramacandra Puri, who then embraced Him and thus remembered Krsna.
PURPORT
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu offered obeisances to Ramacandra Puri in consideration of his being a disciple of Srila Madhavendra Puri, the spiritual master of His own spiritual master, Isvara Puri. When a Vaisnava sannyasi meets another Vaisnava sannyasi, they both remember Krsna. Even Mayavadi sannyasis generally remember Narayana, who is also Krsna, by saying om namo bhagavate narayana or namo narayana. Thus it is the duty of a sannyasi to remember Krsna. According to smrti-sastra, a sannyasi does not offer obeisances or blessings to anyone. it is said, sannyasi nirasir nirnamaskriyah: a sannyasi should not offer anyone blessings or obeisances.
