TEXT 116
prabhu kahe,--'adi-vasya' duhkha kanhe mane?
keba ki diyache, taha anaha ekhane'
SYNONYMS
prabhu kahe—the Lord replied; adi-vasya—you who have been residing with Me for a very long time; duhkha kanhe mane—why are you unhappy about this; keba ki diyache—whatever they have delivered; taha—all that; anaha ekhane—bring here.
TRANSLATION
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu replied, "Why are you so foolishly unhappy? Bring here to Me whatever they have given you."
PURPORT
Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura explains that the word adi-vasya refers to one who has been living with another for a very long time. Govinda was addressed as adi-vasya because he had been living with Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu for a very long time, whereas other devotees, who were mostly new, would come and go. In effect, the Lord told Govinda, "Since you have been living with Me for a long time, you should not be foolishly disappointed in this situation. Bring all the food to Me, and you will see that I can eat it."
