TEXT 116
prabhu kahe,--'adi-vasya' duhkha kanhe mane?
keba ki diyache, taha anaha ekhane'
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.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu replied, "Why are you so foolishly unhappy? Bring here to Me whatever they have given you."
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."
