TEXT 116
prabhu kahe,--'ādi-vasyā' duḥkha kāṅhe māne?
kebā ki diyāche, tāhā ānaha ekhāne'
prabhu kahe—the Lord replied; ādi-vasyā—you who have been residing with Me for a very long time; duḥkha kāṅhe māne—why are you unhappy about this; kebā ki diyāche—whatever they have delivered; tāhā—all that; ānaha ekhāne—bring here.
Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu replied, "Why are you so foolishly unhappy? Bring here to Me whatever they have given you."
Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura explains that the word ādi-vasyā refers to one who has been living with another for a very long time. Govinda was addressed as ādi-vasyā because he had been living with Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu 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."
