TRANSLATION
They would extend invitations to the Lord. Vasudeva Datta, Gadadhara dasa, Murari Gupta, the inhabitants of Kulina-grama and Khanda and many other devotees who were not brahmanas by caste would purchase food offered to Lord Jagannatha and then extend invitations to Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
PURPORT
The inhabitants of Kulina-grama, such as Satyaraja Khan and Ramananda Vasu, were not brahmanas by caste, nor were the inhabitants of Khanda, such as Mukunda dasa, Narahari dasa and Raghunandana. Therefore they would purchase prasada from the market where the remnants of Lord Jagannatha's food was sold and then extend invitations to Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, whereas Acaryaratna, Acaryanidhi and others who were brahmanas by caste would cook at home when they invited the Lord. Caitanya Mahaprabhu observed the etiquette then current in society by accepting only prasada cooked by members of the brahmana caste, but on principle He accepted invitations from His devotees, regardless of whether they were brahmanas by caste.
