ei-mata prati-dina karena vancana
sannyasira sanga-bhaye na manena nimantrana
ei-mata—in this way; prati-dina—daily; karena vancana—denies other inviters; sannyasira—of the Mayavadi sannyasis; sanga-bhaye—from fear of the association; na manena—does not accept; nimantrana—invitation.
Every day Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu refused their invitation because He feared associating with Mayavadi sannyasis.
A Vaisnava sannyasi never accepts an invitation from a party who considers Mayavadi sannyasis and Vaisnava sannyasis to be one and the same. In other words, Vaisnava sannyasis do not at all like to associate with Mayavadi sannyasis, to say nothing of eating together. This principle must be followed by the sannyasis of the Krsna consciousness movement. That is the instruction of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu given by His personal behavior.
