tathāpi purī dekhi' tāṅra 'vaiṣṇava,-ācāra
'śiṣya' kari' tāṅra bhikṣā kaila aṅgīkāra
tathāpi—still; purī—Mādhavendra Purī; dekhi'-after seeing; tāṅra—of the brāhmaṇa; vaiṣṇava-ācāra—behavior like a Vaiṣṇava; śiṣya kari'-accepting him as his disciple; tāṅra bhikṣā—food offered by him; kaila aṅgīkāra—accepted.
Although the brāhmaṇa belonged to the Sanoḍiyā community, Śrīla Mādhavendra Purī saw that he behaved like a Vaiṣṇava and therefore accepted him as his disciple. The food he cooked was also accepted by Mādhavendra Purī.
