gopinatha acaryere kahe sarvabhauma
gosanira janite cahi kahan purvasrama
gopinatha acaryere—to Gopinatha Acarya; kahe—said; sarvabhauma—Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya; gosanira—of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu; janite—to know; cahi—I want; kahan—what; purva-asrama—previous situation.
Sarvabhauma then said to Gopinatha Acarya, "I want to know Caitanya Mahaprabhu's previous situation."
The word purvasrama refers to one's previous situation in life. Sometimes a person will accept the renounced order from householder life, and sometimes even from student (brahmacari) life. Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya wanted to know of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's previous situation as a householder.
