prabhu kahe,--vipra kanhe kara upavasa
kene eta duhkha, kene karaha hutasa
prabhu kahe—Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu said; vipra—My dear brahmana; kanhe—why; kara upavasa—you are fasting; kene—why; eta—so much; duhkha—unhappiness; kene—why; karaha hutasa—you express so much worry.
While the brahmana was fasting, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu asked him, "Why are you fasting? Why are you so unhappy? Why are you so worried?"
