His Divine Grace
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


ei dui-ghare prabhu ekādaśī dine
viṣṇura naivedya māgi’ khāila āpane


ei dui-ghare—in these two houses; prabhu—the Lord; ekādaśī dine—on the Ekādaśī day; viṣṇura—of Lord Viṣṇu; naivedya—food offered to Lord Viṣṇu; māgi’—begging; khāila—ate; āpane—personally.


In their two houses Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu begged food on the Ekādaśī day and personally ate it.


The injunction to fast on Ekādaśī is especially meant for devotees; on Ekādaśī there are no restrictions regarding food that may be offered to the Lord. Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu took the food of Lord Viṣṇu in His ecstasy as viṣṇu-tattva.
