CC Madhya 11.113 (1975)
- īśvarera parokṣa ājñā-kṣaura, upoṣaṇa
- prabhura sākṣāt ājñā-prasāda-bhojana
īśvarera—of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; parokṣa—indirect; ājñā—order; kṣaura—shaving; upoṣaṇa—fasting; prabhura—of the Lord; sākṣāt—direct; ājñā—order; prasāda-bhojana—to take the prasāda.
"The scriptural injunctions for shaving and fasting are indirect orders of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. However, when there is a direct order from the Lord to take prasāda, naturally the devotees take prasāda as their first duty.
