TEXT 210

darśana-lobhete kari' maryādā laṅghana
bhoga-maṇḍape yāñā kare śrī-mukha darśana


SYNONYMS

darśana-lobhete—being very anxious to see; kari'—doing; maryādā laṅghana—transgressions of regulative principles; bhoga-maṇḍape—in the room for offering food; yāñā—going; kare—do; śrī-mukha darśana—seeing the lotus face.


TRANSLATION

Out of great eagerness to see the Lord, they all neglected the regulative principles and, just to see the Lord's face, went to the place where the food was offered.


PURPORT

There are many regulative principles of Deity worship. For example, one is not allowed to enter the room where food is offered to Lord Jagannātha. But in this case, being very anxious because of not having seen the Lord for fifteen days, all the people overruled the regulative principles and entered the room.
