CC Madhya 17.180
- tathāpi purī dekhi’ tāṅra ‘vaiṣṇava’-ācāra
- ‘śiṣya’ kari’ tāṅra bhikṣā kaila aṅgīkāra
tathāpi—still; purī—Mādhavendra Purī; dekhi’—after seeing; tāṅra—of the brāhmaṇa; vaiṣṇava-ācāra—behavior like a Vaiṣṇava; śiṣya kari’—accepting him as his disciple; tāṅra bhikṣā—food offered by him; kaila aṅgīkāra—accepted.
Although the brāhmaṇa belonged to the Sanoḍiyā community, Śrīla Mādhavendra Purī had seen that he behaved like a Vaiṣṇava and had therefore accepted him as his disciple. The food he had cooked had also been accepted by Mādhavendra Purī.
