TEXT 180

SYNONYMS

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.


TRANSLATION

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.
