FILE INFO
Caption"Lord Jagannatha's prashad is sold by shopkeepers, and that which is not sold decomposes after two or three days. All the decomposed food is thrown before the cows from Tailanga at the Simha-dvara gate. Because of its rotten odor, even the cows cannot eat it. At night Raghunatha dasa would collect that decomposed rice, bring it home and wash it with ample water. Then he ate the hard inner portion of the rice with salt.
One day Svarupa Damodara saw the activities of Raghunatha dasa. Thus he smiled and asked for a small portion of that food and ate it. Svarup Damodara said, 'You eat such nectar every day, but you never offer it to us. Where is your character?' When Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu heard news of this from the mouth of Govinda, He went there the next day and spoke as follows. 'What nice things are you eating? Why don't you give anything to Me?' Saying this, He forcibly took a morsel and began to eat."
-Chaitanya-caritamrita, Antya-lila, 6.315-322
