CC Antya 8.86


tabe sabe meli’ prabhure bahu yatna kailā
sabāra āgrahe prabhu ardheka rākhilā


tabe — thereafter; sabe meli’ — when all the devotees came together; prabhure — unto Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; bahu yatna kailā — requested fervently; sabāra āgrahe — due to the eagerness of all of them; prabhu — Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; ardheka rākhilā — accepted half.


When they all requested very fervently that Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu take a full meal, He still would not do so. Instead, He responded to their request by accepting half as much as usual.
