Published on Feb 09, 2015

CC Madhya 4.18
mahaprasada-ksira-lobhe rahila prabhu tatha
purve isvara-puri tanre kahiyachena katha

The Lord remained there because He was very eager to receive the remnants of sweet rice offered to the Gopinatha Deity, having heard a narration from His spiritual master, Isvara Puri, of what had once happened there.

CC Madhya 4.19
‘ksira-cora gopinatha’ prasiddha tanra nama
bhakta-gane kahe prabhu sei ta’ akhyana

That Deity was known widely as Ksira-cora-gopinatha, and Caitanya Mahaprabhu told His devotees the story of how the Deity became so famous.

CC Madhya 4.20
purve madhava-purira lagi’ ksira kaila curi
ataeva nama haila ‘ksira-cora hari’

Formerly the Deity had stolen a pot of sweet rice for Madhavendra Puri; therefore He became very famous as the Lord who stole the sweet rice.
