In childhood there are many incidents. Another incident... That is a very important incident. When He was very small, crawling, so one brāhmaṇa came as their guest. And the brāhmaṇa, after preparing food, when he would offer to Kṛṣṇa, this boy, a child, crawling and take the prasāda and eat.


Lord Caitanya Play Told to Tamala Krsna -- August 4, 1969, Los Angeles:

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: Are there any other . . . any other nice incidences between this time and when Lord Caitanya got married?

Prabhupāda: In childhood there are many incidents. Another incident . . . that is a very important incident. When He was very small, crawling, so one Brāhmiṇ came as their guest. And the Brāhmiṇ, after preparing food, when he would offer to Kṛṣṇa, this boy, a child, crawling, and take the prasāda and eat.

And the Brāhmin will cry, "Oh, everything is spoiled. This boy . . . child has touched." Then His father would request him, "I should take care of Him. Please cook again and offer to Kṛṣṇa." He said: "It is too late now. I'll eat some fruits." "No. Please cook." So twice He spoiled in that way.

Then it became night, so all the ladies, they went to sleep with the child and locked the door of the room. And at night at about eleven o'clock the Brāhmiṇ, when he was offering to Kṛṣṇa, and the child came and took the prasādam. The Brāhmiṇ again began to cry, "Oh, here again the child has come. How you are taking care?" And nobody heard him, because everyone was sleeping.

(aside) One letter is left here?

Govinda dāsī: Ah, yes. I got that. I got that one out. It was from Bombay.

Prabhupāda: Yes. Keep that. So then He appeared as . . . no. As boy He talked with him that "You are asking Me to come and take, and I am taking, and you are . . . why you are howling like that? What can I do? You are asking Me." Then He showed him that He is Kṛṣṇa Himself and warned him that "Don't disclose this fact. You are My devotee, therefore I disclose. So you were asking Me, so I came." Then the Brāhmiṇ was so satisfied that "Kṛṣṇa is here," and he did not disclose.
