This verse we read yesterday. We had read this about betel nut.

Sridhar said, listen oh brahmana Thakur! Please forgive me! I AM YOUR DOG! Sridhar said, listen, oh respected brahmana Thakur please forgive me for I am your dog! Ami tumar kukur!

Lord Gaurasundar said, I know you are very clever! You sell bananas! And then the money that you get from that, the wealth you get from that, is so much, that you have accumulated so much wealth.

Are there no other shops, said Sridhar? Go there and purchase Your banana products for a cheaper price! So Lord Gaurasundar, He forcibly took Sridhar’s goods. Instead of taking from me, why don’t You go to other people, you can get at a cheaper price. Actually Sridhar quoted the cheapest price in the market. Lord Caitanya was taking even cheaper, half price!

Lord Gaurahari said, I will not give up My supplier. Sell Me banana stems, bananas, and take My money. So Nimai Pandit, He said, I will take My goods from My regular supplier who I regularly buy from. So the Lord, He said He would take it from Sridhar who was His supplier.

Seeing the Lord’s beautiful form, Sridhar became overwhelmed and he would just smile. Vishwambhar would then speak harsh words. Vishwambhar, very jubilantly, very happily started to criticize Sridhar.

Every day you purchase some things to offer to the Ganges. So what is the harm if you give Me a little discount?

The Ganges which you worship, I am her father! Ha! This is the truth, nothing but the truth! I am telling you! Ha!

So Sridhar covered his ears with his hands and said, Vishnu, Vishnu! Seeing the Lord’s arrogance and mischievous nature, he then gave the Lord the banana leaves and bananas.

In this way, every day, they had a quarrel. And Sridhar’s understanding was that this brahmana is very restless.

Sridhar said, I am defeated by You! I will give You something free. Please forgive me!

I will give you a bunch of bananas and a bunch of banana stems. I will give You some banana roots. Then what fault will I have?
