Jayapatākā Swami: He knows that Kṛṣṇa will never let him die, and Kṛṣṇa had promised He will maintain His pure devotees and He will give them what they need. He knew that that will never happen. Lord Caitanya was so happy with Śrīvāsa, He gave him various blessings, but anyway, we cannot imitate Śrīvāsa. Lord Caitanya He understood normally a gṛhastha has to work to maintain his family, but Śrīvāsa, he was something special. He had so much faith in Kṛṣṇa that he expressed that in this way. Lord Caitanya blessed him that he will never get old, never suffer want.
