|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 20: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu Instructs Sanātana Gosvāmī in the Science of the Absolute Truth|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 20.92
tina mudrāra bhoṭa gāya, mādhukarī grāsa
dharma-hāni haya, loka kare upahāsa"
tina mudrāra bhoṭa — a woolen blanket costing three gold coins; gāya — on the body; mādhukarī grāsa — and practicing the mādhukarī system; dharma-hāni haya — that is a religious discrepancy; loka kare upahāsa — people will joke.
"It is contradictory to practice mādhukarī and at the same time wear a valuable blanket. One loses his spiritual strength by doing this, and one will also become an object of jokes."
