(Sacimata saw that Lord Caitanya ate her offering although He was far away.)

Jagadānanda Paṇḍita was a very dear devotee of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. The Lord derived great pleasure from his activities.

Knowing His mother to be greatly afflicted by separation, the Lord would send Jagadānanda Paṇḍita to Navadvīpa every year to console her.

"Tell her for Me, 'Please remember that I come here every day and offer My respects to your lotus feet.

"Any day you desire to feed Me, I certainly come and accept what you offer.

"I have given up service to you and have accepted the vow of sannyāsa. I have thus become mad and have destroyed the principles of religion.

"Mother, please do not take this as an offense, for I, your son, am completely dependent upon you."

"I am staying here at Nīlācala, Jagannātha Purī, according to your order. As long as I live, I shall not leave this place."

Following the order of Paramānanda Purī, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu sent His mother the prasāda clothing left by Lord Jagannātha after His pastimes as a cowherd boy.

Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu very carefully brought first-class prasāda from Lord Jagannātha and sent it in separate packages to His mother and the devotees at Nadia.

Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu is the topmost gem of all devotees of mothers. He rendered service to His mother even after He had accepted the vow of sannyāsa.

(Caitanya-caritāmṛta Antya 19.4-14)
