|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 23: The Brāhmaṇas' Wives Blessed|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.23.4
tatra gatvaudanaḿ gopā
āryasya mama cābhidhām
tatra — there; gatvā — going; odanam — food; gopāḥ — My dear cowherd boys; yācata — just request; asmat — by Us; visarjitāḥ — dispatched; kīrtayantaḥ — announcing; bhagavataḥ — of the Supreme Lord; āryasya — the elder; mama — My; ca — also; abhidhām — name.
When you go there, My dear cowherd boys, simply request some food. Declare to them the name of My elder brother, the Supreme Lord Balarāma, and also My name, and explain that you have been sent by Us.
Lord Kṛṣṇa encouraged His boyfriends to request charity without being embarrassed. In case the boys felt they had no right to personally approach such respectable brāhmaṇas, the Lord told them to mention the names of Balarāma and Kṛṣṇa, the holy names of God.
