Mahaprabhu is giving order to Nityananda and Haridas, saying like this way,

suna suna nityananda, suna haridasa
sarvatra amara ajna karaha prakasa
prati ghare ghare giya kara ei bhiksa
bala 'ksa,' bhaja ksa, kara krsna-siksa

"Listen, listen, Nityananda! Listen, Haridasa! Make My command known everywhere! Go from house to house and beg from all the residents, 'Please chant Krishna's name, worship Krishna, and teach others to follow Krishna's instructions.'"

(Chaitanya-bhagavat, Madhya-khanda, 13:8-10)

Mahaprabhu ordered Nitai and Haridas, "Nitai! Haridas! Please listen to me! I am giving you an order—go house to house, tell them about Krishna, tell them to chant, "Krishna!", to follow Krishna's teachings!"

Nityananda then told Haridas, "Haridas, you know, in that area there are two drunkards, Jagai and Madhai. We must go there first and tell them to chant Hare Krishna, then everybody will think, 'Oh, Jagai and Madhai are chanting!" and they will get some encouragement." Haridas Thakur agreed, "OK, You go first, I am coming behind You." When they came to that area, the people called out, "Hey, where are you going? There are very dangerous people there! Do not go there, they will kill you!" Haridas Thakur said, "Nitai, have You heard what they are saying?" but Nityananda Prabhu answered, "Do not be afraid, come with Me!"

When they first came there, they saw Jagai and Madhai, both drunk, and said, "Say, 'Hare Krishna!'" Both got so angry and threatened to Nityananda and Haridas. Haridas Thakur was behind and he ran away. Later, Nityananda Prabhu said to him, "Why did you run away? We must go there tomorrow then." The next day, they again went there and said to Jagai and Madhai, "Please chant 'Hare Krishna'!" Jagai and Madhai began to swear and were going to beat Nityananda Prabhu, but Nityananda Prabhu was not afraid. In the end, Madhai hit Nityananda Prabhu—he threw some clay pot at Him. When Haridas Thakur saw blood, he ran away, but Nityananda kept saying, "You are beating Me, it is not a problem, but please chant, 'Hare Krishna!'"

(That is why I sing, "Mar kheyeo nam prema yache": they beat Nityananda Prabhu so much, blood is coming, but Nityananda Prabhu does not say anything, He only keeps asking, "Please chant! Please say, 'Hare Krishna!'." He keeps offering the Holy Name, "Please take! Please take it!")

When Haridas Thakur saw Madhai beating Nityananda Prabhu, he came to Mahaprabhu to complain. He said, "Prabhu, You have ordered Nityananda Prabhu to go everywhere and distribute the Holy Name. Do You know what has happened? Madhai has beaten Nityananda Prabhu! I saw so much blood coming, and I ran away from there." Hearing this, Mahaprabhu became angry. He called Sudarsan, and Sudarsan came immediately, saying, "Prabhu, You promised that in this Kali-yuga You will not call me—You will give love and affection..." Mahaprabhu did not listen, He quickly went to Nityananda Prabhu. When Madhai saw Sudarsan, he became afraid, but Nityananda Prabhu said, "What has happened, Prabhu? If I do not rescue Madhai—if You kill him—then whom shall I rescue? This is not what You have promised!"

Then Mahaprabhu got shy and understood it.

Stri-Sanga and Jiva-Himsa
Two of the four regulative principles: 'You must avoid stri-sanga and purush-sanga, and from today, do not eat and do not cook any fish, meat, poultry, eggs, onion, garlic, or masoor dal. Take prasad.'

 

Krsna haite chatur-mukha
'By Krsna's association, Brahma became devoted to Krsna's service. By Brahma's association, Narad Muni became devoted. After Narad came Krsna Dvaipayan Vedavyas. Purnaprajna Madhva Acharya declared he was Vyasa's servant. He was Padmanabha Tirtha's Guru.'
কৃষ্ণ হৈতে চতুর্ম্মুখ

What is there to be afraid of? Those who have surrendered themselves to
the lotus feet of Guru, they are not afraid of death. We are soldiers of Gurudev,
and soldiers are not afraid of death.
