nivedya gam catithaye
samvahya srantam adrtah
annam bahu-gunam medhyam
The almighty Lord Balarama presented Akrura with the gift of a cow, massaged his feet to relieve him of fatigue and then with great respect and faith fed him suitably prepared food of various fine tastes.
According to Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti, Akrura went to Krsna’s and Balarama’s house on the twelfth lunar day, on which one should not break a fast at night. However, Akrura dispensed with this formality because he was eager to receive food in the Lord’s house.
