CC Madhya 20.141
Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta - Madhya-līlā - Chapter 20: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu Instructs Sanātana Gosvāmī in the Science of the Absolute Truth
- taiche bhakti-phale kṛṣṇe prema upajaya
- preme kṛṣṇāsvāda haile bhava nāśa pāya
taiche—similarly; bhakti-phale—by the result of devotional service; kṛṣṇe—unto Lord Kṛṣṇa; prema—love; upajaya—arises; preme—in devotional love; kṛṣṇa-āsvāda—tasting the association of Lord Kṛṣṇa; haile—when there is; bhava—the distress of the repetition of birth and death; nāśa—annihilation; pāya—obtains.
“Similarly, as a result of bhakti, one’s dormant love for Kṛṣṇa awakens. When one is so situated that he can taste the association of Lord Kṛṣṇa, material existence, the repetition of birth and death, comes to an end.
