|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 4: The Confidential Reasons for the Appearance of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 4.171
ataeva kāma-preme bahuta antara
kāma — andha-tamaḥ, prema — nirmala bhāskara
ataeva — therefore; kāma-preme — in lust and love; bahuta — much; antara — space between; kāma — lust; andha-tamaḥ — blind darkness; prema — love; nirmala — pure; bhāskara — sun.
Therefore lust and love are quite different. Lust is like dense darkness, but love is like the bright sun.
