|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 8: The Author Receives the Orders of Kṛṣṇa and Guru|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 8.18
kṛṣṇa yadi chuṭe bhakte bhukti mukti diyā
kabhu prema-bhakti nā dena rākhena lukāiyā
kṛṣṇa — Lord Kṛṣṇa; yadi — of course; chuṭe — goes away; bhakte — unto the devotee; bhukti — material enjoyment; mukti — liberation; diyā — offering; kabhu — at any time; prema-bhakti — love of Godhead; nā — does not; dena — give; rākhena — keeps; lukāiyā — hiding.
If a devotee wants liberation or material sense gratification from the Lord, Kṛṣṇa immediately delivers it, but pure devotional service He keeps hidden.
