Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrita Adi 8.18
krishna yadi chute bhakte bhukti mukti diya
kabhu prema-bhakti na dena rakhena lukaiya
krishna -- Lord Krishna; yadi -- of course; chute -- goes away; bhakte -- unto the devotee; bhukti -- material enjoyment; mukti -- liberation; diya -- offering; kabhu -- at any time; prema-bhakti -- love of Godhead; na -- does not; dena -- give; rakhena -- keeps; lukaiya -- hiding.
If a devotee wants liberation or material sense gratification from the Lord, Krishna immediately delivers it, but pure devotional service He keeps hidden.
