Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 17.43
nūpura-kińkiṇī-dhvani, haḿsa-sārasa jini',
kańkaṇa-dhvani caṭake lājāya
eka-bāra yei śune, vyāpi rahe' tāra kāṇe,
anya śabda se-kāṇe nā yāya
nūpura — of the ankle bells; kińkiṇī — tinkling; dhvani — the sound; haḿsa — swans; sārasa — cranes; jini' — conquering; kańkaṇa-dhvani — the sound of bangles; caṭake — the caṭaka bird; lājāya — puts to shame; eka-bāra — once; yei — one who; śune — hears; vyāpi — expanding; rahe' — remains; tāra kāṇe — in his ear; anya — other; śabda — sound; se-kāṇe — in that ear; nā yāya — does not go.
"The tinkling of Kṛṣṇa's ankle bells surpasses the songs of even the swan and crane, and the sound of His bangles puts the singing of the caṭaka bird to shame. Having allowed these sounds to enter the ears even once, one cannot tolerate hearing anything else.
