|Antya-līlā||Chapter 20: The Śikṣāṣṭaka Prayers|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 20.156
kaḥ khalu rasikaḥ samīhate hātum
parimala — with the scent; vāsita — perfumed; bhuvanam — the whole world; sva-rasa-unmādita — inspired by their own mellows; rasa-jña — devotees; rolambam — like bumblebees; giridhara-caraṇa-ambhojam — the lotus feet of Lord Giridhārī; kaḥ — who; khalu — certainly; rasikaḥ — a realized soul; samīhate hātum — endeavors to give up.
Realized devotees are like bumblebees maddened by their own mellows at Kṛṣṇa's lotus feet. The scent of those lotus feet perfumes the entire world. Who is the realized soul that could give them up?
