Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 20.67-68
yei yei śloka jayadeva, bhāgavate
rāyera nāṭake, yei āra karṇāmṛte
sei sei bhāve śloka kariyā paṭhane
sei sei bhāvāveśe karena āsvādane
yei yei — whatever; śloka — verses; jayadeva — Jayadeva Gosvāmī; bhāgavate — in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam; rāyera nāṭake — in the drama composed by Rāmānanda Rāya; yei — whatever; āra — also; karṇāmṛte — in the book named Kṛṣṇa-karṇāmṛta, written by Bilvamańgala Ṭhākura; sei sei bhāve — in those ecstatic emotions; śloka — verses; kariyā paṭhane — reading regularly; sei sei — in that particular; bhāva-āveśe — ecstatic love; karena āsvādane — He tastes.
When Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu read the verses of Jayadeva's Gīta-govinda, of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, of Rāmānanda Rāya's drama Jagannātha-vallabha-nāṭaka, and of Bilvamańgala Ṭhākura's Kṛṣṇa-karṇāmṛta, He was overwhelmed by the various ecstatic emotions of those verses. Thus He tasted their purports.
