|Antya-līlā||Chapter 5: How Pradyumna Miśra Received Instructions from Rāmānanda Rāya|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 5.132
caitanyera bhakta-gaṇera nitya kara 'sańga'
tabeta jānibā siddhānta-samudra-tarańga
caitanyera — of Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; bhakta-gaṇera — of the devotees; nitya — regularly; kara — do; sańga — association; tabeta — then only; jānibā — you will understand; siddhānta-samudra-tarańga — the waves of the ocean of devotional service.
Svarūpa Dāmodara continued, "Associate regularly with the devotees of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, for then only will you understand the waves of the ocean of devotional service.
It is clearly to be understood in this connection that the followers of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu's way of devotional service are eternal associates of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and perfect knowers of the Absolute Truth. If one immediately follows the principles of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu by associating with His devotees, lusty desires for material enjoyment will vanish from one's heart. Then one will be able to understand the meaning of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam and the purpose of listening to it. Otherwise such understanding is impossible.
