Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 19.216
na kutaścana bibhyati
nārāyaṇa-parāḥ — persons who are attached to the Supreme Personality of Godhead; sarve — all; na — not; kutaścana — from any quarter; bibhyati — are afraid; svarga — in heavenly planets; apavarga — in liberation; narakeṣu — or in hell; api — although; tulya-artha — results as equal; darśinaḥ — who see.
"'A person who is devoted to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Nārāyaṇa, is not afraid of anything. Elevation to the heavenly kingdom, condemnation to hell and liberation from material bondage all appear the same to a devotee.'
This verse is quoted from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (6.17.28). Elevation to the heavenly planets, liberation from material bondage, and condemnation to hell are all equal to the devotee. The devotee's only desire is to be attached to the lotus feet of Kṛṣṇa and to engage in His transcendental loving service.
