|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 20: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu Instructs Sanātana Gosvāmī in the Science of the Absolute Truth|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 20.143
veda-śāstre kahe sambandha, abhidheya, prayojana
kṛṣṇa, kṛṣṇa-bhakti, prema, — tina mahā-dhana
veda-śāstre — in the Vedic literature; kahe — it is said; sambandha — relationship; abhidheya — execution; pra-yojana — goal; kṛṣṇa — Lord Kṛṣṇa; kṛṣṇa-bhakti — devotional service to the Lord; prema — love of Godhead; tina — these three; mahā-dhana — the supreme treasure.
"In the Vedic literatures, Kṛṣṇa is the central point of attraction, and His service is our activity. To attain the platform of love of Kṛṣṇa is life's ultimate goal. Therefore Kṛṣṇa, Kṛṣṇa's service and love of Kṛṣṇa are the three great riches of life.
