|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 22: The Process of Devotional Service|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 22.49
sādhu-sańge kṛṣṇa-bhaktye śraddhā yadi haya
bhakti-phala 'prema' haya, saḿsāra yāya kṣaya
sādhu-sańge — by the association of devotees; kṛṣṇa-bhaktye — in discharging devotional service to Kṛṣṇa; śraddhā — faith; yadi — if; haya — there is; bhakti-phala — the result of devotional service to Kṛṣṇa; prema — love of Godhead; haya — awakens; saḿsāra — the conditioned life in material existence; yāya kṣaya — becomes vanquished.
"By associating with a devotee, one awakens his faith in devotional service to Kṛṣṇa. Because of devotional service, one's dormant love for Kṛṣṇa awakens, and thus one's material, conditioned existence comes to an end.
