|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 23: Life's Ultimate Goal — Love of Godhead|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 23.44
ihā yaiche krame nirmala, krame bāḍe svāda
rati-premādira taiche bāḍaye āsvāda
ihā — this; yaiche — like; krame — by succession; nirmala — pure; krame — gradually; bāḍe — increases; svāda — taste; rati — from attachment; prema-ādira — of love of Godhead and so on; taiche — in that way; bāḍaye — increases; āsvāda — taste.
"One should understand that just as the taste of sugar increases as it is gradually purified, so when love of Godhead increases from rati, which is compared to the beginning seed, its taste increases.
