|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 24: The Sixty-One Explanations of the Ātmārāma Verse|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 24.92
bhakti vinu kona sādhana dite nāre phala
saba phala deya bhakti svatantra prabala
bhakti vinu — without devotional service; kona — some; sādhana — practice for perfection; dite — to give; nāre — not able; phala — any result; saba phala — all the results of different processes; deya — give; bhakti — devotional service; sva-tantra — independent; prabala — and powerful.
"The other processes cannot yield results unless they are associated with devotional service. Devotional service, however, is so strong and independent that it can give one all the desired results.
