|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 25: How All the Residents of Vārāṇasī Became Vaiṣṇavas|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 25.128
visṛjati hṛdayaḿ na yasya sākṣād
dharir avaśābhihito 'py aghaugha-nāśaḥ
sa bhavati bhāgavata-pradhāna uktaḥ
visṛjati — gives up; hṛdayam — the heart; na — not; yasya — whose; sākṣāt — directly; hariḥ — the Supreme Personality of Godhead; avaśa-abhihitaḥ — who is automatically or inattentively glorified; api — although; agha-ogha-nāśaḥ — who annihilates all kinds of inauspicious offenses for a devotee; praṇaya-rasanayā — with the rope of love; dhṛta-ańghri-padmaḥ — whose lotus feet are bound; saḥ — such a devotee; bhavati — is; bhāgavata-pradhānaḥ — the most elevated devotee; uktaḥ — is said.
"'Hari, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who destroys everything inauspicious for His devotees, does not leave the hearts of His devotees even if they remember Him and chant about Him inattentively. This is because the rope of love always binds the Lord within the devotees' hearts. Such devotees should be accepted as most elevated.
This is a quotation from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (11.2.55).
