|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 25: How All the Residents of Vārāṇasī Became Vaiṣṇavas|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 25.273
kṛṣṇa-bhakti-siddhānta-gaṇa, yāte praphulla padma-vana,
tāra madhu kari' āsvādana
prema-rasa-kumuda-vane, praphullita rātri-dine,
tāte carāo mano-bhṛńga-gaṇa
kṛṣṇa-bhakti-siddhānta-gaṇa — the conclusive understanding of devotional service to Kṛṣṇa; yāte — by which; praphulla — enlivened; padma-vana — the forest of lotus flowers; tāra madhu — the honey collected from those lotus flowers; kari' āsvādana — relishing; prema-rasa — of transcendental love of Kṛṣṇa; kumuda-vane — in the forest of kumuda flowers (a type of lotus); praphullita — being jubilant; rātri-dine — day and night; tāte — in that forest of lotus flowers; carāo — make wander; manaḥ-bhṛńga-gaṇa — the bumblebees of your minds.
Devotional service to Kṛṣṇa is exactly like a pleasing, jubilant forest of lotus flowers wherein there is ample honey. I request everyone to taste this honey. If all the mental speculators bring the bees of their minds into this forest of lotus flowers and jubilantly enjoy ecstatic love of Kṛṣṇa day and night, their mental speculation will be completely transcendentally satisfied.
