Madhya-līlāChapter 8: Talks Between Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Rāmānanda Rāya

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 8.226

'ańghri-padma-sudhā'ya kahe 'kṛṣṇa-sańgānanda'

vidhi-mārge pāiye vraje kṛṣṇa-candra

SYNONYMS

ańghri-padma-sudhāya — by the nectar derived from the lotus feet of Kṛṣṇa; kaheit says; kṛṣṇa-sańga-ānanda — transcendental bliss by the association of Kṛṣṇa; vidhi-mārge — on the path of regulative principles; pāiye — one does not get; vrajein Goloka Vṛndāvana; kṛṣṇa-candra — Lord Kṛṣṇa.

TRANSLATION

"The word 'ańghri-padma-sudhā' means 'associating intimately with Kṛṣṇa.' One can attain such perfection only by spontaneous love of God. One cannot obtain Kṛṣṇa in Goloka Vṛndāvana simply by serving the Lord according to regulative principles.
