|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 8: Talks Between Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Rāmānanda Rāya|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 8.259
abhāgiyā jñānī āsvādaye śuṣka jñāna
kṛṣṇa-premāmṛta pāna kare bhāgyavān
abhāgiyā — unfortunate; jñānī — the philosophical speculators; āsvādaye — taste; śuṣka — dry; jñāna — empiric knowledge; kṛṣṇa-prema-amṛta — the nectar of love of Kṛṣṇa; pāna — drinking; kare — do; bhāgyavān — the fortunate.
Rāmānanda Rāya concluded, "The unfortunate empiric philosophers taste the dry process of philosophical knowledge, whereas the devotees regularly drink the nectar of love of Kṛṣṇa. Therefore they are the most fortunate of all."
