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

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 8.94

yadyapi kṛṣṇa-saundaryamādhuryera dhurya

vraja-devīra sańge tāńra bāḍaye mādhurya

SYNONYMS

yadyapi — although; kṛṣṇa-saundarya — the beauty of Lord Kṛṣṇa; mādhuryera — of sweetness; dhurya — the supermost; vraja-devīra — the gopīs; sańgein company with; tāńra — His; bāḍaye — increases; mādhurya — the sweetness.

TRANSLATION

"Although Kṛṣṇa's unparalleled beauty is the topmost sweetness of love of Godhead, His sweetness increases unlimitedly when He is in the company of the gopīs. Consequently Kṛṣṇa's exchange of love with the gopīs is the topmost perfection of love of Godhead.

PURPORT

Kṛṣṇa and His devotees become perfectly intimate in conjugal love of Godhead. In other mellows, the Lord and the devotees do not enjoy transcendental bliss as perfectly. The next verse (Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 10.33.6) will illustrate this point.
