Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.23.33
śravaṇād darśanād dhyānān
mayi bhāvo 'nukīrtanāt
na tathā sannikarṣeṇa
pratiyāta tato gṛhān
śravaṇāt — by hearing; darśanāt — by seeing the Deity form; dhyānāt — by meditation; mayi — for Me; bhāvaḥ — love; anukīrtanāt — by chanting My names and qualities; na — not; tathā — in the same way; sannikarṣeṇa — by literal proximity; pratiyāta — return; tataḥ — therefore; gṛhān — to your homes.
It is by hearing about Me, seeing My Deity form, meditating upon Me and chanting My names and glories that love for Me develops, not by physical proximity. Therefore please go back to your homes.
