CC Antya 6.302 (1975)
- jala-tulasīra sevāya tāṅra yata sukhodaya
- ṣoḍaśopacāra-pūjāya tata sukha naya
jala-tulasīra sevāya—by worshiping with water and tulasī; tāṅra—his; yata—as much as; sukha-udaya—rise of transcendental happiness; ṣoḍaśa-upacāra-pūjāya—by worshiping with sixteen kinds of paraphernalia; tata—so much; sukha—happiness; naya—is not.
The amount of transcendental bliss that Raghunātha dāsa enjoyed simply by offering water and tulasī is impossible to achieve even if one worships the Deity with sixteen kinds of paraphernalia.
