CC Madhya 17.173
- kṛṣṇa-premā tāṅhā, yāṅhā tāṅhāra ‘sambandha’
- tāhāṅ vinā ei premāra kāhāṅ nāhi gandha
kṛṣṇa-premā—love of Kṛṣṇa; tāṅhā—there; yāṅhā—where; tāṅhāra—his; sambandha—relationship; tāhāṅ vinā—without him; ei premāra—of this ecstatic love; kāhāṅ nāhi gandha—there is no possibility of even a scent.
“This kind of ecstatic love can be experienced only when one has a relationship with Mādhavendra Purī. Without him, even a scent of such transcendental ecstatic love is impossible.”
