CC Madhya 21.116
- tāte sākṣī sei ramā, nārāyaṇera priyatamā,
- pativratā-gaṇera upāsyā
- tiṅho ye mādhurya-lobhe, chāḍi’ saba kāma-bhoge,
- vrata kari’ karilā tapasyā
tāte—in this regard; sākṣī—the evidence; sei ramā—that goddess of fortune; nārāyaṇera priya-tamā—the most dear consort of Nārāyaṇa; pati-vratā-gaṇera—of all chaste women; upāsyā—worshipable; tiṅho—she; ye—that; mādhurya-lobhe—being attracted by the same sweetness; chāḍi’—giving up; saba—all; kāma-bhoge—to enjoy with Kṛṣṇa; vrata kari’—taking a vow; karilā tapasyā—executed austerities.
“The vivid evidence in this regard is that the dearest consort of Nārāyaṇa, the goddess of fortune, who is worshiped by all chaste women, gave up everything in her desire to enjoy Kṛṣṇa, being captivated by His unparalleled sweetness. Thus she took a great vow and underwent severe austerities.
