Desire for liberation will not become bitter unless

tavad brahma-katha vimukti-padavi tavan na tikti-bhavet

Verse 19: “Discussion of and desire for the advanced stage of impersonal liberation will not become bitter and distasteful, the tight shackles of blind adherence to social, religious and Vedic conventional rules will not become slackened and the tumultuous speculative debates of the Vedic scholars on the merits of various useless spiritual paths will continue unabated unless one achieves the supreme good fortune of the direct audience of an intimate devotee who is like a bumblebee constantly drinking the nectar of the Lotus Feet and Holy Name of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu.”

Verse 142: “The transcendental opulences and glories of the Supreme Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu and His Holy Name supremely astonish Brahma, Shiva and all the demigods. On even partially hearing or reading this sweet offering of the nectarean verses of Shri Chaitanya Chandramrita from this enchanted child (the author) even once, Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu and His Holy Name will certainly become affectionate and causelessly merciful to that person and award him or her with the supremely blissful pure love for Himself.”
