Some slokas from today’s lecture:

(24:40)
śrī-rādhāyāḥ praṇaya-mahimā kīdṛśo vānayaivā-
svādyo yenādbhuta-madhurimā kīdṛśo vā madīyaḥ
saukhyañ chāsyā mad-anubhavataḥ kīdṛśaṁ veti lobhāt
tad-bhāvāḍhyaḥ samajani śachī-garbha-sindhau harīnduḥ

(Śrī Chaitanya-charitāmṛta: Ādi-līlā, 1.6)

(27:45)
śrī-svarūpa-rāya-saṅga-gambhirāntya-līlanaṁ
dvādaśābda-vahni-garbha-vipralambha-śīlanam
rādhikādhirūḍha-bhāva-kānti-kṛṣṇa-kuñjaraṁ
prema-dhāma-devam eva naumi gaura-sundaram
(Prema-dhāma-deva-stotram, 54)

(31:00)
pīḍābhir nava-kāla-kūṭa-kaṭutā-garvasya nirvāsano
nisyandena mudāṁ sudhā-madhurimāhaṅkāra-saṅkochanaḥ
premā sundari nanda-nandana-paro jāgarti yasyāntare
jñāyante sphuṭam asya vakra-madhurās tenaiva vikrāntayaḥ
(Śrī Chaitanya-charitāmṛta: Madhya-līlā, 2.52)

 

Once you get love for Kṛṣṇa, you cannot live without it for a moment, or you would die. The ecstatic feelings you experience in union with Kṛṣṇa are inconceivable. Kṛṣṇa-prema transcends all other types of ecstatic beauty and tastes. Nothing can surpass it. Whoever has a touch of Kṛṣṇa-prema cannot live without it. If he was to leave it, he could not conceive of the pain of separation. It is stronger than a cobra’s poison. The burning sensation that comes from a cobra’s poison is nothing compared to the feelings of separation from Kṛṣṇa.
(Religion of the Heart)
