Some slokas from today’s lecture:

aṣṭāviṁśa chatur-yuge dvāparera śeṣe
vrajera sahite haya kṛṣṇera prakāśe
(Śrī Chaitanya-charitāmṛta: Ādi-līlā, 3.10)

śrī-rādhāyāḥ praṇaya-mahimā kīdṛśo vānayaivā-
svādyo yenādbhuta-madhurimā kīdṛśo vā madīyaḥ
saukhyaṁ chāsyā mad-anubhavataḥ kīdṛśaṁ veti lobhāt
tad-bhāvāḍhyaḥ samajani śachī-garbha-sindhau harīnduḥ
(Śrī Chaitanya-charitāmṛta: Ādi-līlā, 1.6)

anarpita-charīṁ chirāt karuṇayāvatīrṇaḥ kalau
samarpayitum unnatojjvala-rasāṁ sva-bhakti-śriyam
hariḥ puraṭa-sundara-dyuti-kadamba-sandīpitaḥ
sadā hṛdaya-kandare sphuratu vaḥ śachī-nandanaḥ

(Śrī Chaitanya-charitāmṛta: Ādi-līlā, 1.4)
