SLOKA OF THE WEEK:
Śrī Caitanya Caritāmrta Ādi 4.166
kāmera tātparya — nija-sambhoga kevala
krsna-sukha-tātparya-mātra prema ta' prabala
kāmera — of lust; tātparya — the intent; nija — own; sambhoga — enjoyment; kevala — only; krsna-sukha — for Lord Krsna's happiness; tātparya — the intent; mātra — only; prema — love; ta' — certainly; prabala — powerful.
The object of lust is only the enjoyment of one's own senses. But love caters to the enjoyment of Lord Krsna, and thus it is very powerful.
