1109) Whether I know there is a nectarean taste in Bhakti! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
———– Prabhupada: Caitanya Mahaprabhu compared bhakti as the, a great ocean. So when He was speaking before Rupa Gosvami, He said that “It is just like an ocean. So I’ll take a drop of it, and you taste it, and you’ll understand what is this ocean.” Just like by tasting one drop of sea water we can understand the taste of the whole ocean, similarly Caitanya Mahaprabhu described a small portion of Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu. Bhakti rasa amrta. Bhakti, devotional service, there is a rasa, taste, and the taste is amrta, eternal. —————————————
