‘bhakti’ vinā kṛṣṇe kabhu nahe ‘premodaya’
prema vinā kṛṣṇa-prāpti anya haite naya


bhakti vinā — without devotional service; kṛṣṇe — unto Kṛṣṇa; kabhu — at any time; nahe — is not; prema-udaya — development of dormant love for Kṛṣṇa; prema vinā — without love of Kṛṣṇa; kṛṣṇa-prāpti — attaining Kṛṣṇa; anya — anything else; haite — from; naya — is not possible.


“Unless one discharges devotional service, one cannot awaken one’s dormant love for Kṛṣṇa, and there is no means for attaining Him other than awakening that dormant love.
