CC Antya 7.30


śuddha-bhāve sakhā kare skandhe ārohaṇa
śuddha-bhāve vrajeśvarī karena bandhana


śuddha-bhāve — in pure Kṛṣṇa consciousness; sakhā — friend; kare — does; skandhe — on the shoulder; ārohaṇa — rising; śuddha-bhāve — in pure Kṛṣṇa consciousness; vraja-īśvarī — the Queen of Vraja; karena bandhana — binds.


“In pure Kṛṣṇa consciousness, a friend mounts the shoulder of Kṛṣṇa, and mother Yaśodā binds the Lord.


Śuddha-bhāva, pure Kṛṣṇa consciousness, is not dependent on an understanding of the Lord’s opulences. Even without such opulences, the devotee in śuddha-bhāva is inclined to love Kṛṣṇa as a friend or son.
