shuddha-bhakti-svabhavasya prabhavan yat-padashrayat

sadaiva labhate jivastam caitanyam aham bhaje

“I worship Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

By taking shelter of His feet, the jiva forever obtains the potency issuing from the very nature of shuddha-bhakti.”

Shuddha-bhakti manifests along with six symptoms: (1) kleshaghni — it brings immediate relief from all kinds of material distress, (2) shubhada — it brings all auspiciousness, (3) moksha-laghutakrita — liberation becomes insignificant before it, (4) sudurlabha — it is rarely achieved, (5) sandrananda-visheshatma — it grants intense transcendental pleasure and (6) krsnakarshini — it is the only means to attract Sri Krsna.

In the stage of sadhana-bhakti only the first two symptoms appear, in the stage of bhava the first four symptoms appear, and in the stage of prema all six symptoms appear.

These six symptoms will now be systematically discussed.(from Part 3 – "An Analysis of the Natural Attributes of Bhakti")

Natural Brotherhood (Bhaktivinoda Thakura):

BhaktiVinoda Thakura

"Gradually, when the offensive portions of the established religions are destroyed, there will be no more differences in the bhajana performed by the various Sampradayas nor any quarrel between them.

Then as brothers, the people of all castes and countries will spontaneously chant the Holy Names of the Supreme Lord together.

At that time, no one will hate anyone or consider others dogeaters; nor will anyone be overwhelmed by the pride of high birth.

The living entities will not forget the principle of natural brotherhood."
