manera smarana prana madhura madhura nama
vilasa jugala smriti-sara
sadhya sadhana ei ara nai iha bai
ei tattva sarva-tattva-sara

“The Divine Couple’s sweet, sweet holy names in the form of the Hare Krnsa maha-mantra is life for the mind’s memory. Their pastimes are the essence of all kinds of rememberance. Remembering Their pastimes is the both goal and the way to attain perfection. That is the truth of all truths.”

From Prema-bhakti-chandrika by Shrila Narottama Das Thakura, Song 6, text 2
