samo man-nisthata buddher

tan-nistha durghata buddher
etam santa-ratim vina

"These are the words of the Supreme Personality of Godhead: 'When one's intelligence is fully attached to My lotus feet but one does not render practical service, one has attained the stage called santa-rati, or sama. Without santa-rati, attachment to Krsna is very difficult to achieve.'
