TEXT 218
santera svabhava--krsne mamata-gandha-hina
'param-brahma'-'paramatma'-jnana pravina
SYNONYMS
santera sva-bhava—the characteristic of santa-rasa; krsne—in Krsna; mamata-gandha-hina—not even the smallest quantity of intimacy; param-brahma—impersonal Brahman; paramatma—the localized situation of the Lord; jnana—knowledge; pravina—prominence.
TRANSLATION
"It is the nature of santa-rasa that not even the smallest intimacy exists. Rather, knowledge of impersonal Brahman and localized Paramatma is prominent.
PURPORT
Because of an impersonal impression of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, a devotee in the santa-rasa relationship worships the impersonal Brahman or localized aspect of the Absolute Truth (Paramatma). He does not develop a personal relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krsna.
