Verse 23: The essence of all nectar will taste bitter...

aparavaram ced amritamaya-pathodhim adhikam
vimathya praptam syat kim api paramam saram atulam
tathapi shri-gaurakriti-madana-gopala-carana-
cchata-sprishtanam tad vahati vikatam eva katutam (23)

Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:

Verse 23: "By intensely churning the infinite, limitless and shoreless ocean of the supremely pure nectar, one may attain the supremely sweet essence of all nectar, but even this topmost nectar, which has been achieved by the above incomparable endeavor, will taste bitter and unpalatable and appear trivial to those most fortunate souls who constantly relish the topmost divine nectar of the Lotus Feet and Holy Name of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu, Who is none other than the confidential golden Lord Madana Gopala Himself."
