তীর্থফল সাধুসঙ্গ, সাধুসঙ্গে অন্তরঙ্গ,
শ্রীকৃষ্ণভজন মনোহর ।
যথা সাধু, তথা তী থ, থির করি’ নিজ-চিত্ত,
সাধুসঙ্গ কর নিরন্তর ॥
tirtha-phala sadhu-sanga, sadhu-sange antaranga,
yatha sadhu, tatha tirtha, sthira kari’ nija-chitta,

"The result of visiting a place of pilgrimage is sadhu-sanga (pure devotees’
association) and being drawn to the exclusive service of Sri Krishna. A place
of pilgrimage is where a sadhu (pure devotee) is. Always keep the association
of pure devotees and firmly fix your heart by such association."
(Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur, Kalyan Kalpataru)

"[In Krishna-lila,] there was one girl, Kubja. She could not walk straight,
her face did not look good, but that Kubja wanted Krishna to come to her
house and stay with her for one night. Krishna told her that it was not
possible in Dvapara-yuga, but He fulfilled her desire in Kali-yuga: Kashi
Misra is an incarnation of Kubja. When Sriman Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was in His
vipralambha—dvadasabda-bahni-garbha-vipralambha-silanam [for the
last twelve years of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's manifest pastimes He was
deeply absorbed in union and separation], He did that Lila in the house of
Kashi Misra in Puri. So, whatever devotees think of, Krishna is always ready
to fulfil their desire."
