(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 20 September 2017, Flacq, Mauritius, Lecture)
The Panca Tattva descended to this world. They broke the lock of the storehouse of love of God and they were relishing the love of Godhead. As they were drinking the nectar of Krsna Prema, their thirst was increasing. This is the nature of chanting the Holy Name. One should drink from the cup of the ears for transcendental pleasure and attain laya, nearly fainting in love of God. Lord Caitanya used to jump very high in kirtan and spin wildly. Sometimes he would chant the same line of a kirtan for nine hours; he would be so absorbed. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu would always chant in great ecstasy.
