Sent to BVKS Sanga by Gokula Candra Prabhu:-
There is a saying, gopayet matr-jara-vat: "One should keep prema hidden, as one would conceal that one's mother has a paramour." A devotee actually experiencing prema would never divulge his inner ecstasies just to establish a reputation for himself among Vaisnavas.
