evaṁ-vrataḥ sva-priya-nāma-kīrtyā

‘When a person is actually advanced and takes pleasure in chanting the holy name of the Lord, who is very dear to him, he is agitated and loudly chants the holy name. He also laughs, cries, becomes agitated and chants just like a madman, not caring for outsiders.’

For an explanation of this verse (Bhāg. 11.2.40) one may consult chapter seven, text 94, of the Ādi-līlā.
