Chandalohapi munisrestha haribhaktiparayanah |
Haribhaktivihinashcha dviijohapi shvapachadhamah ||
English Translation: Chandalas with Hari Bhakti are superior to Munis. But if a Dvija is devoid of Hari Bhakti then he is worse than even a Chandala.
I found the above verse mentioned in Hari Lilamrita, the biography of Sri Sri Harichand Thakur, founder of the non-Vedic Matua Vaishnava Sampradaya, written in Bengali:
But it doesn't seem to be originally from that book. A friend of mine believes it's from the Hari Bhakti Vilasa but I haven't been able to find it so far.
So which text originally mentions the above verse?
