Text 10 (Rudradvipa and Modadrumadvipa)

 

rudradvipe cara carana drik pasya modadruma-shrir

     jihve gaura-sthala-guna-ganan kirtaya srotra-grihyan

gauratavya bhaja parimalam ghrana gatra tvam asmin

     gauraranye lutha pulakitam gaura-keli-sthalishu

 

pada cara rudradvipa bhumi manolobha,

ankhi mora sada hera modadruma-sobha

suniyachi navadvipa-gunagana yata,

jihva, tumi sei saba gao avirata;

gauratavi-parimala bhaja mora ghrana,

tribhuvane nahi navadvipa hena sthana

sei dhama gaurakeli sthale deha mora,

pulakita luti bhaja shri gaura kisora

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“O feet, please be greedy to always walk in Rudradvipa. O eyes, please gaze always at Modadrumadvipa's beauty. O tongue, please chant constantly  the glories of the transcendental qualities of the places of Lord Gaura's pastimes in Navadvipa, which the ears have heard from great devotees. O nose, please worship the sweet fragrance of Lord Gaura's forest by constantly smelling it. O limbs of my body, your hairs erect in ecstatic joy, please roll on the ground in the places of Lord Gaura’s transcendental pastimes and worship Him in this way. There is no place equal to Navadvipa in all the three worlds.
