Text 14 (Simantadvipa)

 

radha-vallabha-pada-pallava-jusham sad-dharma-nitayusham

     nityam sevita-vaishnavanghri-rajasam vairagya-sima-sprisam

hantaikanta-rasa-pravishta-manasam apy asti yad duratas

     tad radha-karunavalokam acirad vindantu simantake

 

radha-krishna seva kari,  suddha dharma sadacari,

sevi sadhu padarajah bhai

labhiya vairagya para, paiyao rasa sara, 

se radha karuna nahi pai

simante kariya vasa, yeba haya gaura-dasa,

se karuna sighra tara haya

sakala sadhana tyaji, ataeva gaura bhaji,

shri simanta kara he asraya

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“Those who are ardently devoted to the lotus feet of Lord Krishna, Shri Radha’s beloved, whose entire lives are spent in constantly following pure religious principles, who continuously serve the dust from the lotus feet of the Vaishnavas, who have achieved the essence of all renunciation, and whose minds and hearts are one-pointedly absorbed in the nectar of transcendental mellows, find very far away Shri Radha’s merciful glance, which is very quickly and easily achieved by serving Lord Gaura at Simantadvipa. Therefore, please give up all spiritual practices and worship Lord Gaura by taking shelter of Shri Simantadvipa.
