yat-simanam api sprisen na nigamo durat param lakshyate

     kincid gudhataya yad eva paramanandotsavaikavadhi

yan madhurya-kano 'py avedi na siva-svayambhuvadyair aham

     tac chriman-nava-khanda-dhama-rasadam vindami radha-pateh

 

ye dhamera sima veda sparsite na pare,

paranandotsava gudha rupe yatha sphure

brahma, siva yahara madhurya nahi jane,

kabe va vasiba sei navadvipa sthane

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“When will I attain Lord Radhapati's sweet and opulent abode named Shri Navadvipa? The Vedas cannot touch its boundary, and just hint at it from afar. Navadvipa is the limit of the secret festival of the greatest transcendental bliss. Siva, Brahma, and the other great personalities do not fully understand even a single drop of nectar flowing in Navadvipa.
