svayam patita-patrakany amritavat kshudha bhakshayan

     trisha tridivavandini suci-payo-'njalibhih piban

kada madhura-radhikaramana-rasa-keli-sthali

     vilokya rasa-magna-dhir adhivasani gauratavim

 

kabe va patita patre kshudha nivariya,

ganga jale trishna nasi anjali bhariya

krishna-rasa-sthali dekhi rasa-magnantare,

basiba shri-navadvipa-kanana bhitare

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“When will I reside in Lord Gaura's forest of Navadvipa, eating naturally fallen leaves as if they were ambrosia to satisfy my hunger, and drinking handfuls of the Ganges’ pure water to quench my thirst, my heart plunged in sweet nectarean mellows as I gaze at the place where sweet Lord Radhika-Ramana enjoyed the pastime of the rasa dance?
