bhutam sthavara-jangamatmakam aho yatra pravishtam kim apy

     anandaika-ghanakriti-sva-mahasa nityotsavam bhasate

mayandhi-krita-drishtibhis tu kalitam nana-vikalpatmana

     tad gauranga-puram kadadhivasatah syan me tanus cinmayi

 

ye dhame pravishta haye jangama sthavara,

ghanananda mahotsave bhase nirantara

maya yara jada-drishti diyache nayane,

jada-maya dekhe sei navadvipa-vane

ataeva amara prarthana gaurapure,

vasiya chinmaya-sphurti pai e sarire.

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“In Lord Gauranga’s city, Navadvipa, all the moving and stationary living entities have eternally effulgent spiritual forms and are always absorbed in the intensely blissful festival of pure love. Those whose eyes are blinded by maya (illusion) misunderstand the truth about Navadvipa by considering it material, and speculating about it with a host of faulty ideas. Therefore I pray unto Navadvipa to kindly bless me with divine spiritual vision and realization while I am residing here.
