kuru sakalam adharmam munca sarvam svadharmam

     tyaja gurum api gaudaranya-vasanurodhat

sa tava parama-dharmah sa ca bhaktir gurunam 

     sa kila kalusha-rasir yad dhi vasantarayah

 

navadvipa-vasa lagi karaya adharma,

tyaje guru-jana ara sakala-svadharma

tahe tara doshi kiba ei matra sara,

yahe gauda-vasa badha sei papa-bhara

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“One should be ready to do even that which is against religious principles, to reject all religious duties, or to abandon even one’s own guru (if he stops  or discourages one from going or residing in Navadvipa), in order to fulfil one’s intense desire for residing in Gaudaranya (Navadvipa). That is actually one's supreme religious duty and topmost devotion to one’s guru. Whatever stops one from residing in Gaudaranya is the result of one’s accumulated sinful reactions.
