jati-prana-dhanani yantu su-yaso-rasih parikshiyatam

     sad-dharma vilayam prayantu satatam sarvais ca nirbhartsyatam

adhi-vyadhi-satena jiryatu vapur lupta-pratikaratah

     shri-gauranga-puram tathapi na manak tyaktum mamastam matih

 

jati, prana, dhana, yasa, sad-dharma amara,

kshaya hau, sakale karun tiraskara

vyadhi-jirna kalevara pauka durgati,

navadvipa tathapi tyajite nahu mati

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“My noble birth, wealth, and even my very life breath may all perish; my good reputation may wither and die; my religious principles may be destroyed; I may be mistreated and rebuked constantly by everyone; or my body may deteriorate and wither away with hundreds of incurable physical and mental diseases. Even if all that should happen simultaneously, my mind will never even think of leaving Lord Gauranga’s city Navadvipa. Residing here is the ultimate remedy for all my problems.
