nindanti yavan nava-khand-vasam

†††† vrindavane prema-vilasa-kande

tavan na govinda-padaravinde

†††† svacchanda-sad-bhakti-rahasya-labhah

 

navadvipa-vasa prati ninda yata dina,

tata dina manusha svacchanda bhakti-hina

tata dina vrindavane premera nilaya,

govinda-padaravinde bhakti nahi haya

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

ďAs much as they speak ill about residing in Navadvipa, to that extent persons will not be able to understand the great secret of pure, spontaneous devotional service for Lord Govinda's lotus feet in Vrindavana, the root from which the Lordís love pastimes sprout.
