candala-sva-kharadi-vad yadi janah kurvanti sarve tiras-

     karam durvishaham ca tena na hi me kheda-staniyan api

shri-krishna-sravanadika tu navadha raganuga catmada

     bhaktir yad graha-sankhyake vijayate tatraiva khande sthitih

 

candala kukkura khara sama tiraskara,

karuk tahate kheda nahika amara

sneha-jnane tushta haye nava-khanda vane,

vasiba sarvada ami vairagyera sane

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“If people speak unbearable insults to me and reject me, treating me like a candala (dogeater), a dog, or an ass, even then I will not feel the slightest distress; because I am attached to staying in the nine islands of Navadvipa, where the nine proccesses of spontaneous loving devotional service, beginning with hearing about Lord Krishna and culminating in total surrender unto Him, shine with great glory.
