navadvipe ramye varam iha kare kharpara-bhrito

     bhramamo bhaikshyartham svapaca-griha-vithishu dinasah

tathapi pracinaih parama-sukritair atra militam

     na neshyamy 'nyatra kvacid api kathancid vapur idam

 

varam ami navadvipe kharpara dhariya,

svapaca pallite bhrami bhikshara lagiya

tathapi sukritibala durlabha sarira,

nyatra laile iccha nahi kari sthira

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“With a bowl in hand I will go begging day after day, even on the paths to the houses of the dog eaters, in the most beautiful Shri Navadvipa. Even though by the strength of many past pious deeds I may become eligible to obtain a very rare body in any other place, my strong determination is to never leave Navadvipa.
