svananda-sac-cid-ghana-rupata-matir

     yavan na gaura-sthala-vasi-jantushu

tavat pravishtho 'pi na tatra vindate

     tato 'paradhat padavim parat param

 

navadvipa-vasi jantuvgane yata dina,

sananda-sac-cid-bhava na haya pravina

tata dina haiya o se dhame pravishta,

dhama-aparadhe-nahi labhe nija ishta

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“Even though residing there himself, he who commits the offense (dhama-aparadha) of thinking that the residents of Gaura-sthala do not have spiritual forms of eternity, bliss, and knowledge, will neither attain the supreme abode nor fulfillment of his desires.
