na satyakhye loke sprihayati mano brahma-padavim

     na vaikunthe vishnor api mrigayate parshada-tanum

navadvipe suddhe madhura-rasa-bharotsavavatam

     nivase dhanyanam su-bahu krimi-janmapi manute

 

mana nahi cahe satyaloke brahmapada,

vaikunthe parshada deha-murtira sampada

navadvipe visuddha madhura bhakta jana,

grihe krimi janmi lobha haya anukshana

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“My heart does not yearn to achieve the position of Lord Brahma in Satyaloka (topmost planet in the universe), nor does it seek to attain the body of an eternal associate of Lord Vishnu in Vaikuntha (beyond the material universe), but it is constantly greedy to obtain a birth, even as a tiny insect, in the home of the fortunate souls who continuously enjoy sweet necatarean festivals in the pure realm of Navadvipa.
