mamapi syad etadrisam api dinam kim nu paramam

     navadvipe yasmin katham api krita-sparsanam api

aho deham durad api samavalokyapi janusha

     muhur dhanyam manye dharani-patitam syam krita-natih

 

hena dina ke mora udibe gagane,

yabe navadvipa-sprishta sarira darsane

dura haite jivana sarthaka jnana kari,

sashtange padiba nami dharani upari

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“When will that most fortunate day come when I will take birth able to gaze at Navadvipa, touch it, and repeatedly fall down on the ground to offer respects to it, even from a distance? I will also consider myself most fortunate if able to gaze at someone whose body has been touched by Navadvipa.
