Text 78

 

aradhitam nava-vanam vraja-kananam te

     naradhitam nava-vanam vraja eva dure

aradhito dvija-suto vraja-nagaras te

     naradhito dvija-suto na taveha krishnah

 

sevilei navadvipa vrindavana sphure,

navadvipa seva vina vrindavana dure

ye sevila gaura paya yasoda-nandana,

gaura-seva vina krishne na paya kakhana

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“If one worships the nine forests of Navadvipa, he then finds himself in the forest of Vrindavana. But he who does not worship Navadvipa remains far away from the forest of Vriaja. Similarly, if one worships Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, he achieves the association of the hero of Vraja, Lord Krishna. But he who does not worship Lord Gauranga will never attain Lord Krishna.
