samsara-sindhu-tarane hridayam yadi syat

     sankirtanamrita-rase ramate manas cet

premambudhau viharane yadi citta-vrttir

     mayapurakhya-nagare vasatim kurusva

 

tarite samsara-sindhu yadi vancha tava,

sankirtanamritasvade thake iccha lava

vancha yadi thake prema-samudra-vihare,

mayapure kara vasa jahnavira tire

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“If your heart is set on crossing beyond the ocean of repeated birth and death, if it wants to be always absorbed in the sweet nectar of chanting Krishna’s holy names, and if your mind and heart yearn to swim and sport in the ocean of pure love of Krishna, then please make your residence in the city of Mayapura, Navadvipa, without any further delay.
