saiveyam bhuvi dhanya-gauda-nagari gangapi tan-madhyaga

†††† jivas te ca vasanti ye ca kritino gauranga-padashritah

no kutrapi nirikshyate hari hari premotsavas tadriso

†††† ha chaitanya kripa-nidhana tava kim vikshye punar vaibhavam

 

shri-gauda nagari dhanya, dhanya ganga tatha,

dhanya se nagara-vasi gaura-padashrita

navadvipa vina nahi hena premotsava,

ha gauranga dekhiba kabe kata se vaibhava

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

ďAll glories, all glories to Shri Gauda-nagari Navadvipa and the Ganges flowing there! All glories to the residents of Navadvipa who have become the most saintly devotees by taking shelter of Lord Gauranga's lotus feet! Alas, alas! I am not able to see the great festival of pure love for Lord Hari which is constantly being celebrated by Lord Gaura and His associates in Navadvipa! O Lord Chaitanya, O ocean of causeless mercy, kindly bless me with transcendental vision so that I can behold Your glorious pastimes in Navadvipa.
