ha hanta citta-bhuvi me paramosharayam

     sad-bhakti-kalpa-latikankurita katham syat

hridy ekam eva param asvasaniyam asti

     gauranga-dhama nivasan na kadapi socyah

 

kathina ushara kshetra tomara asaya,

bhakti-kalpata-bija ankura na haya

tabe eka asa mora jagiche hridaye,

navadvipa-vase soka sthana na labhaye

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“Alas, alas! How will the desire creeper of pure devotional service sprout in the completely dry and unproductive desert of my heart? In my heart there is only one solace: if I reside in Lord Gauranga’s holy abode of Navadvipa, then I shall never have to lament again, and all my desires will be fulfilled.
