are mudha gudham vicinuta harer bhakti-padavim

     daviyasya drishtyapy aparicita-purvam muni-ganaih

na visrambhas citte yadi yadi ca daurlabhyam iva tat

     parityajyasesham vrajata saranam gaura-nagaram

 

ohe mudha jana, sukshma drishtira vidhane,

muni-ganaprapya bhakti karaha sandhane

visvasa abhave yadi nahi sanghatana,

saba ceshta chadi laha nadiya-sarana

 

Translation by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

“O foolish people, please seek out the rare platform of pure devotional service to Lord Hari, which is inaccessible to the great sages of ancient times, even after a long search. If in your heart there is no faith, and if you think that this platform is too difficult to attain, then please abandon all these misconceptions and take shelter of Navadvipa (Gaura’s city) by residing there.
