Verse 138: Where have You gone?
jadyam karmasu kutracij japa-tapo-yogadikam kutracid-
govindarcana-vikriyah kvacid api jnanabhimanah kvacit
shri-bhaktih kvacid ujjvalapi ca harer van-matra eva sthita
ha chaitanya kuto gato’si padavi kutrapi te nekshyate (138)
Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:
Verse 138: "Somewhere people are absorbed in deadly materialistic activities, somewhere people chant concocted mantras and practice dry austerities and yoga, somewhere people have become egotistic and puffed-up by the dint of their speculative knowledge, somewhere people are worshiping the Deity of Lord Govinda-Krishna or performing devotional service for material profit, and somewhere the splendid path of pure devotion to the Lord is present in name only. O Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu where have You gone? I do not see anywhere the path of Your pure devotional service attained exclusively by the chanting of Your most merciful Names and Pastimes. Alas, what a great calamity has befallen this world? No one even remembers Your Name what to speak of worshiping You with devotion!"
