Verse 140: Where is that exuberant festival gone?
saiveyam bhuvi dhanya-gauda-nagari velapi saivambudheh
so’yam shri-purushottamo madhupates tany eva namani ca
no kutrapi nirikshyate hari hari premotsavas tadrisho
ha chaitanya kripa-nidhana tava kim vikshe punar vaibhavam (140)
Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:
Verse 140: "The most glorious abode of Shri Navadvipa Dhaam certainly remains on this earth. The divine seashore at Shri Jagannatha Puri Dhaam also remains. The glorious abode of Lord Madhupati Shri Jagannatha Puri Dhaam also remains on this planet. The Holy Names of the Lord are also still there. But alas! alas! alas! I do not find or behold anywhere the same kind of exhuberant festival of pure love of God as exhibited by Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu during His manifest pastimes. O Lord Gauranga, O ocean of compassion and mercy, when will I become fortunate to again directly behold Your transcendental glories? I can attain this supreme good fortune of seeing You again only by taking constant shelter of chanting the Holy Names, Pastimes, Associates and Abodes."
