Verse 3: No Yoga, Samadhi, Karma or Gyana...

yan naptam karma nishthair na ca samadhi gatam yat tapo dhyana yogair
vairagyais tyaga tattva stutibhir api na yat tarkitam capi kaishcit
govinda prema bhajam api na ca kalitam yad rahasyam svayam tan
namnaiva pradurasid avatarati pare yatra tam naumi gauram (3)

Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:

Verse 3: "The most confidential pure devotional service to Shri Shri Nityananda Gauranga and Shri Shri Radha Krishna is not attainable even by the staunch faithful performers of pious deeds (karma yogis), nor by those who attain the ultimate stage of trance (samadhi) by the practice of austerities, yoga and meditation, nor by those who are completely absorbed in renunciation, knowledge, worship and detachment from the fruits of work, nor by those who are engaged in philosophical speculation or the recitation of prayers, nor can it be fully understood even by the topmost pure devotees of Lord Govinda who are full of pure love for Him. This supreme secret is exclusively revealed to only those who take the full shelter of the Holy Name, Pastimes and Abodes of Lord Shri Gauranga Mahaprabhu, Who has advented to purify this most fortunate age of Kali Yuga."
