Verse 33: Dog's tail can never be straightened...
pashanah parishecito’mrita-rasair naivankurah sambhavet
langulam saramapater vivrinatah syad asya naivarjavam
hastav unnayata budhah katham aho dharyam vidhor mandalam
sarvam sadhanam astu gaura-karunabhave na bhavotsavah (33)
Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:
Verse 33: "A huge stone, even if watered and nourished by pure nectar for millions of years will never sprout a single blade of grass. Even if a dog's tail is forcibly and carefully extended and stretched for a long period of time it will never become straight. An expert man may stretch and reach out his long arms as much as he likes, but he will never ever grasp the moon or any other planet. Similarly the most advanced transcendentalists even after performing all the various kinds of spiritual practices for millions of lives will never ever attain the supreme festival of pure, unadulterated and unalloyed love of God without achieving the mercy of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu through the chanting of His Holy Name and Pastimes!"
