Verse 43: Not acquainted with Lord Gauranga are doomed...

dhig astu kulam ujjvalam dhig api vagmitam dhig yasho
dhig adhyayanam akritim nava-vayah shriyam castu dhik
dvijatvam api dhik param vimalam ashramadyam ca dhik
na cet paricitah kalau prakata-gaura-gopi-patih (43)

Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:

Verse 43: "Condemned is his noble birth and high lineage! Doomed is his eloquence and artistic abilities! Pathetic is his fame and reputation! Denounced is his learning of the scriptures, his physical beauty and handsome youthfulness and his hard-earned wealth! Condemned is his advanced status as a brahmana and even his dutiful practices of discharging his occupational duties! Hopelessly condemned are all these people who even after taking birth in this rare Kali Yuga do not want to become acquainted with the golden Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Gopipati Gauranga Mahaprabhu and the chanting of His Holy Name and Pastimes."
