Verse 47: What a pathetic calamity?
kair va sarva-pumartha-maulir akritayasair ihasadito
nasid gaura-padaravinda-rajasa sprishte mahi-mandale
ha ha dhig mama jivanam dhig api me vidyam dhig apy ashramam
yad daurbhagya-bharad aho mama na tat-sambandho-gandho’pyabhut (47)
Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:
Verse 47: "Now that the pollen and the holy dust of the Lotus Feet and Holy Name of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu has touched this great planet, who, without even aspiring or endeavoring for it, has not attained the pure love of God which is the supreme crest-jewel achievement of all human endeavor! Alas! Alas! Due to the extreme negative power of my misfortune I have not attained even a scent of my relationship with Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu and His Holy Name and Pastimes. Due to this pathetic calamity I say, 'To hell with my worthless life! To hell with my scriptural erudition! And to hell with my high status in society!'"
