Verse 50: Only hope for not seeing Lord Gauranga...
so’py ashcarya-mayah prabhur nayanayor yan nabhavad gocaro
yan nasvadi hareh padambuja-rasas tad yad gatam tad gatam
etavan mama tavad astu jagatim ye’nye py alankurvate
shri-chaitanya-pade nikhata-manasas tair yat prasangotsavah (50)
Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:
Verse 50: "The supremely astonishing Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu has never appeared before my sinful eyes and because of that I have never been able to taste even a drop of the nectarean mellows emanating from His Lotus Feet and Holy Name. In such a miserable situation I have only one hope. I simply pray that by some stroke of good fortune I can somehow attain the jubilant festival of the direct association of those exalted souls whose holy presence is now adorning this planet and whose hearts and minds have deeply entered into the stem of the Lotus Feet of Lord Shri Gauranga Mahaprabhu through the chanting of His Holy Names and Pastimes."
