Verse 65: Better to stay in a burning cage...
vaso me varam astu ghora-dahana-jvalavali-panjare
shri-chaitanya-padaravinda-vimukhair ma kutracit sangamah
vaikunthadi-padam svayam ca militam no me mano lipsate
padambhoja-rasa-cchata yadi manak gaurasya no rasyate (65)
Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:
Verse 65: "I would prefer to willingly reside in the most ghastly and dreadful burning cage full of fire than to associate in any way with those ill-fated people who are even slightly neglectful of or even a little averse to the Lotus Feet and Holy Name of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu. My heart has absolutely no desire to even achieve eternal residence in Vaikuntha if for a single moment I cannot relish the delectable flavor and enjoy the soothing shade of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu Lotus Feet and His Holy Name."
