Verse 80: I fervently beseech you...

are mudha gudham vicinuta harer bhakti-padavim
daviyasya drishtyapy aparicita-purvam munivaraih
na vishrambhash citte yadi yadi ca daurlabhyam iva tat
parityajyashesham vrajata sharanam gaura-caranam (80)

Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:

Verse 80: "Oh most foolish and ignorant people, I fervently beseech you to please seek out and attain the platform of the most pure and confidential Hari Bhakti (pure devotion) bestowed by Lord Gauranga specifically through the chanting of His most merciful Holy Names. This platform has remained inaccessible and unknown to even the most exalted ancient sages even after their long search for millions of lives because of the most confidential nature of the Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name, which is the secret of all secrets. If you think it is too difficult to attain this pure love and you do not have the required patience in your heart to endure the difficulties in the performance of the spiritual practices, then please for God's sake abandon all other misconceptions and simply rush towards the exclusive shelter of the Lotus Feet of Lord Gauranga by chanting His Holy Name."
