Verse 84: Has the Name of Gauranga not entered your ears?

jnanadi-vartma-virucim vraja-natha-bhakti-
ritim na vedmi na ca sad-guravo milanti
ha hanta hanta mama kah sharanam vimudha-
gauro haris tava na karna-patham gato’sti (84)

Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:

Verse 84: "O bewildered fool, why do you say that you have no power and capacity to understand the path of pure devotional service to Lord Vrajanatha Krishna, which makes one totally averse to the paths of impersonal speculation and non-devotional yoga? O unfortunate one why do you say that you have no contact and association with saintly and bonafide spiritual masters? And why do you repeatedly wail that you do not have anyone to take shelter of in this world? Has the supremely merciful Holy Name and Pastimes of Lord Gauranga never ever entered your ears? This supreme Name and Pastimes of Lord Gauranga are the ultimate goals and resting places for all your endeavors and thus you should immediately take full shelter of chanting and meditating on these undiscriminatingly charitable glories of the Holy Name and Pastimes of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu."
