Verse 85: Never try to become God...
vrithavesham karmasv apanayata vartam api manak
na karnabhyarne’pi kvacana nayatadhyatma-saraneh
na moham dehadau bhajata paramashcarya-madhurah
pumarthanam maulir milati bhavatam gaura-kripaya (85)
Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:
Verse 85: "Please throw far away all useless material duties and activities and never ever indulge your mind in the dull gossip of this world. I beg you to kindly never allow even a single word of the monistic, impersonalistic and Advaitic theories of becoming one with God to ever enter your ears. Kindly reject all the illusions about your material body, family and about all the temporary paraphernalia in relation to them. Please take exclusive shelter of the causeless mercy emanating and flowing from Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name and thus attain pure love for the Divine Couple Shri Shri Radha and Krishna, which is the supreme crest-jewel of all human endeavors."
