Verse 86: Please spit on the bliss of the heavenly planets...

alam shastrabhyasair alam ahaha tirthatanikaya
sada yoshid-vyaghryas trasata vitatham thutkuru divam
trinam-manya dhanyah shrayata kila sannyasi-kapatam
natantam gaurangam nija-rasa-madad ambudhi-tate (86)

Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:

Verse 86: "What is the use of scrutinizingly studying many scriptures? What is the use of painstakingly roaming on pilgrimage to millions of holy places? Please constantly fear the ferocious tigress of sense gratification. Please distastefully spit on the opulences of the heavenly planets. Please always understand that material acquisitions are as worthless as a handful of straw and abandon the attempt to vainly chase after them. Please become supremely fortunate by taking whole-hearted shelter of the chanting of the glories of the Holy Names and Pastimes of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu. Lord Gauranga is dressed in the spotless garments of a sannyasi and He dances ecstatically in Shri Jagannatha Puri Dhaam by the sea shore, intoxicated by tasting the nectar of His own Holy Names."
