Verse 87: Give up the dreary yogic paths...

kim tavad bata durgameshu viphalam yogadi-margeshv aho
bhaktim krishna-padambuje vidadhatah sarvartham alunthata
asha prema-mahotsave yadi shiva-brahmady-alabhye’dbhute
gaure dhamani durvigaha-mahimodare tada rajyatam (87)

Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:

Verse 87: "What benefit will you achieve from practicing the arduous and dreary yogic paths? Give them up because they are all useless! Instead I beg you to please try to plunder the treasure-house of pure devotional service constantly emanating from the Lotus Feet and Holy Names of Lord Gauranga-Krishna. This is the culmination of all achievements in life. If you really aspire to attain the supremely wonderful festival of this pure love for Lord Krishna, which even Shiva, Brahma and all the demigods cannot attain, then please become lovingly and fanatically devoted to the most fathomless and magnanimous Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu and His Holy Name."
