Verse 97: Why should one beg for a silver piece?
yasyasha krishna-caitanye nripa-dvari kim arthinah
cintamanim-cayam prapya ko mudho rajatam vrajet (97)
Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:
Verse 97: "Why should even a beginner devotee who aspires to attain service of the exalted and most opulent Lord Gauranga (Lord Shri Krishna Chaitanya) and His Holy Names go to beg for wealth at the door of a king or a rich man in this world? If he or she would do so then it would be as foolish and senseless as a person in possession of priceless wish-fulfiling chintamani jewels (i.e. the Holy Names of Lord Gauranga) trying to travel a great distance with much trouble just to procure an insignificant silver trinket (i.e. perishable and temporary material wealth)."
