Verse 98: Let the yogis remain in their solitary
dhyayanto giri-kandareshu bahavo brahmanubhuyasate
yogabhyasa-parash ca santi bahavah siddha mahi-mandale
vidya-shaurya-dhanadibhish ca bahavo jalpanti mithyoddhatah
ko va gaura-kripam vinadya jagati premonmado nrityatu (98)
Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:
Verse 98: "Many gyanis may remain in the solitary caves of the mountains absorbed in deep meditation on the impersonal brahman, many great yogis may diligently follow the regimen of yoga and attain many astonishing mystic powers to display in this world, and many others, deceitfully and egotistically intoxicated by high learning, heroic strength, wealth, and other false opulences of this world, may speak much nonsense, but no one in this world will be able to attain the ecstasy of pure love of God and dance in bliss, unless they receive the causeless mercy of the most munificent Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu and His Holy Name."
