Verse 99: Become secure about the safety of family
kashi-vasan api na ganaye kim gayam margayamo
muktih shuktibhavati yadi me kah parartha-prasangah
trasabhasah sphurati na maha-raurave’pi kva bhitih
stri-putradau yadi kripayate deva-devah sa gaurah (99)
Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:
Verse 99: "If the Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu and His Holy Name are causelessly merciful unto me then why should I consider the impersonalists of Varanasi to be very important and why should I go on a pilgrimage to Gaya to offer oblations to my ancestors? If Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name are merciful to me then my personal liberation does not hold as much weight as even a fraction of an ounce to me what to speak of the petty worldly achievements of religiosity, economic development and sense gratification, the three other secondary goals of life. If Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name are merciful upon me, I will not feel a glimpse of distress even if I have to go to the most horrible Maharaurava hell. If Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name are merciful unto me then I will have absolutely no fear and anxiety about the well-being of my wife, children, friends and relatives."
