|ye chhayaya jagata judaya|
|hena nitai vine bhai||radha-krsna paite nai|
|drdha kari' dhara nitaira paya |
Cooling like ten million moons, Nitai's lotus feet soothe the world with their shade. O brother! Without Nitai, you cannot reach Radha-Krsna. Firmly grasp Nitai's feet.
|se sambandha nahi yara||vrtha janma gela tara|
|sei pasu bada durachara|
|nitai na balila mukhe||majila samsara-sukhe|
|vidya-kule ki karibe tara |
The life of one who had no connection with Nitai passed in vain. Such an animal is very wicked. What will learning (aristocratic birth) do for one who was immersed in worldly pleasures and never called aloud, 'Nitai'?
|ahankare matta haina||nitai-pada pasariya|
|asatyere satya kari' mani|
|nitaiyer karuna habe||vraje radha-krsna pabe|
|dhara nitaiyer charan du'khani |
Maddened with pride, forgetting Nitai's feet, I accept untruth as truth. When Nitai bestows His mercy you will reach Radha-Krsna in Vraja. Grasp Nitai's feet!
|nitaiyer charana satya||tanhara sevaka nitya|
|nitai-pada sada kara asa|
|narottama bada duhkhi||nitai more kara sukhi|
|rakha ranga-charanera pasa |
Nitai's feet are truth, and His servants are eternal. Always aspire for Nitai's feet. Narottam is very sad: "O Nitai! Make me happy. Keep me beside your reddish feet."

|'If you always recite this song, your ego will not come, you will not think you are a Vaishnav. You will take remnants of the Vaishnavs, prasad, and you will think always you are a fallen soul, then you will never get proud, 'Oh, I am taking the remnants!' Humility, dainyata will come.'|

work, you do that, what is your service, you do that,
and all other time you only chant Hare Krishna maha-mantra.”
