"I bow my head in eternal obeisance to my Gurudev, the best of acharyas,
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj. He is the ever vigilant, stalwart
guardian of the current of pure devotion whose highest form flows from our
most worshippable Sri Rupanuga Guru-varga in their exclusive dedication to
Mahabhav, Srimati Radharani."
|tirtha-phala sadhu-sanga,||sadhu-sange antaranga,
|yatha sadhu, tatha tirtha,||sthira kari’ nija-chitta,|
|sadhu-sanga kara nirantara|
The result of visiting a place of pilgrimage is sadhu-sanga (pure devotees’
association) and being drawn to the exclusive service of Sri Krishna. A place
of pilgrimage is where a sadhu (pure devotee) is. Always keep the association
of pure devotees and firmly fix your mind by such association.
|vaisnavera pada-dhuli||tahe mora snana-keli

|vaisnavera namete ullasa|
"The feet dust of the Vaishnavs is where I sport and take bath, Vaishnavs'
name is the water oblation. My mind is intently fixed upon the remnants of
Vaishnavs, and I am elated at the name of Vaishnavs."

"If the Ganges touches someone, they are purified some time later; but one
becomes purified just by seeing you, O Vaishnava Thakur. Such is your power."
