bhakter nirmala-nirjharasya nibhrtam samraksakam sadaram
vande sri-gurudevam anata-sira acharya-varyam nijam
"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."
varsayam vai sajala-jalado vadayan mandra-bherim
yadvad visve bhramati bahudha varidharan cha varsan
tadvad bhumau bhramasi saganair ghosayan gaura-gatha
nityam divyamrta-sukarunam tvam hi deva! pravarsan
"Generally in the rainy season the water-bearing clouds wander about and beat
a deep-sounding drum. Just as in this world clouds wander about and shed
torrents of rain, you and your associates wander about this earth, marching
and proclaiming the glories of Gaura. My Lord, indeed you always pour without
reservation the divine nectar of your mercy."
(By Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, composed in glorification of Srila B.R. Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj)
vaisnavera pada-dhuli tahe mora snana-keli
tarpana mora vaisnavera nama
vaisnavera uchchhista tahe mora mano-nistha
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."
gangara-parasa ha-ile paschate pavana
darsane pavitra kara—ei tomara guna
"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."
