pujya-sri-guru-varga-vandita-mahabhavanvitayah sada

"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."

jaya guru maharaja karuna-sagara
sri-bhakti-raksaka deva-goswami sridhara
prakasile nilachale bhuvana-mangala
nitai-chaitanya-deva-seva samujjvala

Glory to Guru Maharaj, Sri Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj, an ocean of mercy. He manifested the effulgent service of Nitai Chaitanyadev in Nilachal for the benefit of the entire world.

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."

We always search for fault in others, but we do not think that we have our own faults—our ego is our problem.
