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."
devim gunaih su-lalitam lalitam namami
"When Lalita Devi finds a drop of perspiration at the feet of Sri Sri
Radha-Govinda, she furiously engages herself to remove it. 'How has it come
there? We are circumambulating Them to see that not the least pain can enter
this domain to trouble Them, but how, without our notice, has this
perspiration appeared? Perspiration, perspiration!' So she is furiously
chastising herself and wants to immediately take birth one lakh (100,000)
times—with that force she comes to remove that drop of perspiration
from the lotus feet of either of the Divine Couple."
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."
