dāna, pratigraha,† mitho gupta-kathā,
sańgera lakṣana,† ei chaya hoya,
ihāte bhaktira prāna
tattva nā bujhiye,† jŮāne vā ajŮāne,
asate e saba korií
bhakti hārāinu,† saḿsārī hoinu,
sudūre rohile hari
kṛṣṇa-bhakta-jane,† ei sańga-lakṣane,
ādara koribo jabe
bhakti-mahā-devī,† āmāra hṛdoya-
āsane bosibe tabe
yoṣit-sańgī-jana,† kṛṣṇābhakta āra,
tava bhakta-jana-† sańga anukṣana,
kabe vā hoibe hari!
1) O Lord Hari, to offer a gift and receive one in return, to give and receive spiritual food, to reveal oneís confidential thoughts and make confidential inquiries ó these are the six characteristics of loving association, and in them is found the very soul of devotion.
2) I have failed to understand the Absolute Truth, and by practicing these six activities with non-devotees, either knowingly or unknowingly, I have lost all devotion. Thus I have become a materialist. For me, You, O Lord, remain afar.
3) The day I cherish these activities of intimate association with the devotees of Sri Krsna, that day the great goddess of devotion will ascend the throne of my heart.
4) When will I give up the company of those who are addicted to women and those who are not devoted to You? When will I get the constant association of Your devotees, O Lord?
