gaurāńgera duṭi pada, jār dhana sampada,

gaurāńgera madhura-līlā, jār karṇe praveśilā,
hṛdoya nirmala bhelo tār
je gaurāńgera nāma loy, tāra hoy premodoy,
tāre mui jāi bolihāri
gaurāńga-guṇete jhure, nitya-līlā tāre sphure,
se jana bhakati-adhikārī
gaurāńgera sańgi-gaṇe, nitya-siddha kori' māne,

śrī-gauḍa-maṇḍala-bhūmi, jebā jāne cintāmaṇi,
tāra hoy braja-bhūme bās
gaura-prema-rasārṇave, śe tarańge jebā ḍube,
gṛhe bā vanete thāke, 'hā gaurāńga' bo'le ḍāke,
narottama māge tāra sańga
WORD FOR WORD TRANSLATION: Gaurangera Duti Pada
1) Anyone who has accepted the two lotus feet of Lord Caitanya can understand the true essence of devotional service. If one is captivated by the pleasing pastimes of Lord Caitanya, the dirty things in his heart will all become cleansed.
2) One who simply takes the holy name of Gaura-sundara, Sri Krsna Caitanya, will immediately develop love of God. To such a person I say: Bravo! Very nice! Excellent! If one appreciates the merciful pastimes of Lord Caitanya and feels ecstasy and sometimes cries, this process will immediately help him to understand the eternal pastimes of Radha-Krsna.
3) Simply by understanding that the associates of Lord Gauranga are eternally free from material contamination, one can immediately be promoted to the transcendental abode of Lord Krsna. If one simply understands that the land of Navadvipa is not different from Vrndavana, then he actually lives in Vrndavana.
4) If one says: "Let me dive deep into the waves of the nectarean ocean of the transcendental loving movement introduced by Lord Caitanya", he immediately becomes one of the confidential devotees of Radha and Krsna. It does not matter whether one is a householder living at home or a vanaprastha or sannyasi living in the forest, if he chants "O Gauranga, and becomes a devotee of Lord Caitanya, then Narottama dasa begs to have his association.
