TRANSLATION

1) I remember Sri Navadvipa-dhama, the eternal and blissful land which is splendidly situated on the charming banks of the holy Bhagirathi River in Sri Gaua-desa.

 

2) I remember Sri Navadvipa-dhama, which some say is VaikuN†ha and others say is Goloka, but those who have realized the truth know it as Vrndavana.

 

3) I remember Sri Navadvipa-dhama, the land which illuminates all directions. Attractive with its gentle, cooling breezes and various beautiful trees, it provides Sri Gaurasundara with a wonderful facility to perform His midday sankirtana pastimes.

 

4) I remember Sri Navadvipa-dhama, where with her many waves the Bhagirathi joyfully flows, and where steps composed of gold decorate the river banks.

 

5) I remember Sri Navadvipa-dhama, where countless golden palaces are splendidly situated and where Laksmidevi resides in each and every home.

 

6) I remember Sri Navadvipa-dhama, where the residents are adorned with all good qualities such as knowledge, compassion, forgiveness, and sacrifice, and are praised even by the sages, demigods, and perfected souls.

 

7) I remember Sri Navadvipa-dhama, where Sri Gaurasundara performed pastimes such as taking birth and where the blissful home of Sri Jagannatha Misra is situated.

 

8) I remember Sri Navadvipa-dhama, where Sri Gaurahari and His devotees wandered here and there performing sankirtana which was so full of prema that it immersed everyone in an ocean of ujjvalabhava.

 

9) Those who joyfully recite these eight verses of poetry, which bring remembrance of Navadvipa dhama, will obtain that rare love for the lotus feet of Sri SacI-nandana Gaurahari.
