śikṣā dila mora kāne
“jāno mora kathā, nāmera kāńgāla!
rati pā’be nāma-gāne
parama jatane kori’
rasanā-mānase, koraho niyoga,
braje kori’ bāsa, rāgānugā hoiyā,
smaraṇa kīrtana koro
e nikhila kāla, koraho jāpana,
upadeśa-sāra dharo’ ”
hā! rūpa-gosāi, doyā kori’ kabe,
dibe dine braja-bāsa
rāgātmika tumi, tava padānuga,
hoite dāsera āśā
1) O Lord Hari, Sri Rupa Gosvami, in the form of the spiritual master, gave these instructions to my ears: “Try to understand my words, O you who begs for the gift of the holy name, for by these instructions you will develop attraction for chanting the holy name.
2) “Follow the scriptural rules and regulations and engage your tongue and mind in carefully chanting and remembering the holy names, divine forms, qualities, and wonderful pastimes of Lord Krishna.
3) “Dwell in the holy land of Vraja, cultivate spontaneous loving devotion (raganuga-bhakti), and spend your every moment chanting and remembering the glories of Sri Hari. Just accept these as the essence of all instructions”.
4) O Rupa Gosvami, when out of your causeless mercy, will you enable this poor wretched soul to reside in Vrndavana? You are a ragatmika devotee, an eternally liberated, intimate associate of Radha and Krsna. This humble servant of yours desires to become a follower at your lotus feet
