TRANSLATION

1) "Svarupa Damodara, he is yours." With these words affectionately marked with a smile and making Raghunatha dasa so happy the hairs of his body stood erect, Lord Gauracandra gave a sign of His deep love in that secluded place. May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart.

 

2) "Svarupa Damodara, how did Rupa Gosvami understand the wound in My heart? Read this verse he wrote about it on this palm leaf." Speaking these words, the Lord made Rupa Gosvami's heart tremble with ecstatic love. May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart.

 

3) "Svarupa Damodara, among these aspiring devotees you have not selected one worthy to explain the most exalted parakiya-rasa." With a glance the Lord then singled out the astonished Sanatana Gosvami. May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart.

 

4) "Svarupa Damodara, I made the entire universe chant Lord Hari's name. Why can I not make this son of Sivananda Sena chant?" By speaking these words the Lord transformed that child into a great poet. May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart.

 

5) "Svarupa Damodara, let the lotus-eyed gopis describe the nectar stream that flows in Vraja. My ears yearn for that stream, which is born from intense jealous love. Here is the jealous goddess of fortune! Look!" Speaking in this way, may Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart.

 

6) "Svarupa Damodara, you are a temple of nectar! You are the home of My happiness! Here in Jagannatha Puri you are My Vraja!" Speaking these words and embracing him, the Lord overwhelmed Svarupa Damodara, making the hairs of his body stand up in ecstasy. May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart.

 

7) "Svarupa Damodara, what did I see?"

"Where, my Lord?"

"In a dream at night."

"Tell me, what was it, my Lord."

"It was a youth that was a monsoon cloud."

"What did He do? Do You see Him now?"

"He has not left My sight."

May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart.

 

8) "Svarupa Damodara, why does smiling Krsna not come before My eyes? O Friend, why does He not extend His hand to Me?" Again and again He runs, stumbles, sighs, and trembles. May Lord Gauracandra eternally shine in my heart.

 

9) Lord Caitanya makes a saintly devotee who daily reads these eight wonderful and confidential verses glorifying Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and filled with the nectar pastimes of the Lord with Svarupa Damodara Gosvami taste the sweetness of deep love for His lotus feet. He makes him a personal associate of Svarupa Damodara.
