"জগতে শ্রীল ভক্তিবিনোদের এই অতুলনীয় দানের কোন উপমা নাই—কোন বিনিময় নাই । আজ্­কের এই তিথিকে অবলম্বন করিয়াই তিনি প্রকটিত হইয়াছিলেন । অতএব এই তিথিও পরম পূজনীয়া, বরণীয়া এবং করুণাময়ী । আমার এমন কোন উপায়নই নাই যাহার দ্বারা আমি এই তিথিবরার পূজা করি ।"

"...Their dear follower is Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur. His associate is the best of the topmost devotees, Srila Gaura Kisor Das Babaji, whose sole joy is Sri Hari's service."

Prayers to Sri Vaishnav Thakur:

SONG: Ei-bara karuna kara | এইবার করুণা কর
"O worshippable Vaisnava, be merciful to me this time. O saviour of the fallen, without you there is no one. In every birth I aspire for the dust of your feet."

SONG: Ohe Vaisnava Thakura | (ওহে) বৈষ্ণব ঠাকুর
"O worshippable Vaishnav, ocean of grace, be merciful to this servant. Give me the shade of your feet and purify me. I clasp your feet. You can give Krishna, you have that power. Calling, 'Krishna!' 'Krishna!', I run after you."

SONG: Ki-rupe paiba seva | কিরূপে পাইব সেবা
"I am so wicked, how will I ever get service? I do not have any attachment to Sri Guru and Vaishnavs! Prabhu, you see no fault in others, you are the saviour of the fallen. Please deliver Narottam this time!"

SONG: Dhana mora nityananda | ধন মোর নিত্যানন্দ
