"I bow my head in eternal obeisance to my Gurudev, the best of acharyas,
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj. He is the ever vigilant, stalwart
guardian of the current of pure devotion whose highest form flows from our
most worshippable Sri Rupanuga Guru-varga in their exclusive dedication to
Mahabhav, Srimati Radharani."

govindabhidham ujjvalam vara-tanum bhakty anvitam-sundaram
vande visva-gurun cha divya-bhagavat-premno hi bija-pradam
I offer my obeisance unto he who perfectly fulfils his Gurudev's most
cherished desires; who is fully adorned with the blessings of his Gurudev’s
associates; who is expert in all aspects of Vedic knowledge, both conceivable
and inconceivable; who is the pre-eminent follower of Srila Rupa Goswami
Prabhu's line; who is known as 'Govinda'—Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda
Dev-Goswami Maharaj; whose beautiful, effulgent, exalted form is infused
with pure devotion; who is the Guru of the entire universe; and who is the
giver of the seed of divine love for the Supreme Lord.

tarpana mora vaisnavera nama
vaisnavera uchchhista tahe mora mano-nistha
vaisnavera namete ullasa
"The feet dust of the Vaishnavs is where I sport and take bath, Vaishnavs'
name is the water oblation. My mind is intently fixed upon the remnants of
Vaishnavs, and I am elated at the name of Vaishnavs."

"If the Ganges touches someone, they are purified some time later; but one
becomes purified just by seeing you, O Vaishnava Thakur. Such is your power."
