TRANSLATION

1)
The spiritual master is receiving benediction from the ocean of mercy. Just as
a cloud pours water on a forest fire to extinguish it, so the spiritual master
delivers the materially afflicted world by extinguishing the blazing fire of
material existence. I offer my respectful obeisances
unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master, who is an ocean of auspicious
qualities.

2)
Chanting the holy name, dancing in ecstasy, singing, and playing musical
instruments, the spiritual master is always gladdened by the sańkīrtana movement of Lord Caitanya
Mahāprabhu. Because he is relishing the mellows
of pure devotion within his mind, sometimes his hair stands on end, he feels
quivering in his body, and tears flow from his eyes like waves. I offer my
respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a
spiritual master.

3)
The spiritual master is always engaged in the temple worship of Srī Srī Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa.
He also engages his disciples in such worship. They dress the Deities in
beautiful clothes and ornaments, clean Their temple,
and perform other similar worship of the Lord. I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a spiritual master.

4)
The spiritual master is always offering Kṛṣṇa
four kinds of delicious food [analyzed as that which is licked, chewed, drunk,
and sucked]. When the spiritual master sees that the devotees are satisfied by
eating bhagavat-prasāda, he is satisfied. I
offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of
such a spiritual master.

5)
The spiritual master is always eager to hear and chant about the unlimited
conjugal pastimes of Rādhikā and Mādhava, and Their qualities,
names, and forms. The spiritual master aspires to relish these at every moment.
I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet
of such a spiritual master.

6)
The spiritual master is very dear, because he is expert in assisting the gopīs, who at different times make different tasteful
arrangements for the perfection of Rādhā
and Kṛṣṇa’s conjugal loving affairs
within the groves of Vṛndāvana. I offer my
most humble obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a
spiritual master.

7)
The spiritual master is to be honored as much as the Supreme Lord, because he
is the most confidential servitor of the Lord. This is acknowledged in all
revealed scriptures and followed by all authorities. Therefore I offer my
respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of such a
spiritual master, who is a bona fide representative of Srī
Hari [Kṛṣṇa].

8)
By the mercy of the spiritual master one receives the benediction of Kṛṣṇa. Without the grace of the spiritual
master, one cannot make any advancement. Therefore, I should always remember
and praise the spiritual master. At least three times a day I should offer my
respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of my
spiritual master.

9)
One who, with great care and alteration, loudly recites this beautiful prayer
to the spiritual master during the Brahma-muhurta
obtains direct service to Krsna, the Lord of Vrndavana, at the time of his death.
