"I fall at the feet of Srila Sridhar-Deva, who with charming expression sings his songs of sweet nectar. Dressed with fine garments like sun newly-risen, he's the true saint the devotees have chosen.

Radiant in pastimes of loving devotion, the abode of pure ecstasy, bestower of good fortune; foremost true follower of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta, foremost great general of the whole renounced order, my lord and my master, my only shelter, I worship his feet, Srila Sridhar-Deva."

"In the great Gaudiya Vaisnava teachers line, as Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati he's renowned.

Next, I pay homage unto that great personality Sri Advaita Prabhu, who is an incarnation of the Lord's devotee, and unto the Lord's eternal associates like Srivasa Pandita, who serve the Lord in loving devotional relationships. Finally, I bow down at the feet of those devotees who hold the actual potency of unalloyed dedication in their hands: Sri Ramananda Raya, Sri Gadadhara Pandita, and Sri Svarupa Damodara.
