namo bhaktivinodāya sac-cid-ānanda-nāmine
gaura-śakti-svarūpāya rūpānuga-varāya te
I offer praṇāma to you, Śrīla Saccidānanda Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura, the foremost of rūpānugas and the personal manifestation of Śrī Gaurāṅga’s śakti [Gadādhara Paṇḍita].
viśveṣu caitanya kathā pracārī māhātmya śaṁsī guru vaiṣṇavānām
nāma grahādarśa iha smṛtiḥ kiṁ citte bhaved bhaktivinoda-devaḥ
When will that divine personality, Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura, who has propagated the message of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu throughout the whole world, who has proclaimed the glories of Śrī Guru and Vaiṣṇavas, and who has demonstrated the exemplary method for chanting Śrī Nāma, forever be remembered in my heart?
