TRANSLATION
1) The lotus feet of Sri Rupa Manjari are my treasure, my devotional service, and my object of worship. They give my life meaning, and they are the life of my life.

2) They are the perfection of rasa, and they are perfection worthy of attainment. They are the very law of the Vedlc scriptures for me. They are the meaning of all my fasts and penances and my silent uttering of my mantras. They are the basis of religion and activities.

3) By the purifying process of favorable devotional service one will attain perfection and with these two eyes be able to see. His transcendental form is shining like moonlight in my heart, and my heart therefore shines and reciprocates. In other words, the ordinary moon lights up the night, and its shine illuminates other objects; but the moon of the effulgence of the form of Sri Rupa Manjari shines into the heart and makes the heart also shine back to the spiritual sky. This moon shines not only in the nighttime, but day and night.

4) Your absence from my vision is like a dose of strong poison, and I will suffer till the end of my life. Narottama dasa Thakura says: "Please give me your mercy and the shade of your lotus feet."

REMARKS/EXTRA INFORMATION:

The snow ball fight continues.......






In a snow ball fight, each and everyone throw snow balls and the situation will be like a chaos. Blind men and elephant also does the same thing, sticking to their own way of understanding. Blind men doesn't see the whole picture as everything ears, legs, trunk in totality should be perceived as elephant.
Similarly, if each one of us start quoting from scriptures or acharyas, we can do so unlimitedly and keep on fighting. But nobody will benefitted in the end. We should take all the points and understand the context in which it was spoken and reconcile to see the whole picture in the present situation. Otherwise we get bewildered and also create confusion to those around us.
