devaṁ divya-tanuṁ suchanda-vadanaṁ bālārka-celāñcitaṁ
sāndrānanda-puraṁ sad-eka-varanaṁ vairāgya-vidyāmbudhim
śrī-siddhānta-nidhiṁ subhakti-lasitaṁ sārasvatānām varaṁ
vande taṁ śubhadaṁ mad-eka-śaraṇaṁ nyāsīśvaraṁ śrīdharam
His speech is most charming and his form is adorned with garments that resemble the hue of the early morning sun. He is the abode of condensed transcendental bliss, the principle choice amongst devotees, and a veritable ocean of renunciation and knowledge. He is a treasure-house of pure siddhānta, resplendent with beautiful devotion, and is foremost amongst the followers of Sarasvatī Ṭhākura. I offer my obeisance unto that leader of sannyāsīs, Śrīla Śrīdhara Deva Gosvāmī, who bestows auspiciousness and is my sole shelter.
vande śrī-guru-gaurāṅgau rādhā-govinda-sundarau
sa-gaṇau gīyate cāthā gītā-gūḍhārtha-gauravam
Offering obeisance to Śrī Śrī Guru-Gaurāṅga, Rādhā-Govindasundara, and Their associates, I sing the glories of the hidden treasure of the Bhagavad-gītā. (Śrīla Śrīdhara Deva Gosvāmī Mahārāja)
