kaba gaura-vane, suradhuni-late,
'ha radhe ha krsna' bole'
kandiya bera 'ba deho-sukha chari,
1. When will I wander, weeping, under the shade of various trees and creepers on the banks of the Ganges in the land of Navadvipa crying, "O Radha! O Krsna!", forgetting all physical comforts?
swa-paca-grhete, magiya khaibo,
puline puline, gara-gari dibo,
2. I will even take my meals by begging at the homes of the candalas and will drink the water of the Saraswati. In ecstasy I will roll on the ground along the banks of the river, raising an uproar of "Krsna! Krsna!"
drama-basi-jane pranati koriya,
magibo krpara lesa
vaisnaba-carana-renu gaya makhi,
3. Bowing to the inhabitants of the holy land of Navadvipa, I will beg a bit of their mercy. I will [wear] the dress of a mendicant and smear the dust of the Vaishnava's feet on my body.
gauda-braja-jane, bheda na dekhibo,
dhamera swarupa, sphuribe nayane,
haibo radhara dasi
4. I will see no difference between the inhabitants of Vrajabhumi and those of Navadvipa, and I will be transformed into a resident of Vraja. The true nature of the Lord's abode will manifest to my eyes, and I will become a maidservant of Srimati Radharani.
In Satya yuga, a king of the name of Suvarna Sena lived here. Once Narada Muni came to him and informed him, "You are simply engrossed in serving your body and family, but still you are lucky, because you are living in the Dhama of Navadvipa. Thus you have every chance of attaining the grace of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and entering in the eternal pastimes of Radha and Krsna. If you start to chant the name of Gauranga, you will definitely attain the perfection in this life."
Later King Suvarna Sena became Buddhimanta Khan in the pastimes of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. It was Buddhimanta Khan who provided all the funds and paraphernalia for the marriage of Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Vishnu priya devi.
Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati established Sri Suvarna-vihar Gaudiya matha here.
