159 "At the time of performing your own service take her along and gradually she will receive the mercy of Sri Radha. Without the mercy of Radha, have we ever seen anyone attain the service of the Divine Couple?"

160 Hearing Lalita's words, Ananga Manjari will give me a residence next to her own grove, making me her own maidservant. At the time of going to serve the Divine Couple, she will be very affectionate and graciously allow me to accompany her as a friend.

161 Performing my own duties, I shall catch a glimpse of the beautiful Divine Couple in the distance. And then, perhaps Srimati Radharani Herself will give me a direct order, show me Her personal mercy, and give me the shade of Her own lotus feet.

162 I will perpetually remain absorbed in performing that service, and gradually I will become skilful in its execution. By my expertise, I shall please Radha and Govinda. As a reward for my services, I will from times to time receive prasadam ornaments that They had previously worn...

163...My dream suddenly breaks and I shall softly weep and weep. Gazing back at Sri Pulina, I will cross the river Bhagirathi. Living in my private grove next to Isodyana [the Lord's Garden] I will worship the greatest treasure - the Divine Couple Sri Sri Radha and Krsna, Who are non different from the moonlike Sri Gauranga.

164 I will worship Radha and Govinda while staying fixed in my own vows, and shall perpetually gaze upon Radha Kunda and Vrindavan. Remembering the feet of Ananga Manjari sakhi, and remaining immersed in the bliss attained by my particular services performed for Their Lordships, I will thereby drown in pure ecstatic prema.

165 This Bhaktivinoda, the servant of the servants of Lord Sri Krsna Caitanya, is begging for residence in Navadvipa Dhama. I am eager for the feet of Rupa Gosvami and Raghunatha Gosvami [Rupa Manjari and Rati Manjari], and from them I anxiously beg to achieve my own desired perfect spiritual body and service.

166 O residents of Navadvipa, Vrindavan and Jagannatha Puri! Please establish me eternally in Isodyana, the abode of the Lord! That is certainly within my power, for this is also your abode. As my position is simply as a servant, only on the pretext of somehow assisting you in your service to Their Lordships will I be able to obtain residence in the Dhama.

167 O Navadvipa Dhama, please shower me with your mercy! Without your favor, how can anyone attain residence in the Lord's holy abode? Please do not consider whether I am qualified or not. I am simply clinging to the instructions of Jahnava Mata and Nityananda Prabhu as the essence of my life.

168 Whoever reads this Bhava Taranga with devotional faith will experience the nectar of the sportive pastimes of Gauranga arising in their minds. Sri Svarupa Damodara will certainly show them mercy, accepting them as personal associates in the spiritual Dhama while giving the shade of his own feet.

Thus ends Navadvipa Bhava Taranga by Thakura Bhaktivinoda.
