Bhakti Rakshaka Sridhara Deva Goswami

(by Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaja)

I fall at the feet of Srila Sridhara Deva,
who with charming expressions sings his songs of sweet nectar.
Dressed with fine garments like the sun newly risen,
he is the true saint the devotees have chosen.
His detachment and knowledge are just like an ocean,
the treasure house of complete, perfect conclusion.
Radiant in the pastimes of loving devotion,
the abode of pure ecstacy, bestower of good fortune;
foremost true follower of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta,
foremost great general of the whole renounced order,
my lord and my master, my only shelter, I worship his feet, Srila Sridhara Deva.
