72. We devotees are not endowed with any poetical talent.
We have no skill in philosophical dialects.
Have not mastered Vedanta philosophy.
Nor have we the prowess to refute the doctrines of opposing scholars.
We are merely humble servants of the mischievous cowherd boy, Gopala (Sri Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya)
73.We care not for those who ridicule us devotees and speak ill of us, but rather we tell them to talk as they please.
We are very intoxicated in savoring the palatable wine of Lord Hari's love, that we delight ourselves by dancing, rolling about on the ground, and fainting in our moments of ecstasy (Sri Saurvabhauma Bhattacharya)
74.I am not a brahmanaa, nor am I a ksatriya, nor a vaishya nor sudra.
I am not a brahmachari, grhastha, vanaprastha, or sanyasin.
I am ONLY the servant of the servant of the servant of the Lotus feet of the Lord, who is the husband of the gopis, who is but an ever waxing ocean of the nectar of diving bliss. (Sri Chaitanya)
75.The blissful experience of the realization of brahman,
Which is but the effulgence of the inner self, devoid of impurity and unstinted by worldly glory
Illumines the hearts of saintly yogis dwelling in the verdant bpwers of blessed mountains.
(we devotees care not for the accomplishments and experiences of such yogis)
All that we desire is that some cowherd boy
Who delights himself in Vrindavan
Who embodies the amorous sentiments of the gopis
Who is resplendent as a blue sapphire
To forever sport in our hearts.(Sri Ishwara Puri)
76. Those who delight in poetry extol the aesthetic experience of rasa
Those who are devoted to Vedanta glorify the nectarine bliss of brahman realization.
As for us devotees, we take shelter in someone who sports a flute in his hands and is adorned with a garland of gunja berries. (Sri Yadavendra Puri)
