Song 1


śrī-guru śrī-gauracandra vṛndābane juba-dwandwa

vraja-vāsi-jana-śrī-caraṇa
vandiyā praphulla mane e bhaktivinoda bhaṇe
rūpanuga-bhajana-darpaṇa

 Glorifying the lotus feet of Śrī Guru, Śrī Gauracandra, the Youthful Couple of Vṛndāvana as well as of all the residents of Vraja, with a cheerful mind this Bhaktivinoda will now narrate the description of the mirror which reflects the worship of those who strictly follow in the footsteps of Śrīla Rūpa Goswāmī.
