garuḍa paṇḍita laya śrīnāma-mańgala
nāma-bale viṣa yāńre nā karila bala
garuḍa paṇḍita — Garuḍa Paṇḍita; laya — takes; śrī-nāma-mańgala — the auspicious Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra; nāma-bale — by the strength of this chanting; viṣa — poison; yāńre — whom; nā — did not; karila — affect; bala — strength.
Garuḍa Paṇḍita, the thirty-seventh branch of the tree, always engaged in chanting the auspicious name of the Lord. Because of the strength of this chanting, even the effects of poison could not touch him.
Garuḍa Paṇḍita was once bitten by a poisonous snake, but the snake's poison could not affect him because of his chanting the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra.
