vṛndāvana-dāsera pāda-padma kari' dhyāna
tāńra ājñā lañā likhi yāhāte kalyāṇa
vṛndāvana-dāsera — of Śrīla Vṛndāvana dāsa Ṭhākura; pāda-padma — lotus feet; kari' — doing; dhyāna — meditation; tāńra — his; ājñā — order; lañā — receiving; likhi — I write; yāhāte — in which permission; kalyāṇa — all auspiciousness.
I took permission from Śrīla Vṛndāvana dāsa Ṭhākura by praying at his lotus feet, and upon receiving his order I have attempted to write this auspicious literature.
Śrīla Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja Gosvāmī took permission not only from the Vaiṣṇavas and Madana-mohana but also from Vṛndāvana dāsa Ṭhākura, who is understood to be the Vyāsa of the pastimes of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu.
