Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 1.3-4
śrī-rūpa, sanātana bhaṭṭa-raghunātha
śrī-jīva, gopāla-bhaṭṭa, dāsa-raghunātha
ei chaya gurura karoń caraṇa vandana
yāhā haite vighna-nāśa, abhīṣṭa-pūraṇa
śrī-rūpa — Śrī Rūpa; sanātana — Sanātana; bhaṭṭa-raghunātha — Bhaṭṭa Raghunātha; śrī-jīva — Śrī Jīva; gopāla-bhaṭṭa — Gopāla Bhaṭṭa; dāsa-raghunātha — Dāsa Raghunātha; ei chaya — these six; gurura — of spiritual masters; karoń — I offer; caraṇa vandana — prayers to the lotus feet; yāhā haite — from which; vighna-nāśa — destruction of all impediments; abhīṣṭa-pūraṇa — fulfillment of desires.
I pray to the lotus feet of the six Gosvāmīs — Śrī Rūpa, Sanātana, Bhaṭṭa Raghunātha, Śrī Jīva, Gopāla Bhaṭṭa and Dāsa Raghunātha — so that all impediments to my writing this literature will be annihilated and my real desire will be fulfilled.
If one wants to benefit the entire world, he will certainly find persons like hogs and pigs who will put forward many impediments. That is natural. But if a devotee seeks shelter at the lotus feet of the six Gosvāmīs, the merciful Gosvāmīs will certainly give the Lord's servitor all protection. It is not astonishing that impediments are placed before those who are spreading the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement all over the world. Nevertheless, if we adhere to the lotus feet of the six Gosvāmīs and pray for their mercy, all impediments will be annihilated, and the transcendental devotional desire to serve the Supreme Lord will be fulfilled.
