taiche ami eka kana chunilun lilara
ei drstante janiha prabhura lilara vistara
ami -- I; ati-ksudra jiva -- a very insignificant living being; paksi ranga-tuni -- just like a little bird with a red beak; se -- he; yaiche -- just as; trsnaya -- in thirst; piye -- drinks; samudrera pani -- the water of the sea; taiche -- in the same way; ami -- I; eka kana -- one small particle; chunilun -- touched; lilara -- of the pastimes of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; ei drstante -- by this example; janiha -- all of you know; prabhura -- of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; lilara vistara -- expansion of the pastimes.
I am a very insignificant living being, like a small red-beaked bird. Just as such a bird drinks the water of the sea to quench its thirst, so I have touched only a drop of the ocean of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's pastimes. From this example, you may all understand how expansive are the pastimes of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
