I worship that transcendental seat, known as Svetadvipa where as loving

transcendental purpose tree; where the soil is the purpose gem, all water is

nectar, every word is a song, every gait is a dance, the flute is the favorite

attendant, effulgence is full of transcendental bliss and the supreme spiritual

entities are all enjoyable and tasty, where numberless milk cows always emit

transcendental oceans of milk; where there is eternal existence of

transcendental time, who is ever present and without past or future and hence is

not subject to the quality of passing away even for the space of half a moment.

That realm is known as Goloka only to a very few self-realized souls in this
world.
