May that Jagannatha Swami, who bestows the opportunity for devotional service upon all godly souls, be the object of my vision.

Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was very thirsty to see the Lord
and His eyes became like two bumblebees drinking the honey from the lotus like eyes of Lord Jagannatha,
who is Krishna Himself.

The eyes of Lord Jagannatha conquered
the beauty of blossoming lotus flowers,
and His neck was as lustrous
as a mirror made of sapphires.

The chin of the Lord, tinged with buff color,
conquered the beauty of the bandhuli flower.
This increased the beauty of His mild smiling,
which was like lustrous waves of nectar.

The luster of His beautiful face
increased at every moment,
and the eyes of hundreds and thousands of devotees
drank its honey like bumblebees.

As their eyes began to drink the nectarean honey of His lotus face,
their thirst increased. Thus their eyes did not leave Him.
Thus Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and His devotees
enjoyed transcendental bliss upon seeing the face of Jagannatha.
