*Because this song has been composed by S'rî Bhaktisiddhânta Sarasvatî Thakura, he originally has placed his name at the end of the song, as is customarily done by Vaisnava poets. But in order to glorify S'rî Bhaktisiddhânta Sarasvatî Thakura as well as his beloved disciple S'rî A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupâda as spiritual teachers in the preceptorial succession from S'rî Caitanyadeva, the verse as given above has been added; it was before:
