10) Sri Tulasi-kirtana
namo namah tulasi! krsna-preyasi
radha-krsna-seva pabo ei abhilasi
je tomara sarana loy, tara vancha purna hoy
krpa kori' koro tare brndavana-basi
mor ei abhilas, bilas kunje dio vas

ei nivedana dharo, sakhir anugata koro
seva-adhikara diye koro nija dasi
dina krsna-dase koy, ei jena mora hoy
sri-radha-govinda-preme sada jena bhasi
