haridasa kahena,--"yadi namabhase 'mukti' naya
tabe amara naka katimu,--ei suniscaya"
haridasa kahena—Haridasa Thakura said; yadi—if; nama-abhase—simply by the awakening of the holy name of the Lord; mukti naya—mukti is not available; tabe—then; amara—my; naka—nose; katimu—I shall cut off; ei—this; suniscaya—certain.
Then Haridasa Thakura accepted the challenge offered by Gopala Cakravarti. "If by namabhasa liberation is not available," he said, "certainly I shall cut off my nose."
