आसीद्देववने पुण्ये श्यामदास इति श्रुतः
वैष्णवाराधनपरो गृहस्थः कृष्णकिङ्करः
आचरन् साधुकैनकार्यं सह पत्न्याsनुकूलया
दीनोपि पूर्णह्रदयः कृष्णभक्तिं चकार सः
There was a householder named Shyamadasa in a holy village called Devavana. He was very much interested in the service of the Lord and HIs devotees. He was very poor, yet magnanimous. Along with his amicable wife, he engaged in the pooja of Shri Krishna and the service of His devotees.
