आसीद्बृन्दावने कश्चिद् घनानन्द इति श्रुतः |
दृढवैराग्यसम्युक्तः कृष्णकीर्तनतत्परः ||
कौपीनाच्छादनपरो वृक्षमूलकृतासनः |
फलमूलाशनो नित्यं कृष्णध्यानपरायणः ||
समनिन्दास्तुतिर्धीरः समदुःखसुखो महान् |
श्रीकृष्णनामरसिको विमुखो लोकवेदयोः ||
In Shri Brindavan there was an exalted personality named Ghanananda. He was a determined devotee keenly interested in krishna kirtan. He had unshakeable vairagya. He ued to wear a simple loin-cloth and take a very simple food comprising fruits and roots. He resided under trees and was ever engaged in Krishna dhayana. He found no distinction between abuse or praise, nor did that great man get disturbed in woe or weal. He revelled in chanting the sweet Names of Shri Krishna. He was a man of total renunciation and stood beyond worldly and Vedic restrictions.
