Brihad Bhagavatamrta
Part 1 Chapter 7 Text 144

tvadiyas tah kridah sakrd api bhuvo vapi vacasa
brda srutyangair va sprsati krta-dhih kascid api yah
sa nityam sri-gopi-kuca-kalasa-kasmira-vilasat-
tvadiyanghri-dvandve kalayatu-taram prema-bhajanam

TRANSLATION

Whether by speaking, thinking, hearing, or physical contact, if any person in this world comes in touch even once with these pastimes of Yours and is convinced of their importance, may he be endowed eternally with the power to worship Your feet in pure love, feel resplendent with the saffron dust from the pitcher-like breasts of the blessed gopis.

Brihad Bhagavatamrta
Part 1 Chapter 7 Text 143

payam payam vraja-jana-gana-prema-vapi-marala
sriman-namamrtam aviratam gokulabdhy-utthitam te
tat-tad-vesacarita-nikarojjrmbhitam mista-mistam
sarvai lokan jagati ramayan matta-cesto bhramani

TRANSLATION

O swan gliding in the lakes of Vraja-vrasis' love, I wish that I may wander everywhere always chanting, drinking the nectar of Your names. Those most sweet names arise from the ocean of Gokula and spread the glories of Your infinitely varied dress and ways of acting. As I wander, behaving like a madman, may I distribute joy to everyone in all the worlds.

Brihad Bhagavatamrta
Part 1 Chapter 7 Texts 133-134

svayam prayagasya dasasvamedha-
tirthadike dvaravati-parante
sambhasitanam visaye bhramitva
purnarthatam srimad-anugrahena

vipradinam srotu-kamo munindro
harsat krsnasyananad eva saksat
evam matah prarthayam asa hrdyam
tasmin ramyodara-simhe varam prak

TRANSLATION

From Dasasvamedha-tirtha in Prayaga to Dvaraka, Narada had wandered. And he had spoken with devotees--the brahmana at Prayaga, and all the others--who by the Lord's divine grace had each achieved perfection. Feeling great pleasure, Narada, the king of sages, now wanted to hear of this perfection directly from Lord Krsna's own mouth. Dear mother, Lord Krsna is the all-attractive lion among generous benefactors. Now, therefore, Narada begged from Him the first blessing he wished to receive.

Those dear as life one can never forget, but when reminded of them in a special way one feels happy, like one who has lived a life of good fortune.
