আছুক দাসের কার্য, সে-প্রেম দেখিতে শুষ্ক-কাষ্ঠ-পাষাণাদি মিলায ভুমিতে ॥ ৬ ॥

आछुक दासेर कार्य, से-प्रेम देखिते शुष्क-काष्ठ-पाषाणादि मिलाय भुमिते ॥ ६ ॥

āchuka dāsera kārya, se-prema dekhite śuṣka-kāṣṭha-pāṣāṇādi milāya bhumite || 6 ||

achuka dasera karya, se-prema dekhite suska-kastha-pasanadi milaya bhumite (6)

English translation:

(6) By the sight of His love, even dry wood and stone melted, what to speak of His servants.

Commentary: Gauḍīya-bhāṣya by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura:

In dry wood there is no tinge of water; the same is true of stone. Yet by the manifestation of Gaurasundara’s love even hearts that were as dry as wood and as hard as stone became flooded with love. As a result of their service, all His servants became absorbed in love of God. Even inanimate objects that were incapable of seeing His love melted.
