Some slokas and notes from today’s lecture:

kanaka-suruchirāṅgaṁ sundaraṁ saumya-mūrtiṁ
vibudha-kula-vareṇyaṁ śrī-guruṁ siddhi-pūrtim
taruṇa-tapana-vāsaṁ bhaktidañ chid-vilāsaṁ
bhaja bhaja tu mano re śrīdharaṁ śam-vidhānam

[Replete with a] sundaram–beautiful, suruchira–radiant, kanaka–golden aṅgam–figure, [wearing] vāsam–garments [resembling the] taruṇa–rising tapana–sun [and] vareṇyam–worshipped vibudha-kula–by the wise, [he is] mūrtim–the embodiment saumya–of serenity. [He is] bhaktidam–the giver of [pure] devotion, pūrtim–granter [of all] siddhi–perfections, [and manifestation] chid–of the divine vilāsam–play. re–O mano tu–mind! bhaja bhaja–Always serve vidhānam–this maker śam–of [your] fortune [manifest if the form] śrī-gurum–dispeller of darkness,  śrīdharam–Śrīla Śrīdhar Swāmī.

His beautiful, radiant golden figure, dressed in garments resembling the rising sun and worshipped by the wise, he is the embodiment of serenity. He is the giver of pure devotion, granter of all perfections, and manifestation of the divine play. O mind! Always serve this maker of your fortune manifest in the form of Śrī Guru, Śrīla Śrīdhar Swāmī.

(Stava-Kusumanjali, Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj)
