Hare Krsna Guru-Dev

I was trying to understand meaning of words

śrī-guru-charaṇa-padma  kevala-bhakati-sadma vando̐ muñi sāvadhāna-mate

it is translated as

I carefully offer obeisance unto the lotus feet of Śrī Guru, which are the abode of pure bhakti

sāvadhāna - means careful.

will it be possible to know why Srila Narottama Thakur used word sāvadhāna?

and what could be non-careful obeisance?

trying to follow

HpS - I don't know. Have not heard, but seems appropriate. We offer respects so many times as a careless formality.

Sincerely looking at Srila Prabhupada, Murti, during Puja to see his thought.
