Sri Sri Gaura Nityananda Daya
parama koruna, pahu dui jana
saba avatara-sara siromani
Supremely merciful, those Lords of each and all,
Of avataras the best, who have the whole world blessed
with an endless sea of rapture.
bhajo bhajo bhai, caitanya nitai
sudrdha biswasa kori
visaya chadiya, se rase majiya,
mukhe bolo hari hari
Dear brothers hear my cry, just worship Gaura Nitai,
with firm faith in their mercy.
Stop serving your senses, feel everlasting bliss,
chanting loudly Hari Hari!
dekho ore bhai, tri-bhuvane nai,
emona doyala data
pasu pakhi jhure, pasana vidare,
suni’ janra guna-gatha
Dear brothers try to see, has ever such mercy,
within all the worlds been displayed?
Hearing of Gaura Nitai, the birds and beasts all cry,
And even the stones melt away.
samsare majiya, rohili poriya,
se pade nahilo asa
apana karama, bhunjaye samana,
Lochan regretfully, in sensuality,
seeks pleasure in these mortal worlds.
Caught up in my karma, punished by Lord Yama,
with no love for those loving Lords.
The dust from the feet of pure devotees,
Is the cause of Krishna bhakti.
Serving the Vaishnavas is life’s great perfection,
Leading to loving devotion
jetane palana kori
krsna-basati, basati boli’,
parama adare bori
Ekadashi and Janmashtami,
are mothers of bhakti when kept carefully.
With all reverence I will make my home,
where Krishna’s loving lilas were shown.
gaur amara, je-saba sthane,
koralo bhramana range
se-saba sthana, heribo ami,
In the company of pure devotees,
I wish the sacred places to see,
where Gaurasundara my beloved Lord,
performed his pastimes within this world.
mrdanga-badya, sunite mana,
abasara sada jace
gaura-bihita, kirtana suni’,
anande hrdoya nace
My mind always hankers to hear the beat,
of mridangas in the kirtan’s heat.
Hearing the songs Lord Gauranga did sing,
my heart in delight is dancing.
jugala-murti, dekhiya mora,
prasada-seba korite hoya,
sakala prapanca jaya
Beholding the forms of Radha Krishna,
fills my mind with supreme pleasure.
Taking prasadam I soon will destroy,
all thoughts that I can this world enjoy
je-dina grhe, bhajana dekhi,
grhete goloka bhaya
carana-sidhu, dekhiya ganga,
sukha na sima paya
While worshiping Krishna my home is blessed,
by Vrindavan dhama made manifest.
The Lord’s wash water becomes the Ganges,
before my eyes to bring me all bliss.
tulasi dekhi’, juraya prana,
jivana sarthaka mani
Simply by seeing Srimati Tulsi,
I please Lord Krishna and feel ecstasy.
When I take the food Lord Gaura did eat,
my life’s perfection is complete
anakula paya jaha
swikara koroye taha
Thus every day does Bhaktivinode,
gladly accept what is bestowed,
which will assist in the sublimely sweet,
service to Krishna’s lotus feet.
