Introduction

1 om ajnana-timirandhasya

jnananjana-salakaya

caksur unmilitam yena

tasmai sri-gurava namah

I was born in the darkest of ignorance, and my spiritual master opened my eyes with the torch of knowledge.  I offer my respectful obeisances unto him.*

2 sri-caitanya-mano bhistam

sthapitam yena bhutale

svayam rupah kada mahyam

dadati sva-padantikam

When will Srila Rupa Gosvami Prabhupada, who has established within this material world the mission to fulfil the desire of Lord Caitanya, give me shelter under his lotus feet.*

3 akhila-rasamrta-murtih

prasrmara-ruci-ruddha-taraka-palih

kalita-syama-lalito

radha-preyan vidhur jayati

Let Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, be glorified!  By virtue of His expanding attractive features, He subjugated the gopis named Taraka and Pali and absorbed Syama and Lalita.  He is the most attractive lover of Srimati Radharani and is the reservoir of pleasure for all devotional mellows.*

Song 1

sri-guru-carana-padma,    kebala-bhakati-sadma

bando mui sabadhana mate

jahara prasade bhai,     ei bhava toriy a jai

krsna-prapti hoy jaha hate

To the lotus feet of my spiritual master, which are the abode of pure devotional service, I who am very fallen bow down with great care and attention in my heart.  O brother, crossing the realm of repeated birth and death by his mercy, we will attain Krsna.

2 guru-mukha-padma-bakya,    cittete koriba aikya,

ar na koriho mane asa

sri-guru-carane rati,    ei sei uttam-gati

je prasade pure sarba asa

I will make the words from my spiritual master’s lotus mouth one with my heart.  I do not want the desire for any other thing to stay in my heart.  Love for the spiritual master’s lotus feet is the highest goal.   By his mercy all desires are fulfilled.

3 cakhu-dan dilo jei,   janme janme prabhu sei

dibya-jnan hrde prokasito

prema-bhakti jaha hoite,    abidya binasa jate

bede gay jahara carito

He who gave me eyes to see is my lord, birth after birth.  He made divine knowledge shine in my heart.  From him has come prema-bhakti, which destroys ignorance. The Vedic scriptures sing of his character.

4 sri-guru karuna-sindhu,    adhama janara bandhu

lokanath lokera jibana

ha ha prabhu koro doya,    deho mora pada-chaya

ebe jasa ghusuk tribhuvana

O spiritual master, O ocean of mercy, O friend of the fallen, O Lokanatha, O life of the world, O master, be merciful to me.  Give me the shade of your feet.  May your glories be proclaimed in the three worlds.

5 baisnaba-carana-renu    bhusana kariya tanu

jaha haite anubhaba haya

marjana haya bhajana   sadhu-sange anuksana

ajnana-abidya-parajaya

By making the dust of the Vaisnavas’ feet the ornament of my body, ecstatic love comes.  Washing the Vaisnavas’ lotus feet is my method of worship.  By always associating with the Vaisnavas, I shall overcome the darkness of ignorance.

6 jaya sanatana rupa    prema-bhakti-rasa-kupa

jugala-ujjwala-rasa-tanu

janhara prasade loka    pasarila saba soka

parakatala kalpa-taru janu

O Srila Sanatana Gosvami and Srila Rupa Gosvami, who are two deep wells of the nectar of pure love, two personifications of the splendid nectar of the Divine Couple, and two desire trees by whose mercy the entire world is free from suffering, all glories to you!

7 prema-bhakti-riti jata    nija-granthe su-byakata

kariyachena dui mahasaya

jahara srabana haite    parananda haya cite

jugala-madhura-rasasraya

In your books you two great souls clearly described prema-bhakti.  You are reservoirs of the sweet nectar of the Divine Couple.  Hearing about you brings bliss to the heart.

8 jugala-kisora-prema    jini’ laksa bana hema

hena dhana prakasila janra

jaya rupa sanatana    deha’ more sei dhana

sei ratana mora gela hara

You are fabulously wealthy, possessing ecstatic love for the youthful Divine Couple, a love more precious than gold purified in ten thousand flames.  O Rupa and Sanatana Gosvami, all glories to you!  I beg you, please give me in charity some of these jewel necklaces.

9 bhagabata-sastra-marma    naba-bidha bhakti-dharma

sadai kariba su-sebana

anya-devasraya nai    tomare kahinu bhai

ei bhakti parama-bhajana

I shall eternally engage in the nine-fold process of devotional service, which is the essential message of Srimad-Bhagavatam, and I shall not worship the demigods.  O brother, I say to you: Devotional service is the most exalted kind of worship.

10 sadhu-sastra-guru-bakya    cittete kariya aikya

satata bhasiba prema-majhe

karmi jnani bhakti-hina    ihare karibe bhina

narottama ei tattwa gaje

Making the words of the guru, sadhus and sastras one with my heart, I constantly float and swim in the ocean of pure love.  I am different from the karmis and jnanis, who have no devotion for Krsna.  Narottama speaks the truth.

Song 2

Invocation

srimad-rupa-gosvami-prabhupadenoktam

anyabhilasita-sunyam

jnana-karmady-anavrtam

anukuleyna krsnanu-

silanam bhaktir uttama

Srila Rupa Gosvami Prabhupada has said (Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu 1.1.11)

“Uttama bhakti, or unalloyed devotion unto the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krsna, involves the rendering of devotional service in a way that is favourable to the Lord.  This devotional service should be free from any extraneous motive and devoid of fruitive karma, impersonal jnana and all other selfish desires.”*

1 anya-abhilasa chadi    jnana karma parihari

kaya mane kariba bhajana

sadhu-sange krsna-seba    na pujiba devi-deva

ei bhakti parama-karana

Rejecting all other desires, and abandoning philosophical speculation and fruitive work, in the company of the devotees I will worship and serve Lord Krsna with my body and mind. I will not worship the demigods and demigoddesses.  Devotional service is the reason for my life.

2 maha janera jei patha    tate habe anurata

purbapara kariya bicara

sadhana-smarana-lila    ihate na kara hela

kaya mane kariya susara

Devotedly follow the path of the great devotees in the past.  Properly using your body and mind, don’t neglect either the regulative devotional practices or the remembrance of the Lord’s pastimes.

3 asat-sanga sada tyaga    chada anya gita-raga

karmi jnani parihari dure

kebala bhakata-sanga    prema-katha-rasa-ranga

lila-katha braja-rasa-pure

Always reject the company of the impious.  Give up attraction to non-devotional songs.  Leave the karmis and jnanis far away.  Only associate with the devotees.  Take pleasure in hearing the nectar descriptions of pure love for Krsna.  Become flooded by the nectar of the narrations of the Lord’s pastimes in Vraja.

4 jogi nyasi karmi jnani    anya-debata-pu jaka dhyani

iha-loke dure parihari

karma dharma duhkha soka jeba thake anya joga

chadi bhaja giribara-dhari

Putting the yogis, svamis, karmis, jnanis, demigod-worshippers, and meditators far away, and rejecting the torments that are fruitive work, ordinary religion, and the other yogas, worship Lord Giridhari.

5 tirtha-jatra parisrama    kebala manera bhrama

sarba-siddhi gobinda-carana

drdha-biswasa hrde dhari     mada-matsar ja parihari

sada kara ananya bhajana

The struggle to travel to various holy pilgrimage places is simply the mind’s mistake, because to make spiritual advancement all one actually needs is the lotus feet of Lord Govinda.  Abandoning pride and envy, and with firm faith in your heart, always worship Lord Govinda without deviation.

6 krsna-bhakta sanga kari    krsna-bhakta anga heri

sraddhanbita srabana-kirtana

arcana bandana dhyana    naba-bhakti maha-jnana

ei bhakti parama-karana

See the devotees of Lord Krsna, associate with the devotees of Lord Krsna.  Faithfully engage in the nine-fold process of devotional service, which includes hearing about the Lord, chanting His glories, worshipping Him, offering obeisances to Him, and remembering Him.  Following these activities enlightens the devotees with spiritual knowledge.

7 hrsike gobinda-seba    na pujiba devi-deva

ei ta ananya-bhakti-katha

ara jata upalambha    bisesa sakali dambha

dekhite lagaye mane byatha

I shall use these senses to serve Lord Govinda, and I shall decline to worship the various demigods and demigoddesses.  I shall only speak about pure devotional service.  The numberless different philosophies and conceptions of life are all products of the conditioned soul’s pride.  Trying to understand them brings no real benefit but only a pain within the mind.

8 dehe baise ripu-gana    jateka indriya-gana

keha kara badhya nahi haya

sunile na suna kana    janile na jane prana

drdhaite na pare niscaya

The insubordinate senses are like enemies that live within the body.  Tell the ear to hear and it may rebel, refusing to hear.  Tell the mind to understand a particular point, or become firm in a certain way, and it may very well disobey.

9 kama krodha moha lobha    mada matsar ja dambha-saha

sthane sthane ni jukta kariba

ananda kari hrdaya    ripu kari parajaya

anayase gobinda bhajiba

I shall fight with lust, anger, bewilderment, greed, madness, envy and pride.  Defeating them, I will become blissful at heart, and I will easily become able to worship Lord Govinda.

10 kama krsna-karmarpane    krodha bhakta-dwesis-jane

lobha sadhu-sange hari-katha

moha ista-lablha-bine    mada krsna-guna-gane

nijukta kariba jatha tatha

Lust I will engage in offering the fruits of my work to Lord Krsna.  Anger I will direct towards the enemies of the devotees.  Greed I will engage by being greedy to hear the topics of Lord Hari in the association of the saintly devotees.  Bewilderment will be manifested because I cannot immediately attain my worshipable Lord.  Madness will be there when I madly glorify the transcendental attributes of Lord Krsna.  In this way I will engage each of these in the service of Lord Krsna.

11 anyatha swatanta kama    anrthadi jara dhama

bhakti-patha sada deya bhanga

kiba ba karite pare    kama-krodha sadhakere

jadi haya sadhu-janara sanga

If lust is not controlled, then it becomes the breeding ground for a host of vices and checks one’s advancement on the path of devotional service.  However, if one stays in the association of the saintly devotees, then that association will carry him beyond the influence of lust, anger, and their friends.

12 krodha ba na kare kiba    krodha-tyaga sada diba

lobha moha ei ta kathana

chaya ripu sada hina    kariba manera adhina

krsnacandra kariya smarana

I shall not become angry.  I shall renounce anger.  I shall become free from my six enemies, such as greed and bewilderment.  I shall control my mind, and always remember Lord Krsnacandra.

13 apani palabe saba    suniya gobinda raba

simha-raba jena kari-gana

sakala vipatti jabe mahananda sukha pabe

jara haya ekanta bhajana

When lust and his friends hear the word “Govinda” they immediately begin to flee, as a herd of elephants flees when it hears a lion’s roar.  If one engages in single-pointed devotional service to Lord Krsna, then the worshipper attains transcendental bliss, and all kinds of calamities flee from him.

14 na kariba asat-cesta    labha puja pratistha

sada cinta gobinda-carana

sakala santapa jabe    parananda sukha pabe

prema-bhakti parama-karana

Don’t sin.  Take no interest in profit, adoration, and distinction.  Instead meditate on the lotus feet of Lord Govinda.  In this way all sufferings will go far away and transcendental bliss and pure love for Lord Krsna will spontaneously come.

15 asat-sanga kutinati    chada anya paripati

anya debe na hariha rati

apana apana sthane    piriti sabai tane

bhakti-pathe padaye bigati

Give up the association of the impious non-devotees.  Give up the tendency to find fault in others.  Don’t follow any spiritual path other than devotional service.  Don’t worship the demigods.  If one takes to the worship of the demigods, he becomes deviated from the path of devotional service.

16 apana bhajana-pantha    taha habe anurata

ista-deva-sthane-lila-gane

naisthika bhajana ei     tomare kahila bhai

hanuman tahate pramana

O brother, please become attached to your worshipable Lord alone.  Serve Him without deviation and sing the glories of His pastimes.  I will now quote the words of Hanuman, who demonstrates this exclusive devotion to one’s worshipable Deity.  Hanuman said:

17 srinathe janaki-nathe

abhedah paramatmani

tathapi mama sarvasvam

ramah kamala-locanah

Although He is not different from Lord Narayana, lotus-eyed Lord Rama alone is the be-all and end-all of my life.

18 devaloka pitrloka    paya tara maha-sukha

sadhu sadhu bale anuksana

jugala bhajaye jara    premanande bhase tara

tandera nichani tri-bhubana

If one attains the planets of the demigods or Pitas and enjoys celestial happiness there, then I congratulate him, saying:  well done, well done.  However, I myself would never strive to attain such a thing.  For myself I am content simply to worship the Divine Couple and swim and float in the bliss of pure love for Them.  This pure love is the most valuable object in the three worlds.

19 prthak ayasa-joge    duhkamaya-bisaya-bhoge

braje basa gobinda-sebana

krsna-katha krsna-nama    satya-satya rasa-dhama

braja-jane-sange anuksana

Although I have taken great trouble to try to enjoy the miserable sense-gratification available in this world, I shall now give it up.  I shall now reside in Vraja, serve Lord Govinda, hear and chant the topics of Lord Krsna, chant the holy names of Lord Krsna, and at every moment relish the transcendental mellows of devotional service in the association of the residents of Vraja.

20 sada seba-abhilasa    manete kari biswasa

sada-kala haiya nirbhaya

narottama dasa bole    padinu asat-bhole

paritrana kara mahasaya

I shall always aspire to serve the Lord, and great faith in the Lord will become manifested in my mind.  In this way I shall remain always fearless in all situations.  Narottama dasa says: Somehow or other I have accepted the role of a non-devotee.  O my master,  O great soul, please deliver me.

Song 3

1 tumi ta dayara sindhu    adhama-janera bandhu

more prabhu kara abadhana

padinu asat-bhole    kama-timingile gile

ohe natha kara paritrana

O Lord, You are an ocean of mercy.  You are the friend of the fallen souls. Please notice me.  I have become like a non devotee, swallowed by the timingila fish of lust.  O Lord, please protect me.

2 javat janama mora    aparadhe hainu bhora

niskapate na bhajinu toma

tathapi ha tumi gat    na chadiha prana-pati

mora sama nahika adhama

In every birth I repeatedly offended You.  In every birth I failed to worship You sincerely. No one is as fallen as I.  Nevertheless, You are the only goal of my life.  O Lord of my life, please do not abandon me.

3 patita-pabana nama    ghosana tomara syama

upekhile nahi mora gati

jadi hana aparadhi    tathapiha tumi gati

satya satya jena satyira pati

O Lord, You are known as Patita-pavana, the deliverer of the fallen, and You are also known as Syamasundara.  Please do not ignore my appeal.  Even if I am an offender, I think that You are the real goal of life.  That is the truth.

4 tumi ta parama deba    nahi more upekhiba

suna suna pranera iswara

jadi karon aparaadha    tathapiha tumi natha

seba diya kara anucara

O Supreme Personality of Godhead, please do not neglect me.  O master of my life, please hear my words.  Even if I have committed offenses to You, I always think of You as my master.  Please allow me to serve You as Your associate and follower.

5 kame mora hata cita     nahi jane ni ja hita

manera na ghuce durbasana

more natha angikuru    tumi bancha-kalpa-taru

karuna dekhuka sarba-jana

Lust has destroyed my mind.  I do not know what is actually beneficial for me.  O Lord, You glance mercifully on all living entities and You are like a desire tree fulfilling the desires of everyone.  Please accept me as Your servant.

6 mo-sama patita nai     tribhuvane dekha cai

narottama-pavana nama dhara

ghusuka samsare nama    patita-uddhara syama

nija-dasa kara giridhara

O Lord, You will not see anyone in these three planetary systems who is as fallen as I.  O Lord, please accept the name “Narottama-pavana” (the deliverer of Narottama), and let that name be broadcast throughout the material world.  O Lord Syamasundara, O lifter of Govardhana Hill, O deliverer of the fallen, please accept me as Your servant.

7 narottama bada duhkhi    natha more kara sukhi

tomara bhajana sankirtane

antaraya nahi jaya    ei sei parama bhaya

nivedana kari anuksana

Narottama dasa is very unhappy.  O Lord please engage him in Your sankirtana movement and thus make him happy.  O Lord, I am very afraid that I will not be able to overcome the many obstacles that stop every me from advancing in devotional service.  O Lord, at every moment I beg You to remove all those obstacles.

Song 4

1 ana katha ana byatha    nahi jena jai tatha

tomara carana smrti-majhe

abirata abhikala    tuya guna kala-kala

gai jena satera samaje

O Lord, I do not perform the painful activity of talking about anything other than You, but instead I only talk and think about Your lotus feet.  O Lord, I constantly and without deviation glorify Your transcendental attributes in the assembly of devotees.

2 anya-brata anya-dana    nahi karon bastu-jnana

anya-seba any-deba-puja

ha ha krsna bali bali    bedara ananda kari

mane ara nahe jena duja

I shall not perform any vows not related to You.  I shall not give in charity except as a service to You.  I shall not acquire knowledge except to serve You.  I shall not worship the demigods.  I shall not serve anyone except You.  I shall blissfully wander about repeatedly calling out: “O Krsna! O Krsna!” No one but You will stay in my mind.

3 jibane marane gati     radha-krsna prana-rati

donhara piriti-rasa-sukhe

jugala bhajaye janra    premanande bhase tanra

ei katha rahu mora buke

During the life of this body and after its death, Sri Sri Radha-Krsna will always remain my goal, and the two master’s of my life’s breath.  I worship the Divine Couple and I swim and float in the nectarean ocean of love for Them.  I pray that the description of Their forms, qualities, and pastimes may always remain within my heart.

4 jugala-carana-seba     ei dana mora diba

jugalete manera piriti

jugala-kisora-rupa     kama-rati guna-bhupa

mane bahu o lila-piriti

Please give me the service of the lotus feet of the Divine Couple. Please give this charity to me.  My mind is filled with love for the Divine Couple, whose youthful forms are like the beautiful forms of King Kamadeva and his queen Rati.

5 dasanete trna kari      ha ha kisora-kisori

caranabje nibedana kari

braja-raja-suta syama     brsabhanu-suta nama

sri-radhika-nama manohari

I place a straw between my teeth, and place the following appeal before the lotus feet of the Divine Couple:  O Sri Sri Kisora-Kisori, O Lord Syamasundara, O prince of Vraja, O beautiful girl name Sri Radhika, O daughter of Maharaja Vrsabhanu…..

6 kanaka-ketaki rati     syama marakata taya

kandarpa-darapa karu cura

nata-bara-siromani     natinira sikharini

dunhu-gune dunhun-mana jhura

….O Srimati Radharani, as beautiful as a golden ketaki flower.  O Lord Syamasundara, as splendid as a blue sapphire, O Lords whose transcendental glory crushes Kamadeva’s pride into fine powder, O two crest-jewels of all expert dancers, please allow my mind to remain rapt in thinking of Your transcendental qualities.

7 abharana manimaya     prati ange abhinaya

tachu paye narottama kahe

diba nisi guna gana     parama ananda pana

mane ei abhilasa haya

O Lords whose limbs are decorated with many jewel ornaments, Narottama dasa approaches Your lotus feet and says: My Lords, I wish that I may attain transcendental bliss by singing the glories of Your transcendental qualities both day and night.  That is my mind’s desire.

Song 5

1 ragera bhajana-patha     kahi ebe abhimata

loka-beda-sara ei bani

sakhira anuga hana     braje siddha-deha pana

ei bhabe judabe parani

I shall now describe the path of spontaneous love for Krsna, which is glorified by the exalted devotees and the Vedic literatures.  By traversing this path of spontaneous love one becomes a follower of the gopis and attains the perfect spiritual body of a liberated soul.

2-3 sri-radhikara sakhi jata     taha ba kahiba kata

mukhya sakhi kariye ganana

lalita bisakha tatha     sucitra campakalata

rangadevi sudevi kathana

tungabidya indurekha     ei asta-sakhi lekha

ei kahi narma -sakhi gana

ihon seba-shacari     priya-prestha nama dhari

prema-seba kare anuksana

I shall now describe the most important of Srimati Radharani’s gopi-friends.  Lalita, Visakha, Sucitra, Campakalata, Rangadevi, Sudevi, Tungavidya, and Indulekha, are the eight most important gopi friends of Srimati Radharani.  Her other gopi-friends are divided into groups: the narma-sakhis, priya-sakhis, and prestha-sakhis.  All these gopis constantly render loving service to Srimati Radharani.

4 sri rupa-manjari ara     sri-rati-manjari sara

labanga-manjari manjunali

sri-rasa-manjari-sange     kasturika-adi range

prema-seba kare kutuhali

Sri Rupa-manjari, Sri Rati-manjari, Lavanga-manjari, Manjunali, and Sri Rasa-manjari eagerly and lovingly serve Srimati Radharani, supplying her musk and various other articles.

5 ei-sabara anuga hana     prema-seba niba cana

ingite bhujiba saba kaje

rupa guna dagamagi     sada haba anuragi

basati kariba sakhi majhe

I am the follower of all these gopis.  I shall serve them with great love.  I will completely understand their orders, even when couched in casual hints or gestures.  I shall become immersed in wonder at their transcendental virtues and beauty, and I shall dearly love them.  I shall always remain in their company.

6 brdabane du jana     cari-dike cakhi-gana

samayera seba rasa-sukhe

sakhira ingita habe     camara dhulaba tabe

tambula jogaba canda-mukhe

Immersed in the happiness of serving the Divine Couple surrounded by Their gopi-friends in Vrndavana, I will understand the gopis’ hints, and, taking up the camara wish I will fan the Divine Couple, and after that I will place betel nuts in Their moonlike mouths.

7 jugala-carana sebi      nirantara ei bhabi

anurage thakiba sadaya

sadhane bhabiba jaha     siddha-dehe paba taha

raga pathera ei sei upaya

Someday I will constantly serve the lotus feet of the Divine Couple with great love.  At present I will follow the rules of sadhana-bhakti until I attain a perfected spiritual body and am able to love the Divine Couple spontaneously.

8 sadhane je dhana cai    siddha-dehe taha pai

pakwa pakwa matra sei bicara

pakile sei prema-bhakti     apakwe sadhana khyati

bhakati-laksana-anusara

That treasure of pure love of God for which I hanker while I follow the regulative practices of sadhana-bhakti, I will attain when I have the spiritual body of a liberated soul.  Actually sadhana-bhakti and prema-bhakti are the same devotional service.  Sadhana-bhakti is the stage where love for Krsna has not fully ripened yet, and prema-bhakti is the same devotion where love for Krsna has reached the mature, ripened stage.  That is the description of devotional service.

9 narottama dasa kahe      ei jena mora haye

braja-pure anurage basa

sakhi-gana-gananate     amare ganibe tate

tabahun puriba abhilasa

Narottama dasa says: I hope that I may attain the stage of spontaneous love for the Divine Couple in the town of Vraja.  I hope that I will be counted among the gopi-friends of the Divine Couple. O Divine Couple,, in this way I will be able to serve You and satisfy all Your desires.

10 tatha hi–

sakhinam sangini-rupam

atmanam vasana-mayim

ajna-seva-param tat-tat-

krpalankara-bhusitam

The stage of prema-bhakti is described in the following statements of Vaisnava literature:

“One should meditate on oneself as being the maidservant of the gopis, and in this way one will attain their mercy.”

11 krsnam smaran janam casya

prestham nija-samhitam

tat-tat-katha-ratas casau

kuryad vasam vraje sada

“The devotee should always think of Krsna within himself, and one should choose a very dear devotee who is a servitor of Krsna in Vrndavana.  One should constantly engage in topics about that servitor and his loving relationship to Krsna, and one should live in Vrndavana.  However, if one is physically unable to go to Vrndavana, he should mentally live there.”*

Song 6

1 jugala-carana-prati     parama-ananda tati

rati-prema hau para-bandhe

krsna-nama-radha-nama   upasana rasa-dhama

carane padiye paranande

Love for the lotus feet of the Divine Couple is the resting place of transcendental bliss.  Radha and Krsna’s holy names are the reservoir of transcendental sweetness.  I happily fall down to offer my respectful obeisances to Radha and Krsna’s lotus feet.

2 manera smarana prana    madhura madhura nama

bilasa jugala smrti-sara

sadhya sadhana ei    ara nai iha bai

ei tattwa sarba-tattwa-sara

The Divine Couple’s sweet, sweet holy name is life of the mind’s memory.  Their pastimes are the best remembering.  Remembering Them is both the goal and the way to attain it.  That is the truth of all truths.  This book is not the only place that it is said.

3 jalada-sundara-kanti    madhura madhura bhati

baidagadhi-abadhi subesa

su-pita-basana-dhara    abharana mani-bara

mayura-candrika karu kesa

Sri Krsna is splendid like a monsoon cloud, very sweet and charming, expert, gracefully dressed in yellow garments, decorated with jewel ornament, and crowned with a peacock feather placed in His hair.

4 mrgmada su-candana    kunkumadi bilepana

mugdha-kari murati tri-bhanga

nabina-kusumabali    sri-ange sobhaye bhali

madhu-lobhe phire matta bhrnga

He is decorated with musk, sandal paste, kunkuma, and other fragrances.  His three-fold bending form is sweet and charming.  His transcendental body is decorated with garlands of flowers so fresh they draw swarms of maddened bumblebees eager for honey.

5 isat madhura-smita    baidagadhi-lilamrta

lubadhala braja-badhu-brnda

carana-kamala-para     manimaya su-manjira

nakha-mani jini bala-candra

His gentle smile is sweet.  He is expert at tasting the nectar of transcendental pastimes.  He is surrounded by the amorous girls of Vraja.  His lotus feet are decorated with jewel anklets.  His toenails eclipse the glory of the crescent moon.

6 nupura-marala-dhwani     kula-badhu-maralini

suniya rahite nare ghare

hrdaye barhaye rati     jena mile pati sati

kulera dharama jara dure

When they hear the warbling of the male swan that is Krsna’s anklets, the female swan gopis can no longer remain peacefully in their homes.  Love for Him growing in their hearts, they run, leaving their household duties far behind, to meet Him, their lover.

7 krsna-mukha-dwija-raje     sarala-bamsi-biraje

jara dhwani bhubana mataya

srabane patha diya     hrdaye prabesa hana

prana adi akarsi anaya

The music of the straight flute placed to Krsna’s lips enchants the world.  Entering first the ear and then the heart, that music attracts all living beings.

8 gobinda-sebana satya      tanhara sebaka nitya

brndabana-bhumi te jomaya

tahate jamuna-jala     kare nitya jhalamala

tara tire asta kunja haya

Devotional service to Lord Govinda is eternal.  They who serve Him are His servants eternally.  The land of Vrndavana is glorious.  There the Yamuna’s water glitters eternally.  Eight forests are on the Yamuna’s shore.

9 sitala-kirana-kara     kalpa-taru-guna-dhara

taru-lata sad-rtu-seba

purna-candra-sama jyoti     cid-ananda-maya murti

mahananda-darsana-lobha

Vrndavana is splendid with cooling moonlight and glorious with kalpa-vrksa trees and kalpa-lata vines blossoming in all six seasons.  Full of transcendental bliss and glorious as the full moon, it makes everyone eager to see its blissful form.

10 gobinda anandadamaya    nikate banita-caya

bihare madhura ati sobha

dunhu prema dagamagi    dunhu donha anuragi

dunhu rupa dunhu manolobha

Surrounded by the gopis and very handsome and charming.  Lord Govinda is full of transcendental bliss.  The Divine Couple is beautiful, charming and overcome with passionate love.

anya bola gandu-gola     nahi suna utarola

rakha prema hrdaye bhariya

O mind, take shelter of the lotus feet of the Vrajagopis.  Don’t listen to the useless din of the materialists’ words.  Fill my heart with pure love for the Divine Couple.

jena mana e satya bacana

dhanya lila brndabana     radha-krsna-sri-carana

dhanya sakhi manjirira gana

O mind, just this one time accept Lord Krsna as your supreme master.  I tell you the truth.  Sri Sri Radha and Krsna’s lotus feet are supremely glorious, Their pastimes are glorious, Their land of Vrajapura is glorious, and their friends, the sakhi-gopis and manjari-gopis are glorious.

13 papa-punya-maya deha     sakala anitya eha

dhana jana saba micha dhanda

marile jaibe kotha     tahate na pao byatha

tabu kar ja kara sada manda

This material body, which one attains because of his previous pious and impious deeds is temporary and the foolish attempt by all conditioned souls to accumulate more and more wealth is a clever trick of the illusory potency maya.  When the material body dies, what will happen to all the carefully collected wealth?  Where will it go?  O mind, don’t work day and night with a great struggle simply to collect money.  You are so foolish that you constantly work for such a fleeting goal.

14 rajara je rajya-pata     jena natujara nata

dekhite dekhite kichu naya

hena maya kare jei     parama iswara sei

tanre mana sada kara bhaya

A monarch’s kingdom is just like the dramatic performance of an actor:  although one sees them, they are never actually real, but only a pretence arranged by the illusory energy maya.  O mind, don’t pay attention to these false material things.  Fix your mind always on the Supreme Personality of Godhead.  Fear His displeasure.  Don’t be concerned with other things.

15 pape na kariha mana     adhama sei papi-jana

tare mana dure parihari

punyaje sukhera dhama     tara na laio nama

ara jata ksara nidhi praya

nirantara sukha pabe     sakala santapa jabe

para-tattwa karile upaya

Dive into the shoreless nectar ocean of pure love for Krsna, larger than the largest salt-water ocean.  If one swims in that nectar ocean of live for Krsna, Lord Krsna will make all his sufferings disappear, and he will attain endless transcendental bliss.

17 anyera parasa jena     nahi haya kadacana

ihate haibe sabadhana

radha-krsna nama gana     ei se parama dhyana

ara na kariha paramana

Take great care only to serve the Divine Couple, and don’t let any other activity touch you.  Know that the chanting of the holy names of Sri Sri Radha and Krsna is the supreme spiritual meditation.  Please don’t try to raise any objections to this, or try to present evidence confirming any other view.

18 karmi jnani micha-bhakta     na habe taya anurakta

suddha-bhajanete kara mana

braja-janera jei mata     tahe habe anugata

ei se parama tattwa-dhana

O mind, please engage in pure devotional service, which cannot be followed by the fruitive workers, speculative philosophers, or pseudo-devotees.  Just accept that the opinion of the exalted devotees in Vraja is the perfect explanation of the Absolute Truth.

19 prarthana kariba sada     suddha-bhave prema-katha

nama-mantre kariya abheda

astika kariya mana     bhaja range sri-carane

granthi-papa habe pariccheda

I shall continually offer prayers to the Divine Couple, and I shall describe the pure love of the Lord and His devotees.  With my words I shall prove that the Supreme Lord is not different from the chanting of His holy names.  O mind, have firm faith in Lord Krsna, and worship the reddish soles of His lotus feet.  Do this, and the karmic results of your past sins will be smashed.

20 radha-krsna sri-carana     matra paramartha-dhana

dunhu nama suni suni     bhakta-mukhe puni puni

parama ananda sukha-pana

O mind, please place in my heart Sri Sri Radha Krsna’s lotus feet, which are my only treasure.  Again and again hear the holy names of the Divine Couple from the mouths of the devotees, and in this way attain transcendental bliss.

21 hema-gaura-tanu rai     ankhi darasana cai

rodana karaye abhilase

jaladhara dhara dhara     anga ati manohara

rupete bhubana parakase

Srimati Radharani’s transcendental form has the splendour of gold.  Weeping, I pray to attain the glance of Her lotus eyes.  Sri Krsna’s handsome form is splendid as a monsoon cloud.  From it the entire material cosmos is manifested.

22 sakhi-gana cari-pase     seba kare abhilase

parama se sobha-sukha dhare

ei mane asa mora     aiche rase hana bhora

narottama sada-i bihare

I yearn to engage in devotional service with the gopis at my four sides.  That service is my great happiness.  Again and again Narottama says: This is the desire in my heart.

Song 7

1 radha-krsna karon dhyana     swapane na bala ana

prema binu ara nahi cana

jugala-kisora-prema     jini laksa-bana hema

arati-piriti-rase dhana

Meditate on Sri Sri Radha-Krsna.  Don’t desire anything else, even in your dreams.  The treasure of love for the youthful Divine Couple is more valuable than gold purified in ten thousand flames.

2 jala binu jena mina     duhkha paya ayu hina

prema binu ei-mata bhakta

cataka jalada-gati     e-mati ekanta-rati

jei jane sei anurakta

As a fish without water suffers and dies, so a devotee perishes without love for the Divine Couple.  As a cataka bird carefully follows the clouds, so a devotee loves the Divine Couple.

3 saroja-bhramara jena     cakora-candrika tena

pati-brata stri-lokera pati

anyatra na cale mana     jena daridrera dhana

ei-mata prema-bhakti-riti

As a bumblebee yearns for lotus flowers, a cakora bird yearns for moonlight, a chaste wife yearns for her husband, and a pauper yearns for money, a devotee yearns to attain love for the Divine Couple.

4 bisaya garala-maya     nahe mana sukha-caya

sei na sukha duhkha kari mana

gobinda-bisaya-rasa     sanga kara tanra dasa

prema-bhakti satya kari jana

The happiness of the senses is full of poison.  Pride does not bring happiness.  These things do not bring happiness.  They bring only pain.  Taste the nectar of serving Lord Govinda.  Associate with His devotees.  Learn the truth of loving devotional service.

5 madhye madhye ache dusta     drsti kari haya rusta

gunahi biguna kari mane

gobinda-bimukha-jane     sphurti nahe hena dhane

laukika kariya saba jane

The treasure of divine love does not present itself before the demons, who turn their backs on Lord Govinda, become angry when they see the devotees, and think the devotees are ordinary people.

6 ajnana abhaga jata     nahi laya sata-mata

ahankare na jane apane

abhimani bhakti-hina     jaga-majhe sei dina

brtha tara asesa bhabana

These unfortunate  fools cannot understand the truth.  Proud, bewildered by false-ego, and empty of devotion for the Lord, they are the poorest and most wretched people in the world.  All their thoughts are empty and without meaning.

7 ara saba parihari     parama iswara hari

seba mana prema kari asa

eka-braja-raja-pura     gobinda rasika-bara

karaha sadai abhilasa

O mind, renounce everything and desire only to love and serve the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Hari.  Lord Govinda, the best of they who taste transcendental nectar, stays in King Nanda’s house.  Desire Him alone.

8 narottama dasa kahe     sada mora prana dahe

hena bhakta-sanga na paiya

abhagyera nahi ora     micha-mohe hainu bhora

duhkha rahe antare jagiya

Narottama dasa says: Because I cannot attain the association of devotees, my life is like a burning fire.  No one is unfortunate as I.  I am overcome by material illusion, and great pain is beginning to waken in my heart.

Song 8

1 bacanera agocara     brndabana dhama-bara

swaprakasa premananda-ghana

jahate prakata sukha     nahi jara-mrtyu-duhkha

krsna-lila-rasa anuksana

Vrndavana is beyond the descriptive power of words.  It is the best of all holy places.  It is self-manifest, filled with most intense transcendental bliss, free from the touch of material miseries of old-age and death, and the place where Lord Krsna eternally enjoys nectar pastimes.

2 radha-krsna dunhu prema     jini laksa-bana hema

donhara hillole rasa-sindhu

cakora nayana-prema     kama-rati kare dhyana

piriti sukhera dunhu bandhu

Radha and Krsna’s love is more glorious than gold purified in ten thousand flames.  Radha and Krsna make great waves in the ocean of nectar.  The love in Their eyes is like a cakora bird.  Kama and Rati meditate on Them.  Their love and happiness are the closest of friends.

3 radhika preyasi-bara     bama ange manohara

kanaka-kesara-kanti dhare

anuraga-rakta sari     nila-patta manohari

pratyange bhusana sobha kare

Charming Srimati Radharani, the best of the gopis, stays on Lord Krsna’s left side, Her complexion the colour of the filament of a golden flower, clothed in the garment of ecstatic love for Krsna and a blue silk sari, and Her limbs are beautiful with many ornaments.

4 karaye locana pana     rupa-lila dunhu prana

anande magana sahacari

beda-bidhi-agocara     ratana-bedira para

seba niti kisora-kisori

Become Their gopi-companion.  Make Them more dear than life.  With your eyes drink the nectar of Their beauty and pastimes.  Dive in an ocean of bliss.  Always serve the youthful Divine Couple, who are seated on a jewel throne and beyond the rules of the Vedas.

5 durlabha janama hena     nahi bhaja hari kena

ki lagiya mara bhaba bandhe

chada anya kriya karma     nahi dekha deba-dharma

bhakti kara krsna-pada-dwandwa

Why don’t you worship Lord Hari now that you have this rare human birth?  If you don’t worship Him, what do you think will be your fate after death?  Give up all other duties.  Don’t worship the demigods.  Serve Lord Krsna’s feet.

6 bisaya bisama-gati     nahi bhaja braja-pati

sri-nandanandana sukha-sara

swarga ara apabaraga     samsare naraka-bhoga

sarba-nasa janama-bikara

Do not worship Lord Nandanandana, the blissful master of Vraja, and the entire world around you will become filled with pain.  Become attracted to higher material realms, the attainment of liberation, or the hellish pleasures of this sphere, and your valuable human birth will become spoiled.

7 dehe na kariha astha     manda rite jama sasta

duhkhera samudre karma-gati

dekhiya suniya bhaja     sadhu-sastra-mata yaja

jugala-carane kara rati

Do not put your trust in the material body.  After death Yamaraja will punish you and your karma will push you into an ocean of pain.  Now that you have heard and understood this, please follow the path of the saints and scriptures.  Worship and love the feet of the youthful Divine Couple.

8 karma-kanda jnana-kanda     kebala bisera bhanda

amrta baliya jeba khaya

nana joni sada phire     kadar ja bhaksana kare

tara janma adhah-pate jaya

The fruitive worker of karma-kanda and the speculations of jnana-kanda are two pots of poison.  If one drinks these two poisons, and then proclaims that they are both as sweet as nectar, he will fall from the human realm and spend a long time wandering in many species of life, eating many abominable things, and enjoying many horrible pleasures.

9 radha-krsne nahi rati     anya jane bale pati

prema-bhakti kichu nahi jane

nahi bhaktira sandhana     bharame karaye dhyana

brtha tara se chara bhabane

They who proclaim someone else as their Lord and don’t love Radha-Krsna don’t understand anything of loving devotional service.  Not asking about devotional service and all their thoughts placed in the illusory material world, they have wasted their lives.

10 jnana karma kare loka     nahi jane bhakti-yoga

nana-mate haiya ajnana

tara katha nahi suni     paramartha-tattwa jani

prema-bhakti bhakta-gana-prana

Most people know only of work and philosophy.  They don’t know anything about devotional service.  Each with a different opinion, they are all fools.  Don’t listen to their talk.  Learn about devotional service, the life of the devotees.

11 jagata-byapaka hari     aja-bhaba ajna-kari

madhura madhura lila-katha

ei tattwa jane jei parama uttama sei

tanra sanga kariba sarbatha

Lord Hari is present in every corner of the material world.  Brahma and Siva are His order-carriers.  Talk of His pastimes is very very sweet.  One who know this is a great soul.  I yearn for his association.

12 parama iswara krsna     tankhe hao ati-trsna

bhaja tanre braja-bhaba lana

rasika-bhakata sange     bihara ni jata range

braja-pure basati karina

Thirst to attain Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.  Worship Him.  Love Him as the residents of Vraja did.  Reside in Vrajapura, where Lord Krsna eternally enjoys pastimes.  Stay in the company of great souls that relish the nectar of Krsna.

13 diba-nisi bhaba-bhare     manete bhabana kare

nanda-braje rahibe sadai

ei bakya satya jana     kabhu ithe nahi ana

pramana sri-jiva gosai

Great souls stay always in Vraja, day and night their hearts full of love for Krsna.  That is the truth.  It is not otherwise.  Srila Jiva Gosvami has proved it.

14 sri-krsna-bhakata-jana     tanhara carane mana

aropiya katha-anusare

sakhira sarbatha mata     haina tanhara jutha

sada bihariba braja-pure

I will meditate on the lotus feet of the devotees, hear from them, remember Lord Krsna’s gopi-friends, and always be happy in Vrajapura.

15 lila-rasa-katha gana     jugala-kisora dhyana

prarthana kariba abhilase

jibane marane ei     ara kichu nahi cai

kahe dina narottama-dasa

I will meditate on the youthful Divine Couple and sing of Their nectar pastimes.  I pray for that.  In this life or after death I have no other desire.  Thus speaks poor-hearted Narottama dasa.

Song 9

1 ana katha na suniba     ana katha na baliba

sakali kahiba paramartha

prarthana kariba sada     lalasa abhista-katha

iha binu sakali anartha

I will not hear other talk.  I will not speak other talk.  I will speak about the most precious thing.  I always pray for this.  Aside from the talk I yearn to hear, all other words are useless.

2 iswarera tattwa jata     taha kahiba kata

ananta apara keba jane

braja-pura-prema nitya     ei se parama satya

bhaja sada anuraga-mane

How can I describe the Supreme Personality of Godhead?  He is limitless.  Who can know Him?  The love the people of Vraja feel for Lord Krsna is eternal.  It is the true reality.  Always strive to attain that love.

3 gobinda gokulacandra     parama ananda-kanda

paribara-gopa-gopi sange

nandiswara janra dhama     giridhari janra nama

sakhi-sange bhaja tanra range

Lord Krsna is the pleasure of the cows, land and senses, the moon of Gokula, and the root of transcendental bliss.  He stays with many gopa and gopi friends.  His home is Nandisvara, and His name is Giridhari.  Please, in the company of the gopis, worship Him with love.

4 prema-bhakti-tattwa ei      tomare kahila bhai

ara durbasana parihari

sri-guru-prasade bhai      ei saba bhajana pai

prema-bhakti sakhi anucari

O brother, the truth of loving devotional service has already been explained to you.  O brother, I will leave all material desires behind and, by my guru’s mercy I will perfectly worship Lord Krsna with pure love, and I will become His gopi-maidservant.

5 sarthaka bhajana-patha     sadhu-sanga abirata

smarana bhajana krsna-katha

prema-bhakti haya jadi     tabe haya manah suddhi

tabe jaya hrdayera byatha

Follow the path of sincere devotional service.  Stay among the devotees.  Remember Krsna and talk about Him.  When loving devotion comes, your mind will become pure and all sufferings will flee from your heart.

6 hisaya bipatti jana     samsara swapana mana

nara-tanu bhajanera mula

anurage bhaja sada     prema-bhabe lila-katha

ara jata hrdayera sula

Know that sense happiness is a calamity.  Know that the material world is a dream.  Know that this human life is the root from which devotional service may sprout.  With love always worship Lord Krsna.  With love always hear His pastimes.  To do anything else is to plunge a spear in your own heart.

7 radhika-carana-renu     bhusana kariya tanu

anayase pabe giridhari

radhika-caranasraya     kare jei mahasaya

tanre muni jana balihari

If one decorates his body with the dust from Srimati Radharani’s lotus feet, then it will be very easy for him to attain Lord Giridhari.  I congratulate such a great soul who takes shelter of Srimati Radharani’s lotus feet and I say to him” Well done! Bravo! Excellent!

8 jaya jaya radha-nama     brndabana yanra dhama

krsna-sukha-bilasera nidhi

hena radha-guna-gana     na sunila mora kana

bancita karila more bidhi

Glory, glory to She who is named Radha, whose home is Vrndavana, and who is Lord Krsna’s treasury of blissful pastimes!  Alas, destiny has cheated me, for my ears have not heard Radha’s glories.

9 tanra bhakta-sange sada     rasa-lila-prema-katha

je kare se paya ghanasyama

ihate bimukha jei     tara kabhu siddhi nai

nahi jena suni tara nama

A person who, in the company of the devotees, again and again hears the stories of the pure love in the rasa-dance pastimes will attain Lord Krsna, who is dark as a monsoon cloud.  A person averse to hearing these pastimes will never attain perfection.  I refuse to hear the name of such an offender.

10 krsna-nama-gane bhai     radhika-carana pai

radha-nama-gane krsnacandra

sanksepe kahila katha     ghucaha manera byatha

duhkha-maya any-katha-dwandwa

O brother, by chanting Krsna’s name I will attain Radha, and by chanting Radha’s name I will attain Krsna.  Now I have briefly told you how to chase all sufferings from your heart.  What contradicts my words will bring only pain.

11 ahankara abhimana     asat-sanga asaj-jnana

chadi bhaja guru-pada-padma

kara atma-nibedana     deha-geha-parijana

guru-bakya parama mahattwa

Abandon false ego, pride, company with materialists, and useless material knowledge, and worship the lotus feet of your spiritual master.  Offer your home, friends, relatives, body and self to him.  His words are supreme.

12 sri-krsna-caitanyadeba     nirabadhi tanre seba

prema-kalpa-taru-bara-data

sri-braja-raja-nandana     radhika-jibana-dhana

aparupa ei saba katha

Always serve Sri Krsna Caitanyadeva, who is a kalpa-vrksa tree giving away the treasure of pure love.  He is Lord Krsna Himself, the prince of Vraja and the life of Srimati Radharani.  Talk about Him is full of wonder.

13 nabadwipe abatari     radha-bhabe angikari

tanra kanti angera bhusana

tina bancha abhilasi     saci-garbhe parakasi

sange lana parisada-gana

Accepting the loving emotions of Sri Radha and accepting Her bodily lustre as the ornament of His limbs, Lord Krsna descended to Navadvipa.  Desiring to attain three things, He appear in Saci’s womb.  He attained His desires in the company of His devotees.

14 gaura-hari-abatari     premera badara kari

sadhila manera tina kaja

radhikara prana-pati     kiba bhabe kande niti

iha bujhe bhakata-samaja

Appearing in a fair-complexioned form, He made a great monsoon of spiritual love.  In this way He attained His three desires.  Why did Lord Krsna, the master of Radha, cry again and again?  Only the devotees can know.

15 gopane sadhile siddhi     sadhana nabadha bhakti

prarthana kariba dainye sada

kari hari-sankirtana     sadai bibhola mana

ista-labha binu saba badha

In private I will practice the nine kinds of devotional service and in this way I will attain perfection.  I will always humbly pray for that.  In public I will perform Hari-sankirtana, my heart overcome with love.  Any activity that does not lead to My worshipable Lord is an obstacle.

16 samsara batojare     kama-phanse banhi mare

phukari kahaye haridasa

karaha bhakata-sanga     prema-katha-rasa-ranga

tabe habe bipada binasa

When arrested by the highwaymen of material illusion, bound about the neck with ropes of lust, and about to take his last breath, the devotee of Lord Hari calls out for the Lord’s help and is saved.  O devotees, call out in this way, glorifying the nectar topics of pure love for Krsna.  Then the calamity of repeated birth and death will come to an end.

17 stri-putra bandhaba jata     mari jabe sata sata

apanake hao sabadhana

muni se bisaye hata     na bhajinu hari-pada

mora ara nahi paritrana

Hundreds and hundreds of women, children and other relatives will someday die.  Take care of yourself.  I, who am very fallen, am already killed by sense gratification.  I would not worship Lord Hari’s feet.  Now I have no protection.

18 ramacandra kabiraja     sei sange mora kaja

tanra sanga binu saba sunya

jadi haya janma punah     tanra sanga haya jena

tabe haya narottama dhanya

I desire the association of Ramcandra Kaviraja.  Without his company the entire world is a desert.  If I must take birth again, I would feel myself fortunate to have his association.

19 apana bhajana-katha     na kahiba jatha tatha

ihate haio sabadhana

na kariha keha rosa     na laiho mora dosa

pranamaha bhaktera carana

I will not describe the specific devotional activities of each devotee.  Perform your devotional service carefully.  Don’t become angry.  Don’t find fault with others.  Offer obeisances to the devotees’ feet.

20 sri-gauranga prabhu more bolana je bani

taha kahi bhala manda kichui na jani

Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu has enabled me to write these words.  Without His mercy I am simply a fool who cannot distinguish right from wrong.
