(bhaja) (braja-bane radha-krishna)

1) My dear mind, how foolish you are! Oh just worship, oh just worship the lotus feet of Radha and Krishna in the forests of Vraja! (Oh, without such worship there is no means of spiritual advancement!) Just worship the lotus feet of Radha and Krishna in the forests of Vraja!

2) Just worship Gaura, Gadadhara, Advaita, and Lord Nityananda, the original spiritual master! (Oh, knowing Lord Gaura and Lord Krishna to be the same!) (Oh, knowing the spiritual master to be very dear to Krishna!) Just remember the dear associates of Lord Chaitanya, namely Shrivasa Thakura, Haridasa Thakura, Murari Gupta, and Mukunda Datta! (Oh, in deep love for Lord Gaura, you should remember, just remember!) (Just remember the two great personalities Shrivasa Thakura and Haridasa Thakura!)

Just remember all the sadhus who follow the path of Shri Rupa Goswami and who are absorbed in the ecstasy of bhajan! (Oh, if you actually want residence in the land of Vraja!) (Just remember the sadhus who are followers of Shrila Rupa Goswami!)

Song 2

Song 2

(1)

bhavo na bhavo na, mana, tumi ati dushöa

(vishaya-vishe acho he)

kama-krodha-lobha-moha-madadi-avishöa

(ripur bashe acho he)

1) My dear mind, you have not thought of this! You have not thought of this! You are very wicked! (Oh, you are deeply sunk in the poison of worldly sense gratification!) You are overwhelmed by lust, anger, greed, illusion, madness, and so on! (Oh, you are under the sway of the enemy!)

(2)

asad-varta-bhukti-mukti-pipasa-akrishöa

(asat-katha bhalo lage he)

pratishöhasha-kuöinaöi-shaöhatadi-pishöa

(sarala to’ ho’le na he)

ghireche tomare, bhai, e sab arishöa

(e sab to’ shatru he)

2) You are attracted by a thirst for hearing mundane news, enjoying material sense objects, and seeking liberation! (Oh, you think that nonsensical talk sounds very pleasant!) You have become crushed by the desire for fame, as well as by hypocrisy and crooked dealings! (Oh, you are not very simple or straightforward!) You are completely surrounded, dear brother, by all these inauspicious signs of death! (Oh, these are indeed your deadly enemies!)

(3)

e sab na chede’ kise pa’be radha-krishna

(jatane chado, chado he)

sadhu-sanga vina ar kotha tava ishöa

(sadhu-sanga koro, koro he)

vaishnava-carane maja, ghucibe anishöa

(ek-bar bheve’ dekho he)

3) If you do not give up all these things, then how will you attain Radha and Krishna? (Oh, carefully abandon, just abandon them!) Other than the association of sadhus, where else is your real benefit to be found? (Oh, just keep the company, keep the company of saintly devotees!) Just immerse yourself in the lotus feet of a Vaishnava, and all unwanted things will disappear! (Oh, just think about all of this for once and see for yourself!)
