6. My past karma pushed me into Kali-yuga's sins. In this life i did not dive into the nectar of Lord Krishna's holy names.

7. O people, please worship Lord Krishna's holy names. All else is an illusion. Don't walk by the path where Yamaraja will follow you.

8. Lord Krishna's name and Lord Hari's name are very sweet. He who worships Lord Krishna is very wise.

Song 156 (Gurjari-raga)

 

1. (Refrain) kabe prabhu anugraha habe

bishaya-basana-pasha kabe moha habe nasha

tabe bujhi mora habe gati

tumi prabhu dayamaya e radha-mohana kaya

siddha kara e-i ta kakuti

 

 

1. (Refrain) When will the Lord be merciful to me? When will the noose of material desires around my neck be cut? When will I go to Vrindavana?

2. The material world bears suffering as its only fruit. I shall go to a place where I know there is only intense bliss. Then all material sufferings will flee far away. I will go to the rasa-dance arena on the Yamuna's banks. There I will roll on the ground.

3. If I become fortunate I will see the Deity of Lord Krishna on Govardhana Hill. Will I be able to do that? When will my body, mind, and heart run to Radha-kunda and Shyama-kunda?

4. I know the destination I will attain if I bathe in those two kundas and die in the place around them. Radhamohana dasa says: O Lord, You are very merciful. Please grant me these perfections. In a voice choked with emotion I beg this of You.

 

Song 157 (Dhanashi-raga)

 

1. (Refrain) nidanera bandhu tumi shuniyachi hari

muni papi duracara sadhana-bhajana-hina

1. (Refrain) O Lord Hari, I have heard that You are the friend of persons on the verge of death. I am a sinner. I am very ill-behaved. I have no spiritual activities and no devotion. Now I am on the verge of death.

2. Horrible old-age has come to me. My teeth and everything else are all gone. Only my wicked material desires have not gone away. My hair is white. Still I decorate this body with nice garments. O Lord, I have become a fool, a madman.

3. I know this body is only made of clay. For some time the clay of this body turns this way and that, but in the end it returns to the earth from which it came. What a mistake I made! I carefully anointed this body with sandal paste and fragrant oils.

4. If a person blind from birth falls into a deep hole, he is helpless. Someone else must pull him out. In the same way if a person with eyes to see falls into the well of this world of birth and death, he will drown unless someone comes to save him.

5. O Lord Hari, I am tormented by the disease of living in this world of birth and death. Your holy name is the medicine for that disease. This I have heard from the scriptures and from the mouths of the saintly devotees. O Lord Hari, I take shelter of You. To Gopala dasa please give the boat of Your feet. In that boat carry him to the farther shore of this world of birth and death.

 

Song 158 (Dhanashi-raga)

 

1. sakala baishnaba gosa-i daya kara more

dante trina dhari kahe e dina pamare

2. shri-guru-carana ara shri-krishna-chaitanya

pada-padma pa-oya-iya more kara dhanya

3. toma sabara karuna bina iha prapti naya

bishesha ayogya muni kahila nishcaya

4. bancha-kalpa-taru ha-o karuna-sagara

e-i te bharasa muni dhari ye antara

5. guna lesha nahi mora aparadhera sima

ama uddhariya loke dekha-o mahima

6. nama-sankirtana ruci ara prema-dhana

e radha-mohane deha ha-iya sa-karuna

 

 

1. O saintly Vaishnavas, please be merciful to me! Placing a blade of grass between his teeth, a poor wretch speaks these words.

2. Please give to me the great treasure that is taking shelter of the feet of the spiritual master and the lotus feet of Shri Krishna Chaitanya.

3. Without your mercy I cannot attain thats helter. I am very unqualified to attain that shelter. That is certain.

4. You are all kalpa-taru trees. You are oceans of mercy. I have faith in that. That faith I keep in my heart.

5. I have no virtues. I stand at the apex of all offenses. If you can deliver even fallen me, you will show your great glories to the world.

6. Therefore please kindly give to this Radhamohana dasa the gift of attraction to chanting the Lord's holy names. Please give to him a great treasure of ecstatic spiritual love.

 

Song 159 (Shri-raga)

 

1. radha-natha bada aparupa lila

kishora kishori du-i eka mile nabadwipe prakaiya

2. radha-natha bada aparupa se

shri-chaitanya name hina-jane daya tapata-kancana de

3. radha-natha sangi aparupa tara

nita-i adwaita shribasa swarupa raya ramananda ara

4. radha-natha ki kahiba taba ranga

sanatana rupa raghunatha lokanatha bhaa-yuga sange

5. radha-natha e saba bhakata meli

na kaila kirtana abeshe nartana prema-dana kutuhali

6. radha-natha bada abhagiya mu-i

se-kale thakitu prema-dane pa-itu kena na karila tu-i

7. radha-natha bada-i rahila duhkha

janama ha-ila takhana nahila dekhite na pa-inu sukha

8. radha-natha ki jani kahite ami

gaurasundara dasera bharasa uddhara kariba tumi

 

 

1. Radha's master enjoys very wonderful pastimes. A teenage boy and a teenage girl have joined together in a single form, a form manifest in Navadvipa.

2. Radha's master is very wonderful. Now He calls Himself by the name Shri Chaitanya. His form is splendid like molten gold. He is very merciful to the poor fallen souls.

3. Radha's master has wonderful companions. His companions include Lord Nitai, Lord Advaita, Shrivasa, Svarupa Damodara, and Ramananda Raya.

4. O master of Radha, how can I describe Your pastimes with Sanatana Gosvami, Rupa Gosvami, Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, Lokanatha Gosvami, Raghunatha Bhaa Gosvami, and Gopala Bhaa Gosvami?

5. O master of Radha, meeting with the devotees, You enjoy pastimes of kirtana. Overcome with ecstatic love, you dance. There is a great tumult. You give everyone the gift of ecstatic spiritual love.

6. O master of Radha, I am very unfortunate. Why was I not present at that time to receive Your gift of ecstatic spiritual love?

7. O master of Radha, I am very unhappy. I was not born at that time. I did not attain the happiness of seeing You.

8. O master of Radha, what do I know to speak about You? Gaurasundara dasa simply has faith that You will deliver him.

 

Song 160 (Shri-raga)

 

1. radha-natha dekhite lagiche bhaya

tanu-bala hrasa ara buddhi-nasha kakhana ki jani haya

2. radha-natha sakali chadiya gela

danta anta gela badhira ha-ila nayane na dekhi bhala

3. radha-natha tumi se karuna-sindhu

toma bina ara keba uddharibe tumi sakalera bandhu

4. radha-natha age saba nibedaya

maranamaya byadhi-grasta haya smarana nahika raya

5. radha-natha ara kichu nahi bhaya

brishabhanu-suta-carana-sebane pache kripa nahi haya

6. radha-natha e-i nibedayi ami

brishabhanu-suta-pade dasi kari angikara kara tumi

7. radha-natha e-i mora abhilasha

nibhrita nikunje nija pade leha e gaurasundara dasa

 

 

1. O master of Radha, I am afraid even to look. My bodily strength is much less. My intelligence is destroyed. What do I know now?

2. O master of Radha, everything has gone away. My teeth are gone. My digestion is gone. My hearing is bad. I do not see well.

3. O master of Radha, You are an ocean of mercy. But for You, who will deliver me? You are the friend of everyone.

4. O master of Radha, I have told You everything. Now I am in the grip of a fatal disease. Now I cannot remember anything.

5. O master of Radha, I am not afraid. Please be merciful and allow me to serve the feet of Vrishabhanu's daughter.

6. O master of Radha, I place this prayer before You. Please accept me. Please make me a gopi maidservant at the feet of Vrishabhanu's daughter.

7. O master of Radha, that is my desire. Please make this Gaurasundara dasa into a gopi, a gopi that in s secluded forest grove has fallen in love with Your feet.

 

Song 161 (Saranga-raga)

 

1. (Refrain) teja mana hari-bimukhanki sanga

yaka sangahi kumati upajatahi

bhajana ki padata bibhanga

2. satata asata patha le-i yo yayata

upajata kamini sanga

shamana-duta paramayu parakhata

dura sane nehara-i ranga

3. ata eba se hari-nama sara parama madhu

pana karaha chodi bhanga

hari-carana-saroruha mati rahum

gopala-dasa-mana bhringa

 

 

1. (Refrain) Shun, O my heart, people who have turned their faces away from Lord Hari. Association with them will give birth to wicked thoughts. Association with them will break into pieces your devotion to the Lord.

2. Association with them will make you walk always on the wrong path, will make you associate with women who are filled with lust, will make the Yamadutas happy as they watch you from afar.

3. Therefore please shun the association of such persons. instead please sip the sweet honey of lord Hari's holy names. Ah! Gopala dasa's heart has now become a bumblebee intoxicated by tasting the honey at the lotus flower of Lord Hari's feet.

 

Song 162 (Ashabari-raga)

 

1. (Refrain) bhaja mana nanda-kumara

bhabiya dekhaha bha-i gati nahi ara

2. dhana jana putra adi keba apanara

ata eba karaha mana hari-pada sara

3. ku-sanga chadiya sada sat-sange thaka

parama nipuna iha nama bali daka

4. tara nama-lila-gane sada ha-o matta

se carana-dhana pabe ha-iba kritartha

5. radha-mohana bale mana ki baliba tore

samsara yatana ara nahi deha more

 

 

1. (Refrain) O my heart, please worship Nanda's son. O my brother, please gaze at Him with great love. There is no shelter but Him.

2. What are wealth, followers, sons, and all else to you? O my heart, please stay at Lord Hari's feet.

3. Always turn from bad association. Associate with the saintly devotees. Very carefully chant the Lord's holy names.

4. Always be intoxicated by the singing the Lord's holy names and glorifying the Lord's pastimes. Then you will attain the treasure that is the Lord's feet. You will attain the goal of life.

5. Radhamohana dasa says: O my heart, this I ask of you. Please do not do anything that will keep me in the torments of this world of birth and death.

 

Song 163 (Dhanashi-raga)

 

1. (Refrain) bhaja mana satata ha-iya nirdwandwa

radha-krishna parama-sukha-dayaka rasamaya paramananda

2. cancala bishaya-bisha sukha mani kha-osi

na janasi iha mati manda

para-kale nikaa marana-duhkha-deyaba

bujhaha abahum karu andha

3. mohe duhkha-bhagi karana naha samucita

to hama janama bandhu

nija duhkha jani abahum smarana karu

yo tuhum karunaka sindhu

4. o pada-pankaja- prema-sudha pibi pibi

dura kara nija duhkha-kanda

e radha-mohana kaha tejaha micha-i moha

yaichana hata nija bandha

 

 

1. (Refrain) O my heart, please turn away from the dualities of this world. Always worship Shri Shri Radha and Krishna, who are sweet like nectar, who are filled with bliss, and who delight the devotees.

2. O my heart, you are a fool. You do not know anything. You think drinking the poison of fickle material sense gratification will make us happy. Please know that in the course of time that poison becomes a monster. It brings torment and death. It makes one blind.

3. O my heart, it is not right that you make me suffer in this way. You and I have been friends from birth. Aware that material sense gratification will bring only torment, you should meditate on the person who is like an ocean of mercy.

4. Sip, sip the sweet nectar of love for His lotus feet. Throw far away the sense gratification that becomes the root of torments. This Radhamohana dasa says: Turn away from the illusions of this world, illusions that will keep us bound in this prison.

 

Song 164 (Bhaiyari-raga)

 

1. brajendra-nandana bhaje ye-i jana

sa-phala jibana tara

tahara upama bede nahi sima

tri-bhubane nahi ara

2. emana madhaba na bhaje manaba

kakhana mariya yabe

se-i se adhama prahariya yama

raurabe krimite khabe

3. tarapara ara papi nahi chara

samsara jagata majhe

kona kale tara gati nahi ara

micha-i bhramicha kaje

4. locana dasa bhakati asha

hari guna kahi likhi

hena rasa sara mati nahi ara

tara mukha nahi dekhi

 

 

1. They who worship Lord Krishna attain the goal of life. Their lives are fruitful. In the Vedas no one is their equal. In all the three worlds no one is their equal.

2. They who do not worship Lord Krishna are the lowest of the low. When they die Yamaraja will punish them. They will go to the hell named Raurava, where they will be eaten by worms.

3. These persons are sinners. They are worthless like a pile of ashes. In this world of birth and death no one is more of a sinner than they. They have no good destination. They are bewildered. They work in vain.

4. I, Locana dasa, yearn to attain devotion to Lord Hari. I speak and write of Lord Hari's glories. I will not even look at the face of anyone who does not find delight in tasting the sweet nectar of Lord Hari's glories.

 

Song 165 (Shri-raga)

 

1. shri-krishna-bhajana lagi samsare a-inu

maya-jale bandi haiya briksha samana hainu

2. sneha-lata bedi bedi tanu kaila shesha

kida rupe nari tahe hridaye prabeshe

3. phala-rupe putra kanya dale bhangi pade

kala-rupi bihanga upare basa kare

4. khadite na pa-ila gacha shukha-iya gela

samsarera dabanala tahate lagila

5. durasha durbasana du-i uhe dhuma-iya

phukara karaye locana marilama puriya

6. e-ga-o e-ga-o mora baishnaba gosa-i

karunara jala sinca tabe raksha pa-i

 

 

1. To worship Lord Krishna I came to this world of birth and death. Then Maya caught me in her net. Then I became dull and stunted like a tree.

2. The vine of material love coiled and coiled around me. Manifesting the form of a tree-boring insect, a woman entered my heart.

3. Manifesting the forms of fruits, sons and daughters grew on my branches and fell to the ground. Manifesting the form of a bird, time made its nest in my branches.

4. Gradually I became dry and withered. I could hardly stand erect. Then the blazing forest fire of birth and death came.

5. Wicked desires and false hopes were the two streams of smoke that at once arose. This Locana dasa called out, I am dying!

6. "Save me! Save me, O Vaishnava Gosai! Throw upon me the water of your mercy and save me!"

 

Song 166 (Suha-i-raga)

 

1. nikunja nibase maha-rasa-rase

rasika-shekhara ye

so radha-ballabha jagata durlabha

amara ballabha se

2. yara banka ankhi gopi hiya dekhi

hoyata tikhini shara

so gopikeshwara bishwera ishwara

se-i mora praneshwara

3. gopi-kuca-kumbhe yo kara pallabe

hoyata parama shota

kae bhaba-bandha tachu pada-dwandwa

munira manasa lobha

4. yo pahum gokule gopira dukule

cora-ola hasi hasi

e gokula dase tara pada ashe

dhyayaye dibasa nishi

 

 

1. Radha's beloved, who is the crown of rasikas, who enjoys pastimes in the forest, who tastes the nectar of rasa-dance pastimes, and whois rarely found in this world, is my dear Lord.

2. His crooked glances are sharp arrows that pierce the gopis' hearts. He is the master of the gopis. He is the master of all the worlds. He is the master of my life.

3. His hands are leaves and flowers in the vases of the gopish' breasts. His feet cut the bonds of repeated birth and death. The sages' hearts yearn to attain Him.

4. He is the master of Gokula. Laughing and laughing, He stole the gopis' garments. This Gokula dasa yearns to attain Him. Gokula dasa meditates on Him night and day.

 

Song 167 (Dhanashi-raga)

 

1. hari hari amara emana dasha habe

bishama daruna bisha janjala uibe

2. dara sukha-bhoge mu-i haba birakata

sharana la-iba shuka baishnaba bhagabata

3. karanga kothali hate galaya kantha diya

madhukuri magi khaba braja-basi haiya

4. samsara-sukhera mukhe anala jwaliya

thuthu kariya kabe ya-ibe chadiya

5. jati kula abhimana sakala chadiba

gopalera asha kata dibase phaliba

 

 

1. Hari! Hari! I will attain that state. The power of this horrible poison will be broken.

2. I will renounce the joys of houshold life. I will take shelter of the Bhagavatam that is Shukadeva's book and the many Bhagavatams that are the Vaishnavas.

3. I will reside in Vraja. A pathwork cloth around my neck and a bowl in my hand, I will beg as a madhukari. In that way I will eat.

4. When will I spit far away the flames of material sense gratification that burn in my mouth?

5. I will renounce my family, social station, pride, and everything else. Ah! After how many days will Gopala dasa's desire be fulfilled?

 

Song 168 (Dhanashi-raga)

 

1. hari he dayala mora jaya radha-natha

bara bara e-i bara laha nija satha

2. bahu yoni bhrami natha la-inu sharana

nija gune kripa kara adhama-tarana

3. jagata-tarana tumi jagata-jibana

toma chada kara nahi he radha-ramana

4. bhubana-mangala tumi bhubanera pati

tumi upekshile natha ki ha-ibe gati

5. bhabiya dekhinu e-i jagata majhare

toma bina keha na-i e rame uddhare

 

 

1. O master of Radha! All glory to You! O Lord Hari! Please be merciful to me! Again and again and again I beg: Please accept me as one of Your associates!

2. O Lord, wandering in this world, I took shelter of many different wombs. O deliverer of the fallen, please be merciful to me.

3. You are the savior of the worlds. You are the life of the worlds. O Lord Radha-ramana, please do not turn away from me.

4. You are the auspiciousness of the worlds. You are the master of the worlds. What will happen to persons who turn from You?

5. I have carefully observed this world. O Lord, none but You can deliver this Rama dasa.
